What is included In the kit?

What licenses do I need to be a permanent makeup artist?

In the state of IL you do not need a license.  Please check with your state to verify their requirements.

How many clients can be done with my kit I receive?

Your ink will last you approximate 75 clients and your disposable tools (required in the US, unless you have an autoclave)  will service 20 clients.  If you charge only $250 per client that would be a profit of $5000.

How long before I recoup my investment?

There are some variables to consider when answering this question, such as how much you will charge and how much time you will dedicate to your practice.

These equations demonstrate some common scenarios:

$250 x 20 clients = $5000

$350 x 15 clients = $5250

$450 x 12 clients = $5400

Can I receive my training kit early to start practicing?

Proper technique is of the utmost importance, any practice before class could instill poor skills sets.  We look forward to providing you with your kit on the first day of class.

Is Lunch Provided?

We provide a good morning spread (bagels, cream cheese, yogurt, & fruit) each day.
A Certification Celebration Luncheon will be held on your final day of the Microblading & Shading class only.
