"I was just starting with portraits and struggled with proportions and facial features. Portraits were something I liked but were hard to do.
This course broke it into steps, and I realized it was worth it before I even started the Tattoo Modules. I felt confident, knew what to do, where t o start, and how to read my reference. Everything fell into place from there.
At first I thought I was going to get scammed but now I'm happy I signed up. 95% of this stuff I will use forever in my tattoo career. I have more confidence and my clients trust me more. And that brings me a lot more business.
If you're just starting tattooing in a professional environment and you want to do portraits or if you're not confident and struggling in areas, take this course. It's filled with technical info you can apply to a lot of different styles of work, not just portraits."

"I used to draw portraits but they always had that cartoonish, illustrative look. I had problems with the facial structure, hair, and tattooing smooth midtones.
This Course broke portraits down into step and showed me what I was missing. It was really in depth and showed me things I didn't think of before.
I saw results with my first portrait drawing and now that I'm tattooing them business has completely evolved. People ask me for portraits now and in my clients eyes because I can do a portrait they put me on that next level and trust me more.
I enjoy doing portraits more than anything now.
It helped me with more than just portraits. I learned shading techniques, drawing techniques, and getting that opaque look to my tattoos that makes them pop!
Anyone who wants to take their tattoo career to the next level would be stupid not to get this course. It's a tool to get you there."
