The Pursuit of Happiness

What do I mean to this world? What am I supposed to do with my life? Heck, what am I supposed to do when I wake up next morning? Am I supposed to be useful? How can I make more money? How do I become happier?

We don’t pretend to have all the answers… We only know that most of us were once tormented by these same questions, and some of us are still in torment. In fact, I guess you can say we are all in different stages of finding answers, and we have good days and bad days like everyone else.

But, what we believe is that—All of us, in order to feel truly happy and fulfilled, need to contribute something meaningful to the world; and our contributions are the tattoos we create.

This is our Pursuit of Happiness.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN A TATTOO APPRENTICE…

We’re looking to apprentice people who are looking to fulfill their lives by creating something beautiful. We’re looking for people who’ve tried different things and failed, and who aren’t afraid to try again. We’re looking for people who are open to new ideas, constructive criticisms and different ways of learning to tattoo. We’re looking for people who feel that working with a group of tattoo artists can be the inspiration they are looking for. We’re looking for people who think that respecting themselves means doing their best work. We’re looking for people looking for a second chance to find themselves through tattoo apprenticeship. We’re looking for people who are looking for a career, and not just a job in a tattoo shop. Most of all, we’re looking for people who have more questions than answers.
