Hello! My name is Hailey and I am trying to become a tattoo artist in Oregon. Oregon requires aspiring tattoo artists to go to specialized schools to become licensed, rather than through traditional apprenticeships. However, for some unfathomable reason, the state does not accredit the schools they require, so students cannot receive traditional financial aid for them. Tattoo school is expensive. About $12,000 expensive. I am currently on the wait-list for my chosen school, which is about a year out, which gives me that much time to save up. To raise this money, in addition to switching from part-time to full-time at my retail job, I am also doing sketch commissions here on ko-fi! I am only opening five slots at a time, since I AM moving to full-time at my job and don't want to overwhelm myself, but these slots will continually reopen as I finish my current batches. Any donations will go towards this goal, as well. Thanks so much for checking out my page! :)
