We are now accepting portfolio submissions for a rare opportunity to enter into an apprenticeship under Greg Solomon. Solomon’s Tattoo Parlour is looking for a creative individual who dreams of becoming a tattoo artist. Great tattoo apprenticeships are hard to find and are rarely offered publicly so don’t miss this chance of a lifetime.
APPLY NOW: Please submit the following materials by mail to Solomon’s Tattoo Parlour c/o apprenticeship 557 Ashmun Street Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan 49783
- Your resume
- A 500 word personal essay. Tell us about yourself, why you think you would make a great tattoo artist, etc.
- 15-20 samples of your drawings, paintings, sketches, and tattoo flash. No digital files please. Print them out.
Please do not apply unless you are already deeply committed to creating artwork and collecting tattoos.
If you are selected as a finalist, you will be contacted for a series of personal interviews. If you make it through the interviews and are selected for the apprenticeship, you will be required to pay a $5000 deposit up front that will cover the cost of your initial tattoo supplies once you are ready to start tattooing. Leaving the apprenticeship early will forfeit the deposit. You will be expected to be present during shop hours sometimes longer than that. A typical apprenticeship lasts for one to two years depending on your progress.
Solomon’s Tattoo Parlour is now hiring experienced, professional tattooists as well as taking on guest tattooers with the same qualities. Solomon’s Tattoo Parlour is primarily an appointment-based shop specializing in custom tattooing of all styles and we take walk-ins as well. We will be deliberate in finding the right artist. We have a very positive atmosphere and helpful staff devoted to producing the best tattoos and experience for our clients. Our tattooers are professionals that are dedicated to the shop and being the best at their craft. We require all newcomers to do a guest spot of at least a week prior to being considered for a full-time position. STP is a drama free environment and everyone’s best and respect is expected at all times. Seasoned vets who have been tattooing for years and young tattooers eager to learn are both encouraged to apply!
Only professionals who leave all their baggage, drama, and headaches at home and bring only their A game to the studio need apply. If you are a very talented, self-motivated, responsible, and a hard working tattoo artist who wants to invest time building a clientele, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include pictures of your work. Applicants considered for the position will be expected to do a guest spot or two before starting full time.
