Now HERE's a FUNNY one...
REGARDING BOTOX & DERMAL FILLERS: PLEASE ...DON'T GET INJECTIONS AFTER GETTING
PERMANENT EYEBROWS, AND THEN BLAME ME FOR THEM BEING CROOKED. (Can I get an LOL here?)
The natural (or enhanced) shape of your brows should be taken into consideration PRIOR to injecting. The
injector should be ARTISTIC enough, to be able to balance the muscular structure with your natural (or new)
brow placement. Even the, thing may need to be tweaked a bit.
WHEN THINGS DON'T GO AS PLANNED...
This happens in your life as well as mine. So if things ever get stalled, I will be patient with you and I hope you
will be patient with me, as well as with the person in my chair who may be having trouble making decisions - or - in
some cases, their skin may be less cooperative than what I would like it to be... . Also, we live in a huge hectic city
and we all have lot's of things pulling on us. From traffic, to family and those last minute things that jump up and
Whatever the reason might be, it is best to schedule your appointment on a day where you are more flexible with
time. And if you end up having to wait, please be patient, because I promise to be just as patient and attentive,
when it's your turn to sit in my chair.
Thanks in advance for your understanding.
|By the way... :) T H A N K Y O U TO ALL CLIENTS, past and future...
...who allow me to post their photographs on line.... And also to those who
allow me to show their photos in the privacy of my office. Because without
you guys, I would have nothing to display at all!
PAIN CONTROL: I will do my best to keep you very comfortable with a numbing
process that takes about 15-30 minutes, prior to the procedure. While your skin is
numbing, I will use that time to set up for your session, and then we will go through an
extensive design process. Once you say you LOVE the design, I will gently start the
FIRST, ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE A CANDIDATE?
YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER PERMANENT MAKEUP IF YOU ARE A MEDICAL RISK SUCH AS TAKING BLOOD
THINNERS, HAVING DIABETES MELLITUSs (high blood sugar), HEMOPHILIA (bleeding disorder), PERIPHERAL
VASCULAR DISEASE, OR ANY ACTIVE INFECTION (staff or impetigo). IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING A
BABY, YOU ARE ALSO NOT A CANDIDATE.
It is also good to know how to plan for and take care of the procedure area for approximately 7-10 day following
the session. See the pages called PLAN AHEAD and AFTER CARE to know what to do both before and
after your procedure.
Remember - we are creating an open wound. So healing time should be considered and there are
some definite NO-NO's to be aware of during the healing process. Again, see AFTER CARE PAGE!!
LIP PROCEDURES: If you have ever had a fever blister, (even 1) you should obtain a prescription from
your physician for an antiviral medication such as ZOVIRAX or VALTREX. Start taking the prescription as
directed about 3 days prior to the procedure taking place. This will "HELP" (not necessarily prevent) an outbreak.
WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND "THE PROCESS" and you're ready to schedule a
consultation or an appointment, please text the following info to 713-443-8999:
- Your Full Name
- Email address - if you want to be notified of upcoming specials
- Date of Birth
- Cell Phone Number & best time to call.
- Offer 2-3 options (dates & times) that you are available.
- Say: "I AM A CANDIDATE".............This means that you understand the following info.
- ARE NOT PREGNANT
- ARE NOT NURSING A BABY
- ARE NOT DIABETIC
- ARE NOT UNDERGOING CHEMO
- ARE NOT SUFFERING OTHER MEDICAL CONDITIONS that would prohibit a procedure. You will
need to check with your doctor if you don't know for sure.
- HAVE READ the MOST IMPORTANT PAGES and you UNDERSTAND that PERMANENT
MAKEUP IS A PROCESS that may only take one session to complete or it may take many -
depending on many variables that are covered on this website.
- ARE PREPARED TO ACCEPT OR DECLINE the FREE ALLERGY TEST. Testing helps
determine potential reactions. Most people are NOT allergic, but we never know who will be. So
if you would like to take advantage of this complimentary test... you must schedule your consult
and test at least 5 days PRIOR TO the actual procedure. SPECIFY OPTION A or OPTION B (above).
|BE SURE TO READ ON, there's a lot to learn to prepare you for a satifying experience.
