This is the best site if you are looking for a tatoo artist job
But Please tell me which country you are from and the city where you want this job ? are you ready to relocate?
So that I can give you more specific recommendations.
Hey thank you so much for the advice and tips. Much appreciated. I understand there is some risk with safety in tattooing I am figuring I probably have to seek out first aid training before a legitimate career in the tattooing business. At least that is what I have been told long ago.
I am still a novice in the arts I am 22 but have being doing art since I was young and always has been my outlet and joy.
I have done tons of art pieces on canvas and built up my own portfolio and many people who would see my work point me into the direction of a career in arts. However my mind in boggled with any ideas where to even start and I figure a tattoo artist would be the best option as I can relate a lot to the career. Enjoying art, being punked, enjoying the underground scene.
I just moved from a one horse bible belt town that no one would know of to a more bigger city in Vancouver, BC.
I am hoping to start my career path in Vancouver before deciding to relocate again further down the road.
