Art of Areola
Areola tattooing is a complex art and our one day workshop is the perfect way to keep your skills up to date and brush up on your techniques. Whether you join us at our more intimate venue in Haywards Heath or at the Royal College of Surgeons in London, you are sure to benefit from this day.
Our workshops are run by our Master Educators who between them have over 200 years of experience in medical tattooing, along with specialised quest speakers. “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts”
