Challenges of corrective work...
Permanent cosmetics is a highly technical art form and its intricacies cannot be overstated. Choose
your provider carefully. You are about to let someone "tattoo" your face permanently. It is always heartbreaking
when I get women with less than desirable outcomes from their permanent makeup.

There has been a tremendous

The field of permanent cosmetics is not a regulated industry
in the State of Arizona. There are many providers offering
this service that are not credentialed. As per the HB
2666-441-H, it is unlawful for a person to engage in the
business of tattooing out of a home. Make sure you research your
provider. The two national organizations offering certifications
are the American Academy of Micropigmentation (A.A.M.) and the
Society of Permanent Makeup Professionals (S.P.C.P.). In order
to keep their credentials, providers must obtain a certain
amount of continuing education credits every year.
