Default Apprentice page?

Hey I know they used to do an apprentice page in Skin Deep, millions of years ago, but I was wondering if anyone knew why they scrapped it? It makes sense that the magazine should feature quality tattoos only, but I think it could be cool to see what apprentices in the UK are getting up to. I don't mean publishing loads of pages of shit stuff, cos that would be annoying to most of you peeps, but it'd be interesting to see what the newbies are getting up to..no? I wouldn't mind sending some stuff in, even for comedy effect for you guys!!! What do you lot think?

By all means, please send me some pics. If any other apprentice's wish to do the same then when I have enough, I'll put them in the magazine.
Good idea.

Agree would be interesting to see future tatooists work, and also see an improvment in what they are turning out....

I would definately like to see that brought back. Get sending you're pics in apprentices!

Just out of curiosity, how long should someone have been tattooing to lose the apprentice tag? I am only asking coz my artist has been tattooing for 2 years now and I don't know if she'd still count as an apprentice? (sorry if this is a dumb question )

not a stupid question at all. I don't think there is a set time, when your mentor thinks you're ready and the apprentice has sufficient confidence and competence. I know Arty took longer than she would have liked due to ill health and working part time.Everyone learns at a different pace.

I'd like to see an apprentices' page too, because it's always nice to keep tabs on who's new and good.
