A little about Me & my philosophy concerning Permanent Cosmetics . . .
There's a very fine line between too much and just enough permanent makeup.... It is MY job, to find that fine line - for you!
Every client has different skin types. Every client has a different metabolism. Every client will heal at a different rate than the
last... Some are on medications that slow down healing, others may some smoke - which also blocks sucessful healing and
others are on nutritional supplements, which could benefit the process or impede it. So there is no one scenario that 100%
dictates how successfully a person will heal and how much pigment each person will retain. For this reason, there CAN BE
NO GUARANTEES... and I treat each process as experimental until I GET TO KNOW YOUR SKIN.
I DO NOT DO BROW PERMANENT COSMETICS THE WAY MANY OTHERS DO... Most people apply MORE on the first session
(with the expectation that it will fade...enough). Then the plan is to add a little more at the touch up... But what if it doesn't
fade... enough? I like to get your brows to a pretty place and let them heal - THEN fill in sparse areas after I see how your skin
I realize you don't want to come in and pay and have nothing to show for it... But if you can link your mind, with mine ~ you'll
begin to realize too, that PMU IS A PROCESS! And that taking baby steps (mainly on brows and paramedical procedures)
makes for softer, more beautiful results in the end - and just makes a LOT more sense!
PRICE SHOPPING: THERE ARE MANY OTHER PLACES IN TOWN THAT OFFER LOWER PRICES. But, before settling, please make
sure that the person who is about to tattoo something on your FACE, can actually draw the same thing, on paper! If you're not
sure if they can... Just ask them to. : ) CHEAP WORK IS RARELY GOOD ~ GOOD WORK IS NEVER CHEAP. I am happy to
discuss payment plans. And soon, you too can end your war with shifting brows, smeared eyeliner and vanishing lips! Just
imagine how great it would feel, to be free from those worries - and have the confidence that you are in REALLY GOOD
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...)
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 to the soft is that it fades faster than traditional tattoos. The downside to the darker application is that it can
look too harsh.
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 OR HAVE DIABETES...
|READ ON, there's more and I'm looking forward to the opportunity of helping you!
|I try to confirm all appointments the day before your
procedure... If you have not received a confirmation text
from me, send me one to let me know you are still
planning on keeping your appointment. This will help avoid
any mishaps in scheduling... because we are all human.
When you arrive at the office, please inform the
receptionist know that you have an appointment with
Connie (just so they don't wonder who you are there to
see...). Then have a seat and send me a quick text - to let
me know that you have arrived. I'll bring you some
paperwork to fill out and apply some numbing cream to
help make your experience a comfortable one. Then we
can follow-up with any final questions you may have. Then,
we can get started with a brand new creation...
My calendar fills up quickly, so it's best to call about 2 weeks in
advance of when you would like to book your appointment.
But, you can always ask if I have any openings sooner. If I do, I am
happy to accommodate you!
Currently, my normal procedure times are as follows:
| M: ADMINISTRATIVE & OVERFLOW DAY|
| T: 9:00 - 12:00 . . . . . . . . 11:00 - 2:00 . . . . . . . . 1:00 - 4:00 |

