Tips for a Tattoo Portfolio

  1. Hobby, art, and craft stores are the best places to find a wide variety of art portfolios in a range of affordable prices.
  2. DO NOT include any photos of tattoos you may have already done at home. Tattoo artists are usually not impressed with scratcher work and it will only make them feel that they are probably going to have to re-train you to eliminate any bad habits. If you want an apprenticeship, you agree to start from scratch.
