So You Wanna Be A Tattoo Artist?

image copy 2

By Deb Yarian My recent, internationally distributed book (ha ha),“So You Want To Be A Tattoo Artist?”- Helpful hints on getting started in an exciting career as a tattoo artist, with little or no training or skill, caused quite a furor in the tattoo world. Both seasoned and novice tattooers alike, voiced outrage and indignation at what started out as a joke between my oldest son and me and then evolved into a satirical corporate style handbook. While I understand that people are protective about what they are infatuated with, involved in and devoted to, I was still surprised and amused at the anger expressed by my critics.  Fortunately, there were far greater positive responses and most of my friends and peers, those whom I respect, got it and appreciate the humor.Read More »

By johndotcom  There are only two things you need to know about the ROC City Tattoo Expo… 1. If you are a tattooer, this show should be on your tat con list! 2.

By Jimmy Perlman Unfortunately I don’t get to most tattoo conventions anymore. I know and hear about tons of great shows all over the world. Fact is, I work in a field that has me traveling between six and nine months a year so when I’m home from work it would be a real shit move to tell my wife and kid “alright now I know I was gone for a month working but I’m gonna go to this city for the weekend and hang out with some friends, have a good time and get tattooed.”Read More »

Dawn Cooke: Lady Tattooers

dawn

Today Nick (our shop guy) asked me why there weren’t that many good women tattoo artists. He felt there should be more I suppose. I said two reasons, first most women aren’t tough enough to work ten times harder than their male peers and take tons of shit along the way. Second they aren’t taken seriously enough in the first place to even be offered the opportunity. Then if they are offered the opportunity based on their skill or looks which ever go back to reason one.Read More »
