    The Holistic Approach - Advanced Layering Techniques

    With his Holistic Approach seminar, Nick Baxter presents a methodical, scientific method for devising successful tattoo strategies for any scenario. The holistic approach aims to shake tattooists free of rigid and limiting mindsets by presenting the tattoo process in a big picture context, in which any tattooer can find their own unique solutions regardless of genre or style.

    In this condensed 60 minute presentation, Nick will focus on advanced layering techniques as solutions to many of the complex challenges tattooers face while executing large multi-session pieces.

    1 hour lecture with slide presentation, followed by critique and audience Q&A.

    Attendees are invited to submit photos of in-progress or completed tattoos prior to the event, for possible advice and critique on how layering solutions could be applied to either improve the finished look of the tattoo, or bring it to a completed state in future sessions.
