​My experiences

  • 2001: Apprenticeship under Jan Larsen (Tattoo by Larsen in Ringsted).
  • 2008: Apprenticeship under Bimbo (Jørgen Konzol Torsteinson) at Tattoo Ole Nyhavn 17.
  • 2012: Further education in Micropigmentation / PMU with Mona Lisa.
  • 2013: Founding member of ESTP 2013 - the European Association for Tattoo and Pigment Research (Bispebjerg Hospital).
  • 2013: Vice Chairman of the Danish Tattoo Guild. However, she decided in 2015 to simply sit on the board, where she remained until the end of 2016.
  • 2020: In connection with the New Tattoo Law from 2018, Majbritt Petersen founded the sub-section "Danish Cosmetic Tattoo Artists", which aims to ensure the quality of work with permanent makeup and ensure that the industry complies with upcoming legislation, in collaboration with the Danish Cosmetologist Association. This lasted until 2022.
