Art is a never ending interactive and challenging relationship with oneself and one's skills. No matter what medium you reach towards, the potential for growth never ceases. This blog is here to share studies, educate and display the artwork, tattoo work and tattoo artists who make up the tattoo industry today. In this blog, every month will present a new subject of study as well as regular interviews with tattooists around the world. It is for tattooists created by tattooists. We do not offer apprenticeships and do not encourage further oversaturation of the industry. This website is for professionals only. Our community is for those who are already well established in the tattoo industry today. The purpose is to grow as artists and as a community. You decide your own level of involvement.
