If your not already in the Biz. you have a LONG road ahead of you.

lots and lots of money to spend and more brick walls to penatrate than i care to explain. i personaly have been a working artist for a few years now and am just bairly scratching the surface of what ALL it takes to own/operate a TRUELY sucsessful tattoo studio.I curently work @ a studio

est.1979 {25 years ago} and for a family that has been tattooing since 1917 so I am working for a tattoo family with alot of history to learn the PROPER-WAY to own/operate a tattoo studio.

You want to open a tattoo studio, and you don't know how???

How long have you been tattooing? Who trained you? What qualifies you as a studio owner?

In my opinion, if you don't know the first steps to opening/operating a tattoo studio, you prolly shouldn't.

If you don't tattoo, don't open the shop.
