Upon Certification, you will be given all your equipment! You will have all the equipment you need to practice tattoo during class and take home prior to doing your models.


We (your instructors and the Northwest Muse Team) will be a continuing support group for you after your class. You will be added to our group forum Exclusive to Northwest Muse Students and Participants for ongoing Q&A and resources. We also encourage you to stop by the shop and continue to learn after class!
