About Us

Our Mission Makes Us Different: Ink Different

Our mission is to ensure equal opportunity in the tattoo industry, worldwide. We believe that every artist from every walk of life deserves an opportunity to make a living from their art.

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 no different. We believe in giving our clients high-quality custom tattoos and world-class customer service and teach our apprentices 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.

How are we doing this?

We inspire, educate and empower artists who embody excellence in the tattoo industry, worldwide.
