Art is great however, I have a painting here by Kim Starr that is worth money and I cannot sell it. So many people are in Art and unless you have a grand hand, I would go more into something like, creative animation design school or 3d animation, or development of charaters for film. Great pay. A tatoo artist is not a well paying job, unless you have a shop on 5th ave in a downtown area that has many people and tourist around inking people. I say stay away from tats unless you do this as a hobby first and grown from there. Depending on how good the art is usually word of mouth will get you a customer base. Remember there is marketing, sanitation classes, equipment that is expensive. No student loans for tatoo art. I would really stick with a hobby for now. Then move forward. Do not quit the day job.
