Georgia Legalizes Microblading! 🙌
News | MLA Staff
Good news for Georgia salon, tattoo shop, and med spa owners interested in learning Microblading! Effective July 1, microblading was made legal in Georgia. According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, microblading will be regulated under the rules of local county boards of health that regulate body art (tattoo) studios and artists.
This is great news for the microblading industry! If you know the history of microblading, then you know it's a relatively new phenomenon in the United States, first taking off in the U.S. around 2016. So local laws and regulations are catching up with the trend.
Now, the 10.43 million citizens of Georgia can have beautiful, natural eyebrows. This is a huge opportunity for microblading artists in the area!
Prior to this new law, the procedure was considered a misdemeanor in Georgia (!!!) because tattoos within one inch of the eye were prohibited. This hasn't necessarily stopped many studios from offering microblading anyway, but it's a big step to see the regulations reflect the trend.
Now, the 10.43 million citizens of Georgia can have beautiful, natural eyebrows. This is a huge opportunity for local microblading artists!
Microblading is what we call a "cosmetic tattoo," where the artist implants pigment in the upper area of the dermis to simulate the look of a beautiful, natural eyebrow. But in fact, all forms of permanent makeup in the eyebrow and eyeliner area were prohibited under this law.
We are looking into how this affects other permanent makeup techniques. In the meantime, you can call your local county department yourself.
