State License Requirements

Before offering permanent makeup services in New Hampshire, you must become licensed as a body art practitioner. You must submit proof of your hepatitis B vaccinations and completion of a course in sterilization. You are required to undergo a 1,500-hour apprenticeship to become a body art practitioner. When submitting your application, you must pay $150 for your initial practitioner license.

Education Details

As a permanent makeup student, you'll learn how to use tattoo needles for cosmetic reasons and for camouflage reasons. That is to say, you'll learn how to create the effect of makeup on different parts of the body, but you'll also learn how to disguise burns, cuts, scars, and other blemishes with the use of pigments and tattooing techniques.

Cosmetology license renewal in New Hampshire happens every two years in the licensee's birth month. You must have submitted your renewal application by the last day of your birth month. The cost to renew a beauty practitioner's license is $40. Currently, 28 hours of cosmetology continuing education is required for cosmetology instructors during each licensure period. Though continuing education is not required for most other beauty practitioners' licenses, cosmetology CEUs are always recommended to stay current in the industry.

Permanent makeup is slightly different from other cosmetology specialties in terms of where you can work. Any place that hires a permanent makeup artist must have a tattooing license in the state of New Hampshire. This may mean that you see more job openings at tattoo parlors than at salons. This may change as permanent makeup is requested more at salons and spas. If you would rather work for yourself, you can rent a room at a tattoo parlor or salon, get your tattooing license, and set your own rates.
