Anonymous asks: Hey I've been drawing and painting for a while now I'm 17 and I know for a fact I want to become a tattoo artist do you have any advice for asking for an apprenticeship? I mainly stick to very traditional work like sailor jerry flash and the shop I would like to apprentice at is mainly traditional too, do you think they would like to see more than just traditional work?

I believe that in tattooing it is important to be good at one unique style. If you spread yourself out too thin, you will be mediocre at all areas but excel at none. Ask yourself if that is what you want. My biggest advice would be to make a lot of art and surround yourself with people who share similar goals as yourself. Goals also. Yes. Those are very important. Also be good to people. :)

dark-lady-sith asks: Do you sell prints? Im in love with all if your work and I want go collect your prints.

I don’t currently, working on getting better at painting so I have a reason to make prints.

anmamn asks: You've only been tattooing for two years? You kill it already, here's to another 50+ years.

Thanks a lot friend :)
