Tattoo Classes

Fresh Ink Tattoo IOM, with the purpose to revolutionize the tattoo business island wide, focuses on each person and tries to bring out the best in them rather than expecting them to be up to par, making our training program extremely student-friendly.

Our Tattoo Classes are intended for anybody interested in learning about tattooing. These courses will teach you all you need to know to become a skilled and successful Artist. You will not only learn how to apply ink to skin, but you will also learn about the history and culture of this art form. The course is created with a specific goal in mind: to help you take your tattoo art talents to the next level.

Course Description

The school week consists of drawing up designs that will be suitable for a tattoo, coloring techniques, difference in needles and what they are used for. Throughout these courses, the pupil will receive handouts on tattooing, the industry and all knowledge about the apparatus required. Throughout the duration of the course, students will be taught legislation/regulations of professional tattooing.


Students will also be taught how to dismantle and reassemble tattoo machines so that they get a deeper understanding of how they run and learn various parts of the machine. This will help the pupil in the future if they need to change coils, springs, armature bars, etc. All tattooing on human skin will be carried out in one of our licensed tattoo studios.
