Our Specialty

The average permanent makeup technician in the United States makes just shy of $65,000 a year gross. A full time Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) technician can make a minimum of $100,000- $250,000 a year gross with the right mentorship. As a new artist we discourage the “booked and busy phase”, and instead focus on linear intentions. In order to double your income while working fewer hours you must employ mentorship, follow strict milestones, and wholeheartedly accept an ongoing investment which can change your life in one year. There are no other business models on earth with such a low entry barrier coupled with such high returns in its first operational year. If you are looking to change your career, or supplement your current income, then you must learn how to structure your SMP business to scale with intention. There are many trainers who offer SMP classes, but only a few have the skill set, earned income, and portfolio to actually help you grow. In 2023 Scalp Prodigy and Vanguard SMP combined training methods to restructure the SMP training essentials which include a free 3-month budget to help you focus on growth, and mimic our process, so your first year and beyond planned for execution.

Furthermore, we will continue to peer-review your work to ensure you operate at the highest efficiency going forward in your business. In time, your skill set will grow, and your business will thrive as you learn the ebb and flow of entrepreneurship.

If you chose the online option then the theory must be completed online and all homework requirements must be submitted via email before advancing to a perfection training. Post course homework will be given during class to test your skills as it pertains to pointillism. Please be sure to turn in your work after class to ensure your impressions are clean, precise, and the correct depth and gradient. Intermediate or advanced classes are available in person at our flagship facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, Silver Spring, MD, or Orlando, Florida. If you are a current artist, and your submitted work is not approved, then a mandatory 3-day course is required. The primary form of instruction will be hands-on. On site there will be limited reading requirements since the focal point of class will be based on mastering practice skin, hands on techniques rigorously repeated throughout the day to build muscle memory, and financial stability. Models will be available to build your portfolio. We want you to be successful, but it is up to you to follow the strict rules we ask you to follow for the first 3 months. Ask questions, let us know when you are stuck, and mimic our processes exactly. There is no need to reinvent the wheel since we have already done the heavy lifting.

Normally prerequisites are not required for permanent makeup courses, but we strongly advise you to take a Skin Anatomy or Photography course online to prepare you for the next step in your business. These courses will allow you to establish yourself as an educated tattoo artist and grow your social presence online. The anatomy course can be taken before, or after class to familiarize yourself with the skin and how it pertains to the cellular reaction as the ink is placed below the epidermis. The photography course will improve your skills by perfecting your portfolio online. Placement, lighting, and a consistent brand image is useful when building your empire.
