Oregon is one of, if not THE strictest in their training requirements for cosmetic and artistic tattoo technicians. There are strict requirements for training, which is actually outlined in the rules and must be followed by all schools. It requires all schools to teach 210 hours of theory and practice before allowing students to work on the public. Then they must complete 160 hours of supervised hands on training on live models including at least 50 completed procedures.
After this they must take a state administered exam to get their certificate that allows them to work. But it doesn’t stop here. They are required to take 10 hours of continuing education every year PLUS they must keep up annual training in blood borne pathogens and maintain their First Aid, CPR/AED certifications.
Judith maintains all of this including attending national or international conferences 3-5 days per year to stay up with current industry changes and modifications. This allows her to bring the very best experiences to her clients both in Portland at Red Lotus Skin Care and at her clinic in Eugene, Esthetics NW.
