BE SURE TO DO YOUR HOMEWORK HERE.
Tattoo schools are often not an appreciated method of tattoo technique learning. Most shops hiring prefer someone who has completed a traditional apprenticeship.
Nonetheless, here are some things to consider before you commit to a tattoo school's tuition:
Does the School Have Education Dept. Approval?
Does Training Include BBP Certification?
Will You Receive Your Tattoo Licensure Upon Completion In That State?
What is Included with Tuition?
What Does the Instructors Work Look Like?
Will You Be Practicing on Live Models?
Is Job Placement an Option?
