Start in a Live Virtual Classroom
Tattoo apprenticeships at Body Art & Soul Tattoos are based on the traditional tattoo apprenticeship model updated to meet the needs of a digital age. Your apprenticeship starts online in a live virtual classroom, where you work one-on-one with your trainer in the early phases of your apprenticeship. Once you pass the requirements of the work from home virtual classroom training, you’re ready to complete your apprenticeship in one of our physical studios. Once in the studio, you’ll be trained to implement impeccable tattoos on clients, while gaining the work experience and professional development you need to launch your career as a professional tattoo artist.
We are an innovative and forward-thinking team of artists, proud of our results, which include:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I just found the most fabulous tattoo shop in Brooklyn. I have researched everything in NYC - I came upon this shop this month and felt welcome right away. The person at the front desk was very friendly and knowledgeable; no one was pushy. The atmosphere is so inclusive, artists are of different ethnicities and gender - wow! what a difference compared to what's out there...” -Irene Hoffmann from Brooklyn
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Stopped by for a Friday 13th tattoo & loved it. Really welcoming & laid back.” -Jenny C. from New Haven
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “The artists here are so wonderful and talented, I love showing this place to all of my friends because of how inclusive everyone at the shop is. I don't feel like I can trust the artists- I KNOW I can. The service is excellent, the tattoos are bomb, and the people are absolute angels. Definitely try this place at least once, whether it's your first tattoo or your 50th.” -Krystyna H. from Philadelphia
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I have had work done by two artists here and i just love how genuine and amazing everyone is here. I travel 55 minutes just to get here every time and it's always worth it!!! Kash did my memorial tattoo for my mom who recently passed away, and i love it so much…” -Nicole S. from Philadelphia
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Called on a Sunday and walked in the next day to get my tattoo done. I emailed a picture of it to one of the artists and he had it all drawn up waiting for me. He was so patient and even helped me decide where to put it. Great experience here!” -Lara B. from Philadelphia
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Everybody was so nice. The atmosphere was very chill and the shop itself was very clean and very organized. My friend and I were tattooed by Christian. He was so sweet and very talented and professional. The whole experience was 10/10. I definitely will be back. And the prices are reasonable so......they'll see me again.” -Mike R. from Brooklyn
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I struggle to put into words how pleased I am with my experience at Body Art & Soul. I went with some classmates while on a field study last week on fairly short notice, artists were very patient with us, extremely kind, and made great work! I certainly hope that there's another trip to NYC in the future for me, and if there is, I know that I will no doubt be making my way back to this parlor.” -Carly M. from Brooklyn
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Eric did a piece on my left shoulder blade looks awesome wicked and can't wait to get more excellent shop clean friendly just a fun place to be at... Awesome work.” -Akriloth D. from Brooklyn
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I got a tattoo behind my ear of a stethoscope that kind of morphs into a heart with an ekg line at the end of it. I had initially planned to get it all in black, but the artist suggested a fade of red to black on the heart, and I LOVED it. She was so quick, not heavy handed at all, and her artistry is clearly on point. The pricing was great too, and I didn't have to wait long when I went (and I was a walk in!). I would definitely recommend this shop to anyone in the area! So clean, and the service is amazing!” -Karami from Brooklyn
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Personalized service and a welcoming atmosphere. Mickey did great work on my second tattoo, and he did Zara's design beautifully. It's a great tattoo destination in Bushwick. 👍😎” -Alison F. from Brooklyn
