Almost 15% of the population has received a tattoo from the over 21,000 tattoo studios throughout the U.S. Those that work as tattoo artists have to first be trained in the art of tattoo design. In order to do so, they have to attend tattoo school and obtain a tattoo education. Then they must complete a program where they are an apprentice tattoo artist. Once they have finished their apprenticeship, they can then work as a tattoo artist.
However, even if a person finishes tattoo training school at the top of their class, that does not mean that everyone will be happy with his or her work. In fact, an estimated 10% of Canadians who have gotten tattoos have some regrets. Therefore, it is recommended that those that attend tattoo college also attend tattoo removal school.

The idea of employer-sponsored childcare is a new one in the U.S but is rapidly catching on. Employers are discovering the benefits of sponsoring or subsidizing childcare, in the form of reduced absenteeism, higher productivity and overall better employee retention rates.

There are many ?r? activities in speech therapy that can teach a child how to correctly make the sound.
There are thee oral regions used to make the ‘r’ sound: the throat, the tongue, and the lips. These regions must constrict to make the tongue sides flat and between the (more…)
Student housing apartments may be the first thing a prospective college student looks at after reading (and celebrating) their acceptance letter. Where to live while attending college classes requires a bit of consideration and foresight. While some students would prefer to be on campus and close to classes, others would much rather have more privacy and autonomy by living off-campus. Luckily, most colleges have options for both, in the form of dormitories and satellite student housing apartments. But it is necessary to examine why a student would chose one option over another.
Who lives in campus student housing? One 2012 study found that residents in dorms across the U.S. were made up of 54% women and 46% men. College life can b (more…)
Online learning is a growing business. A 2013 report showed that more than 6 million people had taken at least one class online in the past year, and about one-third of all people enrolled in college take at least one of their classes online. There are some reasons why online courses are popular, and here […]
Religion and prayer are important to Americans, even if they don’t attend church regularly. For many people, reading the Bible is a way of coming closer to God, and to finding answers to the questions they face in their lives. To help them find inspiration, stores that stock discount Christian books provide the guidance they […]
Trade schools are on the rise in America, as more and more people decide that a four-year college is no longer for them and that getting a focused education path is more desirable. Factor in that the average trade school degree costs around $33,000, while traditional school can cost around $127,000, that means a lot […]
