Apprentices are paid while undergoing on-the-job training in a variety of vocations. However, this is not always the case in the tattoo industry. Many tattoo artists who offer apprenticeship programmes charge a fee for their services.
Apprenticeships usually last around a year. You may be expected to perform extra tasks like booking appointments, greeting customers, and cleaning, in addition to receiving instruction and supervision from the professional tattoo artists with whom you work.
