Not very long ago, I was in the makeup section of my local drugstore, when I made a giant career decision, to go into permanent makeup cosmetics. I came to this decision when I heard some of the other women in the makeup aisle talking about what a headache it was to constantly be shopping for new makeup and spending money on it all the time. When I heard this, the thought came to me that I ought to expand the tattoo business that I owned and have it include permanent makeup for anyone who is annoyed with spending time in the makeup aisle.
Now, I knew that this would take some doing, and I would need to purchase some equipment like the makeup machines and numbing cream to make the procedures less painful. I wasn’t completely sure how to go about this however, as there are a lot of different brands out there with big differences in quality, and I really wanted to get the best.
So, I hopped online and located some really amazing makeup made by Bio Touch, a company that I had heard a lot of good things about through the tattoo artist grapevine. After a while I found a website that sold these products at a good price and I made my order, feeling a surge of excitement as I thought about how much my business was going to increase after I started doing permanent makeup treatment. Then I spent some time learning about how to use the equipment and how to perform the procedures, so that after a while, I felt completely ready to do whatever my clients wanted.
Before I knew it, my permanent makeup supplies came, and I eagerly got it all set up in my little shop so that I could establish this part of my business. I did a lot of advertising, but mainly spread the news by word of mouth, and before long, I was getting quite a few customers who wanted to say goodbye to the makeup aisle and get the tattoos done. The cosmetic machine was every bit as good as I had hoped, and all of my customers walked away feeling pleased with the job I had done for them.
As part of the business of a tattoo artist, there are a lot of supplies that have to be replaced frequently, such as tattoo needles. After a little while, I also found that I was running out of topical anesthetic, as I was using it more and more as my business grew. But now I did not have to worry about where I ought to order my supplies, as I knew that I would get them all from the same place that I had bought my fantastic equipment!
