Being a self taught artist is probably the most freeing and scary things that there is. There isn't really any one set person to tell you yes your are doing that correctly or not. You just obsess over it until you get it semi ok. Discovering a new medium is even worse. It is fun when you first begin and then it begins overwhelming in the middle and glorious towards the end (even though you never stop learning).
I have recently expanded my artistic knowledge into the art of tattooing. Fortunately I am not necessarily learning this trade on my own. I have multiple different mentors whom all of course teach me different things about this newly discovered medium; however it is majority left to me to learn and consume all that I can.
I have done 6 or so tattoos so far and I can not be more in love with the thought of this new skill and how far I could take it. As soon as I understood the foundations of this art, I immediately started romanticizing amazing works of permanent art on individuals from all over.
I cannot wait to grow in this and I must say how proud I am of my self thus far.
