Welcome to a truly one of a kind Cosmetic Tattoo Academy

Here at Sculpted, we do things differently! We strongly believe that students should not only have a substantial understanding of the fundamentals and the techniques they will be performing but also need to comprehend the “why” so that they can make critical decisions as artists. If a client comes to you and requests hair stroke brows but isn’t a perfect candidate, we want you to know why and how to be able to explain that to your client and offer an alternative.

Being able to think critically is what creates a well-rounded and capable artist.

It is very typical for training to teach students just to emulate their trainer, but how does that make you an artist?
As an artist, you must constantly adapt to the client you have in front of you. If you only know one way to do things, it is only a matter of time before you find yourself frustrated with the work and your results. You want to be able to offer your clients a variety of techniques to make you stand out from the rest. 

Your training with Sculpted in New York and Miami ensures you will obtain a working and practical knowledge not found anywhere else. The hands-on experience and continued support will prepare you to work on any client with advanced execution and skill.
We like to think of our permanent makeup and scalp micropigmentation training courses as more than just training but mentorship as well. Once you become a student, you become part of the Sculpted family. That means ongoing support for the life of your career.
