DO NOT LISTEN TO "TRUTH" That evil crow hates anything to do with tattoos or PROFESSIONALS who tattoo people!!! Honestly, calling people our victims....well my victims must have Stockholm Syndrome, because they LOVE me!!! XD
I was personally covered in tats before I began my apprenticeship. However, I have a very good friend who has just begun her apprenticeship and is not marked by ink at all!! I have to say, she is the only one I have met who is not tattooed, but frankly, I don't think it matters. If the artist takes pride in their profession and wants to achieve the best in his / her career as any kind of artist, then it doesn't mean jack if they're tattooed or not....It's kind of like asking if a Brain Surgeon has ever had brain surgery him / herself!!!
Anyways thanks for the question :) xxx
