Time to come out of the woodwork :)

I'm from Brisbane, Australia. I study Design (mostly graphic/web stuff), but would someday like to be a tattoo artist. I know I have a buttload of work ahead of me, and take every opportunity to immerse myself in anything tattoo-related.

I'm not sure what assumptions you're making about my age/experience/expectations, but I don't think they're correct. It seems like you're saying no one should attempt to enter the industry. Believe me, I don't have "rose coloured glasses", or believe in this "glamourous" image that seems to be portrayed at times. I think it is a legitimate line of work to take an interest in. Difficult? Absolutely. Stressful? Obviously. Unlikely to happen? Maybe. But I don't see how aspiring to tattoo and (very briefly, and without any detail) stating that fact is offensive.
