This is not your typical Color Theory Course. The term Color Theory doesn't even come close in describing what this course offers and teaches. This course dives deep into Skin, Pigment Science, Pigment Color & Selection, Modifiers, Depth, Saturation, Technique and Corrections...all of which directly affect your healed-in color results. 

The information in this course is some of the most critical and important information a PMU artist must learn in order to have beautiful healed-in color results and to ensure your healed-in color results age with stability. Color Theory can be one of the hardest topics to learn and understand. This course will simplify the complicated and empower you with the pertinent knowledge and confidence to deliver predictable results for each and every client and skin type. 

Teachers who have lived and breathed the industry such as Teryn has for the last 20 years bring real value to the lessons they teach and that’s what Teryn brings to this subject. Teryn teaches this course from a basis of science, theory and experience. With all the different topics addressed, the organized structure of the course, her delivery, her in-depth knowledge, her thought provoking concepts and high regard for all the different types of artists and techniques, will leave you absolutely awestruck. Teryn doesn’t just teach you about color theory stuff…she will instill in you the knowledge and skills necessary to transition from this course into successful application in your procedure room.

This course is NON-Pigment Brand Specific. The information and education provided in this course is universal and relevant to any pigment brand.

"I took an online color theory course from Teryn and am blown away of how much information and how wonderful the course was. I have gained so much knowledge and confidence of what I should and shouldn't use on my clients. After taking the course, I placed a few orders to get what I want from the Girlz Ink shop and never get disappointed. The orders always came so nicely and quick. I also never have any trouble or feel ashamed of whenever I reached out to the Girlz Ink Team when I need some advices and suggestions for what I should get for my appointments. I can't say thank you enough to all of these ladies."
