Apprentice etiquitte? Help!

Recommended Posts

So I've been apprenticing for just under a year, (it'll be a year in april) and while I have been  learning a few things slowly I'm starting to wonder if the person who is supposed to be teaching me is taking advantage of free labour. 

I've done the set up and take down, and reception and cleaning. He's only let me draw two (very simple) final stencils and I haven't started practicing on fake skin yet. I'm fine with being patient but I want more opinions on this. 

He also wants a certain amount in tuition every year even though I've already worked for him for free for a year. Is this normal?

He's also weird about me getting tattoos from other people (when it was their specific style and he couldn't have done it) and I was wondering if you guys think this is a breach of etiquitte? What would you expect from your apprentice? What other rules do you have? 

Everyone I've talked to in person has had very non formal apprenticeships so I haven't had any help there. I just want to know what is the norm in an apprenticeship

You will only get out what you put in.

what are you doing when he/she is tattooing 

what questions are you asking when they have finished?

 

being wierd about getting tattoos from someone else i can kind of understand if you dont trust them to be able to do it why are you working there?
