Turkey’s first tattoo academy begins training


With the aim of training skilled tattoo artists, the Tattoo Master Academy opened its doors with the cooperation of Beykent University.


The first tattoo academy to have an international training program in Turkey, various options are offered to trainees, including full-time, part-time, evening and weekend courses. The Professional Qualification Certificate, which will be issued at the end of the training, will be valid in 27 Member States of the European Union. The training of the academy will begin on June 1 and will last two months.

Tattoo Master Academy, founded by Billur Ergün Cengiz and Batuhan Cengiz, was opened in order to train skilled tattoo artists under the roof of a university. Cengiz said academy interns can experience college life without being college students.

“The theoretical teaching will take place on the campus of the University of Beykent. In this way, our students will also have a university experience. In other words, a primary school graduate and a university graduate can apply to us and participate in our education program,” Cengiz said.

“The aim of the program is to train qualified tattoo artists and recruit these artists from our own studios and send them to studios in Europe with which we have cooperation. The training program will continue for two months. The trainees will have a university certificate at the end of the program and, in addition, the professional qualification certificate with an exam. Thus, they will have job opportunities in 27 countries,” Cengiz added.


Stating that the practical training will be given in their own studio in Istanbul’s Akaretler district, Funda Şenoğlu, one of the academy’s tattoo artists, said, “We provide education under an academic roof, with practitioners and qualified instructors.

In recent times, this work is really considered an art. Because if we really consider the human body as a canvas, we transfer our art onto this canvas.

Şenoğlu also said that the training to be given at the academy includes master practitioners with international awards.

“You can attend the workshops of the master practitioners and watch their performances. But first, they discover the history of the tattoo. Then we offer a basic painting lesson. After that, we move on to the hygiene step, which is one of the most important steps because the riskiest part of this job actually starts there. After introducing the equipment, we start the applications on artificial leathers, then continue with human models for a while. In the end, trainees receive a certificate that will be valid in all countries of the European Union. This certificate makes him a universal artist. Another important advantage is that we provide job opportunities for our students in our own studios,” Şenoğlu said.
