Semi-Permanent Make-Up Insurance Explained

By Dean Laming on June 13th, 2024

As a make-up artist specialising in semi-permanent make-up, also known as micropigmentation, you understand the importance of delivering high-quality, safe treatments to your clients. While your skills and expertise are crucial to your success, it’s equally essential to protect your business with the right insurance cover.

We’ll explore the ins and outs of semi-permanent make-up insurance and why it’s a must-have for any professional in the field.

Understanding Semi-Permanent Make-Up Insurance

Semi-permanent make-up insurance, also referred to as micropigmentation insurance, is a specialised form of coverage designed to protect make-up artists who offer semi-permanent cosmetic treatments.

This type of insurance typically includes several key components:

1. Public Liability Insurance

This covers you in the event that a client or member of the public suffers an injury or property damage as a result of your business activities. For example, if a client trips and falls in your salon, public liability insurance would cover the costs associated with their claim.

2. Treatment Risk Insurance

As a semi-permanent make-up artist, you work directly on clients’ skin, which carries inherent risks. Treatment risk insurance covers you if a client experiences an adverse reaction or complication as a result of the micropigmentation treatment you provided.

3. Product Liability Insurance

This type of coverage protects you if a client suffers harm due to a product you used during their treatment, such as an allergic reaction to a pigment or anaesthetic.

4. Financial Loss Insurance

This type of insurance covers you in case a client suffers a financial loss due to your negligence or malpractice. For instance, if a client claims that your semi-permanent makeup treatment caused them to lose income due to time off work for recovery or corrective treatments, financial loss insurance would cover the costs associated with their claim.

5. Employers’ Liability Insurance

If you have employees working for you, Employers’ Liability Insurance is a legal requirement in the UK. IT provides coverage for claims made by employees who have suffered an injury or illness due to their work, helping to cover legal costs and compensation payments related to such claims.

Why Do Make-Up Artists Need Semi-Permanent Make-Up Insurance?

While you may take every precaution to ensure the safety and satisfaction of your clients, accidents and unforeseen circumstances can still occur. Here are a few key reasons why having semi-permanent make-up insurance is crucial:

  • Financial Protection: If a client makes a claim against your business, the costs can quickly add up. From legal fees to compensation payouts, the financial burden can be significant. With the right insurance coverage, you can mitigate these risks and protect your business from financial strain.
  • Professional Credibility: Having proper insurance coverage demonstrates your commitment to professionalism and client safety. It can help build trust with potential clients and set you apart from competitors who may not have the same level of protection.
  • Legal Requirements: Depending on your location and the specific treatments you offer, you may be legally required to have certain types of insurance, such as public liability or employer’s liability insurance if you have staff.

Choosing the Right Semi-Permanent Make-Up Insurance Provider

When selecting an insurance provider for your semi-permanent make-up business, consider the following factors:

Industry Experience

Look for providers who specialise in the beauty industry and have a deep understanding of the unique risks and challenges faced by make-up artists.

Coverage Options

Ensure that the provider offers comprehensive coverage that meets your specific needs, including public liability, treatment risk, and product liability insurance.

Reputation and Reviews

Research the provider’s reputation within the industry and read reviews from other beauty professionals to gauge their level of service and customer satisfaction.

Price and Value

While cost is an important consideration, don’t simply opt for the cheapest policy. Look for a balance between comprehensive coverage and affordable premiums.
