What is needed to become a tattoo artist?

I am a 16 year old graffiti artist from Atlanta georgia… Im the best graffiti artist in my school and I want to do that for the rest of my life so I want to be a tattoo artist. I just wanted to know the basics, education needed, average pay, and other things you think I should know about being a tattoo artist.

Thank you so much!!!

Answer #1

You need to start putting together a portfolio of all of your best graffiti in great photos to show to local tattoo shops. If they like your portfolio and think you have what it takes they will hire you as an apprentice for a few years where they will teach you the tricks of the trade. After you completely your apprenticeship you become a full fledged tattoo artist. However, I doubt anyplace would take you until your 18.
