Intermediate Tattoo (Level 2)


Intermediate Tattoo (Level 2) Overview

Level 2

Welcome to Level 2, the next phase in your tattooing journey, following your mastery of fundamental techniques. Whether you choose our extensive 26-week online program or the immersive 2-week on-campus experience, Level 2 propels you into the world of SHADING.

This stage introduces essential shading techniques, encompassing blended and diluted shades of black, experimentation with basic colors, smooth transitions in values, and proficiency in bold packing of black and color. While it promises an enjoyable learning experience, challenges may arise. Fear not; our dedicated support is here to guide you through.

Encountering difficulties? No problem. We’ll meticulously assess your equipment, technique, and artistic education to identify areas for improvement in achieving fundamental shading and color techniques.

Let’s be crystal clear about Level 2 mastery: 80% of licensed and professional tattoo artists operate at a proficient Level 2 ability. This places you on par with or above most artists in today’s shops, making you highly employable. Your portfolio will play a pivotal role, showcasing your Level 2 mastery and versatility across various tattoo styles, including American Traditional, Japanese Traditional, New School, Neo-Traditional, Trash Polka, Watercolor, and more.

As you delve into Level 2, remember that entry-level and advanced art classes are seamlessly integrated into the curriculum. Building a diverse portfolio during your early years as a tattoo artist will be crucial for income generation.
