Jake applied for our academy with his art portfolio and excelled on the course. After 10 weeks Jake had gone from never holding a tattoo machine to doing some amazing tattoo’s and was awarded a place in our Lichfield studio as a junior artist. He quickly dropped that title and progressed to a fully-fledged artist doing amazing tattoo’s day in day out! Jake now works full time in Lichfield and as an average makes £1000+ a week. His portfolio, hard work, dedication and willingness to learn has made Jake one of the most successful academy graduates and has a very bright future!
