    I don't know, but it seems to me that the colour of the light may be the most important concern - fluorescent with a yellow filter sounds - yech!

    I would think that you might want to work fairly close to your subject. Are you sure that a folder or an Autocord will permit what you need to do?

    Shooting b/w in colored light is similar to shooting with filters in neutral light. However, fluorescent tubes come in various color temperatures now. They are not all sickly green like they used to be.

    The way to do this, if you really want to nail it spot on, is to go in and shoot there ahead of time, and see what you get. See what color the lamps are, and try different filters on a test roll or two.

    2F/2F's suggestion about trial shots is right on!

    It may very well be that a good tatoo artist would be very particular about the colour temperature of the light he/she works in.

    And then, maybe not!
