Triple Crown Tattoo: From Apprentice to Tattoo Artist in Austin, Texas | Erik Axel Brunt

From Apprentice to Tattoo Artist

When Erik Axel Brunt began his apprenticeship at a tattoo shop, he thought he was only interested in doing body piercings. 

However, once Erik began apprenticing on a weekly basis, he found himself interested in the tattoo art surrounding him. Being around it on a daily basis, Erik began envisioning the tattoos he would eventually create.

Now, Erik works out of Triple Crown Tattoo in Austin, Texas. 

This week on Small Business War Stories, Erik takes us inside his newly-tattooed head and into the world of tattoo artistry…

Three reasons to tune in this week:

  • Learn about the apprenticeship one must do in order to become a tattoo artist.
  • Learn how Erik took his childhood love of crayons and comic books and applied it to his tattoos later on in life. 
  • Learn about how many warnings you will be given before you are greenlit for a forehead tattoo.
