The people’s desire to declare to others about their individuality through external attributes is not limited only to the opportunities provided by clothes, shoes, various accessories and other personal items. The history of tattooing has confirmed that people need the opportunity to reveal and demonstrate individual personality traits much deeper than they used to.

As in any other art, there are more and less talented representatives, so in the profession of a tattoo artist, there have always been those who made tattoos better than others. But, just like a service, the profession of a tattoo artist could appear only when the demand for this type of art became quite massive. Only in the 20th century, in connection with the development of technology and the expansion of communication between people, conditions were created to recognize tattoos by society as a new art form. With the growing demand for tattoos, more and more artists began to appear who wanted to try to realize themselves in this complete form of creativity. With the development of the profession, tattoo artists, with sufficient practice, developed and improved techniques to implement their ideas for creating graphic and picturesque images on the skin. The more diverse and better the work of the masters became, the more customers they had.

A tattoo artist is engaged in putting tattoos on human bodies using special equipment. These professionals are in high demand these days. The work schedule of the professional depends on the type of activity. 

The salary of a tattoo artist directly depends on the level of training, experience and promotion. Beginners may not make a profit at first, spending all the money they earn on consumables. But as you develop your style and client base, earnings will increase. A professional tattoo artist can earn very big amounts.

Who can become a tattoo artist?

There are no strict requirements for candidates. The main thing is that you must receive a certificate and reach the age of 18. There are no other restrictions.

A tattoo artist is an artist who applies tattoos on the skin. Therefore, the ability to apply is extremely important. But even if people do not have such a skill, they can try themselves in this activity, since there are a lot of different styles. In some of them, you can become more practised.
