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.
What do you think about the tattoo? Let us know in the comments…
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?”
