Best beginner tattoo kit?

i am a decorative painter/ muralist, and i would like to learn to tattoo. i am not interested in doing it professionally, but i would like to be able to do my own tattoos and my husbands. is there a beginners kit that you would recommend and any literature that would be helpful? any other tips?
Update: hey guys, ive been a professioanl painter/artist for over 13 years. i would not apply a tattoo unless i was sure i knew what i was doing and was sure it would turn out perfectly. i want to learn the right way to do it....i just dont want to do it for everyone else. its for me
