So, right to it!

I would like Lo'wa to be a tattooist as her profession, and was wondering a few things.

As there is no 'Tattooing' or 'Drawing' skill in the skill list right now, would tattooing fall under Crafting, or maybe Cosmetology?

Can I begin her with her 10RB Crafting as 'Crafting: Tattoos', or something similar? If not, can I spend SP skills on the skill 'Tatooing' even if it is not in the skill list? Or should this skill fall under 'Cosmetology: Tatooing', maybe?

I noticed that there is no tattoo kit in the price list too.

May I make one up to purchase IC, like the artists' kit?—or Lo'wa could craft her own kit IC from wood, bone and/or metal.

I understand the knowledge is still in development—!

That's right, heaps of development still. If you would like to make a list of the tools a tattooist would need I can put them on the pricelist and maybe if I'm clever make a kit (the coding is pretty tricky).

We're happy to add Drawing as a skill to the Skill List. Tattooing might make it, still discussing.

That's great, thanks for getting back to my questions so quick.

The tattoo set/things needed in traditional tattooing:
Tattoo Tool Set (5) Five tools with long handles which are often made of wood, bamboo or bone, with needles in various widths attached to the end. Needles are usually made of bone, though wood or metal can be used. 10gn
Jar of ink (black)
Jar of ink (white)
Jar of ink (red, blue, yellow)
Extra needles (5)
Tapping stick
I kept it pretty generic (modelled after the artist's and scribe's sets, although I thought a tattoist's tools would be dearer since they will be used over years and years & probably be quite meaningful to the tattoist).

So would her tattooing skill come under Drawing or Cosmetology?

I'm keen to help out if I'm gonna be playing here, as you say, much development! Where can I make myself useful? :D

I'd say put it under drawing for now incase tattooing gets added, you will always use drawing. I can't promise this list will go up quickly but I'll add it to my long list of things to do, for now you have my permission to take it as a set. 10gn for just the needles, 15gn for needles and ink sets.
