Lol!!!! Im actually an engineer, AND a tattoo artist. I started pursuing both at the same time and engineering is what will pay my bills. I love art,
so i work part time as a tattoo artist as well.
Being honest, the art world is hard to breakthrough, but it comes down to what makes YOU happy. "Love what you do and never work a day in your life".
I love both of my jobs. With engineering, my art backround helps a lot. With my artwork, engineering helps a lot.
If youre looking to make a career out of art, i would suggest commercial graphic design. If you combine the art and engineering though, theres tons of
high paying dream jobs out there. Such as automobile/motorcycle design.
My honest opinion is to keep doing both together, and your path will reveal itself. Dont try to force it, dont choose either. Let your work choose for
Best of luck my friend!
