We are in this for you:
One way of doing this is Tattoo University will give you all of the information we can for Free!
Our motivation is to help tattoo artists in every way possible. The idea isn’t to make a profit from the hard work of other tattoo artists. We can get our money from sales and advertisements. Tattooing isn’t cheap and learning to tattoo will cost you a small fortune. Saving you money will make the process easier. We also want to help you make money. This is done by supporting people who make tattoo equipment and have a good reputation.
If you have something to offer the tattoo community we want to put you in touch with them. We all want to prevent diseases and keep everyone healthy. All of the sites that teach tattooing safety require a shop license and some money. Why would you keep people from having information that will keep them healthy and happy?
There are people dedicated to tattooing who aren’t given the chance to learn.
I took my art portfolio to all of the tattoo shops in my area and was turned down for reasons totally unrelated to me.
They weren’t looking for an apprentice or they just wanted experienced tattoo artists. Because they only wanted experienced artists, I had to learn how to tattoo before even working in a shop.
That caused a lot of problems.
Most of my learning was from trial and error. There were road blocks along the way that slowed me down. It was a real pain, sometimes physically, sometimes mentally. But I decided I was going to do it. There was going to be no stopping me. (I don’t give up once I set my mind on something. )
There are people out there who are in the same situation I was. I want to help them with their journey. Let them learn from my mistakes and give them a place where they can find answers to their questions. If someone is willing to do the work, I want to give them the opportunity to learn.
Just making sure that you have enough information to find a good one.
Giving people the tools they need to make the right decisions. There are too many people willing to take your money and give you squat in return. There are tattoo artists willing to take advantage of other tattoo artists.
Sharing information with other tattoo artists will help everyone. People can start making decisions based on facts. We are building a tattoo community that works together to make the industry better.
Working together will prevent tattoo artists from getting ripped off and having bad things happen to them. There are many advantages to working together.
No more listening to Joe Blow’s tattoo opinion passed off as knowledge. Tattoo artists are operating on myths and bad information passed on by untrained tattoo artists. It is time to look at the facts and catch up with the times.
Stop using information that is no longer reliable. Tattoo artists today are using outdated information from a long time ago.
Much of the information we have in writing is based on processes from 50 years ago. There is better, updated information now and it is time to start using that to improve our processes.
Clients will always go to the tattoo artist with better skills.
Tattooing is booming right now, and all kinds of people are getting tattooed. It is no longer a niche on the fringes of society. Good tattoo artists are booked with appointments for months.
The only artists who are threatened by new comers are lazy tattooists. They learn just enough to do crappy tattoos. They expect the money to just walk in the door. They are threatened by someone with the drive. You do NOT want to be that kind of tattoo artist.
Continuous learning and practice will make you a good tattoo artist. You will not worry about clients coming to you. Your skills will put money in your pocket and food on the table. These are the artists that this page is created for – artists who have the drive and want to know everything they can about tattooing.
What good is the information in the hands of a few?
We want to change the whole tattoo community for the better. Lack of communication is why the tattoo industry has so many problems.
For instance, tattoo artists can’t even agree on what to call the parts on their tattoo machines.
Companies are ripping us off because nobody tells their buddy that their equipment is garbage. We need to look out for our brothers and sisters. Helping others will not hurt you or your business.
