If you're good at drawing sketches and you hypothetically wanted to get into being a professional tattoo artist, what new skills would you need to learn, what would you need to include in your portfolio, and how would you go about getting an apprenticeship?

Thanks in advance.

Im not into tattooing but know a girl who is. Your portfolio should consist of atleast, 1 animal, 1 face, 1 female, 2 textual works, 1 repetitive pattern (think Tribal tattoo) 2 completely original works of your own and then pad the rest till you get to 10 all up.

In regards to getting an apprenticeship, being a tattoo artist is kind of the "in" thing at the moment, go to your local store, take your portfolio and ask them if you'd be able to start and apprenticeship at their store.

Good luck!
