Step 1. Education and training:

Choose a medical tattoo program that gives you in depth training with hands-on experience , also one that will give you structure so you can build a strong foundation that will be applied to the entire career as a medical tattoo artist.

You don’t need any other prerequisite , prior education to take this training. 

But I recommend taking Bloodborne pathogen online training before coming to the class to have some  background information on Cross contamination. You will need to keep a copy of Bloodborne Pathogen Certificate in order to apply for a Body Art License. 

Here is a link below where you can take the course.

2. Obtain Body Art License and Location Permit:

Search your county/ state’s health department website under Body art license and requirement . You will need a physical location to be able to apply for a license. Once you receive your body art practitioner license, now you will apply for a location permit. Location permit application is also available under the Body art license requirement section.

3. Form a business entity and obtain a business license from your city, Create business forms and insurance. (business forms, insurance information provided during the class.)

4. Branding / Marketing / PR , New client acquisition

It can be overwhelming to choose the right training program for you since there are so many out there. So why would you choose to train with me? 

You want to get the best out of your investment

You want to fill the gap of what you learned previously

You want to be the best in the industry

You want to be a medical tattoo artist who care about how your clients feel

You want to make sure you will leave the class feeling equipped with knowledge and clarity.

How was the first year of my career ?

My training program is for someone who really wants to learn in depth and become the best at what they are doing, rather than quick, speedy learning ( crash course ) . There is NO POSSIBLE WAY for someone to learn everything about stretch marks and scars in 2 days.

What's going on these days is that a lot of courses are offered by people who have very little experience (less than a year or so), and they offer crash courses that teach you everything at once in such a short time. You will go home thinking that is all you need to know, then soon you will find yourself “winging it'' instead of having clarity on what you are doing.

Let’s think about our clients who will come to us trusting they will feel better about their scars and stretchmarks. We have a responsibility to do our due diligence.

When I was starting my career in medical tattoo, I was in despair after I took the first few courses, because it did not prepare me to take clients at all. I struggled to connect the dots between missing information, and I felt so lost.

I created my training program because I want my students to feel equipped and start making money when they finish taking my course.

I’m confident this is one of the most detailed oriented courses you can find that will build your foundation for further education on medical tattoo.

Those of you who will be taking online training as a beginner, please come for the one day in-person model practice in the future.

Choose a training program based on the instructor’s experience not based on the price.

  • Make sure the course will teach fundamental tattoo technique, a lot of courses that seem good on Social Media give you just superficial information , not teaching the logic and skin science behind it, which can leave you blind spots in your education process.
  • Make sure the instructor has done extensive research and years of practice to provide a safe approach with results.
  • Make sure all the information is transparent in terms of what products are used during the procedure as you will have to disclose it to your clients.
  • Make sure the course will teach you not only “How to do. What to do, “ but also WHY to do so.
  • Make sure courses will use US manufactured products for easier access to order because that can be quite an inconvenience in the future.
  • Choose an instructor based on their experience , not the price.


My training is extremely hands on. Students will do everything from the start to finish including consultation, prepping the room/ work station, entire procedure including color matching , that way students will go home with confidence to do on their own on clients and own models
