SENIOR PRO TEAM PMU & SMP ARTIST, LEAD TRAINER, FOUNDER

Early in my career of professional makeup, aesthetics, and cosmetic tattooing I decided to solely focus on cosmetic tattooing because I really found it rewarding seeing my clients gain their confidence back after I treated them.  This led me to found Dermagrafix in 2003. I also realized that this was a very specialized field, and there were not many cosmetic tattoo artists available and at a highly trained level.  It was obvious to me I needed to create a platinum standard for clients to rely on, in my business as well as my industry. This platinum standard has been the foundation of the Dermagrafix brand. Whether I am treating clients or training other artists, this elevated level of professionalism has resulted in my business becoming internationally recognized. Welcome to Dermagrafix; A premiere Cosmetic Tattoo Studio and Training Center.

Always leading the way in training, techniques, and collaborating with industry manufacturers to innovate and improve…  After performing 25k+ cosmetic tattoo procedures, I have logged enough experience to develop my own techniques and products.  I have perfected the ever-popular Bi-Fusion Eyebrows® and WhipLash Eyeliner® techniques, after years of practice.  I am also in the process of collaborating on a new Scalp Micropigmentation line of pigments… coming soon!!!

Ian krueger

SMP Practitioner

From an early age I have been interested by the patterns that occur in art. Driven by my creative side, I have always pursued interests that allowed me to express myself, like learning to play an instrument, sketching, painting, and enrolling in art classes. 

As I was naturally attracted to activities in the arts, I pursued those interests further when I attended Moore College of Art and Design, in Philadelphia. While I was focused on a career in special effects makeup or graphic design, I redirected my artistic skills to constructing home living spaces.  In 2001, I started a remodeling company that focused on high-end design for kitchens and bathrooms in luxury homes.  The commercial build-out for the studio space at Dermagrafix is one example of my work.

As Valerie’s husband, I have naturally been exposed to the permanent cosmetics industry and have been deeply invested in her business. Intrigued by the art of Scalp Micropigmentation, I decided to join the Dermagrafix team in May 2017.  I trained at the prestigious Brandwood Clinic in the U.K. and with Joe Taylor of Scalp Logic, who is one of the world’s most experienced SMP providers. I have also trained under my wife, Valerie, a highly accredited educator in the permanent cosmetics industry.  I have a natural eye for symmetry and am very detail oriented – both are key skills for the specialized areas of SMP and Tricopigmentation. My strong drive for excellence and ability to bond with my clients in order to fully understand their needs are sure to provide quality results for the clients of Dermagrafix.
