Cosmetic Tattoo Training with Master Judy Nguyen

Get in the eyebrow, lip & eyeliner cosmetic tattoo training with Master Judy to receive full support on your journey from day one to a skilled permanent make up technician.

Difference between microblading and cosmetic tattoo, what training should I take?

They are similar in terms of both being cosmetic methods for imperfect eyebrows, lips or eyeliners. By implanting pigment into the epidermis layer of the skin, they generate a semi permanent makeup effect that is expected to last 12-18 months. They are also alike in the treatment process and the post-treatment care.

The difference lies in the micro-pigmentation techniques used. Microblading, often used to treat faint eyebrows or no eyebrows, is a technique using hand-held micro-blades to create hair-like strokes that follow natural eyebrow hair direction. With the ability to mimic eyebrow hair, microblading skill enables technicians to create natural fuller brows and leave a lot of room for them to be creative with sophisticated eyebrow designs.

On the other hand, cosmetic tattoo often refers to the technique using tattoo machine and needle. Unlike microblading, cosmetic tattoo can be used for eyebrows, lips and eyeliners. Imagine waking up everyday with these already in the make-up look, just like you’ve been penciling in your brows, drawing your lash-lines and putting lipstick on for hours. That’s what cosmetic tattoo can do, a make-up look that lasts.

As a technician or salon owner, understanding what each technique would bring, you can figure out which one is currently in demand by your customers. Your own interest should also be taken into account. Apparently it’s truly handy to have both in hands to expand the service area and be able to deal with every request. At VNZ International Nail & Beauty School, we offer the cosmetic tattoo training and microblading training in different levels. This article is about the basic training in eyebrows, lips and eyeliners as a combination course, with Master Judy, one of the best trainers in New Zealand.
