The objective of this class is to informally introduce you to the history of American Traditional Tattoo Flash, identifying key imagery, the symbolism and meaning of the imagery, and the importance of elements such as bold colour and strong linework in creating a great design.

You’ll be introduced to the process of sketching, retracing and refining a basic flash design, before moving on to simple shading/ blending techniques with coloured pencil using the traditional 5 colour pallet.

Once you’ve fine-tuned your skills, you’ll be given time to work on a completed artwork (using your own design or one of the flash designs provided) to take home with you, or maybe even get it as your next tattoo.
