Despite the stereotype of the starving artist, you attained an Art Degree from a 4 year college or university. With your degree, you definitely developed the skills necessary to be successful in the field, but did you develop connections? There are plenty of traditional jobs you can apply for with your Art Degree; like illustrator, art teacher, art conservator, set designer, art director, fashion designer, or graphic designer. These careers aren’t the easiest to get your foot in the door if you don’t “have a connection,” and since all of them mean you could be fired at any time, there is still a ton of risk.
Have You Ever Considered A Career As A Professional Tattoo Artist?
Possibly, right? The first thing you need to know is that everyone’s tattoo journey is different, and that’s what makes it yours. You already have an edge over many people because you have an artistic background.
Whether you’re a painter, graphic designer or sculptor; you have an artistic eye. You don’t need to know how to draw everything perfectly, but an artistic eye will absolutely serve you as a tattoo artist and we bet you have the steady hands you must have for your career as a tattoo artist.
A strong portfolio is key, to showcase your art with a professional portfolio. This shows you are a serious artist. And more than likely, you already have one from school or even your passion projects and side hustles.
It Time To Find A Tattoo Apprenticeship.
Were you discouraged because you’ve heard rumors of what a “traditional tattoo apprenticeship” was like? More than likely. Instead of learning how to tattoo, apprentices have been known to perform menial acts like sweeping floors, cleaning toilets and washing windows. Sounds terrible, doesn’t it? We couldn’t agree more!
