Well my point is not to just bust your balls. If you have any questions, let me know. I do not tattoo but I have a lot of industry knowledge as well as a lot of others on this site. Most of us are here to help and we know a lot of people in the business

Just keep trying for the apprenticeship. Learning on your own and making a name for yourself is really hard without shop experience.

Right now I'm just trying to move to South Dakota. I'm trying to get a job and place there. Once I'm down there I'll look around at the shops and try to get an apprenticeship. So maybe if you know about some good places around Rapid City, I can check them out and talk to guys. There really isn't much around here. I can say I am just as good as the professional that did my first tattoo.

That doesn't really say a whole lot about the "professional" that did your first tattoo. 
You might not share my views on politics, religion, or several other notable topics; if you ever attain my level of knowledge, you will, though.

I don't know much about the shops in Rapid City, but I do know that there are a lot of them there. Just make sure you don't get your apprenticeship at any shop!

I know a couple of people that have went to him and they come out with some bad tattoos. I've saved a few people from going there and got them to spend more for a good tattoo. I know I'm not that good so for a pro he is pretty bad.


As for a shop, I'll do a lot of looking. When I find a good one hopefully they will take me on as an apprentice.

A foot-in-the-door is very much welcomed. That could be enough for them to get to know me which could help later on.
