How to make a business plan for a tattoo shop

Add New Question
  • How many years do you have to be tattooing before you are classed as a tattooist and not an apprentice?

    wikiHow Contributor

    That depends on you, your work as an apprentice, and the artist teaching you. For some, it may take as little as one year; for others, as many as five years.

  • What do I need to start a tattoo shop?

    wikiHow Contributor

    You need to have a good business plan, investors or money, a shop and all the tattoo supplies.

  • What if I'm a skilled and talented artist who, instead of working under an apprenticeship, started doing tattoos in-home, and have been doing them for around 4 years now, and do great work; will the health department still help me in getting licensed?

    If you're a tattoo artist that works at home, you're not doing great work. Go get an apprenticeship at a legit shop and don't mention doing them at home.

  • How many employees do I need to start a tattoo business?

    wikiHow Contributor

    It depends on the owner and the size of the shop/customer base. I've been to shops owned and operated by one person, and others with as many as 10 employees.