I'm looking forward to the opportunity of helping you!
ARE YOU AFRAID TO BE STUCK WITH ONE LOOK?
Well, if you DON'T get permanent makeup, you will surely be stuck with plain! (insert chirping crickets here...)
I'm just playing... but really, there is nothing to worry about (if things are done right...) Because NO
PERMANENT MAKEUP should be so overwhelming that you can't enhance it every day with a little something
DIFFERENT... If you DO get permanent makeup, you’re going to look “better” than you would, if you had no
makeup on at all. And that feels pretty good on those days when you don’t have time to apply make up ...or just
don't feel like it.
Permanent or Semi-Permanent? Honestly, It’s ALL considered permanent because it will not smear or wash
off, but some techniques are applied more superficially, creating softer and more natural looking results, while
others are darker and longer lasting. The down side of the softer approach, is that it fades faster than
traditional tattoos. The downside to the darker application is that it can look too harsh and ...fake.
Great Candidates for permanent makeup include . . .
- Women allergic to traditional cosmetics.
- Those who have lost motor skills, and can no longer apply their own makeup.
- Busy Professionals, who have limited time.
- Women with oily skin who struggle to keep their makeup in place.
- Athletes, gardeners, swimmers who want to look good, but not totally made up.
- Men and women who have facial scars, especially in the brow area.
- People with other scarring due to injury or post surgical scarring.
- Women who have had mastectomies or breast augmentation surgeries.
YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER PERMANENT MAKEUP IF YOU ARE PREGNANT, NURSING A BABY
OR HAVE DIABETES...
MY PERSPECTIVE ON PERMAMENT COSMETICS...
There's a very fine line between too much and just enough permanent makeup.... the problem is,
that line is different for EVERY CLIENT. So, it is MY job, to find that line... without creating permanent
problems - ON YOUR FACE. It can be tricky... every procedure is experimental because we never know exactly
how things will turn out. But if we go slowly, we can avoid most of the pitfalls that are typically associated with
permanent makeup. We have to always consider the following
- Every client has different skin types. Young skin with a fine and smooth texture may look better than
someone with aged skin. Oily skin may heal differently than dry skin, etc...
- Every client has a different metabolism, and will process each color differently.
- Every client heals at different rates. Faster healers generally do better because the pigment get covered
with new skin more quickly, allowing less release of color.
- Some are on medications that slow down healing.
- SMOKERS may not heal as well as others due to carbon monoxide that blocks oxygen to cell.
- MEDICATIONS AND NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS: Some can benefit the process, while others may
So you see, there is really no way to tell how successfully a person will heal and how much pigment each person
will retain. For this reason, there CAN BE NO GUARANTEES... So I approach each treatment with reasonable
caution and I treat each process as experimental, because it is.
BROWS AND SCAR CAMOUFLAGE vs OTHER PERMANENT COSMETICS...
ALL PERMANENT MAKEUP IS A PROCESS! And taking baby steps always makes for softer, more beautiful
results in the end. Especially true for BROWS and PARAMEDICAL procedures as they require a little more
artistic skill to make things look realistic. Eyeliner and Lips can be applied more dramatically at the first session.
PRICE SHOPPING: CHEAP WORK IS RARELY GOOD ~ GOOD WORK IS NEVER CHEAP. But at the
same time... I do understand money does not grow on trees. But, before settling on price alone, please make
sure that the person who is about to tattoo permanent marks on your FACE, can actually DRAW. If you're not
sure if they can... Just ask them to draw a set of brows on paper to show thier style of drawing. If they don't or
try to draw your brows in on your face... that is a good indicator that the artistic skill set is lacking. Be careful.
Because if you are not happy, you'll end up with regrets and a new bill for corrections.
If you feel that you can't afford high quality work. I am happy to discuss payment plans. I also can now accept
CARE CREDIT. So soon, you too can end your war with shifting brows, smeared eyeliner and vanishing lips!
Just imagine how great it is going to feel, to be in REALLY GOOD HANDS - and to also be free from those
AND JUST SO YOU KNOW...
