Transitioning from Microblading to Device
You’ve trained hard and mastered the art of Microblading. Now, you are ready to offer your clients more advanced brow techniques, eyeliner, lip color, or even paramedical tattooing using a device. We’ve created our Crossover Fundamental to give you the basic knowledge of working with a device so that you can expand your current services and achieve the skill level necessary to take our advanced device courses. Not sure if this is the right course for you? Drop us a line and a staff member will help you decide your education path.
You are eligible to take our Crossover Fundamental only if the following applies:
You’ve completed a prior training in Microblading and have proof of completion available to submit for review by our academy staff
You have a basic knowledge of brow mapping
You feel confident working on clients
The Crossover Fundamental is the right choice for you if:
New to permanent makeup with no prior training? No problem, check out our Beginner Fundamental Courses instead.
This course is for the comfortable Microblader-only who wants to learn permanent makeup using a digital device. Procedures covered include Eyeliner, Lips, and Powder/Ombre Brows. Credit (20hrs) will be given for prior training. This class meets from 9am-7pm for four consecutive days and has a 40 hour home study component. Applicants for this class must provide prior training information to determine eligibility for this course.
*Please note: This class does not include Brow-Mapping or Hairstroke Patterns, as it’s expected the student has already learned these skills in their prior training and experience (which is how we are able to reduce the class to 4 days).
Certificate: Upon successful completion, you will receive a 100 hour certificate recognized by both national accrediting authorities (SPCP and AAM) that shows you have completed the fundamental/primary micropigmentation training necessary to become a certified micropigmentation artist.

I have my certification. Now what?
In most states across the USA, permanent makeup and microblading is licensed as body arts (tattooing). Prior to certification, it's important that you contact your state and local board of health agencies regarding the rules and regulations for practicing permanent makeup in your area. Some cities/towns will require a number of supervised procedures. Others will require an apprenticeship. Some cities/towns require only Blood Borne Pathogens certification.
Every state and/or locality has its own regulations; Prettyology is leading the charge for regulations in MA.
Our explanation of how to get licensed in micropigmentation will be helpful.