| S: MAY INQUIRE - ADDITIONAL FEE OF $100 WILL APPLY|

WHY I PREFER TEXTING:
It's not that I don't like to talk... because God knows, I do
love a good conversation.... but I am usually up to my
elbows in gloves and pigment ~ which makes it very difficult
for me to stop and chat during the day.
Emails are the slowest form of communication for me. I
simply don't get much computer time anymore. And my
inbox is consumed with so much STUFF... I may miss your
contact. I'm sure I will eventually find it and reply.
So by default, texting has become the best and fastest way
to communicate, especially initially. So, at your
convenience, send me a quick text letting me know YOUR
NAME, PROCEDURE OF INTEREST, and we can set up a
time for a phone consultation. Then I will be happy to talk to
you at length and answer all of your concerns!
So... for the quickest response SEND A TEXT - if you can.
|I am very thankful to everyone who has
allowed me to show their photographs
on my website. And I respect the
privacy of others who have asked me
publish their photos, but allow me to
show you in the privacy of my office...
My deepest appreciation
goes out to all... Without YOU ALL I
would have nothing to share!
NOTE: There are no STOCK PHOTOS on this
website. All images are ORIGINAL (unretouched)
photos of actual clients, taken by me.
This is good for you to know, especially when
some websites actually present before and after
photos supplied from various product
IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO TEXT... the best times to
reach me would be just before and after work:
- Mornings . . . . . . . from 9-10 am
- Afternoons . . . . . . from 5-7ish pm
|PLEASE NOTE: ALL PHOTOS ON THIS SITE ARE OF ORIGINAL WORK PERFORMED BY CONNIE PEARSON @ PERMETIKA COSMETIC SPECIALTIES
|FIRST, ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE A CANDIDATE?
YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER PERMANENT MAKEUP IF YOU ARE
PREGNANT, NURSING OR HAVE DIABETES... 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
IMPORTANT: ALLERGIC REACTIONS can happen at any time to
anyone - even if you've never had any other skin reactions. Allergic
reactions may show up immediately or at any point in the future.
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 . . . PICK OPTION A or B:
A. CONSULT with ALLERGY TESTING (Procedure @ later date).
The Consult takes about 30 minutes and the test takes less than 5
minutes. After testing, we will need to wait least 3-5 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 & 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 down the
road. There is always a small chance that your body may develop a
reaction at some point in the future. You may decline the test and
proceed with the procedure immediately after your consultation, if
you choose to.
When you are ready, please send the following info - and I'll get
back with you as soon as possible:
- Email address
- Cell Phone Number & best time to call.
- Offer 2-3 options (dates & times) that you can come.
- Say: "I AM A CANDIDATE" This means that you are
- NOT pregnant,
- NOT nursing a baby,
- You do NOT have diabetes or have ANY other
medical condition that would prohibit a procedure.
- 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.
- If you want an allergy test to help determine potential
reactions, one must be scheduled 3-5 days in
advance of the actual procedure.
- SPECIFY OPTION A or OPTION B (above)
|ALL APPOINTMENTS NEED TO BE SECURED WITH A DEPOSIT OF $50. BASICALLY, THIS FEE HAS BEEN REINSTATED IN
ORDER TO PREVENT NO SHOWS. THIS WILL BE APPLIED TOWARD YOUR PROCEDURE OF CHOICE.
If you are seeking a LIP PROCEDURE and 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.
Extra Fees Apply for Evenings or Weekends:
On occasion, I may be able to work later in the day, and an
occasional weekends, as my schedule permits. But since this
cuts into personal and family time, additional fees will apply
3:00 pm . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . additional $50
5:00 pm . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . additional $75
SATURDAY (limited availability) . . . . . . . . . additional $100
|No Shows and last minute cancellations may reschedule with a deposit of $50, secured by credit card (in advance) over the phone.
Thank you for understanding!
JUST SO YOU KNOW... I DON'T HERD
PEOPLE IN AND OUT... and I don't
I work with you until you are HAPPY! Because of
this, I can only schedule 2-3 people in any one
day. And I allow at least 2-3 hours per
procedure, which NORMALLY is plenty of time
for everything to run smoothly.
But on occasion, things don't go as planned.
Maybe someone is having a hard time deciding
exactly what they want, maybe the skin is not
being as cooperative as I would like...
Whatever the reason... it is best to schedule your
appointment on a day where you are flexible with
time. And if you end up having to wait, just
please be patient, because I assure you, I will
be just as patient and attentive with you.
ON THE DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT...
Please DON'T schedule an important meeting following your Plan ahead
to have someone pick up your children if you have an afternoon
And remember, your PMU may be a little too dark for a week or so. So
please don't worry. Everything lightens up and remember - YOU WILL
NEED A FOLLOW UP VISIT to smooth things out! This is NORMAL! Just
pay attention to the things I wrote on this website so that you have a
complete understanding of what to expect. Be sure to follow the instructions
on the AFTER CARE page here, and DO NOT use any cleanser or products
other than what is recommended. Thanks!
OPTIONAL: Arnica Montana - PILLS (purchased at any nutritional store) can be
taken about a week prior to your appointment. This helps prevent swelling and
bruising and promotes better healing. Continue taking for 7-10 more days.

PERMETIKA is a word I
created from the English
Blended with the
Spanish word for cosmetics
which is CosMETIco.
I added a KA at the end
for a little extra flair... And
it's pronounced like
