- Highly trained, highly experienced instructors with proven superb reputations
- A proprietary method of understanding color theory
- Technique and training with the best quality tools & supplies

- Substantial hands-on experience with live models
- 1:1 student:teacher ratio for hands-on clinic sessions with award-winning practitioners

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.
- We offer 3 ongoing support packages to help you get a proper footing in your new career. Download support package details here.
