Help Me Tattoo Forum merging with Tattooing 101!

What’s up Artists,

Today we’re really excited to welcome the Help Me Tattoo Forum into the Tattooing 101 Community!

The Help Me Tattoo Forum was founded by Lucy Locket in 2012 and has grown into the premier online forum for aspiring tattoo artists to share tips and advice with over 10,000 members. Lucy had been running the site part-time purely on donations, and approached us earlier this year to see if there was a way to work together.

What bonded us as we discussed working together was we share the same values as Lucy around helping new artists succeed without the negativity. The more we talked about joining forces the more excited we became.

From Lucy:
“Help Me Tattoo Forum is totally self funded and has always relied on the generosity of our members. Even with such amazing support, it’s been a challenge as I work full-time and more recently I’ve been looking for help to not only share some of the costs, but also to help grow our community. I’ve known of Nathan and Jay for some time, so they were my first choice to talk to.

I’m really looking forward to seeing what the future holds for our Forum and community in partnership with our new friends at Tattooing 101″

As of today we’ve officially moved the forum onto our servers and you can check it out at We’re super pumped and look forward to introducing it to our community in the coming months!
