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?)
(IT'S HAPPENED...)  
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... :) 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.
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, 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.
Just an FYI...
TEXTING IS ALWAYS BEST FOR ME...  
...since I don't answer the phone when I'm working on clients. So please
send a message stating your interests and the best time to call you
back. If you are ready to schedule a consultation, allergy skin test or
appointment, please text me 2-3 dates and times and I'll reply bach with
which one works for me.
The best times for me to actually talk, are
mornings from 8:00-10:00, and evenings from 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.  
MY APOLOGIES... 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... and I will get back with you.
Thank you very much for understanding and trying again!
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!
THE MAIN THING TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT Any
time I inject MY ART into YOUR HUMAN BODY
there is going to be a reaction.
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.  

But since my approach is conservative, I am
confident that together, we will create something
beautiful!  You have my word that I try to 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.
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!

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 from COOPERATING with
THE PROCESS!  My part is only ONE part of the
whole mix... The rest is up to you and your body
to get things to heal in properly.  
So read on... 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.  
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.  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.
I was honored to
have been asked by
Lauren Freeman of
Channel 2 News
to
do a segment on
MicroHair
Simulation back in
April of 2014.
NEWS FLASH!!!  CIT - Collagen Induction Therapy (also
known as Medical Skin Needling for the treatment of wrinkles, sun damage and scars
WORKS at a fraction of the cost of laser treatments. See details on Menu
I know there is a lot of information to absorb
here, and it can be repetitive at times...
but
there are some points that just need to be
reinforced.
I really hope everyone will take full advantage of
this information, because there are not enough
hours in the day to relay it verbally, or otherwise.  

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
    appointment.

  • Remember... the ART I create is placed
    INTO (living, breathing, moving) human
    skin cells, not onto paper or canvas.

  • 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. 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
    procedure.

  • 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
    AHEAD page.

  • 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. Like...
    IF YOU FALL ASLEEP ON YOUR                 
    RIGHT EYEBROW, YOUR RIGHT
    EYEBROW WILL NEED MORE WORK
    THAN YOUR LEFT ONE!

  • 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.
