      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

    Why hello there! I'm new to the site, stumbled across it two days ago and I haven't been able to get off of it since. Great investment I think in signing up for a membership. Especially being an apprentice, I'm hoping that it'll help me immensely. Little about myself, I am 20 years young. Female aspiring tattoo artist. I have been interested in being an artist since I was able to pick up a pencil basically. My great grandmother and mom were both artist so sitting down and finding someone to show me new drawing techniques or painting was never an issue. And helped keep the fire burning for my creative urges. Elementary and middle school just made it even better, a whole class deidcated to art was the main reason I even bothered to go later in life. I started submitting art to our little paper back then and everytime mine was published it just made it even more exhilirating to create something new. High school was no different, if not worse in encouraging my desire to be an artist. One, two, three classes if I could pull it off a year were art. I had even started signing away my lunch and study hall time for extra classes. From photography to clay to oil to just a pencil and paper I was hooked. And once I got to high school my art teachers and friends always told me my style of art preference would be wonderful for tattooing. And since my uncle is an artist himself just helped me to make the push to really get into it after hanging around the shop with him. I considered art schools right before graduating but unfortunatly they are far to expensive, and I'm more of a jump right in vs testing the waters kinda girl. So I started working right after high school, saved up for machines, supplies, books, flash, dvds you name it. Even saved for awhile to do permanent makeup in hopes of being able to find an apprenticship easier. Anyways two years later I finally got everything in order. I've been apprenticing since September. Tattooing since July. I've been studying piercing tattooing and permeant makeup the last two years. I would have started my apprenticship sooner, but ya know 18 on your own got bills to pay and such. I currently move to florida from chicago area (illinois) about 6 months ago give or take. Thankfully to my uncle I happened to fall into my apprenticship so you could say. Trying to look for a better mentor here pretty soon sadly. Idk what else to say really lol. So hopefully I'll get to know some of you, learn from all of you and hopefully do great work in the next few years! Nice to meet you all, (:
