How do people become tattoo artists? There are careers that require formal education, then there are careers like tattoo artist where the path is less structured, more colourful and storied. These stories often have their protagonists watching for clues and finding mentors, and taking inspired action to create opportunities. That’s the reality for this episode’s guests, Omri Amar and Connor Yearwood. After working in 24 tattoo shops around the world, Omri Amar founded and leads Collingwood Tattoo Company in Collingwood, Ontario. Connor Yearwood is one of the tattoo artists who learned from Omri at Collingwood Tattoo parlour, and has been a contractor there and at TCB Tattoo parlour in Toronto.
