Join the Tattooing 101 Community Today and Get Free, Instant Access to Tools and Resources That Take You Behind the Curtain of All Things Tattooing. From Apprentice to Shop Owner, We've Got You Covered.
Here's What We Do...
No one mentor has all the answers. We help "fill in the gaps" of a traditional apprenticeship by teaching all of the apprentice foundations (needle/ink making, painting, machine building, etc) as well as portfolio building, sanitation, and customer psychology, so you can be prepared for a career as a professional artist.
As an established artist your next step is going to be specialization, personal branding, and making a name for yourself so you can stand out in a competitive market. We dig deeper into techniques, customer skills, investing, and making money while you sleep through productized services.
FOR SHOP OWNERS
As a shop owner your focus is to create a legacy. You've worked hard to get this far, let us help you build a world class team, shop, and a legacy that will outlive you. We go deeper into investing, team building, and marketing so you can continue to grow your legacy, and your income.

Questions & Answers
But What About…?
Are you teaching scratchers to tattoo in their kitchens?
Absolutely not, our focus is to safely and effectively get artists into a licensed shop and become a professional. Our priority is teaching sanitation, cleanliness, as well as filling the gaps in a traditional apprenticeship through our online video library, engaged community, and live mentoring calls.
Why teach artists in this space?
I've been tattooing for more than a decade, and in that time I've studied for an art degree, business degree, helped build and open several shops, and traveled the world meeting artists and business professionals alike. I've distilled this information and leveraged my professional relationships to create the industry leading information you see here. It's time for the tattoo industry to get caught up with the 21st century and information age.
What is this program about?
At the basic membership level we have an online library which teaches foundational and advanced techniques, and includes an online community where you can post your work and get feedback, as well as live calls with business and tattoo professionals. We're adding new content each and every week, and showcasing our students work as they go out and make a name for themselves in the industry.
Are we just here to learn about tattoo techniques?
No. We do have lots of new content on traditional as well as cutting edge tattoo techniques, but Tattooing 101 is about SO much more than that. I'm bringing my experience working with multi million dollar corporations to cover things such as psychology, investing, branding, and business development. We want you create incredible tattoos, but we don't want you to be lost when it comes to retirement or basic business concepts either.
I'm so overwhelmed, how do I get started?
This is the most common question we get, and why we've gone to great lengths to create frameworks that walk you through each stage in your tattoo career. Whether you're an apprentice just trying to wrap your head around foundational techniques, or a shop owner thinking about retirement, we've been there, documented the process, and are here to walk you through your own journey.
Why is this so cheap?
Several reasons. I've been a struggling apprentice, and I'm a well fed artists as well as business professional. By keeping the membership super affordable I'm able to reach many more students, and launch new material weekly. In this way I'm able to constantly update and expand the material to craft a course PERFECT for you. It won't be this way forever. Once we've covered most topics, the mastermind will convert to a closed program. Take advantage while you can, see you on the inside.
