I'm an actress so I am taking professional makeup courses right now and I am having a blast. StarObsolete 6 years I'm squeamish with needles being poked in me, so I'm not sure if I could tattoo others...=P ilanac13 6 years i love the thought of being a tattoo artist, but i think that if i were to make a mistake on someone , i'd rather it not be permanent. lostgirl-XD 6 years i love tattoos but if i made a simple error i will scar someone for life. and i love makeup and if i screw up anything is easy to repair that starofsorrow 6 years I love tattoos! And what's better than having your artwork be on a person permanently? snarkypants 6 years i strongly dislike tattoos, so i'd def rather be a makeup artist dianadilettante 6 years I'd love to be a makeup artist! It's an art all by itself. simplystella 6 years They both look like really interesting careers, but I'd pick Make-up artist for the same reason as Spectra (I personally make so many mistakes while applying make-up, I would make a terrible tattoo artist!!). Not to mention, as a tattoo artist you would have to tattoo weird things on disgusting body parts on stupid college-aged boys. Not my cup of tea.. :P Spectra 6 years Makeup artist for one BIG reason: If you screw up, you can always wash it off and start over! If you screw up a tat, that person's stuck with it forever.
