2) Tattoo ArtistActors are memorialized by placing handprints on Hollywood Boulevard. Leave your mark on the world, one inked ankle at a time.

3) Photographer — All you need is a camera, some know-how, and an artistic eye. From there, you decide whether to focus your lens as a Wedding Photographer, or snap random pics of the countryside.
