Now HERE's a FUNNY one...
REGARDING BOTOX & DERMAL FILLERS:  PLEASE ...DON'T GO GET INJECTIONS AFTER GETTING
PERMANENT EYEBROWS, AND THEN BLAME ME FOR THEM BEING CROOKED.
(Can I get an LOL here?
Because it REALLY HAPPENS...)  
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.
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
bite us...   

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... :)  I WANT TO SAY A BIG  "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 process.
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.

  • YOU 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.

  • YOU 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!
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, i
t 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
    impede it.

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
worries.

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.
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 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.
procedure are you are interested. It
all boil down to this. I am an artist,
and your SKIN is my canvas, which
is a living, breathing, moving
organism, and there are going to
be reactions, to one degree or
another!  
It may be 100% favorable or
it may need some finessing.  

SO EACH PROCEDURE IS BASICALLY
EXPERIMENTAL and it could take
multiple sessions. The higher the
expectations, the mores sessions it may
take.   
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.  

Just as some artists allow their
paintings to dry some between the
layers...  I do the same with your
skin. It's called the healing process.

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
If you don't know a good injector, 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.   And she's an artist too!

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, I really appreciate you for stopping in!  You can read
more about how I got into this wonderful field, by going to my
ABOUT ME  page... but in short, the reason that I have
excelled in this field, is that I was an ARTIST FIRST, long
natural eye for color and symmetry and I am able to perform
Permanent Cosmetics that DO NOT look like tattoos, and my
goal, is to ONLY do realistic looking strokes, that look as real
as I can possibly get them. I do NOT do those "3D" strokes
that look cartoonish, or like optical illusions! Here, you will
find that I specialize solely, in Micropigmentation
and Medical Aesthetics services, that compliment your
natural beauty!

So, yes... I know why you're here! You are TIRED of struggling to maintain
something, that you used to not have to worry about. But, you're hesitant
because you don't want to end up with regrets.  Right??

Well, what if I told you, that there was a way to ease or even eliminate those
worries? What if, there was a way, for permanent cosmetics to look almost
UNDETECTABLE, other than giving your face, the support it needs. WOULD
YOU WANT IT?  I know you would... but it is very important, for you to
understand HOW I APPROACH THIS PROCESS.  I start out conservatively!
That's how. Regardless, of your normal makeup routine. You may want a
barely there look or you may want something more dramatic. BUT, either
way, I insist on making the first session a very soft verson of the end result!  
Once healed, I'll be looking for the following data, as in, how did it heal?

This is epecifically true for brows services:
  • Did the strokes stay light and crisp?
  • Did the strokes spread out? If so, how much?
  • Did the color stay warm?
  • Did the color heal in cooler than expected?
  • Did the strokes stay consistent, from beginning to end?

Once all of this data has been collected, I will create a new plan. I may use
all the same colors as in the first session, or I may pick new ones to
enhance or counteract the original colors. Because the bottom line here is, I
can use the same color on 10 people who have similar skin tones. But each
one will heal in with a unique look.  For this reason, I START SLOW. Because
slow and easy, wins the race.  And I want to create award winning, quality
permanent makeup.  I don't want to create regrets. Ever.

I know you are most interested in pictures and pricing.  

But there is a lot more to know...  and it really helps if clients have a FULL
UNDERSTANDING of how I perform this process.  Please be sure to read the
following pages:

  • PLAN AHEAD
  • AFTERCARE
  • RISKS

Once you understand this process, and you have decided that you're ready...
please send me a
text asking for FIRST AVAILABLE DATES or offer me at
least 2-3 dates, at least 6-8 weeks in advance.  I will confirm which one
works for me, and we will get started!

BUT FIRST...  my goal, is to impress upon you that, when dealing with
"permanent" makeup, SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE!  Which is why
my approach is a conservative one!  Because
MY WORK... is only ONE part
of the whole mix... The rest is up to you and your body.  
For things to heal in
with favorable results, PROPER AFTERCARE is paramount. As is your YOUR
GOOD HEALTH.  
Good skin plays a major role in the whole the picture too.  
And IF YOU SMOKE or have auto-immune disorders, or are on medications,
fish oils, or anything that thins your blood, it may take extra sessions to
tweek things into perfection.

THIS is where PATIENCE on your part comes into play. DO NOT GET
FRUSTRATED and go somewhere else for "a correction" if things don't turn
out exactly perfect. Remember, this is a process.  I assure you,  I am
capable of handling anything that happens, unless your body totally rejects
the pigment.
 Which, unfortunately can happen... and neither of us can
control that.

So, read on because there is no possible way to explain every little thing to
every client...
(because I am one, and you are many!) So I need you to think
about this and learn as much as you can. Then, when we finally meet, you
will have an understanding of how I think, and how this delicate process of
permanent makeup should be approached.  The best results come from
understanding (and COOPERATING with) THE PROCESS.

To help you understand, I've invested a lot of 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 as well

Back in April of 2014...
I was honored to have been asked by
Lauren Freeman of CHANNEL 2 NEWS to do a
segment on MicroHair Simulation.  It was a great experience, and brought light to a
much needed process to help men and women who are struggling daily with hair loss.
By Appointment Only:  
From the hours of 9am to 7-8pm, I am
normally unable to answer calls.
DO NOT LEAVE A VOICE MESSAGE
Send me a QUICK TEXT instead, and I'll call
you back at my first opportunity. If you don't text,
please call back between 8-9am. THANKS!
ALLERGY SKIN TESTING IS OFFERED AT NO CHARGE:  
You may ACCEPT or DECLINE testing, but I highly recommend it. Even if you
have never experienced a skin reaction, you don't want YOUR FACE to be the
first place it happens...  If accepted, testing should be administered at least
one week prior to your procedure. The actual test only takes about a minute.
FOR MEN:  
I ONLY recommend Micro Hair Simulation if
you are looking for a clean shaven look, as shown
above. For men who are unable to part with the
hair that hasn't fallen out... you should know,
that there is NO WAY to make tattooing look
like your natural hair, if you don't keep it
shaved, or at least 1-3 days growth.  Even the
BEST attempts will not be as flattering as a bald
look.  I DO NOT PERFORM HAIR
SIMULATION FOR MEN WHO ARE NOT
COMMITTED TO MAINTAINING A BALD
LOOK.  

FOR WOMEN:  
If you are suffering from mild hair loss, this
process will help you appear to have fuller hair,
by applying some color on the scalp, it reduces
the reflection of light through thinning hair.
Again, if your hair loss is significant, this might
not be the best procedure for you.
I hope you find the answers to all of your questions here and get a sense of relief, knowing that
permanent makeup CAN look great.

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. Most people need to heal for at least 4-6 weeks before adding
subsequent layers, so it just takes time.  

I am confident, that together, we will create something beautiful!  You will never  experience a solid,
fake looking filled in look.  Each stroke will be deliberately placed, just as an artist would do when
creating a realistic looking piece of art!
