Tattoo Artist

I am a licensed, self-taught tattoo artist who has tattooed professionally for more than seven years. Here, I share my expertise in a series of articles about what it takes and how to go about becoming a tattoo artist.

The reason I share this information is to help those serious artists out there who haven’t had luck getting into a tattoo parlor. Well, here is a great start. Below, I introduce you to all the tools and gear you will need to start out. I will also answer a lot of the frustrating questions many new tattooists have.

In this lesson, we will discuss what type of equipment you should have and I’ll try to explain some of the photographs I have provided. This is the first tattoo lesson, so if this your first time learning about tattooing, pay attention, because it is important to know how your equipment operates.
