Tattoo Apprenticeship Workshop

This is your first step to a Career as a Professional Tattoo Artist - Learn how to tattoo

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.
