Licensing & Regulations By State For Microblading and Permanent Makeup
Permanent Makeup and any kind of esthetics procedure should be researched before purchasing. One of the most important phrases to research when thinking of purchasing a training in the esthetics industry is 'what are the licensing requirements and regulations for my state'.
The more you know the better you'll be prepared.
Each state is unique with their licensing requirements and the regulations they have in place for permanent makeup procedures. When it comes to permanent makeup and Microblading, each state will have different rules for you. Some states have little to no regulation, while others have a list of items you need to complete to become fully state licensed in Microblading or Permanent Makeup.
To help you understand what the Permanent Makeup State Regulations and the Permanent Makeup State Licensing requirements are by state, we did our best to create list of every state and a link to their Cosmetic Tattooing, Permanent Makeup, Microblading licensing and regulations landing pages.
State Licensing and State Regulations:
It can be a little confusing, so we went ahead and came up with three degrees of regulations and licensing in each state:
- no regulations to low: These states do not regulation permanent makeup, or have you complete a 200 hour or less training or just proof of a completed training
- some regulations: these states require you to complete 100 or more hours of training, or apply for licensing through the state, or take first aid trainings
- high regulations: any state requiring a cosmology license, more than 200 hours, complete additional licensing, or require apprenticeship
(Our permanent makeup certification courses can help you prove the hours your need and they also help with insurance)
