Business Essentials for Tattooers Live April 20
April 20th 4:00 - 5:30 @ Hell City Seminar Room -
For 20 years Gabe Ripley has been observing and participating in tattoo artists careers through TattooNOW, Off The Map Tattoo, and the Paradise Tattoo and Art events. Take a guided tour through an example artist's career, from their first inclinations as someone with an artistic interest, all the way through to becoming a master of their craft. While the artist's story is completely made up of real life examples of what works (and doesn't!). We will talk about the different forces at work (identifying which ones are in your control and which aren't), how they evolve throughout time, the foundation necessary to endure bad times and good, and common things we have found leads to success. Includes a 15 minute Q&A session.
