About Tattoo Master Class

Tattoo Master Class is an educational event for tattooers like no other. This private experience is equal parts seminar and workshop.

David Tevenal is a father, muralist, illustrator and tattoo artist. His work is influenced by Comic Books, Pop Culture, Contemporary Art, Americana, and Japanese tattoo imagery. Dave has worked with many great companies like Marvel Comics, Vice Media, The Hundreds, and more. Dave tattoos full time at Memento Tattoo & Gallery in Columbus, Ohio. He also works a night shift creating multimedia art pieces while most of us are sleeping.

During day one, you will work through the process of creating art that will become a tattoo. Attendees will work along side them with the ability to ask questions along the way. You will start at the beginning with client reference & follow along to a completed design that both the artist & client will be excited about. Whether you work digitally or in a physical medium, they have tips & advice that will propel your designs to the next level & help you impress your clients. Years of hard work & expertise have helped him create a process that is effective & efficient. Watch & mimic this streamlined method to make the most of your hard work & time.

On the second day, you will watch as they make a tattoo, start to finish. Watch, learn, and ask questions as they prepare the drawing, stencil, and client. During application of the tattoo, they will walk you through, step by step, as you look on. Live in-person viewing & multiple camera angles will make sure you don’t miss a thing. They will narrate their approach to the tattoo & answer all questions from attendees in real time. Finally, they will discuss photographing, video of the fresh tattoo, & offer his advice on healing heavily-saturated tattoos.

On day 3, we will lead art discussions, critique, & time to make physical art. Reviewing and understanding the lessons learned in Day 1 & 2 is critical for retaining knowledge.  Day 3 will end with a private group dinner. 

Jake Farris & Jes Farris, organizers of The Explorer Tattoo Conference, Fort Wayne Tattoo Convention, & owners of Studio 13 Tattoo will be on hand each day. Feel free to take advantage of the resource for business advice, career growth, portfolio critique, & marketing tips.
