Tattoo design, equipment and sterilisation, stencils, tattoo technique and aftercare

In this course, I will cover all you need to know to be able to do your very own hand poked tattoo. Stick and poke tattoos, also known as machine free tattoos or hand poked tattoos, have been around for thousands of years but there has recently been a surge of popularity and very little information online about how to do them well. With a few pieces of professional equipment and knowledge on technique, you can seriously up your tattoo game.

This course will cover:

  • Coming up with a good design

  • Equipment overview

  • Health and Safety and how to avoid cross-contamination

  • How to apply stencils

  • Tattoo technique

    1. Tattoo basics, including depth and angle

    2. Different needles

    3. Fine line

    4. Gradients

    5. Black fill

  • Aftercare advice
