Missouri does NOT regulate microblading procedures or training requirements.

Microblading, also known by a variety of names such as eyebrow embroidery, 3D eyebrow, microstroking, feather touch and hair like strokes, is a form of semi-permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments.  Microblading is a tattoo, regardless of what you've heard.

It is manually inserted with a handle and single use sterile pins, not a tattoo gun. Two treatments are required for full results and last around 12-18 months before repeating the procedure.

 

Missouri does not regulate microblading. There are no licensing, certification, or establishment requirements in Missouri, unlike what you will find in many other states.  This is why those of us living in or around Springfield, MO need to do their research on the microblading artist they choose do their procedure: Who did they train under? How many hours did they undergo? Are they insured? Can you see a portfolio of their work? Do they have good reviews?

 

These are all questions you need to find the answers to or ask about before you book your appointment so that you can ensure you're in good hands since we live in a state that does not ensure this first.
