school or agency. Most qualified Permanent Makeup Artists have certificates on the wall or on display at the clients request that show their experience and training. Most artists have several certificates from different training sessions they have attended.
DON’T buy cheap vouchers from online dealsites. Buy cheap, get cheap. You may save a bundle of money buying an online voucher today; however, you may pay a lot more later to have someone else fix the problems caused by that cheap voucher. Permanent makeup artists take pride in their work and usually will not lower their standards to publicize their services on cheap deal sites. An artist that has a sale or promo is much different than 50-70% using a dealsite.
DO ensure that you view the premises or office of the permanent makeup artist. You may want to pass by and visit the office of the artist that you are thinking of doing your treatment to ensure that it is a clean and safe location and not in an alley or back of run down building. If the artist and the office is kept tidy and clean, most likely the artist keeps their utensils, equipment sanitized and has high hygiene standards.
DON’T settle. If you have a bad feeling about the office, or the permanent makeup artist, than leave. You must be comfortable in the office and with the person that is about to use a blade or sharp needle to instil permanent pigment into your skin. If you are not comfortable, or have a bad feeling, than it is your right to stand up and leave.

If you do not have that feeling, than either you are not ready for permanent makeup or you do not trust your artist. It is better to get a second opinion than to settle on one artist.
DO get a consultation with the permanent makeup artist first. We cannot stress this enough. It is imperative that you get a consultation with the artist first in order to determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment, but also it gives you a chance to ask a variety of questions that you may have. How the artist answers those questions usually builds trust and confidence between the client and the artist. Again, if you are not comfortable with the answers you received, than shop around.
