Advanced Education for Experienced

Machine Tattooers.

Restorative Tattooing to Restore Confidence.

If you can dream it, we can do it.

Stacie-Rae works with advanced educators from around the world to raise the standards for training in the Paramedical Tattoo field.  We all put ART first, so that restorative tattoo actually lends itself to a natural result worthy of acceptance.

The trend that saddens us the most is this new idea that tattooing is something that can be taught in a matter of days by sitting in a class and listening to an instructor.  Or even ONLINE!?  We realize the great responsibility to the clients that comes with this amazing and dynamic career.  We must do things artistically and technically sound above all.  

Stacie-Rae pioneered an approach to tattoo education for the experienced tattooist looking to round out their skillset and add a new service to their established roster.  Becoming a healer through the ART of tattoo is a high honour, indeed.  One must first master their craft in healthy skin, before they are ready to move into challenging tissue.
We take a hands-on, immersive approach then follow up with a guided practicum - the first of its kind and certain to be copied by our peers.  We focus on collaboration and learning from each other in our small classes of 3-5.  We truly care about the tattooers that we work with and we aim to create better artists than we are ourselves, as each generation grows what they've learned from those who came before them.  Responsible training above all.

Tattooing is always harder than it looks, but we have made the easiest protocol to follow and created the most advanced training tools.  If you already understand your machines, your needles, and the skin, then we'd love to work with you and help you achieve your own best self, and find your inner greatness!



This is collaborative work in training with Diana Demasi.

Collaborative work is always the best because our models get the best of both worlds with 2 artists!
