Is it important for a tattoo artist to learn calligraphy?

Recommended Posts

I've been dabbling in calligraphy for a few weeks and just starting to get some basics down. I've been thinking of taking some classes on skill share to improve my fonts. My question is, is it even important? A lot of artists I see just use Microsoft word fonts. 

In your opinion is it worth my time? Is there considerable benefits to learning this or is it just easier to copy paste fonts like a lot of other artists. 

Thanks

A basic knowledge of it is good enough.  You never use any of the penmanship skills, since varying thicknesses in line work are built up rather than accomplished in one fluid stroke.  But, hand written lettering always looks better than some "Word" font.
