ATTENTION GUEST ARTISTS OR ARTISTS SEEKING A PERMANENT POSITION:
Strata Tattoo Lab is located in the beautiful High Desert, just west of Joshua Tree National Park, and a 20 minute drive from the world’s largest Marine Base! We are dedicated to providing a creative, supportive, and educational work environment for all artists, and accept only the most experienced and advanced tattoo artists (and attitudes!) So- please keep in mind, that we do not hire based on charity, but merit! If you are interested in relocating, this is a fantastic opportunity to work with cool and talented artists in a positive atmosphere! Strata has been in business since July, 2004. We are a custom only shop, and do not provide any kind of flash. We believe in giving integrity back to the industry and building a real future for artists for generations to come.
What we are looking for:
– A well-established (and ambitious) artist, with an extensive portfolio. (5+ years experience preferred.)
– Must be experienced in all styles of tattooing, (portraits and realism included!) Convention experience, awards and publications are a plus.

– Apprentices, home/prison tattooers.
– People with “small town” or “thug” mentalities.
– Anyone who cannot provide us with good references from other shops they have worked at.
– Lazy artists who turn down work, regularly call in sick, arrive to work late, or go home early.
– Anyone who doesn’t view tattooing as a lifestyle, and just as a job…(go work at McDonald’s!)
– Anyone who creates drama or bad mouths other shops or artists.
– Artists who cannot take/give constructive criticism, and work as a team.
What we have to offer:
– We provide a supportive, stable, and educational work environment for our artists and body piercers as well as an upscale, energetic and drama free atmosphere.
– Have a specific convention you would like to attend? Let us know and we’ll make it happen! Want to be in magazines? We’ll show you how!
