Courses at Trillium

Pam is a professional who believes knowledge is power.  She is a dedicated trainer, devoted to her students’ success.  This is why she created hybrid courses that include online training combined with hands-on training with live models.

Oregon State requires that students meet the minimum 360 hours of training and complete 50 procedures before taking the exams. 210 theory hours must be completed before students may begin work on live models.

Trillium Ink Academy is approved and offering courses designed to get students ready to take the Oregon licensing exams and educate them in their selected area of tattoo practice. We offer emphasis on permanent cosmetics, scalp micropigmentation, and body art in our beginning courses. Students in these areas may add other areas of practice in the future as they choose.


Permanent Cosmetics

The field of permanent cosmetics has grown to enormous proportions. With today’s busy lifestyles, women and men everywhere want to look their best with the least amount of time involved. Perfectly applied makeup that stays all day is highly desirable.

This course gives students the fundamental training in makeup tattooing & the solid foundational basics required to apply for exams. 

Permanent cosmetics training is the foundational education to other cosmetic tattoo services. Post surgical tattooing restores missing color to areolas following breast reconstruction, camouflages, surgical scarring, and can significantly improve many birth defects and accidental scarring. Students wanting to pursue a career in medical tattooing must get the foundational training, then add other areas of practice to their skillset.



Scalp Micropigmentation

For anyone balding, receding hairlines, thinning hair, or scarring in the scalp, scalp micropigmentation can be a life changing procedure.

Both men and women experience pattern balding or thinning. Many have surgical scars or accident-related scars on the scalp. More and more people are affected by auto-immune diseases or other illnesses that leave them with little or no hair. The effects are devastating.

Scalp micropigmentation is currently the fastest growing area of tattooing. The benefits of this process make it an incredibly lucrative area of practice, with many niche markets. Students with a desire to go into this field will find it demanding but unbelievably rewarding. Trillium Ink has perfected this art using the Trillium Ink Technique and teaches it as an area of emphasis in the Oregon school.



Body Art

In today’s society body art tattooing is a household topic of discussion. People of all ages from all walks of life seek quality tattoo art.

Trillium Ink Academy offers fundamental training to those just getting started or those needing to get their Oregon license.

A successful career in the tattoo industry begins with a foundational education in all aspects of the procedure and business development. Each artist will develop a style of their own as they practice countless hours behind the needle.

Pam believes a high level of professionalism and a solid sense of responsibility to the client are key in supporting the industry and ensuring each artists’ own success.


Our interactive online training and live online classes allow students from across the state to attend the academy. Theory hours and lectures can be done from home, hands-on days at the Tigard location are mostly weekends, all allowing students to maintain their current employment while working towards their new career.
