Questions you should ask before hiring a Permanent Cosmetic Technician

  • How long have they been in business?
  • Do they have a portfolio of “Before and After” pictures of their clients you can look at?
  • What is their “touch-up” policy? (Should be one included in the price after the first month) What do they charge after that?
  • Are they a member of the SPCP (Society of Permanent Cosmetics Professionals) or the AAM (Amereican Academy of Micropigmentation) or a National Tattoo Organization?
  • Do they have References and phone numbers of recent clients for you to contact?
  • Can you come in for a Free Consultation? (Go in and check out their workplace. Get a good feel for this person who may be permanently marking on your face! Things to look for: Pre-packaged steralized dispoisable needles; germicidal soap; needle sharpie container; disposible gloves; barrier film on everything they will be touching)
  • Last Question. Price! You should not be shopping for a bargain! This is your face!! The going rate for an Experienced Technician in the Boise Valley and surrounding areas is between $250 to $400 per procedure. Lip Liner and Full Lips starting at $600 for both. Can’t say it enough, “You get what you pay for”.
