Writing up a formal letter is an excellent idea. Along with that you
might need a portfolio of your work (traditional and
modern/contemporary)and it never does damage to wear your work too.
And don't worry about being rude or informal by just marching in
there and talking to the owner and handing him/her a proposal,
because all of the other artists/piercers probably just marched in
too.

In my experience at the parlour, there is also a certain expectation
of chores too. Like mopping the floor, helping with customers etc
etc. Each store will handle things differently, but in the three
that i've worked at there was always a common expectation for
chipping in. And you can usually learn how to tattoo and pierce free
of an apprentiship fee, so it's a pretty good deal.

Good luck, fill us in when you get the job ;)
