We are happy to announce for an open position in our new and cozy studio located in the very heart of Helsinki! We are looking either for an already accomplished tattoo artist with good reputation or for a very promising apprentice to join our professional, awarded and friendly team! And that’s not all – If you are interested to become a partner, full-time employee with a work contract or just rent a chair – it’s all possible with very reasonable deals.
Krunikan Leima was founded in 2015 by Ilari Musta, a tattoo artist and an entrepreuner with a long history in arts and business. The studio has a reputation of being responsible and professional, with great set of resident and guest artists visiting our studio from all over the world. Well-organized customer service and business is ran by our full-time shop manager, who makes sure our artists can concentrate on arts and tattooing. The location of the studio couldn’t be better – We are just few blocks from the Railway station and the main attractions in Helsinki.
We offer three possible deals for you. There’s an option to become a freelancer hiring a chair with very reasonable share. First you need to have your personal business with valid VAT to work in Finland / European Union (eg. toiminimi, laskutusosuuskunta). For rented chairs the studio share is between 30-40% of your sales based on your sales (higher your sales, the lower our share is). The second option is a part-time or full-time job with a proper job contract – You don’t need to run your own business or do your accounting!!! You’ll get a salary based on your sales every month. This can be arranged to EU Citizens, but also for Non-EU Citizens with really good portfolio. The permanent work permit takes time and money to get.
The third option is to become a partner in our growing business. Every year our revenue has been growing fast and this year we are reaching close to quarter million euros. Partnership in our joint-stock company (osakeyhtiö) is open to tattoo artists wanting to concentrate more on entrepreneurship or to people wanting to join the most interesting industry there is – the Tattoo Industry.
We have had a succesful history with apprentices. Three years ago Ilari took Klaudia Kujansuu as a trainee and in three years she has definitely become one of the top new artists in Finland. She has been internationally published as well as awarded in international tattoo convention. The studio has been able to provide her with work and income from day one as our apprenticeships are not pro bono. You can read about Klaudia’s apprenticeship in Finnish in our blog.
Now we are looking for a very talented person to be our next apprentice. The requirments are simple – Be damn good. Have good values. High work ethics and be a super nice person.
WHY KRUNIKAN LEIMA?
Well, there are several reasons. First, we are a group of pretty nice and professional people with good reputation – all artists are internationally awarded too! We keep the studio drama-free and we have the best customers you can imagine – We also have lots of them, meaning that even for a person coming outside of Helsinki, there will be work and clients. We are also very modern studio meaning that we have the top facilities with best possible digital tools including Wacon Cintiq, Adobe software and digital booking system and customer service management. And did I mention already our Shop manager taking care of everything for you from accounting to studio management ? We also have a reputation for being vegan-friendly, very open-minded and responsible. But Krunikan Leima is also a great place to learn as we have awesome international guests visiting us regularly.
So if you are interested of joining our crew, please fill the form below. All the applications are handled with care and only the owner, Ilari Musta, will read them and not share any of them with anyone without permission.
Thank you for your interest!
