Steps To Become A Permanent Makeup Artist

We are excited that you are as interested about learning about becoming a permanent makeup artist as we are to inform you. While it’s not an easy path you’ve chosen, Premier Pigments has all of the necessary information you’ll need to help you. Becoming a permanent makeup artist will allow you to increase your income by thousands of dollars and make many people happy because you’re providing a service each client who comes to you can always enjoy for the rest of their life. Tattoo makeup is something that helps to make a person feel better about themselves and be flawless in appearance. These steps will help you get on your way to becoming not only a permanent makeup artist, but one that clients will come to because you’re providing a reliable and experienced service.

Do Some Research

The first step you need to take to become a permanent makeup artist is to make sure you’re 100 percent committed to this career route. While you might think you want to be a permanent makeup artist, make sure that it’s really want you want to do. You don’t want to get through the five-day Basic Permanent Makeup Course to figure out that you don’t actually want to do this. In addition, if you don’t like to touch people’s skin, then you won’t be able to get through the three days of hands-on-training where you need to perform tattoo makeup on other people. Do some research to make sure that this is for you.

A tattoo makeup artist is a person who is a beauty professional and will help to perform services that provide applying permanent makeup to people who want to look beautiful. You can make between $55,000 to $80,000 since it is such a specialized field and tattoo makeup artists are usually self-employed and not on salary. You’ll create the appearance of cosmetic eyebrows, eyeliners, lip color, and everything else that involves traditional makeup. What’s neat about tattoo makeup artists is that they don’t just focus on people who just don’t want to pay mass amounts of money on makeup anymore. This also includes helping people feel better about themselves because of scarring, diseases, or deformities. Permanent makeup artists can do scar camouflage and areola repigmentation. If this sounds like something you’d like, then this path is the right one for you.

Find An Educational Program

Once you’ve decided that this career path is for you, then you’ll want to find an educational program that you feel is the right one in your budget and time frame. You can come to Premier Pigments for your education courses. We make them easy to take and they are very thorough. As a leader in permanent makeup, we strive to have a high quality educational program. When you decide to come to Premier Pigments for education, you’ll have access to our new five-day Basic Permanent Makeup Course, three days of hands-on-training where you’ll practice on models, and you’ll gain the confidence you need to start working as soon as possible. You’ll learn techniques and solutions to ensure the clients who comes to you is happy and will leave feeling like a million dollars. With our experience, you’ll have access to thousands of procedures you might not get with another educational program.

Go Through The Required Trainings And Complete Them

After you’ve decided on an educational program, you can go through the required trainings and complete them. You’ll need to make sure that you go through a Safety And First Aid Training and the required courses to complete the training. Our courses won’t take longer than a few weeks, but there are other ones that can take 300 hours to six months. In addition, you might have to go through a longer training series because you live in a state that requires you to complete an apprenticeship program so you can apply for the licensure. In other states, you don’t have to worry about jumping through a few more hoops to get your license.

Apply For State Licensure

Once you’ve completed the required trainings or the apprenticeship, you’ll want to apply for the state licensure. This includes meeting the requirements in your state to submit an application to the state licensing board for you to become a permanent makeup artist. Any candidates who are applying for licensure have to pass an examination, which demonstrates that you have the practical skills necessary to be a reliable tattoo makeup artist. The examination you’re required to take also shows that you have the knowledge of cleanliness and safety techniques that allow you to keep your clients safe. Lastly, you’ll need to follow the rules and regulations that are for tattoo artists in the state, so your clients are in good hands.

Go For Your Certification

Finally, you’ll want to go for your certification to finish off the process to become a certified tattoo makeup artist. You’ll need to go through at least 1,000 hours of studying permanent cosmetics to meet the requirements and you’ll need to go through a bloodborne pathogen class to ensure you are knowledgeable about safety in your field.

While this process might sound like a long one, when you come to Premier Pigments, we’ll talk you through everything you need to know, so you’ll be ready to go through your required state licensure applications.
