Many cosmetic Tattooists have said to us that for too long; there has been insufficient industry collegial support, education always comes at a financial cost, and industry events are often hard to find. Marketing opportunities have developed the disturbing trend of placing Cosmetic Tattooists in opposition to each other with "bidding wars" for high value keywords, a situation that search engines love because they sell keywords to the highest bidder.

Also the recent trend of using group buying sites has sometimes placed businesses under extreme pressure and caused more harm to the business than good, often the group buying site takes so much money from the business for promoting a deal that neither the business owner nor the customer end up happy.

The executive team at CosmeticTattoo.org decided to create a hybrid service that would solve many of the problems that have been identified by our colleagues. We believe that there is a better way to promote our services via "Collaborative Marketing" which is more cost efficient and it puts the power back into the hands of the business owner where it belongs. We also believe that Cosmetic Tattooists should have access to educational information without always having to pay for everything and you deserve to have a focal hub where you can see what the rest of the industry is up to without spending hours searching around online.

CosmeticTattoo.org is much more than just another association, take a look at the features and what you can use the services for;
