A tattoo artist

He started to draw
At a young age
Pretty pictures
Filled each page

A vase with flowers
A scenic place
And skillfully
He’d draw your face

In college classes
He would enroll
A famous painter
That was his goal

Not enough money
Could he earn
A different skill
He had to learn

A new technique
A canvass of skin
A tattoo artist
To his chagrin

On arms and legs
Fingers and toes
On men and women
Tattoos are exposed

Tattoo artists
Amazing to me
They need to draw
So accurately

A tattoo artist
In this day and age
It’s not hard to earn
A living wage
