Our goal for the tattoo courses is to provide to all of our students with a clear insight into the world of tattooing, giving them the chance to have some first-hand journey in order to begin their career within the tattoo industry.
The 20-day 1-to-1 intensive tattoo course is broken up into four weeks from Monday to Friday, starting at 10 am and finishing at 5 pm, with a one-hour lunch break.
We can guarantee you that after 4 weeks of intensive 1-to-1 tattoo courses at Cristian Art Stefan Academy, each and every student will build the skill, trust, and knowledge that they need in order to start their career in a professional tattoo studio.
We also provide guidance and support after completing the course to help you start your own studio.
The students will be required to study and take notes during the first part of the course regarding the theory side of the industry in order to pass the theory exam.
You will then study the practical side of the industry, where all the students have to pay attention and practice all the tips and tricks to develop tattooing skills in order to pass the practical exam.
The practical exam will be on the last day of your course, performed in a high-standard tattoo and piercing studio overlooked by professional tattooists.
