*This 1 day CE course is a great educational class for Permanent Makeup Artists who want to learn more about  Body Art Tattooing. Consider this class as a small bridge to open your mind to some fundamental  tattoo techniques, the difference between PMU vs Tattooing, Depth and Saturation, Pigment vs Ink knowledge, and the technique of linework and shading, etc.


So the question is: “Will this class make you a tattoo artist?”


The answer is: “No, you will learn how to do small tattoos with some line work and some color that fits with your Permanent Makeup Skill. You will improve your current machine skill that you learned during your PMU course. You won’t be qualified as a body art artist. To become a ture body art artist you need to apprentice under a body art Artist. During that, your supervisor will teach you his/her styles, needles, stacking, colors, light value, diffident technique, cleaning, mannerisms and much more. Tattooing apprentice is like a “disciple” program. Your tattoo master/supervisor will teach and train you his/her passion and everything!”


The question: “ What will I benefit from this class?”

The answer:” Lots of benefits from the class. Besides having thorough understanding of PMU vs Tattooing and small tattooing design, your skill will be improving from that bridging knowledge. You will understand how to work effectively like a tattoo artist can. Or as light as a PMU Artist can.. You will understand all the Why and How!”
