Existential questions are usually hard to answer, but this one is easy. There are many reasons why we exist.
For one thing, with our unique line of synthetic tattooable products, we offer an experience akin to tattooing real skin, so apprentice tattoo artists can practice without making mistakes on real clients.
Our products also allow experienced artists to try their hands at new techniques, experiment with new equipment, or create their very own 3D portfolio. Artists with a 3D portfolio can show potential clients how their work looks on real “skin” firsthand.

Basically, A Pound of Flesh serves tattoo artists by providing canvases for their “bolt of lighting” inspirations and their pursuit of becoming better at their craft.

For a detailed video showing how to apply a stencil to any APOF synthetic tattooable product, see our tutorial.

We like to say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That’s why we recommend this tried and true method:

1. Roll a generous amount of Original Speed Stick deodorant onto the desired stencil placement site. 

2. Place your stencil and press down firmly to ensure all of it transfers to your APOF product. 

3. Carefully lift the stencil paper off the synthetic tattooable surface. 

4. If the stencil is satisfactory, blow dry it for 5–10 minutes. 

5. Allow the stencil to dry overnight before tattooing.

Take a paper cloth or towel and soak it with bleach. Use this to rub the stencil off your APOF product.
If the stencil is stubborn and won’t rub away, lay the bleach-soaked towel or cloth over it for an hour or longer. Then, try wiping the stencil away again.

Tattoo your APOF product much more slowly than you would tattoo a real client. We recommend using a hand speed of approximately 10% slower than your usual pace.

We also recommend you spend much more time packing in color than you would on actual skin.

Be sure to turn up your power supply so your machine is operating at a higher voltage, and remember to clean your needles regularly throughout the process; this prevents the silicone from clogging them.

Take A&D ointment and wipe your APOF product down with your finger tips after tattooing. In fact, you should also use A&D throughout the tattooing process to wipe away excess ink.

Much like tattooing on skin, all ink is permanent. Therefore, our APOF tattooable surfaces are not reusable.
