How many tattoos will I apply to live models?
In the beginner course, you spend the first week learn tattooing. Starting in the second week of training, you will apply a minimum of 5 larger tattoos each week until the end of the course. Advanced students begin tattooing on models on the first day, and will also apply a minimum of 5 tattoos per week. We don’t restrict students to small tattoos like some other schools do.
Is the school licensed to teach art?
Yes, we are the only school in Thailand registered by the Thai government for “tattoo and art courses”. This means we have to maintain set standards for safety and hygiene.
What are the qualifications of the instructors?
Our main instructor Kanthima, co-founder of the school, is an experienced, award-winning tattooist. She attends international conventions to keep up with the latest innovations in tattoo artistry. She’s been helping students from all over the world learn to tattooing for 15 years, and many of our students have gone on to start their own studios.

We’re the first and oldest art school in Asia. The center was founded in 2000, and the school in 2004.
Do you offer any special training that other schools do not?

Traditionally, with this method the needle is attached to a bamboo stick. We use stainless steel needles because it’s more hygienic. We also give advice on how to succeed in a artist career.
