If you want to become a permanent makeup artist, you want to contact the Department of Health for your county. They license different permanent makeup providers and salons.

Education Details

You should plan on completing a thorough training program before you start a career in permanent makeup in Pennsylvania. One of the most crucial parts of your training is learning how to use permanent makeup tools. You use the same tools as tattoo artists, including needles of all different sizes. Not only do you have to get comfortable in your usage of needles, you must learn how to determine which needle is right for each procedure and client. After learning about needles, you can use them in hands-on practical experience. Coil and hand tools are also used. Mixing, changing, and selecting colors are all very important in a permanent makeup career. You might start with color theory, since you need to be able to find colors that work for clients, their coloring, and their preferences. Your curriculum may contain information on primary and secondary colors, mixing colors, and various types of pigment. Permanent makeup, just like tattoos, fades over time. You may learn how to account for that in how you apply and plan your permanent makeup.

License Renewal
Contact County Health Department

In Pennsylvania, permanent makeup and body art practitioners do not have to adhere to any formal licensing and renewal laws. However, your clients will expect you to deliver the highest quality of skills in your field. That’s why you need to speak with schools in your area that offer training programs. They will be able to tell you what the sanitation requirements are, ensure you operate equipment appropriately, as well as other important information. If you’re ready to set your own standards for quality, use our school listings to get started.

Working as a Permanent Makeup Artist

Since permanent makeup is a relatively new procedure, you may need to work hard to get clients and tell people about what you can do. Those who have never heard of permanent makeup may wonder if it's safe, if it looks natural, and whether or not they can afford it. Reaching out to your community and showing people how great permanent makeup can look may help you land new clients. Your workload may be diverse and multifaceted, especially as makeup trends change and grow! The Star reports that permanent makeup artists are getting big business from sudden growth in the field of eyebrow restoration. You may apply light, natural makeup or dark and dramatic makeup—whatever your clients want. In addition, you may simply add a little enhancement to parts of the face that are suffering the effects of aging if you have aging clients. Permanent makeup may allow you to grow a thriving business while helping people look fantastic. By getting into this career while the field is still young, you can be a pioneer of permanent makeup in Pennsylvania! The more experience you gain, the more services you will likely be able to offer to your clients.
