Can you tattoo without being able to draw?
But in that case don’t try to tattoo a portrait or a person. But you can’t be a tattoo artist at all without being able to draw steady lines and smooth shading.

How do you practice tattooing with a pencil?
Use a weighted pencil or pen to simulate the tattooing machine. Some tattooists recommend building hand strength by simulating the weight of the tattoo machine applicator. This machine uses an applicator heavier than a pen or pencil to drive ink into the sub-layers of the skin, leaving behind permanent skin art.
Can you tattoo over Sharpie?
Sharpies, although permanent, are easily erased with tattoo soaps or alcohol. The tattooing will lightly go over the on-skin drawing. As we tattoo the sharpie will gently wipe away leaving the client with a beautiful original new tattoo.
Can you tattoo yourself?
Unless you’re a professional tattoo artist tattooing your arm or leg, tattooing yourself is a bad idea. (I’m not even sure tattoo artists *do* tattoo themselves.) Even if you got the right equipment, and knew what you were doing with it, you’d still be ill-advised to tattoo yourself at home.
