Do you feel drawn to helping others feel whole? Our beginner paramedical course is intended for the individual who is not yet a permanent makeup or tattoo artist and wants to have a paramedical focus. This course teaches color theory as it applies to scars and post-surgery skin, 3D areola tattooing, scar correction and scar camouflage.
SPCP & AAM RECOGNIZED
Upon successful completion, you will receive a 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 microblading/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.
- We offer ongoing support options to help you get a proper footing in your new career.
