As the industry grows, more and more trainers will pop up and offer a training course to learn how to camouflage tattoo stretch marks and scars, and it will get harder to discern who and where to learn from.
Busting the Myth About Brazilian Stretch Mark and Scar Camouflage Tattoo Training
It’s come to my attention that some educators are claiming that they’re the only ones offering “legalized” training for this service, which is inaccurate.
Tattooing, whether you call it “camouflage tattooing, medical tattooing, or even permanent make-up,” is not federally regulated by law in the United States. However, all 50 states do have some sort of statutory laws requiring a person receiving a tattoo to be at least 18 years old.
A quick look through your state’s laws and you’ll see that tattooing requires very little licensing or experience. There’s no universal standard of consistency.
Literally, anyone can become a tattoo artist and while that’s great for inclusivity, unskilled and inexperienced artists can do more harm than good.
As for the “Brazilian stretch mark and scar camouflage training,” it’s simply a marketing brand to differentiate the type of niche and service that we offer. It is not trademarked and so to claim legal ownership or right to train in it, is simply a lie.
Please don’t let “educators” steer you the wrong way by fear. A simple Google search can verify what you need to know.
How to Choose the Best Scar/Stretch Mark Tattoo Training: Check Online Reviews
When you want to undergo Brazilian Stretch Mark and Scar Camouflage Tattoo training, you want to make sure that you learn only from the best. You want to spend your hard-earned money on training from a tattoo artist that has obtained the best results for her clients.
In conclusion, please do your due diligence when seeking out a trainer. Make sure they have a vast portfolio as this service is much more technical than it looks online, positive, online reviews, an established business, and standard of professionalism.
This is all pretty easy to verify online, or with a simple phone call. Ideally, you want to make sure your trainer has experience working on compromised skin and that they’re not “stealing” other people’s work and claiming it as their own, or lying claiming they are the only ones legally allowed to train in this growing niche – that’s where the integrity and standard of professionalism come in.
