Question - what board "certifies" a makeup artist? - do you mean for tatting or is there something for people performing "permanent" makeup?
Ros C. asked on Jan 8, 2013
There are two independent, non-profit Micropigmentation Professional Organizations - 1 is the Society for Permanent Cosmetic Professionals and the other is the American Academy of Micropigmentation. Each one has their own qualifications, requirements and specialized testing that must be fulfilled in order to earn a certification. I am proud to say that I am Board Certified and am a Fellow of the American Academy of Micropigmentation and earned this certification in 2002 by meeting all requirments by this Board. This is a national board certification, not a State certification. Permanent Cosmetics is a seperate specialty within the field of tattooing and requires specialized training. Thanks for your interest & I hope this answered your question. Kim
