YOUR WORK ON HUMAN BODIES IS LIVING PROOF OF YOUR SKILLS. EVERY PERSON YOU TATTOO IS A WALKING, TALKING ADVERTISEMENT WHEREEVER THEY GO FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.
In my experience, tattooing is one of the most difficult industries to get in to, and yet it is a skill that should be taught really well because it is so permanent.
It is vitally important to learn to tattoo the right way from the beginning so that you don’t mess up, spread disease, and scar people for life. I have seen many terribly administered tattoos over the years, purely because the artist did not have sufficient training.
I was not able to find anyone to teach me when I initially decided that this is what I wanted to do, and in turn I have also had many requests from other creative individuals, wanting to learn.
I have tried teaching apprentices in the past but because an apprenticeship is a two year period of working for someone without being paid in exchange for knowledge and experience, unless you are still living with your parents, you will need another job on the side to survive which has caused many brilliant artists to throw in the towel.
This inspired me to write and teach what I have learned during my career to date as a complete 7 module tattoo course, in the form of practical workshops. Each module has been carefully considered to provide relevant knowledge and teach key techniques.
If you are not yet sure that tattooing is your choice of career and whether you should invest money in purchasing equipment, then I invite you to join a workshop to try your hand at tattooing first. All equipment is supplied for the duration of the workshop only.
This is for dedicated individuals who are artists and want to become professional tattooists. A portfolio of your artwork is required.
If you would like to purchase quality tattoo equipment that will last you a good couple of years and produce good quality work, then I would recommend doing the tattoo course. If you are already tattooing and\or have your own equipment, then this will have to be reviewed first.
The course is designed so that you only need purchase the equipment and consumables as required for each module, and tattoo kits are available at an additional fee. The tuition fee includes course notes which will serve as valuable future reference to help you run a clean, legal and successful business. Each module consists of 2 days practical workshops, 3 days to practice at home and 1 day of reviewing and troubleshooting before continuing to the next module.
