You ever wanted to make a tattoo without a machine. Completly by hand. The traditional and ritualistic way. This will be the perfect start.
This is not a course from a untattooed 'artist' with almost no experience. Befor i retired from tattooing (to become a filmmaker) i was a worldwide known tattoo artist. I invented my own style of tattooing, made a few world record tattoo pieces, build one of the most crazy and biggest 'tattoo studios' in the world and teached a handfull of students my craft and art ad made them to worldwide known tattoo aretist themself.
This course is really about handpoking and ritualistic tattooing. I also have a basic course with a tattoo machine and a 'advanced tattoo masterclass' where i speak more to tattoo artist who already understand the craft. Beside this you also find a course about traditional handpocking tattoos without machines, a tattoo machine building course and plenty of art courses how i designed my motives and art.
By the end of this course, you will have a basic understandment of how to build handtools and start tattooing.
We use just a very few items and build our own traditional tools. From a piece of wood till the final 'exam'
What makes me qualified to teach you?
My work as tattoo artist got published in hundrets of books, magazines and onnline publications around the world. I made my way into the history books of tattooing and progressed and ifluenced the modern tattoo world. Make yourself a picture and find me on google (little swastika). On our homepage (psyland25) you find also many of the magazin artikels and other information
Is this course for you?
