Permanent makeup can enhance your life! Wake up with makeup perfectly applied every day. Anyone who wants to improve their appearance and have the convenience of lip color, eyebrows and eyeliner that won’t rub off, smudge or smear can enjoy the benefits of micropigmentation.

For Eyebrow Microblading contact us to discuss your options.

Permanent makeup or cosmetic tattooingis meant to enhance your natural features and not necessarily look like topical make-up. Imagine applying your make-up as a choice instead of a necessity.

Permanent eyebrows that are too light, sparse, or nonexistent, can be beautifully enhanced and improved with micropigmentation. Eyebrows are important because they frame your eyes and give your face expression.

Camouflage is another helpful application of micropigmentation. Color is added to the skin to soften and blend the color of a scar to match the surrounding tissue. This technique is also useful to correct loss of skin pigmentation, to minimize facelift scars, and to recreate nipple and areola areas after breast reconstruction surgery.

Marcia has been practicing the art of permanent make-up since 1995, after apprenticing with Yvonne Ray of Concord, NC. Marcia became a certified Permanent Make-Up Technician upon receiving advanced training in 1999 with The American Institute of Permanent Color Technology of California.

Model Goes Blind After Tattooing Eyeball, Warns Others of …09.29.17

Updated|Twenty-four year old Catt Gallingers fun excursion into body art ended in horror when an eye tattoo left her partially blinded and oozing purple tears. The tattoo was meant to have tinted her sclera, the white part of her eye, but instead went terribly wrong, causing pain and possible permanent impairment. Nowthe young modelis sharing her story in the hopes that others wont make her same mistake.

In a post shared several thousand times on Facebook, Gallinger, who is from Canada, explained how a recent attempt to tint the whites of her eye purple has nearly cost her vision, The Independent reported. According to Gallinger, the artistdid not dilute the ink, injected too much of it into her eye, and did not have enough injection sites on her eyeball. All this caused the eye to swell and the ink to seep out.

Immediately after the procedure, Gallinger knew something was wrong. She was rushed to her local hospital, where she received antibiotic eye drops for a week and a half. The drops did not help the problem and caused the eye to swell completely shut.

Steroid drops caused the injection to form a clump around the cornea area,The Daily Mail reported. Gallinger is unable to see properly out of the injected eye, needs to see a specialist, and is at risk of becoming permanently blind.

Gallinger may suffer permanently from the repercussions of this botched eye tattoo. According to Dr. David Flug, an ophthalmologist working in New York, the practice is unsafe and extremely dangerous. Photo Courtesy of Facebook/Catt Gallinger

The practice of tinting the white of the eye is fairly new and slowly gaining popularity throughout the world. According to Dr. David Flug, an ophthalmologist working in New York, the practice is unsafe and extremely dangerous.

Related: Solar eclipse is a memorable spectacle, but heres how to make it safe on the eyes

Basically my feeling is that its insane. It can be done, but it has no long-term testing for safety. You have to be nuts to do it, Flug told Newsweek .

Even Luna Cobra, the man credited with first making the procedure popular a little over 10 years ago, agrees that it is unsafe. In fact, hes even working to help make it illegal.

Ive been trying to ban this. I think its super important that this becomes illegal, Cobra told Newsweek. To be clear, this is happening all the time, all over the world.

According to Cobra, he is the first artist to have refined the procedure that completely tattoos the whites of the eye. When he first began doing this procedure he would film it, and he told Newsweek that this led to many copycat artists trying to replicate his work. Unfortunately, these copycats were not as well trained as Cobra and as a result, the procedure often ends badly.

I didnt think people would think so lightly of this [tattooing the eye].” said Cobra. I thought they would take it more serious. It looks like people are not taking it so serious.

Dr. Stephanie A. Castle, an optometrist at Park City Vision in Utah told Newsweek that, when done wrong, not only do these tattoo pose a risk to patients vision, but they can also interfere with a doctors ability to help treat them.

It blacks your eye doctors ability to view ocular structures-which provide us with important information about eye health and systemic health, wrote Castle. In some cases theres a danger of patients having to have an eye enucleated (removed) because of infection and pain.

Since the initial procedure, Gallinger has updated her Facebook page with a post stating that her vision has improved in the past few weeks. But she says medical professionals have informed her that she will likely never completely regain complete eyesight in the damaged eye.

According to Metro, Gallinger insists she is not sharing her story to cause trouble but rather to warn others who may be contemplating their own eyeball tattoo. Research who you get your procedures by as well as how the procedure should be properly done, writes Gallinger.

Or you could just follow Cobra and Flugs advice and not get the procedure done at all in the first place.

Udated: This article has been updated to include quotes from Luna Cobra andto include comments fromDr. Stephanie A. Castle on further possible damage from sclera tattoos.

