A.R.T. Tattoo Artist Certification Program

The Academy of Responsible Tattooing (A.R.T.) Tattoo Artist Certification Program transforms aspiring tattoo artists into Professional Tattoo Artists, trained to the highest industry standards to ensure their success as Tattoo Artists anywhere in the world. The Tattoo Artist Certification Program is a patent-pending training program that models a traditional tattoo apprenticeship, with an increased focus on ongoing professional development, practice assessments and real work experience before an aspiring artist can become A.R.T. Certified.

A.R.T.’s Tattoo Artist Certification Program is the first universal tattoo artist certification offered nationwide with standardized testing, standardized skills tests, local licensing requirements and true in-studio professional work experience required for certification.

Prior to A.R.T.’s Tattoo Artist Certification, the tattoo industry has suffered from the absence of a standardized certification process that guarantees universal, professional standards for new tattoo artists.

The tattoo industry worldwide can now be assured that any A.R.T. Certified Tattoo Artist abides by the highest standards of professionalism, customer service and has been trained to a skill level worthy of immediate employment.

Certification by A.R.T. involves a rigorous process of training, testing and peer evaluation that is designed and administered by Professional Tattoo Artists.

The career path to A.R.T. Certification is a 3-step process:

STEP 1

Attend a Workshop

If you find that A.R.T. is not for you,
we offer a money back guarantee.

STEP 2

Attend the Tattoo Career Program,
full-time or part-time.

STEP 3

Guaranteed Job Placement

Testimonials

"My job got to a point, I couldn't do it anymore. I quit my job to become a professional Tattoo Artist. A.R.T. was my only chance to try an apprenticeship out. Such an amazing experience, since day one."

"A.R.T. changed my life entirely and helped me out. Without A.R.T. I don't know where I'll be. I moved away from my home town just to make my dream happen. Follow your dreams, don't be lazy."

"I tried looking for a traditional apprenticeship, and A.R.T. showed up. What better motivation than A.R.T.. Doing what you love to do and not feel miserable. Follow your dreams and be free."
