“No Masterpiece was created by a lazy artist”

Tattooing realism is not a piece of cake; you know that. Giving life to a tiger's gaze, making every wisp of hair of a beloved pet, and creating portraits that look as true-to-life as possible. Tattooing requires patience, knowledge, and a lot of effort.

It's so much hard work that many people never make it.

I can provide you with the knowledge you lack; I can show you my 6-step technique and give you new tips. You can apply it tomorrow if you want. But if you're not willing to work hard, just get out of here now

How much do you charge for your tattoos?

Clients are willing to pay for a well-made tattoo. They're looking for an excellent result. They want their child's portrait, not their neighbour's. They want a lion, not a dog in a wig.

View more

If you want to be someone's first choice, you have to be the best one and prove it. As simple as that. It does not take an expert to see whether a realistic tattoo is well-made.

Are you trying hard enough to improve?

In my beginnings, I wasn't good enough, but I improved through trial & error (a.k.a self-taught). It was not bad, but it took me 11 years, giving me many headaches.

One of the most effective ways to become a master is to learn from other masters; the earlier you start, the better. There have always been two ways:

  • If you're lucky enough, you may be their apprentice and spend hours with them, watching what they do.
  • Sometimes, you can also attend one of their face-to-face seminars and get some tips.

Thanks to the new tech, I'll introduce you to the third option. I've been working on it for the last couple of years with 10 Masters - a collection of everything I've learned so far. Raw and uncut.

No matter where you live, we'll give you unlimited access to it through best-in-class recorded videos and downloadable content. As a member, you can control what you want to watch whenever you want it. Using any device at your own pace.

So, It's up to you!

Take a look at my last tattoos:

"The ultimate program to REALISTIC TATTOOING"

Are you beginning? Join the one-hour program

If you already know the basics or have experience, you will find tips and tools to take a level up in this course. You can watch only what you need now: what you don't is saved forever, just in case.

But if you're beginning, and you're not even sure what a saturation is yet, then... you could use an in-depth plan.

This course, followed from start to finish, consists of a program that allows you to watch it for an hour a day, gradually and at your own pace, either by practising on synthetic skin or paper while you follow my steps and instructions or by studying the professional methodology. You can also dedicate weeks to follow the process of several realistic tattooing processes, and if something becomes difficult for you... you can watch it again later, as many times as you want. The ones who get the most out of this course's content are beginners.

If you dedicate that time, you will be (at least) four months in continuous learning. If you have one hour a day, then it is up to you.

Well... should we start by working on the darkest or the lightest areas? Should details be left for last?

There is always a right way to do it – and in my MasterCourse, you will learn what it is.

I'll teach you my methodology, which consists of knowing the appropriate steps to follow, which type of needle or machine you should use for each tattoo, and why and how you should touch up realistic tattoos.

View more

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 program includes many hours of content in which I'll tell you about what I do before, during, and after the tattoo session. And, of course, you'll put it into practice with 7 complete Tattoo Masterclasses.

Over more than 40 hours of tattooing, without missing a single minute, I'll teach you how I work on a celebrity portrait, a female portrait, a portrait on a hand, different animal parts, a portrait of a tiger, a white dog & a realistic eye. I'll use the videos to explain the peculiarities of each tattoo.

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 - a 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 in slow motion, an on-screen HUD, questions during the course, 7 complete tattoos in detail, downloadable documents… Plus, there's no expiry date, so you are able to watch it as many times as you want.

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.

What if you have questions?

Don't worry: ask directly to the community!

To offer you a private and personalised experience, 10 Masters includes a button under every video through which you're able to ask anything you need with the community and me. Every question you send is saved under the video – no matter if you follow the course from an iPad, Phone or PC.

See you there!

'How should tiger's whiskers be tattooed?'

Learning is Good. Doing is Better. That is why, in addition to a complete process in 3 sessions of a realistic portrait of a huge Tiger, this Mastercourse includes different exercises on synthetic skin so you can practice tattooing different parts of animals. Because to tattoo it entirely right, you have to learn it separately.

It includes different step-by-step processes where I’ll teach you the secrets to tattooing any animal part: whiskers, eyes, different sizes of fur, teeth...

View more

You’ll learn how to tattoo any animal such as tigers, dogs, cats, lions, and you can put it into practice easily following every step I'm doing, at your own pace.

We will start the course talking about realistic tattooing technique, and in the end of the module, you will assist to a Masterclass where I will show you my personal review of my best animal tattoos, including unusual animals such as chimps, crocodiles and others.

