Fireside Tattoo Network was founded in 2013 with the goal of “blurring the lines between tattooing and fine art.” 

Our podcast interviews, Technique episodes, Online Courses and Workshops are focused on introducing principles and techniques from the long established mediums of classical painting, illustration and design and applying them to the unique challenges that tattoo artists face. 

Over the years we have expanded our focus to include reviews and tutorials on tattoo equipment and supplies, tattoo science and physics and much more.

Learn with Online Courses

Start your journey with our beginning course, Foundations and learn the idea behind the Fireside Method and how to apply it in your drawings.

Methods are any individual artist’s way of making marks – the things they do that make their drawings unique to them. And there are as many methods as there are artists, probably more. It’s very difficult to try to learn based only on applying other people’s methods. It’s much more efficient and much more effective to focus on principles.

These principles are all covered in much greater detail in Module 1 of our Foundations course.
