"What’s the difference between a tattooist… and a professional tattooist?"

My name is Coreh López, I have been tattooing for 11 years and my specialty is Realistic tattoo. My obsession is to find the right middle-ground between eye-catching result and create tattoos that does not fade over time. In this seminar, I’ll teach you how I’ve achieved it, explaining all the methodology, technique and showing you how I tattoo a celebrity portrait, step-by-step in full detail. Furthermore, I’ll personally assist you through a private question system, so you can achieve, through this seminar, bettering the quality that your tattoos deserve.

At 10 Masters you will find the best experience to level up your tattoo skills. No matter where you live, we give you access to best-in-class recorded videos and downloadable content. As a member you'll control what you want to watch, when you want it, using any device. At your own pace & limitless.

How Realism must to be tattooed?

Despite what you may think, all realistic images are tattooed following the same steps. Should we start by working on the darkest or the lightest areas? Should details be left for last?

There’s always a right way to do it – and in my Online Seminar, you'll learn what it is. I’ll teach you my methodology, which basically consists in knowing what the appropriate steps to follow are, which type of needle or machine you should use for each tattoo, or why and how you should touch up realistic tattoos. I’ll also tell you about composition, photo editing before starting the tattoo process, the workspace, and more. In order to do things correctly you must know what the correct way is. Did you know that you can identify lines, shadows, and fills in an image through Photoshop? Is the machine you use the one that works best for you?

From theory to practice

This Seminar includes many hours of content through which I’ll talk about what I do before, during and after the tattoo session. And, of course, we’ll put it into practice through 2 tattoo sessions of a celebrity portrait.

Over more than 8 hours of tattooing, without losing a single minute, I’ll teach you my way of working. I’ll take this opportunity to explain the particularities of the tattoo, you’ll be able to see how it heals, the second session, and I’ll tell you about the machines, inks, needles, etc., that I’ve used. Furthermore, thanks to the 10 Masters HUD, you’ll be able to see which needle, ink, machine, and voltage I’m using at any time. If you want to see 2 more tattoos in addition, please check the new Realistic Tattoo Bundle which includes 2 more tattoos with super-zooms and extra content.

Our Online Learning 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: You’ll see ultra-close shots, slow motion images, an on-screen HUD, questions during the course, 3 complete tattoos in detail, downloadable supporting documents… Plus there’s no expiry date, so you’ll be able to watch it as many times as you want and reach out to me directly every time you have a doubt.

It might be 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.

What if you have questions?

Don’t worry: ask me directly!

To offer you a private and personalised experience, 10 Masters has included a button under every video through which you’ll be able to ask me anything you need. Every question you ask will be saved under the video right when you ask it, and I’ll answer you personally in less than 24 hours – no matter if you follow the course from an iPad, your phone, or a PC.

See you there!

  1. Fernando Diez Garrido

    In my 9 years as a tattooist I have heard a lot of people talking about tattoos, a lot of people explaining things in their own way, and giving a lot of wrong or unnecessary information. And I can assure you that every word coreh says is totally necessary and correct, well explained, very complete, without lies or empty explanations. And all is told in a very pleasant and enjoyable way that leaves you wanting to continue listening to the next lesson. Congratulations, you have done an incredible job with this course.

  2. Ariel Nieme

    Very well explained, from beginning to end. This is gold, really! I don't usually write reviews about anything, but I think this course is worth it. Whether you are a beginner or advanced tattooist, you will always learn something! and there is a lot to learn here! yes sir!

  3. Cristian García Bleda

    Impressive quality of every video and the perseverance of this great artist in helping others to grow as artists and share all his knowledge and experiences of tattoo for all the years he has been researching and learning to then be able to share it with everyone. Thank you very much for the great work that is inside this seminar!

  4. Gerard Borras Toribio

    Great masterclass of coreh. It has helped me a lot to learn things that today I didn't know, and that no one had told me (or I had not found info). Very happy and looking forward to put into practice everything I learned. 100% recommended! Thank you very much!

  5. Luis Escobedo Belmonte

    It is the only Seminar I have done to this day, I was pleasantly surprised. I was only expecting a tattoo done by Coreh, but the information he gives you, all the theory.... For a beginner like me, it is a breakthrough in my beginnings to realism. I want to thank Coreh and 10master for the good job you have done!!!

  6. Walter Martin Leiva
    Simplicity and knowledge

    Very happy to have finished the course. But even more to have received the information and teaching which has taken you many years to achieve. At the same time I would like to highlight the simplicity in which you explain the processes, techniques, applications, etc etc. The application of knowledge based on teaching and teaching. In simple and direct ways. With the right technical detail. I will repeat. Very pleased.

