Q: Is being a "tattoo artist" a job or a lifestyle?<br>A: Being a tattoo artist is absolutely a lifestyle. You live and breathe the art around you in your world. The world is a marvelous place and what you see around you can be translated to skin. Im constantly getting ideas for new art from what I see around me. I love the tattoo culture, seeing fellow tattoo artists paintings and pieces they have done. Its an amazing thing. If more people really took the time to educate themselves about the tattoo culture they would see too how amazing it really is and how involved it is. Then, I believe, that people wouldnt have such a negative mindset for people with body art.
