Welcome to Tattoo Education.com
We have a variety of educational and reference books and DVDs for tattooers.
Tattoo Education NewsJust Added to our On-Demand Catalog: Russ Abbott!
We are excited about the new Video On Demand part of our catalog, where we are offering cutting-edge educational material for professional tattooists through the TattooNOW secure server. As we get this into full swing we'll be adding new courses to the catalog often. Today we're announcing the addition of two courses by Russ Abbott, who has become renowned recently for his strong yet graceful ornamental tattooing, and for his work with color theory. This includes Iron Clad: Tattoos Built To Last, which we already carry in DVD format. It's worth noting here that we are sitting on the last small handful of these DVDs, and within weeks it will only be available as a Video On Demand item, so if you want the disk, now's your chance! We have also added Russ's course on color theory, The Tattooist's Palette, which takes an in-depth look at color with a special approach to working with existing pigments.
The professional-level on-demand content can only be purchased by verified professionals. If you work in an established studio and have ordered from us in the past, you are probably already on our Verified list; if not, you can click here to fill out the application. Getting verified makes it easier for you to order professionals-only products, and helps us to streamline the task of keeping this material only in the hands of professionals.
Last but not least, I've got another Organica painting listed on eBay; there are only a couple days left before this auction closes and the next one goes up. This is one of my faceted organic abstract macroscapes, and at 4x5" would make a great piece of eye candy for your home or tattoo studio... check it out before it closes!
New Ask Guy Now in the Newstands... Plus Another Organica Painting Listed at eBay!
For my monthly Ask Guy column in Tattoo Magazine, I've gotten a great variety of questions ranging from artistic to professional to healing concerns, and I've been enjoying the diversity of conversation. This month, though, I'd like to touch on something a little different. We all know that tattooing can have an ugly side- as the artistic standards rise to amazing heights across the profession, the garbage being done on skin by untrained scratchers just looks worse and worse. These folks are also all too willing to tattoo minors, which we discuss in detail in this month's edition. But I believe that even situations like this one can be resolved in a positive way with a great tattoo. It's on newsstands now, or you can see it, along with all past columns, here at TattooEducation.com.
I've also just listed another original oil painting from my book Organica on eBay. We've already moved one of them, and will be listing a number of these originals over the coming months. All of them are framed, signed and dated. Drop by the eBay store now to see the current bid, and follow me on Instagram or Facebook for updates on the latest posted pieces.
