Education Reviews

"Recently I took a course with Andrés Acosta, on color realism.

I must admit, that the knowledge he shared with me has led me to create better over all designs, helped me comprehend color theory and showed me techniques that he uses, while he is designing and tattooing.


Since then, my tattoos and artwork have improved immensely.

He was professional, and he spoke with purpose.

10 out of 10 recommend learning from him, if you are wanting to further your career in tattooing.

When I get the chance, I will enroll in another class"

"I took a private class with Acosta a few months ago, and I wish I had done this sooner! 


He created a very informative slide show about color. Together we worked on practice skin, which helped me learn new tattoo techniques. 


Since this class I feel more confident in color theory and pushing myself to work with more complicated color palettes. I look forward to continuing using the information he taught me to further learn and grow as a tattoo artist. This is a life changing class!"

"Andres’s private class was phenomenal. He gave lots of insight into his design process and taught when and how to deviate from the reference, which allows for more creative freedom when tattooing realism. 


He demonstrated many technical skills that gave more stability when pulling lines and made it easier to create clean borders. Having a small class and one on one instruction was invaluable. 


I came home very inspired and eager to apply the things I learned from the class. 10/10 recommend."

"The private class with Andrés was the hands down the best thing I could have done for my tattoo career. 


We went over concepts, color theory, and had flowing conversations where I felt comfortable asking anything I wanted to know about tattooing. 


We tattooed all day together while discussing his process, techniques, and how I can improve my skillset to become a better tattoo artist. 


I feel confident and inspired to take my tattooing to the next level after my class with Andrés, and I would highly recommend this class to anyone who looking to do the same."
