  1. This course was so well done in every way. There are very few reliable resources online and most are frankly very amateur. I really appreciate the time and effort put into it and especially how you mentioned inclusivity and treating all clients equally. I will definitely recommend this course to others and will have to get my hands on your handpoke tools once I’m more experienced!

  2. I’ve been handpoking for about a year now, and the information regarding technique has been so incredibly helpful to me! I’ve been under the illusion that poking at a 45 degree angle was a necessity until now – far too much unreliable information out there. Thanks so much for everything, Ann. I’ve been struggling a little bit with aspects of my trade, and taking this course has given me the confidence I need to succeed. I promise I’ll be back with a tip on my next payday!

  3. Graciaaaas Ann!!! this course has been helpful AF and you’re adorable <3 looking forward for future courses and for my handpoke tool (:

  4. Hey Ann. Thank you SO much for taking the time to put this together and for sharing all of this information. I’ve learned so much from you and even the stuff I already “knew” I feel a lot more confident about. You are a super star and I will also be back to tip you the next time I get paid. Cheers 🙂

  5. Hi Ann!
    Thank you so much for doing this course, it was so helpful! 🙂
    I already tried handpoking (on myself) but i never really felt confident in what i was doing.This course was so helpful and totally worth it. <3

  6. Hey Ann,

    Thank you so much for this resource! I have been handpoking for a little over a year now and these videos are something I will refer to time and time again! My only major struggle is that I have one hand and although I use my nub to stretch skin it’s not ideal for really fleshy places. It also makes gloves changes a bit more tricky and ripping pieces of medical tape. I was thinking of setting up something like a toilet paper role using a metal one to help me hold and cut tape. I’d store the tape in a sterile container so dust doesn’t get stuck to it, but any recommendations for this? And lastly, do you disinfect the scissors you use in the videos? I use scissors and kind of obsessively sterile them with MadaCide wipes. Again thank you so much!

    1. Hey Jon <3
      Yes I do desinfect my scissors after every client. Scissors are not really in much contact with any client but they are still part of your gear 😉 I don't know if I do it in the videos but because there are no real clients around since weeks I might not have done it 😀
      Because of the stretching: I often tattooed myself on my left arm when I started to tattoo and also could just use one hand. It might work without stretching much at some points but as you said it is difficult if you have skin that moves more. In this case i often used tape to stretch the skin. (Maybe try kinesio Tape, if you have heard of it) That way you could "source out" most of the stretching and use your nub only to do some corrections in the stretching when you need it or have it free for the paper towel.
      For the tape cutting: have you considered using somethin like this: https://www.karton.eu/Tisch-Abroller-bis-25-mm-weiss?gclid=Cj0KCQiA34OBBhCcARIsAG32uvMr49aRXlZhfLS0kuf0Z6TUldtNMRkLcgiuFRPPDf_4k1W_LiZB83EaAjDUEALw_wcB
      and maybe securing it to a surface? There is also some that are made extra heavy to be used only with one hand. If it is still not working, maybe also try another tape brand. Some of the medical tapes are really hard to roll off. With some I even struggle using two hands. Thats why I don’t use them 😀
      I am deeply impressed that you don’t let having only one hand get in your way of doing what you want!
      If you ever need help with figureing out how to best work around something you can also always contact me via email and I will help as good as I can!
      ( I am sometimes a little slow with answering but I answer 😉

  7. Hi Ann, thank you SO much ….!
    So much is clearer now. Especially at what angle to poke with the needle, I had been told to hold it at about 45° and I now realize that it can’t work like that. And it has been really hard to understand what I was doing wrong. I have been struggling so much with tight curves especially and I can’t wait to try it all out now !
    Also the shading techniques where so helpful. I’ve have been obsessing on the shading of other artist without understanding how they possibly could do it, so, thank you so much again.
    I will be watching it all over again for sure, thank you for the time, the precision and the technical explanations that you have put into this course !

  8. Thank you so much for this incredible course, Ann!
    I was thinking about beginning to handpoke for over a year now and after my final uni exams i treated myself with your course! Now I finally got the confidence to say that I feel ready to start tattooing! I made notes while watching every Video so I have everything on hand if I need it or am unsure about something.
    Thanks for sharing this couse for such an affordable pricing, I‘ll make sure to send you a tip for your hard work!
    Thanks also for sharing your favourite brands also with keeping sustainability in mind because this is an important point for me when starting tattooing – to produce as few waste as possible!
    Now I‘m off ordering tons of supplies and beginning this new journey.(:

    Love and Thanks,
    Clara <3
