For more information about this topic;
We frequently get asked the question; What kind of site CosmeticTattoo.org?
Probably the best description is a hybrid site that encompasses a broad range of services for Cosmetic Tattooists, associated industry suppliers and manufacturers.
We also enable members of the public who are either looking for information about Cosmetic Tattooing or looking for a Cosmetic Tattooist to find the information they need.
Below are answers to some of the other Frequently Asked Questions that we often receive.
Question: Is CosmeticTattoo.org a regional industry association?
Answer: CosmeticTattoo.org is a Global Membership site that has no geographical restrictions. We believe that there can be significant benefits to our members through collaboration with others in the industry from around the globe, and also benefit to the customers by gaining access to information provided by international industry experts.
Question: Is membership only available to Cosmetic Tattooists?
Answer: We believe that CosmeticTattoo.org should be a platform that enables all participants to collaborate with each other, for that reason we have taken a unique approach to Membership, there are essentially two kinds of membership;
1) Industry Members
Service Providers - Cosmetic Tattooists, Medical Camouflage Makeup Specialists, MESO-Vytal Technicians, Medical Tattooists, Scalp Hair Tattooists.
Affiliated Service Providers - Health Professionals, Body Art Tattooists, Cosmetic Tattoo Suppliers & Manufacturers. All of our members in these categories are also providers of Cosmetic Tattoo services or are directly affiliated with those providing Cosmetic Tattoo services.

Question: Is CosmeticTattoo.org a 'For Profit' or 'Not for Profit' site?
Answer: CosmeticTattoo.org is a hybrid mix of 'for profit' services and also many "free community services" available to industry members and public members.
Question: Aren't sites with the .org extension supposed to be completely not for profit?
Answer: The .org domain extension is completely unrestricted and can be registered by anyone, many .org domains are used for both "For Profit" and hybrid mixtures of commercial and free community services. We believe that it would not be possible to offer the broad range of services that we have available without a commercial approach and our view is that a hybrid site is the most appropriate platform.
Question: What kind of services are available on the site?
