Hello all, I was wondering if to become a taxidermist, is it an apprenticeship or actual schooling? I'm artistic. I have done Tatoos for others and even all of the artwork on myself is my work (except the actual inking lol). I was just wondering how it works.

you can go to school to get "well rounded" instruction on all types of taxidermy ( mamals, fish, birds ) or if you have a type you want to specialize in you can take one on one classes with the best in the business in their specialty. Go to http://www.taxidermy.net and search all the forums search old posts and use the beginners and the training sections. if you become a member there you can post and ask opinions. my husband is considering offering 2 day classes. good luck!
ps... you will need to ge your license then when you are comfortable doing work for anyone other than yourself.
