Brazilian Stretch Mark & Scar Camouflage Tattooing Training

Online & Classroom training

Our scar and stretch mark micropigmentation training is now online!

Ink Illusions is the UK’s only scar camouflage tattoo micropigmentation training course that teaches the Brazilian Stretch Mark tattoo camouflage technique, as well as comparing to traditional scar & vitiligo micropigmentation techniques.  It also explains the basics of MCA dry-needling and microneedling, together with colour theory and colour mixing / matching.

The Course

Ink Illusions have created an online portal to give students access to the theoretical learning prior to attending 2 classroom days.

The online module allows you to work in your own time and at your own pace, from any location you want. 

You will gain an in-depth understanding of theory from various topics such as Anatomy & Physiology, Health and Safety, Colour Theory, Organic vs Inorganic Inks, Colour Matching & Mixing, Required Materials (and where to buy), Shading Techniques, a full session walk-through, Managing Client Expectations and much more.  You will also get a full set of medical history and consent forms to use.

The lessons have text, photos, illustrations, videos and assessment to keep the content engaging.  The course is split in to lessons and topics so you can complete step by step, take breaks and resume where you left off.

If you are not based in the UK and are not able to attend Module 2 classroom days, it is possible for you to complete the online training course Module 1 only.  In replacement of Module 2 you will receive further videos explaining how to mix your colour match charts (Module 2b), and further explanations on adjusting colours using colour theory, on a model.  Included are also further mixing charts for Eternal and World Famous, as well as case study ink recipes.  You would need to purchase the inks in advance to be able to follow the instructions for mixing your colour charts on Module 2b.  You can order the inks from Ink Illusions, or source these yourself in your own country if you wish.  All inks and materials are explained on the online course.

Please note:  If you complete the online training, you will receive a Certificate Of Completion.  If you can make it to the UK for training in person, it is much more beneficial as our teacher can guide you better with your techniques and checking your pressure on a live model, checking your skin tone matching is correct for lives models, and making sure you understand everything.

Please also note that Module 2b is not available for training academies or trainers.  Therefore if you are a trainer, this course is not accessible to you via the online pathway.

You also have the option at the end of Module 2b to upgrade to Zoom / Skype one-to-one additional support with one of our trainers, to help you with a model and to ask questions / recap on the important theory points.
