ARE YOU AN APPRENTICE?

Seven pointers for young tattooers to keep in mind.

KNOW YOUR WHY

Ask yourself honestly why you wanted to be a tattooer in first place. Is it because the lifestyle, the validation, the quick buck?

MORE FOLLOWERS , BETTER ARTIST?

Nope my friend.
I feel a little clarification is due.
The number of followers IS NOT a measure of how skilled and experienced a tattooer is.

This is a misconception fruit of the modern age (you can look up what “cognitive biases” are, very interesting stuff).

iPad: is paper dead?

“Why use paper and pencils, when you have Procreate and its trillion brushes?”.
Legit question.

I’m a strong user of Procreate myself and I love how it simplified my professional life in many aspects. Amazing tool.

MAYBE NOT TODAY

We’ve all been there, that tedious task that we keep pushing to the next day. 

Training, diet, drawing, business’ stuff, organizing and booking whatever.
