1. stop tattooing, you start to learn to tattoo in a tattooing apprenticeship, not before, you will just pick up bad habits

2. You havent got many drawings here but you arent near where you need to be art wise yet, stop tattooing and start learning to draw well with good proportions, learn how to render lots of objects well in various styles (in both colour and black and grey) etc. Learn to do this in a couple of mediums, say arcylic painting, graphite and charcoal, really drill your fundamentals of drawing and rendering skills (shape, value, colour, edge, proportions). A tattoo apprenticeship is where you learn to tattoo (and other things like health and safety) NOT where you learn how to draw, you already need to be decent at that

Also your line work is pretty sketchy, you need to be able to produce clean, smooth lines (on paper)

If you cant draw and render something on a piece of paper there is no way you will be able to tattoo it

Sorry if this sounds negative, there just isnt anything great about the stuff you have posted, I would say you have a 1 or 2 years of working on your art (a few hours a day every day) before you are ready to get a apprenticeship at a decent studio, you can do it but put the tattoo machine away (or even better in the bin), pick up a pencil and spend as much time as you can improving your art
