Lectures/Seminars/Guidance

Disclaimer: this is a simple explanation of the services I provide, please contact me for more specifics as well as prices, so I may tailor it exactly to your specific needs. To read more info on how to figure out pricing and contacting me, go to the bottom of this page, else read on if you want to know more about what services I provide. 

Lectures:

I have had great succes, going to high-schools, holding lectures for their students, teaching about tattoo culture, embodied self-identity and what to keep in mind, before they start their own tattoo journeys.
I do not try to scare them away from tattoos, I try my best to teach them to “think before they ink”, using my sociological knowledge (as a sociologist specialised in tattoos) and my personal experience as a tattoo collector (whom has also worked within the community).

I talk about societal context, cultural understanding, history of tattoos, and how all these have changed. What tattoos mean to their own and social identity, and everything you have to keep in mind, before getting tattooed in modern society. So that people, especially young people, may make a much more informed decision, before going under the needle (some of what I teach can also easily be extrapolated to fit other topics, such as plastic surgery and the like).

I tailor these as well I can, to fit the audience, but it will be the same conclusions and advice, no matter whether I do it for 14-16 year old students, high-school students or university students, other academics etc. So that it may be understood within the given context.

Seminars:

Here I get more close and personal with the students, no matter the level of education we are talking about, or even if it is in a workplace or other institution.
I tailor the seminar plan to the specific topic you want mixed in with tattoos, if you don’t want the precise topic I am suggesting.
For a high-school i Holstebro, I tailored a seminar regarding tattoo culture, self-identity and stigma, to fit into their course on cultural understanding, to great succes.
How long a seminar lasts, is of course up to the time schedule of where I have to hold the seminar, but on average around 1-2 hours, but longer seminars can of course be planned as well.

The seminars are meant to provide more in depth knowledge, teaching the participants about what tattoo culture, tattoos and people with tattoos, are actually all about, what problems they face, how it affects their identity. All with the goal of promoting diversity and expanding people’s view of embodied identity (and tattoos)

Tattoo Guidance: 

This entails one of one help/sessions and it is not intended for people, whom are already firmly into the culture and artform of tattooing (though I will accommodate even tattoo collectors if they feel they could use my help). What I intend to do here, is ensure that the individual I am guiding, comes as close to a 0% chance of ever regretting their first/next tattoo, as I can get them.

This entails me guiding them in regards to; how to find the perfect artist and studio for your tattoo project, helping you figure out what style is perfect for the ideas you have of your first/next tattoo, guiding you on how to get the best experience out of your tattoo session, as well as researching the image and its history etc. if needed as well as researching any specific tattoo culture you are curious about

I have helped out many people so far, all whom are loving their tattoos to this day. From an adopted Korean, who wanted a traditional Korean tattoo. To a metal head that wanted the perfect finland and night-wish tattoo and many more.

Important info:

Prices will be negotiated between me and the buyer privately, so it fits with the specific task and needs, thus there are no set prices as of yet.

Else keep in mind that if you are outside of Copenhagen (Denmark) especially, you will need to provide travel expenses, as well as  lodging (if needed).

In regards to personal guidance, a lot can be done over Skype, but if you want a face to face meeting, where it takes place will also need to be arranged, as I have no office as of yet.

Feel free to contact me either through the option on this website or through the facebook page, if you want to make an appointment for guidance or request me for a lecture, or seminar etc. Then we can negotiate the price, the specific details of the task at hand and so on.

I look forward to working with you. (below are some reviews of my services)

Thanks to Mads, I now feel much more certain and confident about which tattoo i’m getting and why. His knowledge of this subject is impressive to say the least.

Mads is exceedingly knowledgeable about tattoos. -“What is there to know?” You may think to yourself. -“Isn’t it just paint on skin?” You might find yourself asking; as I once did. Little did I know that once opened, the Cornucopia of knowledge, would flood the gates of imagination, as rich and detailed stories of the… Continue reading Jun Junge

Tattoo Logia helped me define and develop my tattoo idea. I had spent a long time thinking over motives, but I had never arrived at anything satisfactory on my own.

Mads Wedel Kristensen leverede et spændende, indholdsrigt og relevant oplæg for gymnasiets elever.

Mads’ oplæg kan varmt anbefales til andre gymnasier og skoler med… Continue reading Zahles Gymnasium
