Because tattoos are permanent, many people put plenty of trust to a tattoo artist. There are several benefits of being a tattoo artist. These artists seek to create an artwork on the bodies of their customers. They have natural talent and enjoy using it to earn. Other artists enjoy the process of perfecting their designing skills and could show their portfolio to future employers.

The artist should be present when doing the work since tattooing could not be outsourced. Tattooing is a growing industry and the Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the need for tattoo artists to grow around 12 percent from 2008 to 2018. Moreover, the industry is getting more popular each day. Aspiring artists could learn the trade from other tattoo artists via apprenticeship. There are some tattoo parlors that take on apprentices to hire after the training is finished, particularly if he or she proves to add value to the tattoo parlor by making tattoos that customers love.

The tattoo industry is made on respect and tattoo artists are expected to respect other tattoo artists and the tradition of tattooing. Those who turn out to be highly skilled at tattooing and show respect to others will start to receive respect on themselves as well.
