Handpoke tattooing is the origin of contemporary tattoo culture. Tatau is the polynesian root of the english word “tattoo”. Tatau means “to connect”, as tattooing by hand is an ancient practice to connect the cosmic Soul more deeply with the human Self.
This is done by releasing past trauma from the cells of the physical body and cleansing the frequency of the electromagnetic field during the Tatau Ritual. This happens with the assistance from beings of the Otherworld.
During a handpoke tattoo ritual, a tattoo needle without machine power gets poked through the first layer of skin and places the color pigments in the second layer of the skin, the so-called “leather skin”. This procedure varies from the regular tattooing technique as far as it feels way less intrusive and doesn’t affect the skin as much, but takes a lot more time.
One really experiences the process of tattooing on all levels of being.
From the beginning of my tattooing career in 2008, I worked “only” in this way. After fifteen years of experience in handpoke tattooing, the time has come to pass on everything I’ve learnt about this ancient practice, because new fields of work are calling for me.
The How To Handpoke Tatau Workshop takes place on a weekend, i.e. Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m in Sarnen, Switzerland.
You will learn everything you need to know to ink lines and dots by hand, including which materials can be ordered where, the metaphysical meaning of the individual parts of the body and everything important about hygiene and anatomy.
I tattoo according to the original Polynesian principle, which always includes trauma healing on the cellular level. This practice is also being passed on to you during the Workshop. There are a maximum of five participants on site per course.
You will practice on yourself under my supervision. If you don’t want to see your first tattoo for the rest of your life, there is the possibility to work with bloodlines during the Workshop; that means I can also teach you how to make proper handpoked tattoos without using ink.
It really takes a lot of patience and practice to handpoke lines as I do. I have over 15 years of experience in handpoke tattooing and have taught myself every bit of knowledge on my own. But if you take the time to practice and approach it with passion, you can get very, very far with the knowledge from this Workshop.
The cost is CHF 1’515.- and includes that I continue to coach you and your group via WhatsApp as long as you need it. That means you can start to grow this skillset while I’m available to guide you anytime.
