Traditional Tattoo Apprenticeship is an honor bestowed on a person after years of loyalty and dedication. A sacred right of passage that can not be bought and sold. It must be earned.

Tattoo school founders make a mockery of that honor by offering a "fast track", bypassing a very necessary journey into our culture. That road leads nowhere.

These would-be tattoo apprentices are being lied to and taken advantage of with the false promise of success in our trade.

No student of these schools will ever be taken seriously, or hired by any legitimate tattoo shop. Period.

Drop out or Drop dead.
