I was recently reading a forum, and in the forum there was a thread where a tattoo artist was answering peoples question about the business. Someone asked how much is a good price range to pay for an apprenticeship, his response was:
“DONT PAY FOR AN APPRENTICESHIP! IF YOU PAY YOU ARE GETTING SCAMMED!”
Now…I dont have any friends who are tattoo artists, nor anyone whos really had experience in this…but are free apprenticeships common? Because every tattoo artist in my area that ive spoke with tells me itll cost around roughly 3,000$ to apprentice under them.
Any advice/first hand experience stories with this sort of thing would be very helpful.
