As cool and sexy tattooing may be, it’s also serious business. Needling and creating permanent art on people’s skin isn’t something to take lightly, and as a professional tattoo artist—you know that already.
While dedication, practice, apprenticeship, and artistic abilities are all important factors in becoming a skilled and talented tattoo artist, there is one factor that many artists overlook - lighting.
Lighting is essential in the makeup and skincare service industries for the simple fact that it can improve the brightness of the canvas being worked on—aka a client’s skin. Dark lighting in a room or shadows from working over someone, all contributes to the discoloration of the canvas. Lighting also helps in creating bright and detailed photos for portfolios, social media, and marketing opportunities.
Same with the tattoo industry.
Great professional lighting is like the snowball effect. It helps improve the artist's performance resulting in happy clients, an increase in recommendations and a higher reputation, and breathtaking content for social media bringing in more visualizations, visits, and booking. Score!
Great lighting can transform skilled tattoo artists into successful and booked-out tattoo artists.
The GLAMCOR MULTIMEDIA X (MMX) is one of our most popular lighting systems and a best-seller. It has a 4 legged telescope stand with 3 flexible arm wands, 2 LED light bars, 1 phone clip, and countless uses.
The MMX is popular among content creators for creating photos and Instagram and TikTok-worthy videos.
With a lighting system as advanced as the MMX, clients will feel comfortable knowing that you’ve invested in cutting-edge technology, are serious about giving them the best possible experience, and most importantly—the tattoo they’ve dreamed of.
The life of a tattoo artist isn’t easy, but the MMX definitely makes it easier. Check out our IG page for other ideas on how to use the MMX.
