Choose Us for Your Education
The tattoo and body piercing programs at ATPI are flexible because we understand that everyone is different and has their own unique schedules. You won’t have to quit your day job to go to school at ATPI, and your school schedule can be up to you.
Unlike stereotypical tattoo studios, there’s no “hazing” or “coffee-getting” here. Your time here is spent wisely, and we put you right to work so you can start getting hands-on experience as soon as possible.
ATPI is a safe space for all and all are welcome. We take pride in the welcoming environment we’ve built here and want to ensure all students and clients feel comfortable in the studio.
A Clean Facility
We take safety seriously, and all our artists are trained on bloodborne pathogens as well as sterilization procedures to ensure the protection of the canvas and the artist throughout every tattoo or body piercing session. We strive to exceed industry standards.Get in Touch for More Info
