Illustrative Techniques for Tattooers 10/27 12pm-3pm

Many techniques from other 2D media can be borrowed and simulated in tattooing, such as woodcut, etching and watercolor- we will discuss how to responsibly teach yourself new techniques and implement them in your tattoos; as well as talk about risks and likely longevity of various techniques and necessary communication with clients about experimentation.  Techniques frequently used by Esther will be discussed in detail, as well as possible variations.

Examples of hacks to reduce the number/ change the kind of decisions being made during the tattoo process, and improve speed and effectiveness during tattooing. 

A class-relevant goody bag will be provided for each attendee.

Esther Garcia is a Chicago-based tattooer, and owner of Butterfat Studios. Her tattoo work comes from current inspirations with artistic integrity and fine art sensibility.
