You don’t want to waste your life burning countless hours stuck in your morning commute, mindlessly filling out paperwork, or getting yelled at by bosses. There’s so much more to life than driving people around in a ridesharing car or typing up expense reports. Instead of dreading every work day, you could start a new career and follow your passion to become a professional tattoo artist. But no matter how excited you are about following your dreams and starting your tattoo artist career, any job change that big may seem scary at first.
Thankfully, you don’t have to start your new tattoo artist career alone. Unlike art schools, traditional colleges, or trade schools, we’re ready to help you change your career into something you’ll really love. Whether you work from behind a desk, behind a steering wheel, or from home, we’re here to guide you every step of the way toward the career of your dreams. Below we’ll discuss the top 5 reasons to begin your tattoo artist career today (and how we’ll help you do it)!
While a job in the arts might make you think of itsy bitsy online stores or praying for commissions to roll in, tattooing is actually a billion dollar industry! Tattooing is a major artistic field with tremendous opportunities and an endless appetite for high quality tattoos. Go to any public place and just look around for a minute. Unless everyone is covered up from a snowstorm, you’ll probably see a number of tattoos right away. People of all ages, genders, and backgrounds are getting tattoos and the number of potential clients just keeps growing! There’s never been a better time for you to start a new tattoo artist career and to capitalize on this trend!
While some employers might laugh at your art degree (or credits from an art school) we love to work with artists who have art school training! Not only will these skills translate into the creation of your tattoo flash art, you’ll have a leg up when it comes to learning the techniques unique to tattooing! Don’t worry if you never went to art school, though! We’ll help you achieve your artistic goals regardless of your prior training.
You can pursue your goals of becoming a professional tattoo artist with absolute certainty that you’ll learn what you need to succeed! Our tattoo artist training is built around a proven curriculum that provides a clear path to achieving your objective. You can work at your own pace, knowing confidently that you’ll be a professional artist if you put in the necessary time. This is typically within 1 to 2 years for most artists. While other tattoo apprenticeships require you work for free with the possibility of eventually learning the craft, we don’t bury our artists in any busy work. We know how precious your time is, and we’ll only have you learning the skills you need to succeed as a professional tattoo artist.
When you start a new career, there’s typically a lot of uncertainty about what kind of community you’ll find. At Ink Different Tattoo School, we’ve carefully developed a team of artists and built an artistic culture that champions collaboration. And those aren’t empty words! Our mission is to ensure equal opportunity for everyone who embodies excellence in the tattoo industry, worldwide. This means that everyone, from your world-class trainers to the artists that inspire you, are supportive and like minded. Our tattoo studios are open to any artist, regardless of age, skin color, orientation, gender, or background. No matter who you are, you’ll be welcomed into this new career and community.
We’re uniquely capable of extending a guaranteed job offer to every artist who completes their training with us. So unlike art school, college, vocational schools, or other jobs, you don’t need to worry about getting hired at the end of your training. No resumes, cover letters, or interviews are necessary when you shift from being a trainee to one of our professional tattoo artists. The logic behind this is simple. Our training is so comprehensive and successful that we know our training will produce excellent tattoo artists, so we want to hire them!
While it’s typically nerve wracking to start a new career, we empower artists to make a seamless transition into the artistic field that they’ll love.
