If you’ve ever gotten a tattoo, you already know that it takes a lot of trust and faith in your artist. Letting someone jam needles into your skin hundreds of times can be a little daunting, but they’re professionals, right? I mean, they know what they’re doing...They went to school for this, didn’t they?
There is no such thing as a degree in tattooing. You don’t enroll at your local community college to learn the ins and outs of this sub-cultural practice. But, just because someone didn’t attend an Ivy League school to learn the industry, doesn’t mean that they don’t know what they’re doing.
So how does one learn the art of tattooing, then?
