Whether you’re a veteran beauty professional looking to switch it up or a newbie in the beauty biz, microblading is a career you should consider entering.

Here’s why.

The top three reasons to become a microblading artist

Permanent makeup is a growing industry, one that’s not as established as the traditional makeup and cosmetic surgery industries. What does this mean for potential microblading artists?

An expanding industry has plenty of room for newcomers—you don’t have to bend over backward just to make a name for yourself. There’s a high demand (but a low supply!) of artists, making it an ideal market to break into.

The challenge, however, is to keep spreading the word about microblading. For every permanent makeup enthusiast, there is are several more who haven’t yet heard of microblading. That’s why it’s important to enroll in a microblading training school that also teaches you to properly market your services.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. First, let’s look at why becoming a microblading artist is a wise career move.

1. You get to earn a better living.

And not just because of the supply and demand situation. Microblading simply pays more than other beauty services like hairdressing and nail services.

Check out this computation of how much you can earn as a microblading artist compared to other beauty professionals.

Service 1 procedure per week 2 procedures per week 3 procedures per week 4 procedures per week 10 procedures per week
$500 $1,000 $1,500 $2,000 $5,000
Full lip
$750 $1,500 $2,250 $3,000 $7,500
$500 $1,000 $1,500 $2,000 $5,000
Total $1,750 $3,500 $5,250 $7,000 $17,000
Annual $91,000 $182,000 $273,000 $364,000 $884,000

While prices vary from one location to another, microblading is generally more expensive than other beauty services.

2. You can make a real difference in a person’s life.

Microblading is not just about looking good—it’s about feeling good. In fact, microblading is an option taken by many survivors of alopecia (hair loss) and breast cancer survivors. Trained permanent makeup artists can perform scalp and eyebrow microblading, as well as areola reconstruction, for those who need it.

Even a simple eyebrow microblading session can help boost a person’s self-confidence or placate their anxiety. Becoming a microblading artist isn’t just financially rewarding—it’s also emotionally fulfilling.

3. You’ll be part of a fun, robust community.

There aren’t very many microblading artists in any one area. So, those in the same clinics (or in different ones!) often have strong bonds and warm friendships. After all, we need to stick together. There’s no need for competition when the demand for microblading is so high.

Enrolling in a proper microblading training school is a guarantee that you’ll meet industry experts and incoming artists such as yourself. You’ll be part of your own great community in no time.
