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.

How much can you earn from this treatment?

Treatment costs vary as it depends on the number of areas, the size of the areas, and the complexity of scars / stretch marks.  The table below gives you an average per customer paying £300 per session for a 1.5-2 hour timeslot.

Number of clients per day

income per day

income per week (based on 5 day week)

income per month (based on 5 day week)

income per year (based on 5 day week)
















Note that how much you charge will vary from £300 and this is just a moderate example given.  For example you may have a minimum charge like we do of £180 for a small scar tattoo coverup which may take you 30-40 minutes.  On the other hand, if someone is having multiple areas treated on the same visit, you will be charging them £600-£700 on one visit, which takes 4 hours more or less.  As you can see, it is a very profitable treatment.

International Students – get trained online

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.  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 (modules 1 and 2b), 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 the online pathway is not available for training academies or trainers due to previous copyright issues.  Therefore if you are a trainer, this course is not accessible to you via the online pathway.  However, we can colloborate with training academies and will travel internationally to hold classes.

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.

CPD Accredited Training Course

This training course is CPD accredited in the UK.  Please note CPD accreditation is also recogonised world-wide.


You can order a package of materials to include everything you need to get started with scar camouflage tattooing.  This includes the machine, inks etc.  This is priced at £1250 – if collecting on classroom training days, must be ordered 3 weeks prior to attending.  If you have a machine already, we can prepare everything else for you – please ask. A full materials list is available on the training course at which point students can decide if they wish to purchase all materials separately themselves, or order a whole kit from us.

Inks and REACH EU legislation changes

From January 4th 2022, many inks will be unavailable to buy in the EU due to new legislation under REACH on inks containing certain ingredients.  These are the same ingredients which have been used on millions of clients worldwide for decades.  The UK doesn’t have to comply with this law as we are no longer in the EU.  However, if you are based in the EU, please bear in mind that you will have some restrictions on inks you can buy in your country.  Ink Illusions will continue to teach how to mix skin tone colours using the inks we have traditionally used, and the same as used internationally outside the EU.  As manufacturers release new ink colours for the EU market, we will update our colour mixing charts accordingly and supply a different set of inks for EU students.  You can stay in touch after the course for updates on this. Ink Illusions teaches you the fundamentals so you are not tied to a particular brand or exact colour from a manufacturer, so you can use that knowledge and mix a range of skin tones from any inks you wish.

Would you like to book on our course?
