From Monday to Saturday , 10:00 - 20:00 hrs.
$3,200.00MX , $3040 deferred payment during the workshop, $2880 advanced payment


The workshop will take place every Wednesday, from April 19th to May 24th, 2017, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

This is a theoretical/practical workshop, where, along the sessions, the student will egress with basic, but firm, knowledge to create a professional tattoo.

The first part of the workshop will review and question the theoretical approaches related to the tattoo evolution in order to know what the alleged origin of the ritual was, and how it influenced different cultures, including the contemporary.

We will also tackle issues related to the social and artistic aspects, as well as the implications of tattoos within the Low Brow artistic movement.

In a practical level, the student will learn the structure of the tattoo machine and its functions (parts and maintenance); the difference between pigments, inks, and nails; the adequate conditions of work and dealing with customers.

Through tattoo exercises on orange peel and pig skin we will guide the student according to his capabilities and drawing/painting style. The workshop ends with a Line Up Tattoo session on human skin and a final feedback.
