Tattoo (Fundamental)

Tattoo (Fundamental)

Our Fundamental Tattoo course is an intensive 80-hour, or 160-hour online and hands-on tattoo course. The 4-Week version has an option to take the entire course with theory at the school, or an option of taking the theory portion online with the hands-on portion at the physical school. Theory will get you certified for your license and can be taken by itself for $1000, however we do not recommend that you try to learn how to tattoo with just theory. Tattooing is best taught with theory and practical training together.
