Trainee Details

  • Name: Keith Cross

Training requirements:

Like many of our students, Keith contacted Bianco Academy with plans to change his career and start his own laser tattoo removal business. As an experienced paramedic with a vast understanding of anatomy and physiology, Keith was able to begin his training with Bianco with the Level 4 Core of Knowledge training. On completion of this entry-level course, Keith commenced his Level 5 Laser Tattoo Removal training.

Keith travelled to our Milton Keynes-based Academy from South Yorkshire to complete his training, which was split over two consecutive weeks. This was done to fit in around Keith’s working and family life. Bianco Academy provided Keith with overnight accommodation, ensuring he was refreshed and ready to learn.

About The Training:

The first two days of training were classroom-based, and our trainer covered the theory Keith would need to progress to his practical days. At Bianco Academy, we adopt an engaging and interactive approach, and Keith asked lots of questions to ensure he had a thorough understanding.

The following Monday, Keith returned for his practical days, shadowing our trainer while they carried out consultations, performed laser tattoo removal treatments on cosmetic and standard tattoos, as well as the carbon laser peels.

The following day, Keith carried out consultations and treatments himself, including tattoo removal, removal of cosmetic tattooed eyebrows and beauty spots, and carbon peels, under close supervision and guidance.

Completely impressed with Keith’s capabilities, our trainer said they were “second to none!”

Keith was huge fun to have around and showed a real passion for his new career, which we look forward to hearing all about.

After Training:

Keith now has his Sheffield-based clinic, Philistine, up and running and recently received his laser tattoo machine. Bartek travelled to Sheffield to deliver the machine, then spent the rest of the day with Keith treating clients of his own, carrying out laser tattoo removal and carbon laser peel treatments. Keith’s long term dream is still to offer a mobile laser tattoo service, but for now, he is very happy working in his clinic.

Congratulations, Keith; we have loved seeing your success so far and know we will keep in touch!

Student Feedback

"What can I say? One of the best courses I’ve ever been on, I was genuinely sad when it was over and was considering moving nearby so I can visit more often! I attended the Laser Tattoo removal course, and the entire package was expertly put together and delivered. Very solid theoretical base followed by excellent, mentored hands-on practical experience. I would definitely recommend, and would not recommend anywhere else! Thank you to everyone at team Bianco. It was emotional!"
