For hundreds of years, the practice of drawing and painting from direct observation has been a powerful learning tool for artists.

This training method for honing one’s visual perception has traditionally been practiced in the genres of still life, landscape, and figurative art.

Working in these three areas of representational art provides a thorough and well-rounded understanding of artistic principles such as light, shadow, value, color, and form that also directly apply to the tattoo medium.

For tattooers

We believe that any artist or tattooer who trains in these classical disciplines will develop the strong artistic fundamentals necessary for making outstanding work, regardless of chosen style.

Inspiring Tours was designed to teach these valuable artistic skills in beautiful locations, in a highly interactive small group setting that feels like an art retreat for tattooers.

As the name suggests, we know you’ll leave feeling inspired, rejuvenated, and empowered to take the next steps in your artistic or tattooing journey.
