I am part of a Boycott against TLC's "Tattoo School" show. It is an insult to our profession to promote learning our skills in 2 weeks. Disrespectful to all tattoo artists. Artists will unite to boycott show and advertisers supporting this show.


Some of the Reasons Behind the Outrage Towards TLC, Tattoo School and All Advertiser Supporting this Show are:

In 2 Weeks time to be considered a Quality amount of time to learning how to tattoo is Outrageous. That is not enough time Is be taught Proper Education about Bloodborne Pathogens and Cross Contaminations including how to tattoo.


It is a Huge Health Risk Issue which can turn into an Epidemic if not taken Seriously. Health and Safety is a huge concern for any professional tattoo artist and tattoo shop. Especially dealing with peoples health as well as the artists safety.


It's a Health Department Concern which each state has It's own Regulations and Requirements that must be followed. Which now has started tattoo artists to unite to get stricter regulations.


Teachers and schools should be held to higher standards especially concerning health. The Tattoo Learning Center's own website pictures show major Bloodborne Pathogens and Cross Contamination concerns. This is scary and needs to be changed.


Not to mention in the Tattoo Community there is a process which needs to be followed like "Paying your dues". That might not be something which everyone can understand if you are not in the industry but to those of us who are, it is about Respect for the craft, Talent, Our mentors who led the way, Passion and Respect. Paying Your Dues is earning the Right to call yourself a Tattoo Artist. It's Not an easy road but anything in life worth something Is not meant to be easy. We work hard and It's an Honor to call yourself a Tattoo Artist. Tradition's are important.


Please show your support to the Tattoo Artists and Tattoo Shops who have led the way and take this as Insult to Health Concerns.


Thank You For Your Support
