In California, you don’t need an esthetician or cosmetology license to perform microblading. The state requirements only include Bloodborne Pathogen Exam. However, microblading licensing requirements are different based on state, city, and county and should be checked with the oversight body. Check with the local health department, because there might be some local requirements.
The licensing regulations are prone to changes so we advise you to always check the California Department of Public Health first, as well as the Health Department in your city.
