Frequently Asked Questions

Do tattoo artists make more money working in a tattoo shop or opening their own?

Just as with any industry, there is a large risk associated with going into business for oneself. Any tattoo artist considering opening their own shop should ensure they have business management and marketing skills to enable their shop to succeed. While becoming a tattoo shop owner can be lucrative, artists who don't have the business skills to succeed may earn a higher salary working in an established shop.

What tools do tattoo artists need?

Most tattoo shops require artists to have their own supplies. That includes their own tattoo machines and necessary parts, such as needles, tubes, tips, and grips. Tattoo artists also need a large supply of ink and tattoo stencils.

Are there minimum training requirements to become a tattoo artist?

Every tattoo studio has its own requirements when it comes to training. In most cases, new artists are required to have a well-presented portfolio and spend several months working under the guidance of an experienced mentor. These teachers show how to use the tools of the trade, oversee designs, and instruct interactions with clients.
