Certificate, Tattoo School of Thailand
Tattoos is a form of body art. The most common method in modern times is the electric tattoo machine, which inserts ink into the skin via a single needle or a group of needles that are soldered onto a bar, which is attached to an oscillating unit. The unit rapidly and repeatedly drives the needles in and out of the skin, usually 80 to 150 times a second. I wanted to acquire the fundamental skill of tattooing as this body art has been applied in medial aesthetic, including Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). I worked in a tattoo parlour for 2 weeks as an apprentice to earn this certificate.
