Become an expert in machine technique, 3D tattoo and anatomy and leave ready to work.

Training FAQs

We purposefully keep our class sizes to 6 or fewer students. This ensures quality one-on-one time with the instructor as well as develop relationships with your peers. You will also have quality time with your instructor while working on a live model. Working directly with the master artist is the key to a successful technique and training.

Tattoo licenses are required to work in most states. If you are not currently licensed in your state, please become familiar with your state guidelines, you can’t work on clients in your state without obtaining required state licensing. We do not license for tattoo in any state.

Note: Oregon licensing requires that tattoo artists attend full time school, 50 practical’s and must pass state boards to obtain a license. This licensing process is lengthy and cannot be avoided. Our courses teach additional technique and while they can be taken before obtaining Oregon licensing, we like to make it clear that Oregon residents, working in Oregon, must have a valid Oregon Tattoo License. This training does not count toward Oregon school required hours but does count toward your continued educational hours. We teach technique not taught in Oregon Licensed Tattoo Schools, so our training is invaluable to a new artist working in the cosmetic tattoo industry.

The course spans two days. The online training portion of the course is available for 12 months and you can access it as often as you like. We also offer support via email for life. Your questions will be answered by Daela Academy staff and escalated to Master Artists if need be.

Yes! Working with a live model is imperative to your success. Learning how to work on the skin is the most important part of an in-person course. Each student will have time on the skin to learn with proper one on one instruction. Notes: Some courses will include a shared model, while others will have individual models. If you cannot prove technique on fake skins, we may not allow you to work on a live model.  However, if you have not mastered a sufficient technique and need more time to practice, you may attend an additional class and work on a live model at no additional cost to you. We will require that you submit skins to us for review before signing you up for an additional class.

We provide continental breakfast and lunch and beverages.  If you have strict dietary concerns, please let us know in advance.  We would love to accommodate your dietary restrictions, if we cannot then we will recommend you bring your own food.

We have a beautiful new state-of-the-art private training space located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, just a few minutes' walk from the waterfront, delicious restaurants and hotels!

We are proud to say that class is casual and fun! You may dress comfortably, but please be aware that we take video and pictures during class. Dress as you would at your place of business, when working on clients. Jeans are fine, funky is fine. Our community is very supportive and inclusive, please express yourself and leave here feeling inspired and empowered.

Just bring yourself. We will provide everything you need for class.

*Areola trainee note: If you already have a tattoo machine that you want to use, please bring it. We will ensure it will work properly for the technique. You are not required to bring a machine, we supply them for students.
