Do I need a display on my graphics tablet for painting?

Do most digital painters use display tablets? Is it a requirement, or can I use a tablet without a screen?

If a screen isn't used, how would the artist see their work? I use my PC, a laptop, and an android tablet - all three have screens on which to view the work. Even using a Wacom or other tablet purchased without a screen must be plugged into something that will display the work.

Or is the question one concerning applying paint to the tablet?
