The Only World Class Alternative to Traditional Tattoo Apprenticeships

Tattoo artistry is a specialized creative trade that guards it's best practices and requires apprentices to seek out master craftsmen as mentors. The process of securing a mentor can take years, even for the most dedicated and committed. If accepted, being taught the craft and being trusted to perform it can take years. An aspiring tattoo artist will not find work without completing a thorough apprenticeship, yet the risk in a traditional apprenticeship is the lack of any guarantees what-so-ever. There are no guarantees of completion, quality or employment.   

A.R.T. has found a better way.

The Only World Class Alternative to Traditional Body Piercing  Apprenticeships

Like tattooing, body piercing artistry is a specialized trade that guards it's best practices and requires apprentices to seek out master craftsmen as mentors. The process of securing a mentor is arduous, even for the most dedicated and committed. Apprentices often trade in a year of their life doing remedial, unpaid, grunt work while learning the trade. 

A.R.T. has found a better way.
