Tattoo Academy

Art & professionalism combined – The first tattoo school in Switzerland

The Tattoo Academy is aimed at people with artistic talent who want to become experts in the profession or already have knowledge and want to improve and perfect it. The training is intended equally for beginners and advanced tattoo artists. Basic requirements: you are at least 18 years of age, have artistic skill and completed secondary education or higher. Learning the art of tattooing requires a lot of time, discipline and practice. We bring these qualities and also expect them from our students.

We offer different modules in both theory and praxis. You will work on all facets of a tattoo studio, from job-specific hygiene and regulations to design and tattoo techniques as well as business planning and customer service. The basic training program is spread over several months. All instructors are trained professionals.


We will teach you everything there is to know about tattooing – whether it is hygiene regulations, infectiology, microbiology or customer service.


Let the needles do the talking! With years of practical knowledge, our artists will guide you to towards your dream job.
