    Tattoo healing; lines change?

    What is it that causes a halo like this? Has the ink been put on too deeply? I understand that it's an awkward area to tattoo - thin skin and near/on bone - but is this something that's caused by the tattoo artist or more by the placement?

    How much do Apprenticeships usually cost?

    He is very experienced and the shop has a great reputation. I'm in the south-east of England, outside of London. The shop has a great reputation and the previous apprentice is already confident enough to have plans to start her own shop so he must have been a good tutor, her work looks very tidy. He says she paid £2.5k for her apprenticeship to cover his time and the use of materials.
  3. I've been offered an apprenticeship for a price and I'm just curious to hear - how much do you or have you charged to take on an apprenticeship, how much have you paid to do an apprenticeship or how much do you think is fair? I'm cautious only because there's no formality to this training - I come from a higher education background and currently work in education so I'm just a little worried about handing money over to someone I currently don't know very well for training that has no course material or qualifications at the end of it. The shop has a good reputation and my mentor has been tattooing for decades. I'm trying to get in touch with his current apprentice to see how she has found the training.
  4. Hello, I'm a creative arts for theatre and film graduate that's rediscovered a love for drawing and uncovered a passion for the world of tattoos. I just got offered an apprenticeship and I can't wait to learn. I love neotraditional, chaotic blackwork and blastovers. My instagram is https://www.instagram.com/jasminehaskell/ and I'd love to see yours too.
