    Hey everyone and welcome to my instagram journey to 100k!

    Okay so at the end of June I started an instagram account in the tattoo niche.

    After the 1k mark I decided to change to tattooed babes (speaking to others on instagram and reading on here)

    I wanted to make a journey once i got the hang of it and understood it all so here I am at 12.8k followers.

    I've set my fairly large yet achievable goal of 100k followers.

    I've done everything manually and legit, it will stay that way

    I post 2-3 pictures and follow/unfollow around 500 a day

    My plans are to grow big enough to sell shoutouts and sell clothing/other related items.. If that all goes to plan I'll make another 4 accounts in the same niche and shout myself out and grow them all and scale everything up.

    I'll update regularly and answer any questions anyone may have

    Any advice/tips would be appreciated.
    Thanks for reading :)

    Thanks! one problem I had at the very beginning was getting on and starting, I was too fixated on forums and researching the best niches and ways of doing it that before I realised, I was a month or 2 behind. Take action and go with the flow.. Its a rewarding feeling when you watch your following grow and to reach 10k was a great feeling!

    How did you get started? Did you just post and use a bunch of tags, or follow/unfollow a bunch of people that were using similar tags?

    I'd be sure to post 3 high quality pictures per day with around 20 tags in every caption.
    I researched every tag and used the most popular.. Searched "tattoo" and "ink" then picked the top 20.

    And I followed and unfollowed the followers of my larger competitors. It was a slow start but now I'm averaging 400 new followers a day :)
