Tattoo Apprenticeships and Piercing Apprenticeships

Tattoo and piercing apprenticeships at Body Art & Soul Tattoos are based on the traditional tattoo apprenticeship and piercing apprenticeship models with an increased focus on ongoing professional development, practice assessments, and real work experience. And yet, we pride ourselves on being different from a traditional apprenticeship. We "ink different" by providing clients with the warmest, most welcoming tattoo studio they've ever experienced—and our apprenticeships are just as warm and inclusive. We strive to ensure that our clients love their experience at Body Art & Soul Tattoos by providing high-quality custom tattoos with world-class customer service. We mentor our apprentices so they learn the skills to do just that. We provide apprenticeships with dignity to artists from all walks of life, and as a result, we have one of the most open and diverse artistic communities in the tattoo industry.

    "My job got to a point that I couldn't do it anymore. Joining Body Art & Soul Tattoos was my only chance to try a tattoo apprenticeship out. Such an amazing experience since day one."
  • Tattoo Artist, Chris Dolphin Coles
    "My tattoo apprenticeship at Body Art & Soul Tattoos saved my life. Without this I honestly don't know where I would be. I moved away from my hometown to make my dream happen."
  • "I couldn’t find myself another tattoo shop. They told me, no we don’t have time or we don’t have space for you or something negative. I found this. I came and I liked it--I saw the positive vibe that was here and I’ve been here since."