One reason my prices are higher than some places is that I DON'T HERD PEOPLE IN AND OUT... I work with you
until you are HAPPY! Because of this, I need to schedule less procedures in a day than most other people. This
way, I can spend more time per procedure, which NORMALLY allows for everything to run smoothly.

FREE ALLERGY TESTING: ALLERGIC REACTIONS can happen at any time to anyone. They may show
up immediately following a procedure - or at any point in the future. Even if you've had previous tattoos, permanent
makeup and even if you have never had any other skin reactions. Testing just shows us if you will be "immediately"
affected, and in no way indicates that you will always be free from an allergic reactionS.
THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT . . .
A. CONSULT with ALLERGY TESTING (Procedure will be done at a later date). The Consult and Allergy Testing
takes about 30 minutes. After testing, you will need to wait at least 5 days to allow time for redness to subside.
Redness after 3-5 days is an indication of either an infection or a reaction. If the test site is flat, and does not seem
to be puffy or red, it is safe to assume you will not have a reaction to the pigment that was tested.
B. CONSULT with PROCEDURE (both done on the same day).
ALLERGY TESTING IS ALWAYS RECOMMENDED for your safety! But the truth allergic reactions are extremely
rare. Problem is hile extremely rare, So if you want to minimize potential issues, and decide that you want the test,
you must schedule a separate date for testing (a minimum of 5 days) prior to your procedure for results to appear.
THIS TEST IS STILL NOT A GUARANTEED CONCLUSION that you will not develop an allergy, months or even years
You may decline the test and proceed with the procedure immediately after your consultation, if you choose to.
Just an FYI...
TEXTING IS USUALLY BEST FOR ME...
So if you could, please send a message stating
your interests and the best time to call you back.
If you do call, the best times to reach me are:
- Mornings . . . . . . . . 7:00 - 9:00 am
- Evenings . . . . . . . . 5:00 - 7:00 pm
|Do you have an iPhone?
If so, you must send your message as an
SMS text, not an iMessage, or I will not
receive your information.
(SMS displays as a green message.
iMessages display as blue!)
|ALSO, IF YOU HAVE TRIED TO REACH ME... without a
reply, I assure you, it's not deliberate. I've been flooded
with work lately and am experiencing a few growing
pains. I would like to apologize for that now,
and ask you to please try again...
Thank you very much for understanding!
If you take nothing else away from reading my website,
please understand that I truly care
about YOU and I think my reputation reflects that
feeling. I will always tell you the truth... like this: If
you're looking for absolute perfection, I'll say that's
probably an unrealistic goal - especially if you expect
too much, too fast. You just can't rush this process...
and expect perfection.
But with time and patience, I know how beautiful it can be
when I am allowed to perform a layering process that takes
place over a period of a few months (yes months). Most
people need to heal for at least 4-6 weeks before adding
subsequent layers, so it just takes time.
ALL APPOINTMENTS WILL NEED TO BE SECURED WITH A DEPOSIT OF $50.
This is deposit is NOT an extra charge. It is designed to prevent no shows, and the amount will be applied to
your procedure of choice.
ON LINE BOOKING COMING SOON!
Pretty soon, you will be able to log on and book your own appointment on line at PERMETIKA.com
A deposit of $50 will be required in advance to prior to secure your appointment. Certain blocks of time
will be available on the calendar to choose from. If you want an appointment outside of the posted time frames,
you may inquire of another date, and if I am able to accommodate you, I will be happy to. Late or Weekend
Appointments are not always available, but when they are, will come with an extra charge.
Regardless of the procedure you are interested in...
it all boil down to this. I am an artist, and your skin is my canvas!
I try to make everything look as real and natural as possible.
I almost always use multiple colors to custom blend pigments in
with your specific skin tone, and I will be keeping your personal
preferences in mind the whole time...and, you will have a mirror
at your request just for your own piece of mind.
Some artists allow their paintings to dry some between the layers...
I do the same with your skin. In permanent makeup, it's just a matter of
waiting for things to heal. For this reason, you should KNOW IN ADVANCE
that multiple follow-up sessions are recommended in order to produce the
most realistic results. So there are NO SURPRISES!
A meeting of the minds, will
give you the understanding
and patience to complete the
process - and as a result, the
end results will shine!
