I'm an American artist, I recently moved back to the Kansas City Metro area from the Paris region after living there for 8 years.
Growing up my school had no art program so my grandparents got me lessons with then local artist, Lee Hammond, in the KC Metro area. I first studied realism, but have tried to develop my own style since. In college I took every art course I could ranging from life drawing, ceramics, silversmithing, metal sculpture, watercolor, and more.
I am currently looking for a tattoo apprenticeship in the KC metro area. I have wanted to be a tattoo artist for over 5 years but wasn't in a financial place to be able to take that on. I now believe I am. I have portfolios and feelers out to local shops and am desperately wanting to push for this change in my career. It's hard, and discouraging for sure. But I think I have a good base an artist and could be a good asset to any shop. If you have any leads, tips, tricks, or connections to shops in the Kansas City Metro area please let me know.
5sizes2small is my studio name. I created in 1998, as a freshman in high school. It has been my presence/brand on the internet ever since then. It is also the name of my YouTube Channel.
What does your pledge do for me?
Simply put, I need your help. Every pledge helps put food on the table, keeps a roof over my head, gas in the car, and the ability to keep doing what I do for you and everyone else.
Some pledges come with physical rewards as well so it helps with postage too.
The videos I make...
I am doing monthly tattoo practice videos. It starts as streaming on my channel and then a time lapse is created by the end of the month for those who don't want to see it over several hours.
The pins I make...
I am aspiring to create pin designs that I can regularly have created and ordered. It's certainly not a lack of designs that is holding that back so much as a flow of money to keep that going. With your help it gets those designs being made faster.
