What People are Saying

“I say these suggestions every single year and hope there have been changes made. The man talking is seriously boring, doesn't need to be this mind-numbing. The apron the tattooist is wearing is against everything your course is about, its covered in ink and god knows what else and isnt single use. many more suggestions but cant be bothered, if you cant change these two things.”

- Colette, Tattooist from colwyn bay

“What a great and informative site for training tattoo artists and PMU artists to keep to industry standards”
