The Tattooers Podcast Ep 4 pt 1: Phillies finest tatttoers protect the trade w/ Eric Perfect


Eric is a tattooer of 27 years and has seen his fair share of bullshit when it comes to tattooing. And the recent uprising of  Tattoo Schools is no exception. There have always been people trying to make a buck off of tattooing especially since the rise of its popularity in todays culture. Tattoos are fashionable but that comes with some drawbacks as well as some benefits. 

In the beginning of this episode we will hear from the tattoo school man himself. Expaining that he was failing at the job he is trying to teach people….That blows my mind…

Eric Perfect with Philadelphia tattooers protesting tattoo schools

The tattoo school drawback is that now, in a few short months and thousands of dollars later, a young naive person can become a “tattoo artist”. [I use quotations and the term tattoo artist very loosely here] All at the expense of the genreal public. Its the customers and clients that we have worked so hard to give the best of oursleves and give the best possible tattoos we can. Mind you there are always crappy tattoo artists doing tattoos they shouldn’t be doing and Im probably one of them.  But to set this as the standard is not only decienving the would be  tattoo artists but the general public into thinking that these tattoos are ok. I have my own opinions of whats right and wrong about this but ill let Eric Perfect, Chad Knight and Myke Chambers explain the situation in Philly. So stay tuned for the upcoming episodes with those fellas. Til then please enjoy Eric Perfect.

  1. Seems like a bunch of white people crying for their candy to me.. art is for everyone, what if someone comes and tell you that you can’t do what you feels is for you, fuck that, work hard and do your business.

    1. I agree that art is for everyone. I also believe that some folks want things handed to them. The best thing for people, is to be told their idea is garbage. I think it helps weed out the ones that weren’t serious in the 1st place. If your feelings get hurt and you don’t end up pursuing your “passion” then I guess it wasn’t meant to be. If it drives you to prove to the world that you really want “it” then thats great. The other problem with this is the tattoo schools arent really teaching people how to tattoo but rather, its teaching people how to teach people…kinda sucks. So yeah work hard and run your own race. Thanks for your thoughts!

  2. Awesome interview and thanks for keepin’ it REAL! I totally stand with the Legit tattooers, such as Eric Perfect. It’s incredibly important to protect your craft and talent! Why wouldn’t any legit tattoo artist feel somewhat territorial about their own path to the art of tattooing?! You know, like: true struggles, blood, sweat and tears, family time sacrificed, starting with cleaning the “John”, and watching and dedicating for the chance to be the artist in THAT chair!!
    The whole idea of Tattoo school is NOT authentic or sincere in teaching interested parties a genuine craft. You can’t teach passion, this is beyond frustrating and I for one do not blame true Tattoo artists for what they’re feeling about all this!

    1. Thanks for the support! Being a tattoo artist in a town like tucson, which is filled with tattoo shops, I care about the tattoos that are being done on people as well as who is the face of our business

    1. Absolutely. We are the real voices of the tattoo business. Not a school, but tattooers. thanks for listening and your comments! Really appreciate it. Feel freee to share it with anyone that will listen haha.