  7. Jesus Sastre
    Exceeds my expectations

    I have been in the world of tattooing for several years. I have attended several face-to-face seminars, and purchased two other online seminars from other tattoo artists. By far this seminar is the most useful one I have done. It is not a video of a tattoo artist, it is really a training COURSE from start to finish, super well structured and explained. The platform is awesome and makes it very easy to consult and learn. It teaches tricks or ways of working in detail, does not hide even the smallest step. It explains everything from the execution to the preparation of the tattoo. It is honestly the best training I have received in years! And not only in the tattoo world!

  8. Petar Kolev
    Must do it…

    I’m glad that I chose to do that seminar. Can’t be thankful enough for a such a good explanation and attention on the details that Mr Coreh López did . I have learned a lot from this seminar and change a lot of my ideas for realistic tattoos. Highly recommend it to do that seminar for everyone even if they are doing tattoos for a long time, I’m sure they still will learn something more from it ! Thanks again , and wish you a best of luck…🍀

  9. Chrysovalantis Kalliantzas
    Is very interesting how you work

    Is very interesting how you work ,and how you explain details,I really like that you open and respect the artist from different styles and you say many times that from all styles of tattooing you have to learn.definitely I will take more seminars from you,looking forward for the next seminars! Thank you for all tips and advice 🤝

  10. Igor Tcacenco
    Inspiring master class

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge and 10masters Team for bringing this master class to english speakers. Would love to see the old master class that was taken down from the Coreh's website. Thats the original version I really wanted to get.

  11. Ryan Gonzalez
    Best webinar so far.

    I’ve learned a lot from this and loved the way it was designed. I can’t wait to learn more about photography. You also inspired me to stop using a polarized film and focus more on healed tattoos.

  12. Kensi
    Worth it, learned a lot

    Easy and clean in everything

  13. Ben Lowther

    Well put together, allot of info to learn from. Recommended for all levels. Thanks for taking the time to put tighter.

  14. Raymond Willis
    Great seminar!

    This was a very informative seminar. The fact that this great artist said to achieve the realistic look realism isn’t done in any one particular way made me more at ease about continuing to tattoo realism. The honesty about how he personally felt about what we all have been told growing in the industry isn’t always true. I’ve learn a lot of new tips and tricks to apply with my own and it was well worth it. I’m proud to say that I have completed this seminar and received my certificate!

  15. Derek Belt
    Realism seminar

    The online seminar was awsome. Years ago in another life I was incarcerated. Were I learned to tattoo single needle with a Walkman motor. I was very successful with that equipment. But now I've had to relearn tattooing I've had alot of questions. Most if not all were answered in this class. I think this class would be good for anyone. No matter how good you think you are. When you stop learning your done that's you don't get any better. Even little tid bits of information can take on a life of there own an grow. Thank you Corey!!!!!

  16. Evaldas Pasakinskas

    Very informative and useful seminar. Will be waiting for new ones!

  17. Alex Ilchenko
    Great course!

    It wasn’t my first online course and I think this is the great one. Coreh shows everything you need to know to be realistic tattoo artist. I would recommend it for those who are interesting in realistic tattoo.

  18. Deividas Rikteris
    Love it

    Simple and easy to understand. No useless information. Got some good tips which I already tried and felt improvement of my technique. Appreciate for shearing with us your skills and advices.

  19. Mark van Beek

    I learned so much,and also got much conformation that my personal way of working is accualy realy good ,when some say it aint the normal way. I believe logica thinking is most important,definatly by skin preparation and aftercare. Thanks for a head full of New info. Tattoo Mark Ede

    Super Heros -> Coreh Lopez and 10 Masters Team

    Hi, I would like to thank you for creating this amazing seminar and that, even if it`s noticed that you put a lot of work into it, you made it accessible to us. I found valuable information that no youtube can provide. I am now, 10 steps further to becoming a tattoo artist, but nevertheless many more to go. I wish I could have accessed the course in both versions, English and Spanish, as I speak both languages and when I repeat the seminar I would have liked to see it in Spanish also. Other than that, you are a game-changer, and Coreh Lopez and the Team are my heroes.

  24. Anton Dimitrov

  27. Ole Mortensen
    A superb seminar.

    A super course that really goes in depth. I have been tattooing for 10 years, and am ready for realism, and it was here, just when I needed it, that this online course came up. I think you're doing well. It is fun to hear that the same problems recur, whether it is Denmark or Spain. I had lost some of my patience, but it has come back, also by virtue of this course, with renewed strength, and my passion for tattooing has never been stronger. Many thanks from Denmark. Ole Mortensen

  28. Rolandas Semaska
