Learn everything to start tattooing like a PRO
Are you curious about tattooing but do not know where to start? In this course, Sally Nassar will teach you EVERYTHING about the tools, materials and techniques to get started in the art of tattooing as a professional.
You will learn to tattoo, from the assembly of the machine, work station, types of needles and hygiene, including basic techniques of lining, shading, filling and pointillism. We will incorporate human models when it comes to illustrating and working a tattoo and will dig into very detailed information.
You will meet Sally, who will tell you how she started in the fascinating world of tattooing after studying everything about this art in India back in 2017.
Sally will teach you how to assemble your first basic or professional kit to start tattooing. Thus, you will know in detail all the materials you need: what machines are there, the types of tools, needles and essential information for tattooing, as well as giving you some personal recommendations based on her experience in the field.
You will learn about the different types of skin and the anatomical considerations that you must have to adapt the design to the area of the body. Next, you will see the exact steps to create the stencil, prepare it to apply it to the skin and, of course, assemble and sterilize your table before tattooing to avoid cross contamination.
You will transfer the design to the surface to learn the techniques of lining, filling, shading and pointillism in different ways considering materials, voltage and movements to achieve the results you are looking for.
You will see how to dismantle the table correctly, following maintenance and hygiene guidelines and, finally, you will learn several recommendations to advise your client before and after getting a tattoo.

Hello there, my name is Sally Nassar and I am the owner of Inkology Tattoo Design Studio in Egypt.
Since I was young, I have always been attracted to arts in all its forms, drawing was one of my main hobbies but I never really sake neither a study nor a career in arts. I used to be a cabin crew for one of the Middle East’s most prestigious airlines and I owned & managed a few private businesses like a cosy beauty salon in one of Cairo’s busiest streets & a Budget Wedding Gowns online shop for brides in Dubai, the UAE.
My story with tattooing began around the end of 2015, I was very keen on learning this art, the idea itself was already very attractive to me as I had several pieces done on me by one of Thailand and Egypt’s finest artists in the field.
I started reading & watching You-Tube tutorials until I received my first kit ever! A beginner tattoo kit for training purposes that flew all the way from China. I started practicing on fake skin and was not still confident enough to ink real human skin, until early 2017, when I decided that I do not want to be just another tattoo artist, I wanted to start a professional & certified tattoo studio in Egypt that not only offers tattoos but also free consultation, custom designing & raising awareness about different topics related to this art, like: how to choose a design that represents your identity, what precautions should you take to have a safe tattoo, how to choose the best tattoo shop, etc.
With my husband’s unmatched encouragement & support, I flew to India, New Delhi mid-2017 to earn my accredited tattooing certificate and achieve a dream that has been hanging at the back of my head for almost 2 years. I was very lucky with my choice of the training school, Angel Tattoo Design Studio offered me everything that I needed and more, starting with the great welcome and care, I instantly felt home & among my family. Satty (the business owner & master tattoo artist/trainer) and his team helped me find a Paying Guest house – a low budget accommodation walking distance from the school – and did their best to speed up my settling in period. From day one, we started an intensive training course as I only had 3.5 weeks before my vacation from work as well as my money run out :)
Today, i have 2 studios, one in Nuweiba city and the other is in Dahab city, both on the beautiful beach of South Sinai, Egypt.
