Any professional artist will insist on having a microblading consent form signed by clients before the procedure, but unless you’ve already had some permanent makeup or tattoos, you’re probably not familiar with this document.

Please Note: Although microblading is a relatively non-invasive procedure and the risk of something going wrong is minimal, it’s a good idea to list someone who knows about your appointment and is available and willing to show up if needed as an emergency contact.

You must also confirm that you’re over the age of 18, and that you’re not currently pregnant or breastfeeding.

The second part should state that:

  • You’ve been made aware of the nature and risks of the procedure
  • You’ve disclosed all relevant information that may affect the final result and that you take full responsibility should the procedure fail in any way
  • You’ve been informed about the pre- and post-care instructions and that you agree to follow them
  • You release the technician from liability should anything go wrong or you’re unsatisfied with the results.

Please note that this is just a general outline. Some salons may include additional information, or ask you to fill out and sign additional forms.

As an alternative to the good old paper form, some salons have digital consent forms they send their clients beforehand, so that no time is wasted once you show up for your appointment.

Other Forms You May Be Asked to Sign

Recent Medical History

Filling out a recent medical history questionnaire or checklist is crucial for staying safe and healthy during and after a microblading procedure. Your artist has to know:
  • if you suffer from any illness or condition at the time of the procedure,
  • if you’re prone to allergic reactions,
  • if you’re taking any medication or supplements,
  • if you’ve recently undergone other treatments that may interfere with the results of PMU, as well as some other facts before they can assess whether it’s safe for you to get microblading and whether the treatment will be successful.

Patch Test Consent

Some salons also insist on the client signing a color patch test for a permanent makeup consent form, which absolves them from liability should you get an allergic reaction as a result of the patch test.

Don’t worry, allergic reactions to a patch test are very mild and they have a very important role – preventing a severe reaction once pigments are injected into the skin.

Photography (and Videography) Release Consent

Many artists like to post pictures of their work on social media, so they may ask you to sign a photography release consent – a short form stating that you allow them to use your before & after photos and post them online.

In case you object to this and your artist tries to take your pictures without asking you to sign a form, make sure you let them know they’re not allowed to post your pics or use them in any way.
