Florida Tattoo Academy is looking for an experienced tattoo artist that has excellent written and verbal skills. This artist would be in charge of teaching classes at our Tarpon Springs location in person. Our classes are between 4 to 8 students and the classes cover everything necessary for new artists to get started tattooing. Classes are 200 hours and last 11 weeks. The classes include supervising students who perform tattoos on human skin. We need teachers for both days, night, and weekend courses. Both full-time and part-time options are available.
This opportunity is perfect for:
An Ideal candidate would have at least 10 to 15 years tattoo experience, an amazing art portfolio, and have successfully apprenticed multiple tattoo artists. We are looking for artists that are very organized and able to engage students at a high level. We have a detailed curriculum and program that has been approved by the state of Florida that we follow in our classes. An ideal candidate will have a passion for learning and deep caring for helping create successful tattoo artists.
Florida Tattoo Academy is currently the only licensed Tattoo & Piercing School by the Florida Department of Education in the entire Tampa Bay Area. Our goal is to prepare the next generation of creative professionals for a future in the art of tattooing. The tattoo industry is the only art form that is regulated and we feel that is for good reason. For instance, when you work on human skin you have to learn how to maintain a sterile work environment and not pass on blood-borne diseases or infections. A state-licensed tattoo school will teach you everything you need to know to get licensed as a tattoo artist but most importantly to teach you how to be successful in the tattoo industry.
