Tattoo Apprenticeships

Body Art & Soul Tattoo Apprenticeships

Tattoo apprenticeships at Body Art & Soul Tattoos are based on the traditional model 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.
