This removal course is for certified Laser Tattoo Removal technicians (1+ years experience) who are new to non-laser removal and using a tattoo machine. You’ll need to upload a photo of your training certificate, if you have any problems with this, let us know

Eyebrow tattoo removal is complex, due to the different pigment types, colours and carrier fluids, iron oxide, organic or hybrids. And then we have multiple top-ups and colour corrections over the years, plus any scarring from multiple or harsh treatments

Historically, non-laser removal has been used for eyebrow tattoo removal, however in the past few years, more laser techs are working on eyebrow tattoos. With little specialist training available about eyebrow tattoo pigments, results aren't always what they could be

Non-Laser Tattoo Removal Training for Laser Techs

Botched Ink® is our unique saline removal solution

We have different courses available, based on your existing experience as a permanent makeup or microblading artist

During this course, we're also teaching you how to use a tattoo machine, not just removal. This includes working with sharps and blood 

Botched Ink techs charge £75 to £175 per treatment, which is about 45 mins, plus numbing cream time and consultation

    🧡 Check if you need licensing for non-laser tattoo removal with a tattoo machine, and do the Council Bylaws require you to have a sink in the treatment room

    Existing Training: This course is available to technicians already certified in Laser Tattoo Removal, with a minimum of one years experience

    Removal Trainers: We do not offer any removal training, or supply Botched Ink® serum to removal trainers, or techs working for training companies offering removal. This is a conflict of interest. We do not permit trainers to promote, use or recommend Botched Ink® on their own saline tattoo removal training course. This would be trademark infringement and a conflict of interest, read the Trademarks tab

    Body Tattoos, Eyeliner, Lip Tattoos, Camouflage or Areola: Botched Ink® is not approved for use on these areas or camouflage pigment. Botched Ink® is an advanced removal serum, and what makes it so wonderful for eyebrows, lip liner, freckles and small areas of scalp micropigmentation, make it too risky or dangerous for other areas

    Home Study: If the required online home study has not been completed at least 2 days before the booked model class (day 2), we reserve the right to not allow you to work on models, which means training cannot be completed. You would still attend the booked model class, and instead complete 3 case studies in your own time

    Model Class: 99.8% of students who work on models during the live class, complete training to our satisfaction and will be certified. However certification is not automatic

    Certification: We offer a Certificate of Achievement for Saline Tattoo Removal using Botched Ink®

    Your Responsibilities

    As an official Botched Ink® tech, we're in this together. Botched Ink® is a brand you represent, not just another product in the drawer!

    It's vital you stay up-to-date with our treatment advice and recommendations. Engaging with our communications helps ensure successful and safe treatments, enabling clients to have easy healing and the best results. We keep you updated via email, our Official Tech Resources, and our Botched Ink® tech Facebook group

    Free for Official Botched Ink® Techs

    • Private Facebook group for Official techs
    • Email updates and news

    There might be instances where we need to part ways with a technician. This could happen if a technician starts their own saline tattoo removal training, or if their practices don't align with our safety standards or brand reputation. In such cases, they can continue offering saline tattoo removal, just not with our serum or using the Botched Ink® brand or trademarks

    When it comes to the Botched Ink® Find a Tech map on our website, inclusion isn't guaranteed. We feature active technicians who likely have in-date Botched Ink® available (training or purchasing from us within the last 2 years). If a tech doesn’t have their own business website or social media page, showing them as a named PMU, microblading or laser tech, we reserve the right to not list

    Lastly, it's important to make sure you're allowed to offer saline tattoo removal or lightening services in your area and that your insurance company recognises Botched Ink® training

    Being clear and transparent from the start, shows our commitment to the support and guidance we offer Botched Ink® techs, and care for the clients who visit them

    Cancellation Policy: If you're unable to attend the booked dates, you may transfer, by prior notice and agreement, your place to another advertised date. If there is any remaining balance due for your training, this needs to be paid before we can transfer the date
