Far more informative that anything else out there. --Jeremy From Hawaii
I wanted to start tattooing and I didn't know where to begin. This book really helped me get my feet wet and build up the confidence to know the proper questions that I needed to ask my mentor and to figure out the complex stuff that other books / videos that I have seen didn't even address. --Rachael from New York
I have seen a lot of tattoo learning or apprentice style books, this one is very direct and to the point - gets it done in a text book style. Easy to read. I run a tattoo school on the East coast - and I require all the students who complete my 6 month intro course to read this. The only way you can really learn to tattoo is from an apprenticeship - we just try to prep them for a fast track into the apprenticeship so they can focus on their artwork and this book really helps us get them on track. Must have! --Jason (Studio / School owner 8 yrs)
From the Author
I wrote this book because I really believe in helping aspiring artists become professional tattooers. I think that information sharing is really important. We put training videos on the website for artists to supplement their apprenticeship. Each book has a serial number and allows free access to TeachMeToTattoo.com, I also personally get on the forums on the companion website and try to answer as many questions as possible from book owners. We try to keep the forums positive and supportive. We want you to succeed. Best of luck to you on YOUR tattoo journey.

The book came on time and was in great condition, which is why I'm giving it 3 stars, but the information in the book is pretty useless.
My favorite thing about this book is that the author gives the reader a of list of retailers for equipment and supplies after each respective section. Like other beginner's books he stresses the importance of an apprenticeship, and informs beginning artists that quality equipment and supplies from many renowned retailers will only sell to licensed tattoo shops.
