'Do you already know the difference between tattooing a cat and a tiger?'

They are the same… Right? That’s what they say… This is probably one of the major deceits when it comes to tattooing Realistic Animals.

There was no quality training in the tattoo industry, that's why most tattooists merely focused on teaching technique.

Should fur be made with the Magnum on its side? Do I have to outline the whiskers? How much white ink is do we need in the fangs?

And then, sink or swim!

OK, but… how should tiger whiskers be tattooed, then?

If you're the kind of person who only finds interest in answering these technical questions; or who tends to believe that the most important thing about tattooing a leopard is knowing how to tattoo the spots right… The best would be to find comfort on any YouTube video.

Putting the cart before the horse is worthless! Well, in this case, the mane before the lion.

We are here to learn. For real.

We'll also talk about technique. A lot.

Of course, learning technique is essential but, on a regular basis, when a client asks you for a tattoo of their pet, they mean their cat and not just a random alley cat.

Or even worse! Imagine that their friends, instead of going crazy about your job and booking an appointment, they laugh at them for carrying that peculiar lion with hangover. That's when methodology and design become more relevant.

'How many animals did you tattoo make the last month?'

According to an Instagram survey in 2021, 83% of people who have realistic tattoos, want or already have an animal tattoo; either because of the special bond between them and their pets, or for what that particular animal represents. Sometimes, because it's trendy.

It's not confidential, realistic tattoo artists make many animal tattoos.

And when a client wants to have a lion tattoo, they usually take a peek at your lions on your Instagram profile first. Whether it's on human or synthetic skin… Never mind! They just need to see it first.

And this is precisely the main goal of this Master Class. Each and every episode has been created to help you and show your future clients that you are indisputably their best choice.

Take a look at my last tattoos:

'The Ultimate Guide to Realistic Animals tattooing'

Despite what you may think, all realistic animals are tattooed following the same steps.

Should we start by working on the darkest or the lightest areas? Should hair be left for last?

There’s always a right way to do it technically– although the methodology for tattooing a tiger, a rhinoceros or a zebra is different.

And so that you know how to do it, in this MasterClass I teach you how to tattoo realistic animals starting from the right design, the conversation with your client, the edition of the reference picture, and of course the steps to achieve it, either on synthetic or human skin... In order to do things correctly you must know what the correct way is.

Did you know that the best way of preparing whiskers stencils... is the simplest way?
What if your client can't provide you a good resolution picture of his pet?

From theory to practice

This program includes many hours of content in which I'll tell you about what I do before, during, and after the session of an animal tattoo.

You'll not only be able to watch an entirely process of a 3-sessions tiger portrait (raw and uncut) and a single-session white dog. Through my technique workshop, you'll learn how to tattoo any animal part separately, with exercises such as:

  • How to tattoo whiskers
  • How to tattoo an eye of a cat
  • How to tattoo animal fur (short, medium and a mane)
  • How to tattoo the mouth
  • How to tattoo the snout

Furthermore, thanks to the 10 Masters HUD, you are able to see which needle, ink, machine, and voltage I use at every moment. And you don’t have to get closer to your screen to see it in detail - we bring the image closer to you with Super-Zoom during the most technical moments of the videos.

Our Online Learning Platform enhances your tattooing skills

Some people say it’s impossible. They may be referring to courses that come with an expiry date, in which the tattooist only explains what works for them - and avoids mentioning their best tips.

Meanwhile, after 3 years of work, together with the 10 Masters team we’ve created the first - and only - specific platform that hosts an experience adapted to what we, as tattooists, need.

We are better than face-to-face seminars: ultra-close shots, tattooing at slow motion, an on-screen HUD, questions during the course, complete tattoos step by step in detail, downloadable documents… Plus there’s no expiry date, so you are able to watch it as many times as you want and reach out to me directly every time you have a doubt.

Some are saying that it's a ground-breaking innovation. However, the only thing I’m worried about is being able to teach you everything I know - and that you notice how your tattoos evolve from there on.

See you there!
