Practice makes perfect in anything you do, but unless you have a lot of friends willing to go under the needle for free ink it can be difficult for tattoo artists to build a respectable portfolio… until now! Tattoo Art Magazine created a moleskine style notebook of synthetic skin that displays the most common areas people get tattooed so that aspiring tattoo artists have something other than fruit and poultry to practice on. The entire idea behind the design project is a world filled with tattoo pride and not regret, and that’s something we can totally get behind. It still doesn’t include spellcheck or foreign language translation, so make sure you’re set with the image for life–regardless of how cool it looks in a notebook.

With 24 miniature cinder blocks and one pallet per set, this has everything you need to build a great foundation for the big box creation of your dreams.
