Learn From Home at an affordable rate

Everyone who seriously wants to learn tattooing, deserves a chance to do so…

Which is why I made the rate as affordable as possible. I know that an apprenticeship in a tattoo shop (which usually means paying a 5.000 to 20.000 US $ fee to your mentor) is something that most people cannot afford. Most weekly courses at tattoo schools range from 1.000 US $ 5.000 US $, which will also blow many peoples budget. Another advantage of my tutorial is, that you don´t have to give up your job in the first place or take vacation.

With my tattoo tutorial, you can learn tattooing part-time at your own pace.

My Tattoo Tutorial Saver package is available for just US $ 49 per month. You can simply cancel it at the end of each month, just writing one email.

And for a limited time, you can get access to all 113 PREMIUM video lessons (including certificate) for FREE in my 7-Day-TRIAL-Package :



Frequently asked questions


Do I have to meet certain requirements to become a tattoo artist?

  • in most countries, tattoo artist ist not an officially trained profession
  • Anyone who registers a tattooing business may practise the profession of tattoo artist. No certificate or other proof of qualification is required.
  • however, the participants of the tattoo tutorial receive a CERTIFICATE for each part of the tutorial, which documents the participation in the tutorial and its contents (downloadable after passing a small exam)

What opportunities are there in general to learn how to tattoo and become a tattoo artist?

  • full-time apprenticeship in a tattoo shop: duration 1 -3 years. Only very few tattoo shops offer this possibility at all, therefore it is very difficult to achieve an apprenticeship . Most shops charge a training fee of 5,000 to 20,000 US $, which must be paid at the beginning of the apprenticeship.
  • weekly course: Some tattoo shops or private tattoo schools offer a crash course that runs for a week or a few days. These courses cost around 1,000  to 5,000 US $.
  • Tattoo Tutorial online: you can do it at home and at any time you like. It costs § 49 per month (as long as you want to keep it) and covers everything you need to learn to become a Tattoo Artist:  Linework, color packing & shading, as well as equipment & sanitation
  • Self-educational, without any professional guidance: does not cost anything, but most people give up very quickly due to the poor learning results.

Is this really beginner friendly?

  • Yes it is. You do not need to have any experience to start with the tutorial, because it will build your skills from scratch
  • however, many of my students were advanced beginners when they started my tutorial, and found it very helpful nonetheless

What are the requirements to participate in the online tutorial?

  • To watch the tutorial videos you need internet access and a computer, tablet or smartphone
  • you will need tattoo equipment for practicing, which I will describe in detail in the tutorial
  • There are no age restrictions
  • You should be able to practice at least on hour per day

What is the structure of the tutorial like?

  • the access to the tutorial is not limited in time. You can watch all videos as often and as long as you like, as long as your subscription is valid
  • The course has  three major parts.
    • Part I: Lining
    • Part II: Shading & Color packing
    • Part III: Equipment and Sanitation
  • In total, the Tutorial contains 114 lessons with over 600 minutes of video material. While tattooing I filmed myself with the head camera and commented and explained everything I do… so you really won't miss any tips and tricks
  • If you have no subsciption, you can only open those lessons marked with (TEST ACCESS)
  • After subcribing, you log into the same member area, but can then  access all PREMIUM lessons.

How much do you charge for the tattoo tutorial?

  • You get access to all 113 PREMIUM video lesson for $ 49 per month. When you are done learning, you can just cancel your subscription. (possible every month, no strings attached)

What My Students Say

Hi Dr K,

Thanks for encouraging and giving motivation.
I ve just finish the tutorial theory parts and from tomorrow my equipment is coming and i m super ready and comfident to start practicing.
I d like to give u my small feedback cause i found your tutorial very understandable,irrelevant friendly and easy going(with out saying its easy)but at least something that in my mind for many years now(i m 39 and i ve been inked since i was 15 with more than 50 art pieces on me)finally i ve managed to gain the basic knowledge that i couldnt find from other ways and make it more approachable to me.
I ve never had the passion or ability or interest in drawing/ sketching but always admiring and wanted to learn.
All these days practicing on paper and following your steps i surprisignly saw thati can improve my skills without having the talent or the backround…Once again thanks for your super help.
