Monolith Tattoo Academy FAQ

Why Monolith Tattoo Academy?

In 2011, Edward & Melanie Kehoe had a vision to open a tattoo studio of monolithic proportions and standards. They wanted to have one studio with the best-of-the-best tattoo artists, each specializing in their own styles, all under one roof. Since its inception, Monolith Tattoo Studio has exceeded those expectations and so, in 2020 the Kehoe’s made the decision to move forward with their dream of providing a unique opportunity for upcoming artists to receive a specialized and advanced education in tattooing. Monolith Tattoo Academy is an excellent program with highly experienced instructors, superior curriculum, and exceptional facilities and supplies. Because your success starts here.
