    Apprenticeship Questions

    Hey guys, I'm new here and I have some questions about how to GET INTO the tattoo business. I've decided that I want to become a tattoo artist, and I've been working on my drawing for the past few months, and now I'm wondering, what is the next step? Here are some of my questions: 1) Anyone out there have any tips on how to get a decent apprenticeship? 2) More specifically, what should a portfolio include/ not include? 3) Anything I should be weary of or avoid when looking for an apprenticeship at certain shops? 4) How do I know when my art is good enough to approach a shop? I've only been drawing a few months, and while I realize I'm not the best artist in the world, I do believe I'm getting better, and have much potential for growth as an artist. Thanks in advance, Frankie D
