If you are a well rounded tattoo artist complaining about how much other artists prices, people not giving you creative freedom or paying you what you’re worth, But also wishing you were one of the Greats, you should get out of Tattooing and save yourself the embarrassment.
Being a Successful Tattoo Artist isn't a luxury you earn your way to because you can do all different types of styles. You’ve gotta stand out and specialize ! it's something you literally can't afford not to do right now- The problem is most tattoo artists are not passionate enough, they are well rounded jack of all trades masters of none. Whatever that means.
It likely means desperately trying to make a quick buck doing whatever comes your way because they don’t have much coming their way...
By avoiding to specialize in a style You are stealing from your clients when you do styles you’re not passionate about. You’re also crushing your dreams of ever becoming recognized as one of the Greats . It's a 1-2 punch.
