Ahren Bloomquist & Josh Ford | Tattoo Machine Seminar
Time: Sunday, 10:00 am
Fee: $400 (includes tattoo machine)


Tattoo Machine Tuning, Repair and Assembly
This seminar is designed to expand your working knowledge of coil tattoo machines and simplify some of the confusion around tuning and troubleshooting. In the seminar you will also be supplied with a Liner machine kit to assemble and tune with help from Ahren and Josh. Once assembled and tuned, the machine is yours to keep.
While there are many seminars out there for tattoo machines, this will be unique as you get two perspectives on theory and approach from two well established and respected machine builders with over 25 years of experience to share, as well as hands on experience.
You will leave this seminar understanding how to troubleshoot problems with machines, as well as how to modify and fine tune to fit your tattooing needs.
