Tattoo Artists

Education and Training Requirements

High School

In high school, take as many art courses as possible, including drawing, graphic design, painting, and computer art. Join your school’s art club and learn as much as you can about art and design. Many tattoo artists have their own businesses (or work at shops where they have business-related duties). As a result, it’s a good idea to take business management, accounting, mathematics, marketing, sales, and computer science courses. Psychology classes will help you to better understand customers, and English, speech, and foreign language will help you to become a more effective communicator.
