How to become a Microblading Artist


Big, bold brows are a trend that’s here to stay and the growing popularity is putting Microblading artists in high demand. High demand means high value, and if you can hold a pen, you can capitalize on this lucrative opportunity. The beauty industry is a thriving and ever-changing industry valued at over $121 Billion. One of the newest and fastest growing services in the industry is Microblading.


Microblading is a manual method of implanting pigment in hair-like strokes in the skin to create the look of fuller brows using a sharp tool. Unlike traditional eyebrow tattoos which saturate the entire brow with ink, microblading artists “carve” crisp, hair-like strokes into the skin using pigments.  The results are fuller, natural looking brows that last for years!



The benefits of a career in Microblading are numerous. You do not need to be an aesthetician or cosmetologist to become a PMU Artist. Becoming a licensed Permanent Makeup Artist will allow you to expand your menu of services which are covered under your license and grant you the liberty of working for yourself with very minimal overhead. Furthermore, the cost to become trained, licensed and start your business, is a fraction of the tuition for aesthetics or cosmetology; yet it yields much higher revenue.

Let’s take a look at some numbers.

The most important step is finding a credible microblading course.  The course should be taught by an educator who has years of experience in in the industry and is in good standing with the applicable health departments in their governing region. It is important for the course to cover safety and sanitation procedures, color theory, medical contraindications and the science of the skin in addition to Microblading trade & theory . Lastly, it is important to entrust your training in an academy that provides ongoing support and continuing education. Our course provides thorough instruction in all aspects and offers the continuing education needed to perfect technique and expand your skillset.

The Southern Nevada Health Department requires a six (6) month apprenticeship to obtain a license to perform body art. This means once you take your Microblading course and earn your certificate, you can only microblade at a licensed establishment under the supervision of your mentor (usually the course educator).  Once your 6-month apprenticeship has been completed, your mentor will sign off on your paperwork and you will be licensed to perform microblading on your own.  Our course offers the apprenticeship so our students can meet the legal requirements and confidently move forward in their careers.

Check with your local governing health department to see what their requirements are.
