Frequently Asked Questions

Do I receive a certificate?

Yes you will receive a certificate to certify that you attended the course if you do all 3 days. This is not a qualification however, A qualification is not essential to tattoo in many countries including Germany and the United Kingdom.  A license is required in the UK but at present you DO NOT need a qualification to attain a license to tattoo.

Is there any support once I have done my course?

Yes, we offer many types of ongoing support and other courses to help you continue development in a safe helpful way.

Why is your course 3 days and other courses are 2 weeks?

In our opinion we can teach you and give you all of the information you need to safely begin tattooing.  We believe other academy’s bulk out courses to give a better sense of value when in reality even 2 or 3 week courses aren’t enough in terms of experience.From reliable sources we believe other academy’s spend days teaching drawing and theory whereas we focus more on the fundamentals of tattooing importantly including health and safety.  We then give you the other information regarding skills for you to learn in your own time.For absolute clarity, integrity and honesty learning to tattoo can take months/years of practice to become experienced and to master.Wether you attend a 3 day or 3 week course you will still need to practice and gain a reasonable amount of experience to be competent. We essentially condense 3 stretched out weeks of learning into 3 intensive days and then offer ongoing support as you continue to learn in your own time.

How can you teach everything in just 3 days??

The reality is even the best tattoo artist never know everything as the nature of this art form requires continual learning.  Just like learning any new skill practice is necessary, we wanted to create a course in which people whom can’t commit to 2/3 weeks can come and learn the fundamentals and then progress training around their lives.We have also developed accelerated learning techniques which allow participants to learn faster, remember more and have some tons of fun!!With a combined 28 years of tattooing experience our lead trainers have already proven they can dramatically enhance peoples tattoo skills having trained many artists that can be seen in there own studios Monumental Ink tattoo studios!!By utilising high-impact, breakthrough processes our participants experience immediate skills for real world success.The determining factor for those that go on to truly transform their lives and become great artists is “ACTION”Our courses are professional and extraordinary however, we believe that the amount of effort and practice you put in once you have gathered this new information and training that will determine your level of success!!

How old must I be to do the course?

You must be 18 years old to attend our 3 day tattoo training intensive course however, you are only required to be 16 to attend our renowned ‘tattoo taster day’ workshop.

What do I need to bring with me?

It would be helpful to bring a notepad and penAll equipment and supplies are provided however you may want to bring money for drinks and lunch.

Must I be able to speak English to benefit from the course?

A reasonable level of English is highly recommended in order to understand the majority of the training.  All of the training is spoken and written in the English language.

Do I get to tattoo a real person?

You do get to use a tattoo machine every single day of the training program however, we do not allow tattooing live models in this training course as to do so will require much more time, paperwork, licenses and many other technical factors.We give you the knowledge and information and we teach you tattoo techniques for you to tattoo willing models in your own safe space.  More information, advice, help and support will be given to you about how to safely begin tattooing on real people in the training course.We do not advise you tattooing any person until you have fulfilled a standard and skill level to do so.Due to the fact that every person will have a different level of confidence, a different level of artistic skills and a different level of competence we can only ask that a persons integrity be the marker by which they take the decision to tattoo real skin.Many people tattoo themselves before tattooing another person as this can help realise your skill level before moving onto another person.
