Scar Camouflage Artist & Trainer

Scar camouflage tattoo, also known as paramedical or medical tattooing, is a specialized technique designed to conceal and minimize the appearance of scars. What makes scar camouflage tattoo unique and beneficial is its ability to create a natural-looking result by blending the pigments with the surrounding skin tones.

My comprehensive program offers training in various scar camouflage techniques for effectively camouflaging stretch marks, facial scars, body scars, surgical scars, scars from accidents and injuries, as well as scars from breast surgeries. We will also cover advanced color theory and how to approach and effectively camouflage discolored scars, along with inkless stretch mark and scar treatments. 

Whether we are addressing stretch marks, facial and body surgery scars, or scars from breast procedures, this training covers a wide range of techniques to ensure you can meet the unique needs of each individual.

Join us at DAELA Cosmetic Tattoo Scar & Stretch Mark Camouflage Training and unlock the expertise required to excel in this growing paramedical tattoo field.

What is special about Scar Camouflage Tattoo?

Here are some aspects that make scar camouflage tattoo special:

  1. Customized Approach: Scar camouflage tattooing takes into account the specific characteristics of each scar, such as its color, texture, and location. The procedure is tailored to match the client’s natural skin tone, ensuring a personalized and seamless outcome.

  2. Enhanced Appearance: By skillfully applying pigment to the scarred area, a trained professional can help minimize the visibility of scars, making them less noticeable and promoting a more even skin tone. This can significantly boost the individual’s self-confidence and improve their overall appearance.

  3. Versatility: Scar camouflage tattooing can be applied to various types of scars, including those resulting from surgeries, injuries, burns, stretch marks, and reconstructive procedures. It is suitable for scars on different body parts, including the face, body, and breasts.

  4. Non-Surgical Solution: Unlike invasive treatments, scar camouflage tattooing is a non-surgical option for scar concealment. It avoids the risks associated with surgeries and allows individuals to achieve desired results without going under the knife.

  5. Long-lasting Results: When performed by a skilled and experienced professional, scar camouflage tattooing can provide long-lasting results. The pigments used are specifically formulated to be fade-resistant, ensuring the tattoo maintains its appearance over time.

  6. Restored Confidence: Scar camouflage tattooing can have a profound impact on individuals who may feel self-conscious about their scars. By effectively blending and camouflaging scars, this technique can help restore self-esteem and allow people to feel more comfortable and confident in their own skin.

Training FAQs

We purposefully keep our class sizes to 6 or fewer students. This ensures quality one-on-one time with the instructor as well as develop relationships with your peers. You will also have quality time with your instructor while working on a live model. Working directly with the master artist is the key to a successful technique and training.

Tattoo licenses are required to work in most states. If you are not currently licensed in your state, please become familiar with your state guidelines, you can’t work on clients in your state without obtaining required state licensing. We do not license for tattoo in any state.

Note: Oregon licensing requires that tattoo artists attend full time school, 50 practical’s and must pass state boards to obtain a license. This licensing process is lengthy and cannot be avoided. Our courses teach additional technique and while they can be taken before obtaining Oregon licensing, we like to make it clear that Oregon residents, working in Oregon, must have a valid Oregon Tattoo License. This training does not count toward Oregon school required hours but does count toward your continued educational hours. We teach technique not taught in Oregon Licensed Tattoo Schools, so our training is invaluable to a new artist working in the cosmetic tattoo industry.

The course spans two days. The online training portion of the course is available for 12 months and you can access it as often as you like. We also offer support via email for life. Your questions will be answered by Daela Academy staff and escalated to Master Artists if need be.

Yes! Working with a live model is imperative to your success. Learning how to work on the skin is the most important part of an in-person course. Each student will have time on the skin to learn with proper one on one instruction. Notes: Some courses will include a shared model, while others will have individual models. If you cannot prove technique on fake skins, we may not allow you to work on a live model.  However, if you have not mastered a sufficient technique and need more time to practice, you may attend an additional class and work on a live model at no additional cost to you. We will require that you submit skins to us for review before signing you up for an additional class.

We provide continental breakfast and lunch and beverages.  If you have strict dietary concerns, please let us know in advance.  We would love to accommodate your dietary restrictions, if we cannot then we will recommend you bring your own food.

We have a beautiful new state-of-the-art private training space located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, just a few minutes' walk from the waterfront, delicious restaurants and hotels!

We are proud to say that class is casual and fun! You may dress comfortably, but please be aware that we take video and pictures during class. Dress as you would at your place of business, when working on clients. Jeans are fine, funky is fine. Our community is very supportive and inclusive, please express yourself and leave here feeling inspired and empowered.

Just bring yourself. We will provide everything you need for class.

*Areola trainee note: If you already have a tattoo machine that you want to use, please bring it. We will ensure it will work properly for the technique. You are not required to bring a machine, we supply them for students.

Consulting applies to you if you are:

  • a previous student requiring additional training (more than just a quick question)
  • a professional who has some detailed questions for our artists but might not need a full training.

If you have detailed questions about specifics of any course, you can schedule a Zoom, phone call or email with the trainer. 

Call to schedule!

Note: our staff will answer questions you have about a course you are considering taking at no charge, ask all the questions you want! The consulting is specifically for circumstances where you need the full attention of our artists for an hour or more.

The charge is $150 per hour. 

Shadow Days are available to students who have completed a course. 

They can be tacked on to the end of a training or scheduled after the training.

You will spend a day with your trainer and observe them through the normal course of business:

  • Receiving clients
  • Gathering waiver signatures
  • Consulting
  • performing services
  • Checking them out
  • All other daily activities which include spending time on social media, building trays, and sanitizing their space.

Who is this good for? This is an exceptional day if you are new to the business and have never interacted with clients or if you have been in the business and feel you could use some 'bedside manner' training or help in task managing your busy day.

Cost: $750

A Model Day looks like this:

  • You will spend the first half of the day observing the trainer take a client.
  • You will do additional machine work.
  • Lunch is provided.
  • After lunch you will take a live model!

This addition is valuable to someone new in the business who feels they need additional live model work and would also benefit from seeing the artist work on another client. This is very much like a Shadow Day except you get time on the machine on fake skins and on a live client.

Cost: $1250

Online Training is a detailed training available a la carte and is also included with in-person courses. 

The course is pre-recorded, so you take the sections as your time allows.

If you sign up for an in-person course, you are given instant access to the online training.

If you take online training and then want to add the in-person course, we deduct the $785 you paid for the online training from your course cost!
