Are you the person, that when you spy a tattoo, you just have to get a closer look to see the finer detail?

Wear your heart on your skin in this life

Are you drawn to the technique of tattoos?

Tattoo artistry is a satisfying new trend with loads of opportunities. You will learn the history of tattooing, how it started out with a needle and stone to tattoo people, to the new modern way of rotary guns and coil guns. You will learn the different inks and how to apply the different styles and inks to suite your clients’ skin tone and needs.

You do not need to be a great artist to start, we will teach you all the skills and creativity you require.

Your future career possibilities:

  • Tattoo Artist
  • Tattoo shop assistant
  • Freelance Licensed Tattoo artist

You will learn how to free draw, to sketch and to trace. Don’t worry, this won’t be done on the students or one another – it is created on pig skin. During the course you will complete theory, health and safety as well as kilograms of practical training.

Due to the fact that 1 out of 5 people have at least one tattoo, would you not say that it is a growing profession?
