Seminars

Find Your Style Seminar
For my completely revamped “Find Your Style” seminar, I have distilled down all of the information that I have collected over hundreds of interviews with the best artists on the planet along with plenty of practical tips and exercises that I have picked from the fine art and illustration world.

Instead of simply stealing tricks from our favorite artists, each student will develop a personal process for adapting the work from their favorite artists to fit their own needs.

My goal with this talk is for attendees to leave with an actionable plan for finding their own unique mark making to bring to their tattooing.

Jake Meeks is a 24 year veteran tattooer from Memphis, TN. In 2013 Jake founded the Fireside Tattoo Network, a tattoo education channel focused on helping artists hone their skills. Over 50,000 tattooers tune in each week to watch Fireside’s weekly tattoo podcast and technique series.

High Contrast Color Tattooing for Darker Skin

The seminar aims you teach a better understanding contrast as the key component of designing any tattoo, its reltionship to grey and designing bold color regardless of skin tone. An in-depth analysis in healed color theory , do’s and don’ts and practical advice to make your color work stand out.

$100 per person

12 slots available

Finding Your Own Style

Techniques and processes of solid design and tattooing.

This is a step-by-step seminar of the methods I have found to make a clean solid tattoo that holds up over time.

From beginning to advanced techniques.

About
For years we all have participated in tattoo expo's around the country, and some were good and some were not. Just like some tattoo shops are good and some are not. It was my desire to provide a show for my tattoo peers and for the people of my community that is devoid of all the problems we all complain about at conventions but still come the next year anyway.
Cheap corner cutting and money hungry organizing; cheap food and shitty trophies; crappy half done screen print shirts that we buy just because we came; less than desirable hotels or convention halls that make you stop tattooing at 10pm.

Well I intended to change all that with The Space City Tattoo Expo! And for the first time in tattoo history, a tattoo expo was held in a W brand Hotel, with unparalleled lodging and service on hand dedicated to our comfort! From stylish show shirts, to four star finger food & a top shelf selection of alcohol & beer; to the live not obnoxiously loud music we plan to provide inside and live reggae & jazz performances, every artist who attends will know the difference and want to come back next year! My personal goal is NOT to 'turn a profit' off this show, rather I want to give back to tattooing and its wonderful people who have done so much for me and mine! Cheers everyone! I am extremely proud to present my show to you for a fourth year! Please come, enjoy yourself, and experience a different type of tattoo convention.