Mastering the art of tattoos – Kokomo Herald (press release)09.07.17

Jerry Frost didnt set out to be a tattoo artist when he was younger, but some well-laid plans in art school paved the way to a successful career in the industry.

For the past two decades, Frost has been responsible for the body art on countless customers at New Breed Tattoo and Piercing, where he works as the owner.

The beginning of his career dated back to his time in art school when he and a buddy of his liked getting tattoos and aspired of inking others someday. The pair believed they could step into the industry if they did it right.

We thought we could do it and took baby steps because it was the early 90s. It wasnt like today. There wasnt a lot of help, Frost said. For the most part, it was more of an issue of most people that were into tattoos werent that artistic. There were people at the national level that were popular and respected, but at a local level, thats what me and buddy thought, that they werent that good at art to begin with. It was something we could do. Time went by, and I slowly got into it and got a job somewhere.

Frost was creating art on the human canvas, a slight difference from his old ways of pencil and paper, although he said that switching from pencil to a tattoo needle was similar in some ways.

You are drawing on a flat surface with pencil and paper. You have to get used to the three-dimension shape. Its something you acquire after so long, he said. You have one shot.

He acquired a job tattooing and quit his job as a pizza delivery guy. He didnt look back. His work is that of realism, a technique he picked up working with a guy who was solid in creating life-like images on the skin.

If I hadnt worked with him, I may not have gotten some of the tricks that lead to the realism, said Frost. People were gravitating more toward artsy realism, so I was trying to keep up with what people were asking for. I guess I just got lucky that I was around somebody that got me that way.

He said, as a tattoo artist, he will tackle any type of tattoo, from simple work to very detailed work. Some tattoos can be completed in a short time frame, while other larger pieces can rack up many hours in the chair.

There have been some back pieces that were maybe 80 to 100 hours in total. I guess I never keep track of hours. The very most Ive ever worked on someone was six to eight hours by the time you take a break or grab something to eat, he said. Most people are done after three to four hours. Some days you might work a little longer, some less.

Frost credits the online world to opening many doors to tattoo artists across the globe to learning new techniques and seeing some cool work.

The same thing that beat up the music industry helped tattooing. Its the access to all the images and people being able to get with you and see your work on a phone. Back in the 90s when I started out, it was still very much where people would walk in, pick something off the wall and go, he said. Now, most everything is custom. It used to be where you would go into a Barnes and Noble and pick up a book of what you think people would like. Those books are at home now. Back in the 90s, you might have been friends with a couple people in town, but now I can look at guys work in Russia or Poland.

Getting tattooed is more mainstream than ever, and Frost said that most of the work that comes into New Breed is custom work. Most people that come into his shop know what they want, and he rarely has to give advice against getting a certain tattoo done. The only time he interjects is if the detail is too tight or a customer is asking for the tattoo to be placed somewhere it will not hold up.

Thats the only time I talk to them about really thinking it out, he said.

In addition to new work, cover up work is a prevalent aspect to the business.

Tattoos deteriorate and dont look as good in the long run, said Frost. You cant just power a new one over the top. You have to be clever with what you do, and not all cover-ups are possible. For some, we might recommend people to get lasered at the shop once or twice to open up that process of more clever ideas.

Frost said the market is competitive, and those wishing to enter the field will have to work hard at it.

Just like if you want to be a good football player, you practice all the time. I know people who want to tattoo, and I tell them they need to hone their own art, he said. They need to draw and draw and draw. There was a renaissance in the 90s into the early 2000s. The tools that a younger person would use are all over the place. Today, I wouldnt say its easy. Its more competitive because there are so many. Long ago, there werent that many. There are a lot of people now, so you really have to work hard to outshine the others. I got in while it was growing in popularity.

What is microblading? – News-Press Now09.06.17

Eyebrows are arguably the most important feature on our face. Many women spend countless amounts of time and money on products to make them on point, including eyebrow pencils, color, tweezing, waxing and tattooing.

But there’s a new way of accentuating eyebrows that has a lot of women intrigued microblading.

It’s basically a tattoo, said Courtney V. Pina of Surreal Tattoo Studio in Kansas City, Missouri. It’s a form of cosmetic tattoo, technically semi-permanent.

Microblading is done with a hand tool with a blade. Pina said it basically makes micro splits in the eyebrows to give the optical illusion of hairs that mimic eyebrow hair.

You’re just making slices into the skin and the ink lays in the skin, Pina said. Tattooing pushes the ink into the skin.

Pina, who owns Surreal Tattoo with her husband, has been tattooing for years. She said that the microblading tool works best because a tattoo needle can be too thick.

Microblading results can last from one to three years, but everyone’s skin is different, Pina said.

This is why she includes a first session and a touch up in the price.

