Russian Tattoo Artist Who Tattooed His Cat

A tattoo artist (also tattooer or tattooist) is an individual who applies permanent decorative tattoos, often in an established business called a “tattoo shop,” “tattoo studio” or ‘”tattoo parlour.” Tattoo artists usually learn their craft via an apprenticeship under a trained and experienced mentor.
To become a tattoo artist a person must first have a passion for art and for drawing and also be able to draw. A strong skill set in other visual media also will help in creating art on skin. The first step is to gain an apprenticeship from a person that is already skilled in the art of tattooing.
A tattoo apprenticeship traditionally last 2 years. The first 6 months to a year traditionally the apprentice is not allowed to tattoo but is being trained in sanitation and proper safety techniques. The apprentice will be expected to clean and maintain the shop, as well as watch a continue to grow as an artist. This first year most apprentices quit and don’t ever achieve full completion. The cost of apprenticing can range from 10’s of thousands to free for labor around the shop. Although you have completed your apprenticeship, that was only the start of a long journey of education. You are always learning new techniques and skills from fellow journeyman along the way.
