Diary: PCC Celebrates Cosmetic Tattooing Conference Success

Permanent Cosmetic Culture (PCC) hosted its second annual cosmetic tattooing conference over a sell-out two day event at the luxurious Hilton Hotel in Brisbane recently.

PCC 2023 was held at Brisbane’s Hilton Hotel

More than 100 guests attended the interactive and educational sessions that were led by a stellar line up of local and international speakers who helped guests advance their skills in the tattooing industry.

Event Co-Founder June Warry, who formed PCC with Nicole Prance, revealed the conference, which had been a year in the planning was a huge success commenting: “What PCC learnt from our previous event in 2022, is that we are creatives. We need to be interactive and have hands-on experiences and so our ‘workshop’ type event was born.”

PCC hand-picked four ‘Head Trainers’ – Emma Barlee from the UK, Anna Nuygen from Zerda Beaute Brisbane, Danielle Scott from D’Air by Danielle at the Gold Coast, and Thao Le from Le Brows Melbourne to bring the interactive workshop element to life.

Each head trainer provided amazing skill, advice and support for delegates. With a specific task in hand, the Head Trainer’s guided delegates live on stage and directly at each workstation.

“This gave our delegates valuable assistance in hand positioning, needle placement and also the opportunity to try different machines and techniques all whilst learning in a safe learning environment. The workstations created conversation and interaction all whilst learning. A new PCC tradition that we will carry on,” June said.

PCC’s headliner acts in tattoo were Maya Moore from Moore Beauty Love in California and Mini from Mini Brows Canada. In keeping with the interactive theme, Dr Dean from Take Better Photos, led the delegates through a professional smart phone photography workshop – a highlight for most on how to nail the perfect snap!

Jade and Aaron from JadeStart, renowned Beauty Business coaches provided valuable expertise including recession advice. Kayla from Socials for Salons helped everyone to tee-up their socials for better engagement.

The surprise keynote speaker Nick May from Denver, USA, had the audience in awe whilst telling his rags to riches story on how he built his business Walls By Design.

Throughout the event, guests had plenty of chance to network over lunch and afternoon tea, then dance the night away at the glamorous gala dinner in the ballroom on the final evening.

PCC’s sister event ‘ABACTA‘ (Australian Beauty & Cosmetic Tattooing Awards) will be hosting their next event on Saturday 21 October, 2023 in Brisbane.