I am confident of this because I treat each client,
procedure AND individual stroke - as unique as
you are. You will not experience a solid, fake
looking filled in look. Each stroke is deliberate...
just as an artist would do when creating a
realistic looking piece of art. My goal is to
deliver very natural looking work or work that
looks like makeup. Many times, the creations
look BETTER than makeup.
I know there is a lot of information to absorb.
And it can be repetitive at times... (but I don't
worry about the repetitive part much. I think that's
actually helpful to the skim readers out there).
But I really hope everyone will take full advantage
of the information here, because there are not
enough hours in the day to relay it, otherwise.
I don't JUST want your business. I also want
you to understand what I'm doing, and why. So,
here are some of the main points from the
website, recapped here:
- Permanent Makeup CAN LOOK
NATURAL, IF it's performed by an
experienced artist, not a technician who
only does a few random procedures. In
fact, it can almost be undetectable. But
it's very important to understand that to
get to that point, it may take multiple
sessions to achieve your desired goals...
Basically, the higher the expectations, the
longer it might take. Occasionally, it looks
great after just one session. But that's not
the norm. So PLEASE understand this
before you decide to schedule an
- Remember... the ART I create is placed
INTO (living, breathing, moving) human
skin cells, not onto paper or canvas.
Plus, your own metabolism is partially
responsible for how much color holds.
Most people actually hold very little
color after just one session, while
others may hold a lot more. And if that
person is YOU, you're not going to be
pleased. So I can promise you this from
the start, you will never leave here with a
heavy, solid filled-in look. I always start
with a conservative approach. This
means, that most of you WILL need
follow up visits. So just prepare for that.
- The faster your heal, the more color is
retained. SO TAKE ARNICA MONTANA for
a week prior to and a week after your
- BLOOD THINNERS cause a loss of
retention. So if possible, (ck with Dr if
necessary) stop taking anything that thins
the blood for about a week prior to a
procedure. See details on the PLAN
- AFTER CARE is critical in achieving good
results. Failure to follow the instructions
will affect the outcome. Read the
AFTERCARE page on this website.
- End results, vary from person to person.
Because there are so many things that
factor into the end result, AND results will
vary from person to person, I am normally
conservative in the first session. It's much
easier to make adjustments in shape
and color when first done on a small
- A soft approach is not always the best
choice. If you are accustomed to heavy
eyeliner or bolder lip color - it's best to
make the most out of the first session.
- If you're not sure what you want, I can
help! So just request a consultation and
together, we can decide how to be
approach YOUR treatment.
If you don't know a good injector, who is also an artist, I would highly
recommend that you see Dr. Victoria Zavala. She's AMAZING and also keeps
you looking natural. No spock brows here! Call her at 713-628-4987.
CANCELLATION POLICY: As a courtesy to me and to others who may want your spot, I would
appreciate a 48 hour notice of cancellation. If you do not offer at least a 24 hour notice of cancellation, the
deposit will be forfeited and a new deposit will be required to reset your appointment. THIS POLICY HAD TO BE
IMPLEMENTED TO HELP PREVENT NO SHOWS.

Hello, and thank you for visiting here today... I hope you enjoy browsing around. My main goal
here is to offer an IN-DEPTH explanation on how you can get the very best, NATURAL looking permanent makeup. The best
results come from understanding and cooperating with THE PROCESS!
I hope you find the answers to all of your questions here and leave with a sense of relief, knowing that permanent makeup CAN
look great. But the most important thing you should understand is that you need to have a complete understanding of what is
required to COMPLETE the PROCESS to be truly satisfied. ONE HIT WONDERS DO HAPPEN, BUT THAT IS NOT THE NORM.
To help you understand, I've invested a lot of my off-time transferring information from my head to this website. I feel that this is
an investment in you (so that you get what you want, with no regrets...) and it's an investment in my reputation. And it helps me
because there is no possible way to explain every little thing to every client... (because I am one, and you are many!) But I want
you to know what we're up against in advance, so I need you to read and learn. When we finally meet, you will have a better
understanding of how I think, and how this delicate process of permanent makeup should be approached.
