Growing as a tattoo artist often takes longer than many imagine. It takes time to evolve and get good and same thing applies to tattoo shop as well – it takes time grow clientele and cement its name in local and global tattoo scene. Also when it comes to traveling things might get confusing because work is not always thrown at you and it also takes involvement to promote your work and yourself. Obviously situations vary from shop to shop and artist to artist yet main idea is that it takes time and effort.
