The Tattoo Academy

The Tattoo Academy offers higher education to functioning tattoo artists of all levels and abilities whom wish to expand their skill set.

The Academy houses and arranges seminars hosted by other artists specialising in a range of different tattooing styles, we aim to cover all genres of tattooing. There is something for everyone, and not just tattooists, we have also held oil painting and digital design workshops.

The seminars have proven to be a great networking tool also and many attendees keep in touch with one another to share their learning journey and form friendships.

So why not take a look below to see what’s coming up and get involved.

The Academy is sponsored by Killer Ink, FK irons and World Famous Inks.

Most tattooing seminars are held over 2 days and include practical sessions where attendees get to put into practice the principles and techniques that have been spoken about. Although there are some one day theory only seminars also.
