- The directors of Tattoos.com feel that professional associations run by experienced artists are a good resource for those wanting to start a tattoo career. Tattoo schools that promise cash for turn key non traditional apprenticeships are scams run by people that do not respect the traditional tattoo art form. Also see, Asking for a tattoo apprenticeship.
- We only link to real pro studios. The links here are open to submission. They are free. We will look at each link submission. If we do not approve it, You may ask why. It may be you are selling apprenticeships or supplies and your art is not the focus it should be as a professional studio or artist. If we feel this is the case we will kindly say no and that you may apply again later if you have rectified these problems. If you become angry or spiteful we will just not consider working with you in the future. We only want to link to what we feel are professional studios and artists. We know everyone starts somewhere, so if it’s a no, you know how to get to Carnegie Hall. Practice, practice, practice.

Websites that we feel can be good as reference for people getting tattooed or for artists to use for ideas.
