Being given the opportunity to watch, step by step, one of my favorite artists work has helped me tremendously to adjust my techniques, understand the process of working with designs that small and create beautiful pieces for my clients. Forever grateful!
The seminar is really amazing. In my opinion she achieved show us through the videos her technique with mastery. The tips that Edit fave along the classes changed totally my way of thinking i the process of building a tattoo. And the classes are didactic, you can do the tattoo while she explains why to do it i a certain way and the effect achieved. I had on doubts about taking the course when it was available and I haven’t regretted it at any time! the investment is worth it and I recommend it.
I am delighted with the seminar. Even now that due to lack of time I have not been able to do the practices, just watching the videos whole doing another activity has already helped me a lot, and above all motivated! The good thing is that I have access to watch the videos again whenever I want and practice live. I recommend it to everyone, whatever your level is, it is always a good time to continue learning.
