I started a new apprenticeship at a different shop with a different mentor. Everything was going well until my car was wrecked as I have been unable to drive there in several weeks. Hopefully I get reliable transportation SOON so that I can get back to work/learning. 2 months ago

...in the fabric. So far I have completed three tattoos on human skin & have one session left to finish my fourth (it is big). However, my mentor has been forced to quit his job due to personal issues and I will not be able to continue my apprenticeship until he secures new employment. 8 months ago
How I did it: My friend's stepfather is a tattoo artist. I am very lucky to know him as he has a very good reputation as a tattoo artist and artist in our area. I had asked him in the past about an apprenticeship, and at the time he just said he didn't have enough room in his shop. A couple of years go by and I went in his new shop with a friend who was getting tattooed. I had asked him about apprenticeships in general, and asked if he'd take a look at my art portfolio. He did and said to come in the next week with a swallow design and a person to tattoo. I was flabbergasted. haha. Anyways, he said that this would not be an "apprenticeship" so to speak, and I wouldn't be doing dirty work for him which is standard of apprenticeships in this field, and that the only way to learn to tattoo is to tattoo. A good friend of mine was willing to get tattooed and I made the design. I tattooed it, and it was nerve-racking. But I kept coming in once a week as he told me to and tattooed the same girl for 4 months or so. Soon enough I started tattooing a couple of other people. But mostly the one girl I was practicing on. Recently I got a "promotion" and I'm able to go into the shop on my mentor's days off and tattoo then.
...my first tattoo on human skin yesterday. I got the outline done and will do the shading and coloring next week. 10 months ago
I’ve wanted to do this since i was thirteen, and it’s the main plan i have. I already know two artists personally and know how to get a free apprenticeship. Thats a great thing, they can go anywhere from 5 to 10,000 dollars, just to be taught. I know i have the talent. 18 months ago
