Best Trained Tattoo Artists In The World
What does it take to be a tattoo artist at Mr.Inkwells?
That is a very long answer that encompasses a whole lot. Today we are going to focus on one specific part of being a Mr. Inkwells tattoo artist that in itself is a very long answer.
What do I mean by training?
When I mention tattoo training I am speaking of 5 main things:
Self training as an artist (passion and more)
Classical Art training (art school, higher learning, etc.)
Tattoo specific training (apprenticeship, workshops, etc.)
Practicing The Art (consistently tattooing, drawing, making flash, etc.)
Experimenting (trying new things, expanding art horizons, etc.)
These 5 aspects of training when combined create a world class tattoo artist. Not 2 out of 5, or even 4 out of 5. But, all 5 are a must for a Mr. Inkwells tattoo artist.
We think of Mr. Inkwells tattoo shop as a modern day Da Vinci's workshop. Artists here are never stagnant. We are always pushing one another to be better. And, we are always helping one another breakthrough old boundaries and create greater art.
Tattooing is the canvas of the 21st century renaissance. And, at Mr. Inkwells we are leading the charge. This reimagining of what art can be is only possible with the world's most talented artists. But, talent alone is not enough. That talent needs to be honed. Trained to reach its full potential. Constantly sharpened, and constantly practiced.
Tattoo training is designed to weed out the weak. People who dabble in art need not apply. Passion for art is the fuel that makes our artists next level.
So, let's take a stroll through the process of becoming a tattoo artist from beginning to end, to ongoing. Then you will truly understand what goes into every tattoo at Mr. Inkwells.
Self training As An Artist
The first thing an artist does before they ever even consider tattooing as an art medium is self training. This training starts the moment they learn how to pick a stick and doodle in the sand. Every tattoo artist at Mr. Inkwells Classy Tattoos is, before anything else, a true artist. They have a passion for creating on any medium, and practice this art for hours on a daily basis. Each picture they draw or tattoo they design is a culmination of years of daily practice and self training.
Classical Art Training
Art as its name implies is an art. However, there is a bit of science to the art as well, best practices that have been passed through the ages by a process of trial and error. There are many styles of art that one may never be exposed to, that is why Classical training is important. It exposes artists to art from around the world and through the ages. Classical Art Training teaches artists proper technique, how to break bad habits, and teaches them what the masters of the past did to create amazing art. This gives the already natural artist a huge tool box to use and the ability to design amazing art in a myriad of styles.
Tattoo Specific Training (Tattoo Apprenticeship)
Once they are highly developed artists they are introduced to the art of tattooing. This tattoo apprenticeship is a hands on experience where the tattoo artist learns everything from how to set a tattoo station, to what size tattoo needle to use when outlining a tattoo. Teaching the art of tattooing can only be done by a highly experienced tattoo artist. These tattoo Masters are at their peak with years of experience and the special ability to pass the tradition of tattooing to their apprentice.
After a long apprenticeship with many tests, milestones, and free tattoos to hone their art skills using skin as medium, these artists with years of experience are now ready to start creating art the lasts a lifetime for clients.
