Tattoo Illustration Class

How to design a tattoo



1.5 hours Class size 1 to 60 label $50 - $60 ($60 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $50 for 2+ guests)


Your host, Work-Shop is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

WARNING: This is not your average illustration class!

Sydney, rejoice!  We’re bringing you a tattoo artist at the height of his game, to teach you all you need to know about tattoo illustration.

Renowned artist Aidan Mckenzie aka Sprinkles will guide you through different genres of tattoo illustration, teaching you the tricks of the trade for anyone wanting to improve their drawing or just interested in tattoo art. We’ll start with a brief history of 1940s to current traditional tattooists and how traditional American tattooing has created an extremely popular commercial art form before getting straight into it! You’ll get an introduction of the basics of tattoo illustration, design and techniques, as well as an understanding on how to achieve correct flow and balance within the illustration to work with various parts of the body. We’ll cover popular elements of traditional tattooing such as scriptwriting, banners, flowers, tigers & panther heads, girls, wings, snakes and skulls before moving onto personalising your own illustration. Guided through the process from start to finish, Aidan will be there every step of the way while you nail the different stages from transferring a sketch to tracing paper, illustration paper to the final copy.

Please note: This class requires at least eight students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

  • Expert guidance from one of Sydney’s leading tattoo artists

  • All drawing materials & art supplies provided

  • A finished illustration to take home


What to bring

  • Sketchpad (if you’d prefer to sketch in your own book)

  • Pencil and markers (don’t fret if you forget, we have some!)

“Sprinkles” is a self taught Tattoo and Contemporary Artist based in Sydney.

Hailing from humble Palmerston North New Zealand, with a well rooted sense of Cook Island, Maori and Chinese heritage “Sprinkles” is now earning a well respected name in his Sydney base. With a strong thirst for progression and an ever evolving style, Sprinks’ works strive to portray the many different faces we can find within ourselves.

Based on a foundation of family and friendship, his “Sprinkle Stacks” and mystical creations ride an evolved relationship with tattoo machines, aerosol cans, brushes, intricate linework and symmetry. Unafraid of a subtle nod to the darker side of imagery, skulls, fantastical animals, majestic beings and beautiful women commonly compose Sprinks’ artistic vocabulary.

“Sprinkles” has been Tattooing full time for three years and specializes in working with black ink.

Sprinkles is a has a really warm and open personality. His teaching style is great and he's got a bunch of fun little tips and tricks to make tattooing illustration feel less daunting.

Would definitely recommend it :)

Regine Clarke • Nov 2019


The tattoo class was fun and informative! A lot of topics were touched including stick and poke tattooing, and factors to consider when designing a tattoo, like orientation. Also had the chance to create our own stencil and transfer it to our skin for tattooing. Sprinkles is very experienced and nice and eager to answer questions.

Class was super comprehensive, I had a lot of fun and learned a lot more than I expected. Sprinks is delightful, I'd love to do another class with him - it was basically Ink+Empathy 101.
