If you are enrolling in a permanent makeup course (PMU, Microblading, Lips, Liner, Scar Camo, Areola, Paramedical, SMP, or Ombre) we will apply for a temporary tattoo license to allow you to work on a live model in our facility. However, it is recommended for you to check your local requirements for licenses in the area where you plan to work. Some states do require either a cosmetology or esthetician license to do eyelash extensions.
