Where Can I Find Texas Tattoo Schools?

The International Institute of Tattoo, or IIT, is located in Bryan, close to Texas A&M University, and is the most well regarded tattoo school in Texas. In order to prepare aspiring tattoo artists to work in or manage a professional, licenced studio, the school offers an apprenticeship programme that lasts a full year.

The academic field of tattooing is not commonly offered in formal educational institutions. Most tattoo artists receive their education through apprenticeships like the one offered by IIT.

IIT students undergoing training to become tattoo artists receive in-depth instruction on operating and maintaining tattoo machines. Additionally, they learn how to create and maintain needle bars and tubes, use sterilising tools, adhere to aseptic practises, and follow all Texas Department of Health Services state standards for tattoo parlours. Students are taught good tattooing technique at the programme, as well as how to identify problems and correct errors as soon as they occur.

In every class, professional ethics are emphasised. The school also provides a basic body piercing education. Students must attend two tattoo conventions and three tattoo seminars outside of the classroom each year. In one of IIT’s Austin studios, students get real-world training.

After the programme is over, the student owns all of the equipment.
