Your struggle was one of the reasons we started our Tattoo School. If you ever meet the founder, ask him about it.
Ink Different Tattoo Apprenticeship Program is based on the traditional tattoo apprenticeship model updated to meet the needs of the world today. Your child's apprenticeship starts online in a live virtual classroom, where they work one-on-one with a trainer in the early phases of the apprenticeship.
Once they pass the requirements of the work-from-home virtual classroom training, they will be ready to complete their apprenticeship in one of our physical studios. Once in the studio, they'll be trained to implement impeccable tattoos on clients, while gaining the work experience and professional development they need to launch a career as a professional Tattoo Artist.
We are an innovative, diverse, and forward-thinking team of artists, proud of our results, which include:

Find a Tattoo Apprenticeship With A Guaranteed Job Offer - DONE!
There’s no replacement for experience in the tattoo industry, yet it is important that you consider what kind of experience your child will be getting.
One way or another, they need to work in a real shop with a mentor to hone their skills and their art. The experience of working in an actual shop with clients and other Tattoo Artists is irreplicable, which is why a tattoo apprenticeship is key to becoming a successful Tattoo Artist.
A Few Tattoo Apprenticeships Are Pure Gold
Some tattoo apprenticeships are wild, unstable, and only intended to use apprentices for free labor, amusement, cleaning up the shop, and doing administrative work as an alternative to having an actual employee or punching bag. Be careful. If your child is in one of these, make a change right away.
If you want a drama-free guarantee and a guaranteed job offer for your child, well then there is only one place in the country that can make these kinds of guarantees: Ink Different Tattoo School.
If your child passes their interview process and you decide to secure a tattoo apprenticeship at any of the locations owned and operated by Ink Different Tattoo School, your child will have a guaranteed job offer the day they finish their apprenticeship.
This is really the only kind of apprenticeship you are looking to find.
Once they complete their apprenticeship and are offered a seat at the studio, they can choose from any of our locations around the country. We're not saying you want them to move away, we're just saying... it's an option.
If you do not live in a city where we have the apprenticeship program, you can think of this as sending them away to college, for a fraction of the time, and a micro-fraction of the cost. In the end, they now have a trade, just like an electrician or a plumber, that they can take with them for the rest of their lives and it basically costs nothing. They easily earn back what was spent in the first year.
