Cosmetic Tattoo Fundamental Machine Class $7500 / 100 Hours (7 classroom days)

This program meets the standards of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP) and the American Academy of Micropigmentation (AAM), which is imperative for licensing in some states – with initial training for eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip blushing!  Our Fundamental Class is well-rounded, information-packed, hands-on foundational class designed for beginners wanting to enter the field of cosmetic tattooing, or for those who want to add to their body art or microblading background. Rather than provide a general overview of cosmetic tattooing, we train our students in-depth over a longer period of time teaching core basics essential to their future growth. Our curriculum dissects techniques and strategies for proper planning and encourages critical thinking.  Students are presented with topics to troubleshoot and analyze multiple aspects of the process for a deeper and methodical understanding.

Phase I– $2000- Pre-class study accounts for 39 of your training hours. You will want to read your text book and complete your coordinating workbook to prepare for class. You will also be required to complete an OSHA BBP class (we will send the link) prior to you attending class.

Phase II– $2500 + $1500 LUMI machine kit = $4000- During classroom theory hours, the class will dive into color theory, skin types, candidacy, contraindications and medical clearances, needle and machine theory, client management, documentation, consultations, and safe use of anesthetics. Students will apply their pre-class study and theory training to the next phase we refer to as the hands-on training. In this phase, students will perform a variety of techniques on vegan practice pads and or mannequin heads to strengthen hand-eye coordination skills, machine control, and consistency. Students will interact with one another to carry out drawing exercises and stretching techniques prior to practicing on a live model.

Phase III– $3000 – The final phase of training for students who are ready is to work on live models under direct supervision of their instructor and in an actual treatment room. Students will practice safety protocols and complete their own treatment set up and breakdowns as well as tattoo their own models. While up to six students may be present in any fundamental class only one student will tattoo at a time, per instructor or instructor assistant. A written test is performed at the end of class. Students must pass the written portion of training with an 80%. or higher.

Inclusions: Students will be given home study class materials once enrolled including: textbook, workbook, and OSHA BBP class link (cost not included). (Proof of BBP training [certificate] must be provided prior to in-person portion of class.) Machine (if purchasing)*, class kit, and course manual are included and will be provided to students upon arrival to in-person class. A certificate of completion is awarded to those who complete the course successfully. If additional hours are required to meet performance these hours are not included.

*Upgraded LUMI digital machine + $1500.
