If you haven’t heard, Voluta has been courting a new apprentice. Laura Black has all of the skills, maturity, and balance to be a top-craft professional tattoo artist. She only needed a shot at it and the right training.
Laura and Conan, apprentice and mentor, took the first big step on May 12 at 5:49pm. That’s the moment she broke skin for the first time on the nicest guy in the industry, Tiler. What a brave soul!
Thank you, Tiler!
She looked like a pro. She put her hands to the equipment, positioned herself and Tiler for comfort, and set to it. No shaky hands, no overt queasiness, and no fear. Perfect.
Conan moved about, watching, guiding, but mostly leaving Laura to her own. She didn’t need much help at all. A natural.
Laura doesn’t plan to be jack-of-all-ink, like Amory and Conan. She has a style we are sure folks will come from far away to enjoy. Conan encourages her to stay close to what she loves and plans to help her translate her style, to weave it into the ideas that you bring her.
Are you ready? If you want to get in soon with the next big thing in tattoo, you should email her.
Can’t wait to see you in her chair!
