If you are looking to get into the permanent make up business I highly recommend you take a course with Gina at Chicago Academy of Permanent Makeup. Gina is very patient and thorough. She answered all my questions and concerns. I love her teaching style. I really learned a lot. Gina is very down to earth and has an amazing spirit. This is an amazing academy. I wish I had found it sooner!!

I found Gina very last minute when I was hoping to learn 3d nipple tattoo/areola restoration to bring back to breast reconstruction patients at the institution I work for in Detroit. She was so patient when I had a ton of questions even before registering for her course. She is so good at teaching things simply and is so passionate about what she does. So much so that she wants you to stay in contact with her even after the course ends to ensure the best care for your patients/clients. I would definitely recommend Gina if you’re looking for a 3d nipple tattoo or PMU course!

I just completed the 5 day microblade & shade, nano brow and eyeliner certification. I had originally planned to take a 2/3 day microblading course from a traveling instructor. I’m so glad it didn’t work out and that I learned about this class taught by Gina. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in what she does but she really cares about her students and their future in the industry. Knowing that I have her continued support as a mentor is so reassuring as I continue to push myself forward! If you are considering a microblading certification, I highly encourage you to also learn shading and eyeliner!! Thank you for everything, Gina!!! ❤️

If you are looking for a PMU course that has in depth training, quality training kit, the ability to practice on multiple live models and is not only a 2-3 day course, GO HERE! Gina is awesome, the facility is beautiful and she is so supportive.

Highly recommended 👍. So glad that I chose this course!!! I did a 2 day course for microblading and Shading. Gina was patient with me and if I was ever confused she was sure to answer my questions explaining it further. I really loved the education format of the program. It gets pretty discouraging but it seemed like every time I was feeling like giving up Gina was there to push me to keep going. Thank you again Gina, for your patience, motivation & kindness .
