A pioneer in the Inland Pacific Northwest tattoo community, TELISA SWAN is sharing her insights on how it all works!
This seminar is FREE for all professional tattooers, and only $10.00 for anyone who is just curious as to how tattoo pigments actually work, and the history of it.
This is a basic course explaining what pigments are made from. This is not a course on how to make your own tattoo pigments, rather it is designed to inform artists on the basic composition of pigments and includes a short film explaining why tattoo pigments are permanent in the skin.
Telisa will go over the difference between organic and inorganic pigments and why they may, or may not, be safe to use under the skin, as well as what comprises pigments used for many other purposes including paints and dyes.
