At the Sauler Institute, we believe knowledge is power. Our Fundamental Training provides students with the knowledge of the medical tattooing industry. Students are given the opportunity to learn about the tools and techniques used by the Sauler Institute in the medical tattooing industry. Our seven day class is constructed and taught as a beginner training class. After completing our class, students should expect to understand the art of medical tattooing. Students should not expect to master the art of medical tattooing subsequent to taking our class. We cannot guarantee job placement, or work in the medical tattooing industry after completing our class. Medical tattooing is an art, and should be practiced as such.

“Practice makes the master.” – Patrick Rothfuss
