Books Closed was one of the many study aspects on my list of homework from my mentor through my apprenticeship and this has really helped round my continuous growth and respect for the art form and the artists🙏🙏

Apprentice Learnin’ A Lot Here

Love this podcast! Finding it informative for my understanding of the tattoo world and of my own experiences as I make my way through an apprenticeship as “Dusty Tattoo” in Oakland, CA. Would love to hear an episode with some apprentices, actually, as there is so much discussion surrounding the ways in which newcomers are incorporated into tattooing with the voices of those newcomers less heard. Either way, easy to critique anything. Love the show!
