If you don’t have a solid education to back you up, then you can't be a truly great tattoo artist.

On Sunday, March 8, the Academy of Responsible Tattooing held an open house at its Los Angeles shop to generate interest for its tattoo apprenticeship program and to give hopeful tattoo artists an inside glimpse at the industry.

Christina Seeber, Marketing Manager, said all were welcome to attend the event, which featured talks and discussions from Guy Prandstatter, founder and co-owner, as well as Martin Dare, LA shop manager.

"Attendees got to meet the founder of the company and hear him talk about becoming a tattoo artist, about the industry -- that's not something every tattoo shop offers," said Seeber.

The main message Prandstatter and Dare hoped to send at the open house revolved around the difference a quality tattooing education can make in one's career, and how the Academy of Responsible Tattooing can provide that education.

"If you don’t have a solid education to back you up, then you can't be a truly great tattoo artist," Prandstatter explained. "There is no formal education when it comes to tattooing. A lot of tattoo shops won't even ask if you know how to tattoo -- as long as you have a license, you can tattoo."

Seeber agreed that an education is what makes the difference when it comes to becoming a tattoo artist. The Academy of Responsible Tattooing's apprenticeship program gives aspiring tattoo artists the tools they need to build successful, lasting and fulfilling careers.

"A.R.T. follows the traditional apprenticeship model by providing students a one-on-one education with a working tattoo artist, in a real tattoo shop, with an organized curriculum and guaranteed placement upon completion," Seeber says. "Our mission -- to ensure that neither time nor money should ever get in anyone's way of achieving their dreams -- has fueled us to find a way to make the art of tattooing available to anyone with a passion for this profession."

The Academy of Responsible Tattooing also boasts a unique graduate placement program for its apprentices -- every single apprentice is guaranteed a job after finishing his or her education. Seeber says this is a testament to the high level of education that the Academy of Responsible Tattooing is able to provide.

"We honor centuries of tradition by guaranteeing to hire every single graduate of our Tattoo Apprenticeship Program," Seeber says. "We are the only tattoo trade school in the country, and maybe even the world, that has successfully achieved this, while at the same time ensuring that our graduate tattoo artists can deliver beautifully-executed tattoos to our shop clientele."
