Tattoo Apprenticeship : Sketches I

Landing a solid tattoo apprenticeship has been a bit of a personal secret side project over the past six years or so and I am really happy to finally announce that I am currently apprenticing under Cooper at Guru Tattoo in Pacific Beach, California. A part of me must admit that this still doesn't feel real, but I have to keep reminding myself to put one foot in front of the other and just take the baby steps necessary to see this winding journey through to the end, wherever that destination happens to be... 

So please prepare yourself for some work in progress photos featuring my apprentice sketches as well as other musings that have to do with my love of tattoos and tattoo culture. I promise I'll do my best to honorably feature the things that make my heart skip a beat when I think of this underground culture that has fascinated me ever since the first day I laid eyes on a real tattoo...

Thanks for checking in and take care until next time...


  1. I am SO glad you are doing the tattoo thing! Such a different way to do you art! I can not wait to see when you start putting your art on people's bodies!!! Please post pictures of the actual tattoo's because I just may have to get some work done by you!

  2. Thanks little lady! I will be sure to post as much progress as possible...

  4. Hey there,

    I won't be able to start tattooing until the end of 2012 or the beginning of 2013, but you can e-mail me at art@katherinebrannock.com and we can talk about your ideas. Thanks!
