What to look for when choosing the right permanent makeup specialist.

Just like choosing a doctor or a plastic surgeon, you never want to make decisions that will affect your life based on cost or convenience,  but rather on experience, education, skill and professionalism. Some important questions to base your decision upon follow but first and foremost...

Be careful! - Many "new artists" have entered the field of and use professional websites and clever internet marketing to get your attention and gain your business. Reviews are important but trust experience and referrals first and consider these questions...

  • Are they board certified?
  • Are they experienced - how long?
  • Are they insured by a professional organization?
  • Are they members of the Society of Permanent Makeup Professionals (SPCP)?
  • Do they do correction work?
  • Do they have a medical background? (not necessary, but very useful to understand the technical stuff!)\
  • Do they have an occupational license and can they show it?
  • Do they have a Biomedical Waste Permit and can they prove it?
  • Do they require using a antiviral prescription for lip procedures on clients with a background of cold sores?
  • Do they have a supervising physician? (Used to be required by law!)
  • Are they routinely inspected by the Florida Department of Health?
