New chapter added by guest writer Halo

Posted on Mon, February 01, 2016

We now have a fifth guest chapter added, this one by guest writer Halo whom you may remember from last year's Inkmasters. His excellent chapter is an introduction to Photoshop: Taking The Digital Plunge. His writing style is easy and personable ion a way that makes his encyclopedic knowledge easier to digest. I've been using Photoshop for almost 20 years and learned several new things from this chapter. Even if you don't think of yourself as a digital kind of person, it's worth taking a quick look just to see what all the fuss is about. The chapter is really intemded for people who have yet to take the plunge, but it's a good read even for experienced Photoshop users. You can find it in the Reinventing The Tattoo electronic edition in Chepter 5.21.

We also got a great addition to Chapter 6.21, Working With Large Stencils, written by Don McDonald. It was already an excellent chapter but this is sort of a cherry on top, showing the making of a backpiece stencil You can find the new material at the end of the chapter.

More new material is on the way, including a chapter by Phil Garcia (Yeah!) and a 2-hour video on coverups, which I'm editing right now.
