In contrast with the “Old School” Traditional Apprenticeship, we cut the B.S., and get right down to business. With our new approach, we can usually get a new apprentice “on-line”, and tattooing selected clients for money in less than one month. That’s right, you’ll be earning money while you learn the skills, and work habits that will serve you for the rest of your life. Due to the large population of transients, and street people in this city, we have a never-ending supply of ready, and willing subjects for our Apprentices to practice on.
Our Master Tattooist, Notorious Ed, brings with him not only 40+ years of experience in the Tattoo Profession, but also 15+ years of Classical Music instruction, 5+ years as an Asst. Fencing Coach at Ft. Sam Houston, TX, and over 100 hours of Dual Instruction as a Soaring Pilot. All of the years as both a student, and an instructor give him a unique outlook on private, “one-on-one” instruction, as well as the type of discipline, and dedication it takes to master a given skill.
Quite simply, we teach you the skills of the professional tattooist the same way that you would learn to play a musical instrument, fly an airplane, drive a car, ride a motorcycle, or study martial arts. Talent always helps, but anybody with the desire to learn can learn to do it. Dedication to a purpose, attention to detail, and repetition are the keys that open that door.
