Permanent Makeup is exciting, yet holds many mysteries to potential clients. In Michigan, in order to practice tattooing of any sort, there are not laws in place that ensure that all technicians and artists are trained professionals. Because of this, we have all heard (& seen!) some interesting permanent makeup.
The good news is, there is a dignified organization in place that hold technicians to high standards. The SPCP, Society of Permanent Cosmetic Prodessionals, will grant membership to any technician upon confirmation of their certified training. This can be at an accredited school or as an apprenticeship.
This isn't to say that there are not technicians out there that are amazing at what they do, regardless of their credentials, but it is one good thing to look for & ask questions about when you are looking for the right technician for you!