Throughout these lessons, you’ll learn:

  • How to tattoo tiger's whiskers.
  • How to tattoo a full tiger in human skin.
  • How to tattoo using my 6-step method.
  • How to tattoo lines, fillings, shadows, saturations and highlights.
  • How to tattoo any animal hair.
  • How to practice on fake skin.
  • How to create realistic teeth and tongue.
  • How to make the nose and the eye of any animal.
  • Use different round mags to create hair effect.

The Masterclass: Realistic Animals is also available separately.

Drawing process · + 4 h · 10 Downloadable exercises

Does it matter how I draw Realism?

The better you draw Realism, the better you tattoo it: there is no mystery here. Still, we have all put on a blindfold at some point and stopped drawing, believing that we would "magically" improve.

I have developed a precise methodology by which you can learn to tattoo Realism as you draw. It's basically about applying the ten guidelines of Realistic drawing to help you understand and practice the tattoo process while, at the same time, improving your level.

In this new block, I dare you to overcome the "The 10 Skulls" challenge, and to observe how your level increases drawing after drawing, day after day, regardless of your level.

Throughout this module, besides watching how I draw the 5th Skull from beginning to end, one step at a time, you will also learn:

View more
  • How to tattoo Realism step-by-step
  • How to make the most of your time to learn the Realistic tattoo methodology as you draw
  • The 10 fundamental drawing guidelines
  • The behaviour of lights and shadows in a Realistic figure
  • How to apply highlights using basic supplies
  • What pencils and blurs I use in each step
  • And the steps I take at each stage of the whole process

This module is available inside this MasterCourse for a limited time only.

'Difficult body areas requires advanced skills'

Hand tattoos are not easy. Realistic tattoos on hands are even more difficult because you have to take many things into account since realistic tattoos tend to fade on problematic skins by their nature.

As I always say, ‘if you are a beginner, don't tattoo hands or complicated areas like the neck, feet or armpits’. ‘But, when will I be ready to tattoo them?’

View more

In this step-by-step, besides teaching you how to tattoo Realism on the hand in two sessions, I will show you the materials I have used, the things you should keep in mind about the skin. I will also give you ideas to make spectacular compositions in areas like this.

You will learn how to make a composition to facilitate the application of details. Besides, you will learn the different parts of the hand: the knuckles, the sides of the hand and the wrist, among others.

Throughout these lessons, you’ll learn:

  • The most convenient photographs for these areas of the body.
  • Inks, needles, machines, and power supplies I use and why.
  • The stencil’s key elements and composition on complicated areas.
  • Which are the steps to follow to tattoo Realism on problematic skin.
  • How to create detailed areas.
  • How to achieve deep volumes and soft shadows.
  • How to place the needle and which direction you should follow to provide volume.
  • Do we need to do it in a single or double session?
  • How to shade without leaving needle marks.
  • How to tattoo the side of the hand and knuckles.
  • How to make realistic eyes in a portrait.
  • How to make the best glossy effect on the lips.
  • Big saturations and empty areas.
  • Use the freehand technique to achieve dynamism.

'What differences a tattooist from a professional tattooist?'

These lessons are designed specifically for those who are just getting started in tattooing.

Learning the technique is great. It’s always one of our first questions, and here you will find many complete lessons about it. However, in order to be a professional Realism tattooist, there are many things you have to learn beforehand.

Throughout the theoretical lessons I’ll teach you what I’ve learnt in the past 12 years of my career.

By asking the wrong questions and not taking good decisions, I’ve made many mistakes. That’s why I’ll start by talking about my experience: my work methodology, my 3 pillars thesis, tattoo techniques, needles, inks and dilutions, and so on.

My love for technology has allowed me to learn new ways to analyse reference images, edit them, and create the right stencil. I’ll teach you everything I know through many instructive lessons with the aim of making you feel more comfortable when you start a new project. All these lessons were built together with the celebrity portrait Step by Step course.

Throughout this seminar, you’ll learn:

  • How to tattoo Realism properly.
  • My 3 work methods.
  • The realistic tattoo technique.
  • Needles and their main features.
  • Tattoo machines.
  • Power supplies, hygiene kits, accessories, and more.
  • Composition of a realistic tattoo.
  • How do draw a stencil, both manually and on an iPad.
  • How to apply the stencil.
  • What to do the day before the session.
  • How to properly prepare the workspace.
  • How to analyse and edit the reference image.
