Starting in 1982, Dean Deakyne has been tattooing for over two decades. Early in his career he was heavily involved in the tattoo circuit which led to a rapid advancement of his skills. He eventually moved to Southern California and opened two tattoo studios (Sick & Twisted Productions and Orange County Ink). Deciding to further advance his art, he left the studios to pursue new artistic endeavors at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects. Dean has won numerous international tattoo awards and has been featured in newspapers, television and magazines world-wide.
"I so wish that Dean Deakyne's instructional tutorials had been available when I first picked up a tattoo machine. As I've been a professional fine artist for many years, I decided to try tattooing on my own, thinking...."I can draw and paint, how hard can it be to tattoo?" I soon found out that without any guidance, it was very hard indeed. Then I had the breakthrough experience of watching Dean's tutorials. Dean actually tattoos the pieces while you watch and narrates step by step, so there's no guesswork about what he's doing. Every basic question I had previously (and many advanced ones, as well) were answered, from artistic to practical."
