The TikTok star recently completed her first-ever tattoo on a real-life person and unveiled it online, and the clip soon went viral as many people urged her to quit
An amateur tattooist has gone viral after sharing her first-ever inking – but it didn’t go as planned as people flocked to the video to beg her to not do another one.
TikTok star Sam, @ descendantofsalemwitches, dreams of one day becoming a professional tattoo artist – but she might have some way to go.
She recently completed her first tattoo on a real-life person, and unveiled it in a TikTok video that has since gone viral, receiving over five million views.
It also received countless comments, mostly from people urging Sam to quit – saying she should have practised more before committing to tattooing someone.
In the video, Sam unveils the tattoo which is a minimalist outline of a woman’s face with a rose over one eye, which was inked onto a red-haired woman’s back.
Captioning the video, Sam wrote: “I have to say it’s not bad for my first time tattooing on someone other than myself. I was nervous.”
But it appears that other TikTok users didn’t agree with her, as many were not impressed.
One wrote: “Did you do it blindfolded while jumping on a trampoline?”
And another said: “Why do something so massive for your first time?”
“You gotta start from somewhere, but bro”, added a third user. “You should’ve practised more. It is bad and that’s just a fact.”
And another user had creative feedback, and wrote: “Sausage fingers, wonky everything, bad line quality, lashes are – ooft. Please don’t tell me that’s an infinity symbol, oh Lord.”
Sam then replied asking if the user had anything else to say, to which they wrote: “Yeah, do not tattoo anyone until you’re actually ready.”
In the clip, Sam reveals her artwork by wiping her client’s back with a paper towel – but that angered TikTok viewers too as people noticed she wasn’t wearing protective gloves.
One user said: “If you actually want a future in tattooing, take this down. No decent tattoo shop would hire someone blatantly ignoring biohazard safety like this.”
And another commented: “No gloves? Did you close your eyes during the bloodborne pathogens training?”
