Are you passionate about the world of tattooing?

Do you see yourself dedicated to it but don't know where to start?

Many put aside their intuition and remain trapped in the system. But there are certain people who feel the call of their passion.

If this is your case and you want to fight for it, you've come to the right place.

By tattooing you will be able to reflect on the skin the personality of those who put themselves in your hands and trust you.

But in order to achieve it, you must have a good base. A base with which to learn what a tattoo is. Study the techniques and how to face a blank skin.

If you want to dedicate yourself to your passion, this is the moment. Don't let the flame go out, later will be much more difficult to light it.

Let's set fire to that wick with this course. Learn everything you need to tattoo correctly and safely.

Materials you need to start with

Tattooing needs lots of practice. For this reason, it is important that you have the necessary equipment to be able to carry out the projects and exercises of the course.

The theory is very good, but in practice you will find your improvement.

What you will need is:

  • Tattoo machine with a grip and needles.
  • Synthetic skin and gloves.
  • Plastic caps and cups.
  • Black ink.
  • Cleaning paper.
  • Water spray.
  • Vaseline.
Adrián Sánchez
Tattoo artist and owner of Chinatown Tattoo.

I'm Adrián Sánchez, although I am known as Black Sánchez.

Together we will discover how to tattoo a realistic portrait. I started oil painting when I was 8 years old and studied art in my senior years of high school.

Then, it was followed by an Illustration Associate Degree and also a degree at the Professional Drawing School ESDIP.

All that training came in handy for me when I started tattooing at the age of 23.

I already knew the anatomy of the body and was beginning to understand the art of working with ink.

But without practice and perseverance I could not have gotten where I am today, also going through several international conventions.

What you learn the most is from your colleagues and professionals of the sector, that's why I started going to tattoo events all over the globe: New York, Milan, London or Amsterdam have been places for enriching encounters.

After going through other tattoo studios, I opened my own. In Chinatown Tattoo I have written more than 250 stories on the skin, and I am going to teach you how to do it.
