    My Introduction

    What's up everyone, Here's to hoping I'm not too old to start a career in tattooing. I'm 32 and it's always been an interest of mine to be a tattoo artist. Providing for my family came before my dreams of tattooing and I instead pursued a career that pays well and provides great benefits for my wife and kids but, every day I go to work feeling incomplete, bored and unhappy. I've picked up my pencil recently and started drawing portraits for the first time (my strength has always been cartoony kind of drawings, you can follow my progress on instagram 'ayynori') and it seems like I still got it. I downloaded madhatter's black book from this site and had it printed and binded at staples so I can read it more comfortably. It didn't take long to see the value in the information on this site so I paid for my membership. I'm looking forward to reading and getting any tips I can from this forum. Hopefully, years from now I can give something back. Thank you all in advance.

    Hey Everyone

    Hi everyone!! Looking forward to learn from you all!
  3. Hi every one my name is Amanda! I just recently stumbled upon this forum when looking up information about how to pursue an apprenticeship, and I couldn't be happier. From the threads I've read so far everyone here seems really interested in helping each person better themselves, and all of the advice seems solid. So to start off, I'm 21 years old and have always been interested in art! When I was younger I would spend all of my time drawing. My family really encouraged me. When I got older I became discouraged when I compared my skills to other kids my age and I pretty much stopped drawing seriously. I have 7 tattoos, 4 of which I got just this year. I've finally found my artist! I guess you could say I was addicted to getting them for a few months. This really inspired me to pick up the pencil again and try drawing once more. I was able to get right back into it and the things I've drawn in the past few months have really upped my confidence level. Basically, my boyfriend and close friends convinced me to buy some machines from a good friend and I've really been considering looking for an apprenticeship a little further down the road. I'd like to refine my drawing abilities and start working on creating more tattoo friendly compositions for now. I respect the trade of tattooing too much to try tattooing any of my friends before pursuing a formal apprenticeship, but I have dabbled on a few slabs of fake skin. I'm hoping with the help of this forum, and all of you, that I'll be able to learn what I need to know to get my foot in the door and make tattooing my career! Thanks for looking

    Hello Everyone

    Hello, First let me start off by saying how happy I am to have stumbled onto this forum. I joined immediately. I plan on purchasing the lifetime membership. I started out with the ol' stick and poke when I was 13yrs old. By the time I was 14 I built a "electric pen" my dad found it and instead of Busting my ass Dad took me and the elect pen to a tat shop. The old school artist Convinced me to stop doing homemade tats and to draw draw draw. Life took over but I never lost passion for art and Tattooing. Now I'm in my 30's and I have a family to support so a official apprentiship is out of the question. I started with bbp info and have now moved onto machine tuning and techniques.again so happy to be here thanks to everyone here that contributes.

    Hello Everyone

    Hi, I posted here a few times but I guess I should give a proper introduction. I'm a 25 year old female apprentice from New Jersey. I am a full time graphic designer and web designer by trade. I apprentice tattooing after work and on weekends. I'm mostly into old school traditional flash and portraits.
