There are many things that a Permanent Makeup Technician must consider when assessing the skin tone of a client. In the Permanent Makeup industry the Fitzpatrick Scale is typically used as a starting point for matching skin tones to assist them in correctly choosing the proper color for a particular client.
The Fitzpatrick Scale is commonly used by dermatologists to evaluate the risks of skin cancer and skin treatments. This scale is a numerical classification for the color of the skin that divides it into five basic types from bisque to mahogany. It measures several components: genetic disposition, reaction to sun exposure and whether a person tans or burns.
