Teen+ Career

Tattooing is an age-old form of body modification that involves permanently embedding ink in skin to create designs or images. Tattoo artists are professionals who design and apply tattoos to all areas of customers' bodies with specialized needles. When dealing with customers, tact and patience may be required. Long periods of sitting are often a part of the job, as some designs take a considerable amount of time to create. Aspiring tattoo artists should possess great artistic ability and creativity.

Tattoo Artist Career

Despite once being considered as a social taboo, tattoo culture has gradually filtered into the mainstream in the last few years, with a dramatic increase in the number of people getting inked. Inevitably, as the demand has risen, so too has the supply, with high-street tattoo parlors and independent practitioners setting up a business at a rapid rate. So, if you’ve got a creative flair, a heap of artistic ability and a natural affinity towards people, it's time to tap into this career.

Teen Tattoo Artist Career

So, you want to be a tattoo artist? Since you're young, you won't be able to get the full range of the career BUT you are able to snag an apprenticeship. To be an amazing tattoo artist in the future, you must be patient, creative, and have the natural artistic ability to succeed in this career. Good luck to ya!

I hope you enjoy this career that I worked extremely hard on. If you have any questions or problems, let me know! If you just wanna extend some support, I'll appreciate that too

Since the latest update (June 4th) this career has stopped working for me. Is this likely to be updated?
Thank you for making the mod, it has always worked great in the past and it was a great idea to make it.

This career has stopped working for me as well. I have a couple who are both tattoo artists and neither will go to work, although it still shows the career info in their job panel. I get a last exception file when they are supposed to go to work. I hope this will be updated soon! I was very happy to find this mod and I am looking forward to being able to continue to use it. Thanks!

Hey there. I came here to give some feedback on the career not working as it should but I see that several people have beaten me to it. I'm having the same issue as they've described- the career is listed and is able to be selected, but when work time comes around my sim can't go to work no matter what I try, resulting in plummeting job performance. It's a huge shame because this looked like such a fun career and I made a sim specially for it.
