So here is something you don't hear much on this forum but after 6 years of full time tattooing I am finally putting down the machines and calling it a great expierience.I've had enough.I lost my passion.Im tired of inconsistent pay-no benifits and having to constantly take on work I hate doing.this business has drained me to death.I love the peeps I've met but its time to move on.I need more than being a prisoner to someone else.beat of luck to all.peace!

The title of this post is misleading. You have dispensed no wisdom here. This was more of a Dear John letter.

Dear Tattoo community,

Things just arent working out between us. It's not you, it's me. I feel we've just grown apart. We had a good run, was fun while it lasted, but I've met someone else. His name is Rat Race. He's not a bad boy like you, but he's stable and can provide benefits that you cant. Plus Mom and Dad approve of him. They never really did like you all that much. I hope you will be able to move on without me. Best wishes.

Love always,


Seriously though, good luck with your future endeavors when you plug back into the Matrix. I do mean that. Despite the sarcastic tone of all of this, I wish you well.

Guess that was the wisdom part of this thread.

I have a lot of respect for someone who puts it down if they've gotten sick of it. I don't necessarily understand why you'd post it on the INTERNET. and Epic you're right as usual. I still absollutely applaud your decision to leave, there's a lot of people in this business that don't have the courage to get out and they make my life harder. Just please, If you've given it up, don't ever come back. I'm sick of that too.

I understand where you are coming from, But from 6 years of tattooing how have you not built a client base and enough of a name to be doing your own Art? For the most part anyway. I've been tattooing 6-7 months and managed to begin booking ahead for the Art I like to produce. Not saying everyone should just wondering how some people aren't able to do so.
