Tips On How To Get Started As A Tattoo Artist

Today, tattooing has become a big booming industry with almost everyone of the new generation getting much enamored by the idea of getting a tattoo done on their body.

Due to this huge demand of tattooing and not enough tattoo artists to meet the demand, it is the right time to make your entry in the industry. If you are interested in seeing yourself work as a tattoo artist then there are a few fundamentals that you need to keep in mind.

This article will tell you exactly what you need to keep in mind while you learn the art of tattooing.

Firstly, you need to know that if you do not have some basic artistic knowledge then you might not be the right person to become a tattoo artist. The art of tattooing is a difficult art and you should never take it lightly, if you know and feel that there isn't a strong artist in you then look for some other job; tattooing is not your piece of cake.

Now, if you are the other type of person, i.e. the one with a strong artistic skill, then primarily you will need to know about the format and ways in which tattoos are made.

Get to know about these fundamentals from any book, fellow tattoo artist or tattooing classes. Next you make a collage of the various tattoo designs that you have made, and place it as a collection for viewing by potential employers. This collage is really important so make it look professional since you will only get work if this collection pleases your potential clients.

Next, what you have to do is an apprenticeship or rather an internship in tattooing. In this position you will be working for free for some already established tattoo artist and learn fully about the art of tattooing as you commence. This internship will provide you with information and knowledge along with experience in the tattooing business and when you set out on your own then you will be much benefited by the process.


Now the biggest question in your head must be, but how do I get an apprenticeship?

It is true that an apprenticeship is not available everywhere, and even if you land up with one, there is no guarantee that they will keep you as an internee. The best thing that you could do is go to any tattoo parlor with your designs and ask them to take you in as an internee in tattooing.

However if you know any friend who does the same thing, then there is nothing better; seek your friend's help in learning the art of tattooing. You will require equipment to work, so get an inexpensive kit, and start practicing on fruits; this was the way that many big tattoo artists started out with.

When you start feeling confident that you can actually tattoo on a person, start giving your friends tattoos for free. This will help you, as you will gain both experience, as well as pleasure, your friends will also be happy with their tattoos done free of charge, and would definitely recommend others to get their tattoos done from you, thereby establishing you as an expert.
