    • I Want To Book But (after 1 year) I'm Still Not Sure.

      Seeing as though I will endeavour to be 100% honest with you in all my blogs......this is what I truly think when I hear this comment (and I hear this alot) .... 'well if you’re not sure after 1 year, then you don't really want to book'. Cosmetic enhancements or tattooing or whatever it is you want to call it is not for everyone. I know when I had my brows tattooed (way before it became so big), I was so sick of having to pencil my brows in every day. I was so sick of worrying about smudging or sweating or wiping my face (just in case I wiped the brow pencil away). I was prepared to pay whatever it took to never have to deal with this on a daily basis. Was it a first world problem, definitely not, but it was my problem and I really did not enjoy it. My point is, if you are still 'unsure', I highly recommend you invest in a good powder/pencil or fortnightly eyebrow tints & life goes on....however, if you've done your research & if you value your time & want to invest in yourself - make the booking. Just do it. It’s not that hard. You will be ok. You will love it. trust me, I know.

    • 3D Nipple & Areola Tattoo - How & Why?

      Paramedical & Scar Camouflage - the whole reason that I decided to become a Cosmetologist. This is the truth. I cannot honestly remember the 'light bulb' moment. Perhaps it was when I discovered that the service was not available locally or when it was during a time in my life where I was ready to leave my current job (corporate world) & focus more on a job that would ignite my passion for creativity & fulfill my personal satisfaction. I guess it doesn't matter when, I am just so elated that it did. The training pre-requisites were as follows: 1 - Cosmetic Tattoo Design & Maintain course 2 - Maintain Infection Control course 3 - 1 year min of Cosmetic Tattoo experience 4 - Paramedical & Scar Camouflage course I didn't care how long it took or what I had to pay. I just had to do it. So many of us place so much of our energy into ensuring that those we love & care for are safe & protected that we often become background noise. Learning to untangle the web we created is not easy (and it can suck) but once we have an understanding of ourselves; why we behave the way we do - it is then that we can comfortably put our needs & desires first. When I am immersed in this type of creation, I am literally in another world. Watching the 3D nipple/areola tattoo unfold right before my eyes is purely magical. This type of creation isn't only about studying, reading or watching - its about practice, practice practice and of course most importantly; having a creative mind. Being empathetic, patient & gentle. It is a niche. It is not easy, however, for me it is everything. When I first meet my patients (or heroes if you like), I am often greeted with anxiousness and vulnerability. So many have already been traumatised by the cancer they had to fight, all of them so happy to be alive - yet getting a tattoo is always so unsettling. I understand this. I really do. Up to this stage, not having a nipple/areola was not a concern. Most have mentioned that 'once the dust settled' it was then that they felt that something was taken from them. They wanted it back. They wanted to feel 'whole & normal' to not be 'reminded' of their battle each time they were naked. To be able to give this gift to someone is somehow like - how can I explain it.....you know that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you've done a good deed, or when you see a beautiful moment unfold right in before your eyes; it is abit like that - but better !!!! This is my How & Why. I would like to acknowledge Dr Palasovski (Oncoplastic surgeon), Ann & Lynda (Breast Cancer Support Nurses) for being kind & supportive. For giving an 'underdog' a go. I appreciate you. Special thanks to my husband, son & wonderful friends who put up with me during this transition. I was such a miserable person (like a dragon lady type of miserable). Sorry. I love you all.

    • Semi-Permanent vs Permanent (Tattoo)

      We are not tattoo parlours. We are more like distant cousins or inlaws. We are all professional, artistic & creative in our own rights but we are not the same! On numerous occasions (actually 90% of the time), when I tell people what I do for work, I get similar reactions 'Oh that's great but ohhh a tattoo, it freaks me out just thinking about it' or 'I'd love to get my eyebrows done but I'm so scared of the thought of a needle on my face'...... I highly (like times a million) recommend that you research, research, research. It's best to know all the details so that you can make an informed decision I've outlined some very important points below: * The depth of the penetration of the skin differs. Semi-permanent tattoos touch the epidermis (top thin layer of the skin - this is why you require a refresh). Permanent tattoos go deeper into the hypordermis (this is why they are a permanent option) * Semi-permanent tattoos are created using pigments. Permanent tattoos are created using ink * The semi-permanent tattoo (once healed) will give you a more natural appearance * Semi-permanent tattoos are created using a rotary machine (I don't microblade, I only use a machine). The means that the needles will penetrate the epidermis of the skin (unlike permanent tattoos that penetrate much deeper into the hypodermis) By doing your research (or reading mine) & by understanding the semi-permanent process you can feel more at ease about making the decision to get one. If you're still unsure, then perhaps this service is not for you!
