Career Alternatives for the artistically inclined
An artistic mind should never go unused.
If you are passionate and talented about art, why settle for a career stuck in a cubicle daydreaming, twiddling your thumb and avoiding eye contact with your boss? If finding a job correlated to your imaginative skillset seems unrealistic, think again.
Artistry is an indispensable talent as well as recession-proof (in terms of business- needs). So, you may have to dive a little deeper intothe “creative” marketplace to find a job that endorses your talent as well as your wellbeing.

Custom sticker industry
The custom sticker industry is booming for products and services looking to add a unique element to their marketing puzzle as well as(more efficiently), echo their brand’smessage.
From customized stickers, wall decals, tailored banners, custom signs, multi-colored and vinyl lettering stickers—buying custom printed stickers has become an essential product for students, businesses and anyone looking to add a bold, glossy depth into their way of life.

If this seems like a career fit for your talented hands, get proactive, as this is a growing business expected to mandate more graphically savvy professionals by the day.

Tattoo artist

Why use paper as your canvas when you can use someone’s body? Tattooing is a historically practiced form of art that spans cultures, generations and religions throughout the world.
Today, working in a tattoo studio can seem lucrative and unsettling, however, a talented tattooist is always welcome as it’s a business that continues to flourish and needs more artists.
Sure, there is a certain level of narcissism that goes into engraining artwork into someone else’s flesh for the rest of their existence, however, it’s also a chance to market your own artistic vision and personal brand via a walking-talking human being.
Not to mention, the intangible benefit of making someone happy with your artistry is sure to make you love what you do, which is pretty selfless in my opinion.
