Tattoo School – From disabled veterans to high school dropouts, students from all walks of life are featured in TLC’s newest series.
Based in Shreveport, LA, the renowned World’s Only Tattoo School provides prospective tattoo artists with a once-in-a-lifetime, two-week intensive course on the art of tattooing. Instructed by Dr. Bill Pogue, who has over 38 years of teaching experience, the class includes an array of artists with different goals and expectations. Whether it is a career change, secret talent or desire to turn life around, Pogue’s students will develop the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to break into the highly-competitive tattoo industry.
Over the two-week intensive course, students will be tested on three ‘real world’ challenges that mimic the situations they may find themselves in as a working tattoo artist. Each challenge will test a specific skill or technique that is required to become successful in the business. From sketching to inking human VIP clients, the students will be subjected to all aspects of tattoo artistry. Upon graduation, the student with the best final, original tattoo is gifted with a golden gun, which will last for their entire career.
