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?)  
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 schedule your appointment on-line.

Please adhere to the following rules and contraindications that you . . .

  • 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.  
So 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 their style of drawing. If they can't, 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.

But at the same time... I do understand money does not grow on trees. If you feel that you can't afford high
quality work.  I am happy to offer 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 NOW AVAILABLE!
A $50 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.

FOR EVERY SENSE OF STYLE, THERE IS AN ARTIST FOR THAT STYLE!
The clients that I want to attract, are those who value true artistry. By "value", I mean
to have an understanding that I am not operating a BROW MILL where you are moved in
and out, just to get to the next person. I, along with my apprentices,will take a lot of time
to create brows, that not only fit your face... we want them to take your appearance to a
whole new level.  

But you do need to
understand that our job is roughly 1/3 part, of the whole picture. The
second part is that you MUST pay attention to BOTH PRECARE and AFTERCARE in
order to PLAN for and TAKE CARE OF, your skin. The third part is
, what will your body
decide to do with the color we implant.
Because some heals in nicely, while some of it
doesn't do as well for whatever reason.
Sometimes, diet, medications, supplements,
metabolism and even poor aftercare will contribute to the o
utcome. For things to heal in
with favorable results, PROPER AFTERCARE is i
mportant, as is your YOUR GOOD
HEALTH.  Good skin plays a major role in the whole the picture too.  And IF YOU SMOKE

or DRINK HEAVILY
or have an auto-immune disorder, or are on medications, fish oils, or
anything that thins your blood, it may take extra sessions to tweak things into perfection.

Next, it is very important to understand, that my approach to implanting color into
skin is based on one FACT. We can always add more. SO PLEASE KNOW, IN
ADVANCE, THAT MY APPROACH TO PERMANENT MAKEUP IS ALMOST ALWAYS, A
CONSERVATIVE ONE!  

What does this mean, exactly?
It means that we AIM to err on the side of caution!
It means that it's best if you also enter into our relationship, with patience and
understanding that
SLOW AND STEADY, WINS THE RACE...  Sort of like how wedding
cakes take a greater investment than a cake from the grocery store. And BMWs cost
more than a Ford, for a reason!
 Instead of working too heavily to start, with the hopes of
somehow fading BACK into perfection, why don't we just inch up to the finish line,
instead!?  With session #1 done lightly, we will have a clue as to HOW WELL that color
healed into YOUR skin. Then, we can increase the intensity, and/or make proper color or
shape adjustments on subsequent sessions.

Does anyone ever heal in just right? Occasionally, but that's not the norm.  Inevitably,
some people will end up holding the short end of the stick with permanent makeup! You
have to ask yourself which end you want to be holding, the TOO DARK end or the TOO
LIGHT end?  It's unfortunate, but we will probably never know (in advance) who WILL
hold a lot of color and who will NOT. Either scenario could be YOURS! Which do you
think is easier to adjust? So please, DO NOT BE DISAPPOINTED, if YOURS happens to
be too light, because the cornerstone of our success, is from being conservative. So be
sure you have, the patience that we have, and are willing to stick with the plan.  

The reason that I have excelled in this field, is that I came into this profession with formal
art training. I have a natural eye for color and symmetry and because of this, I am able to
perform Permanent Cosmetics that DO NOT look like tattoos. There is a certain order,
colors should be applied and doing it all at once, cheapens the look, in my opinion.  

My goal, is to ONLY do realistic looking work, not PERFECT work.
 I find that TRUE
PERFECTION, lies in the ability to add just the right amount of imperfection, to create
something that does not attract a puzzling stare from others.
This is especifically true
of 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.  

So, yes... back to why you're here... You're SICK AND TIRED of struggling to maintain
something, that you used to not have to worry about, but you're scared, and you don't
want to end up with regrets.  So set up a FREE CONSULTATION and let's talk about
what we can do for you!  BUT FIRST, a reminder! Please be sure to read the following
pages thoroughly:

  • PLAN AHEAD
  • AFTERCARE
  • RISKS
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.
Back in April of 2014...
I was excited 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
ALLERGY SKIN TESTING IS RECOMMENDED - NO CHARGE:
Even if you have never experienced a skin reaction before,
you don't want YOUR FACE to be the first place it happens...
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!

LOOKING HAIR PROSTHETICS SYSTEM,

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.

Regardless of the procedure are you are
interested. It all boils down to this. I
am an artist, and your SKIN is my
canvas. But it's not paper! It's 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.  

EACH PROCEDURE IS BASICALLY
EXPERIMENTAL
and it could take
multiple sessions to complete. 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!