That way I can see how the brows are healing, she said. I’ve had clients that it just fell out, which could’ve been her beauty regime or her skin rejecting it, which is normal. Others, it stayed in perfectly.

To begin, lidocaine cream sits for about 30 minutes to an hour for numbing. Pina then maps out the brows. From there, she performs the first pass with the microblading tool, and while the ink is settling in, she mixes a lidocaine gel and epinephrine to sink in. This is done so the second pass doesn’t hurt.

Some people feel it, she said. It feels like tweezing or a paper cut.

She said the pain scale is about a three to five for the first pass. A day later, the eyebrows are less sore.

Pina recommends researching who is performing their procedure because there are a lot of untrained and unskilled people doing microblading.

(The microblading tool) is so easy to get your hands on and doesn’t cost very much, she said. Some people are doing it without credentials. Don’t be afraid to ask for before and after pics. Look at their reviews on social media.

Pina, for example, has education and experience under her belt. The licensed tattoo artist is Missouri certified and is also a licensed esthetician.

Microblading certification is a three-day course where individuals learn the basics, but she believes that’s not enough time.

If (the cost) is under $300, just be aware, she said.

Pina said that she is able to charge a lower fee because of owning her shop. But microblading can cost as much $800.

Can getting a tattoo be a spiritual experience? I tried it to find out – Well+Good09.06.17


I always laugh when people ask about my tattoos, then back off and say, Or maybe you dont want to talk about it. Of course I want to talk about it. I had something drawn permanently on my body. You dont think I have a story to tell?

They reveal who I am, reflect journeys Ive made and the person Ive become: Take the lotus-blossom motif I got after a retreat in India, which I half-jokingly refer to as my divorce tattoo.That one was healing and empoweringas were the others before and after. (I have five in all.) Which is why, when I found myself traveling in Thailand earlier this year, I jumped at the chance to sit for a sak yant (AKA sacred tattooing) session with Arjarn Boo, a former monk who studied with the master who did one of Angelina Jolies pieces.

He determined that what I needed was a specific prayer signifyinga blessing that I would be better able to receive and give kindness.

Hes now the resident tattoo artist at the luxurious Siam Hotelin Bangkok, but Arjarn Boolearned the ancient art form (which dates back over 2,000 years) in a monastery. Monks traditionally perform the tattoos (known for their intricate patterns, geometric shapes, and animal or deity designs) on one another in order to impart blessings and prayers for things like health, protection, or fortune.

When I met with him, we spoke through a translator, and he determined that what I needed was a specific prayer, written in the sacred language, signifyinga blessing that I would be better able to receive and give kindness. He didnt know anything about my lifeand barely even spoke Englishbut his idea turned out to be spot on.


Id very recently moved from New Yorkmy home of 20 yearsto Lisbon, and found the transition harder than Id expected(thanks in part to my complicated romantic relationship). So, Id left to attend the embracing change program at Kamalaya, a remote wellness resort on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand. There, I realized Id been so hung up on the things that were frustrating or disappointing or difficult about life in Portugal that Id lost sight of the fact that a lot of kindness was being extended to me. Enter Arjarn Boo with his blessing.

Was it coincidence or divine intervention? IDK. But what I did know was that understanding how hed settled on this particular prayerhe doesnt offer clients a lot of explanation or choice on the sak yant itself (other than size and location)didnt feel so important as I sat in his studio amongst his Buddha statues, lotus blossoms, incense, candles, and water offerings. What mattered more was that my tattoo, located on my right forearm (I wanted it in a place where I could see it), would be a single, long line rather than the more common pattern of five or seven shorter ones typically used in the tradition. After a (brief) discussion, followed by prayers, offerings, and blessings,Arjarn Booshy, reserved, and wearing all whitequietly set to work.

I was relieved to find that the procedure, hand-done, with a traditional long needle, turned out to be no more painful than a tattoo with an electric one.

While in moderntattooing, artists generally tracethedesignon special paper, transfer that drawing to the skin, and then go over it with a needle, he simply drew a straight line on my forearm and used it as a guide ashe freehanded the actualtattoo tapby tap. (Forearms are really hard, FYI, because of the way your ulna and radius rotate and the skin moves around, so straight line down the middle ends up being kind of subjective.) Anyway, that made it seem like he was drawing with confidence and maybe even intuition.

And I was relieved to find that the procedure, hand-done, with a traditional long needle, turned out to be no more painful than a tattoo with an electric one (which is commonly compared to a cat scratchalbeit one thats deep, slow, extended, and repeated). This was less intenseit felt like a series of pinpricksand he took a lot of breaks to add ink to the needle.

More than the pain, what I noticed was thequiet. Other than thetranslator occasionally asking me if I was holding up all right, there was really no noise during my 30-minute session. Without the unpleasant drone of an electric needle, I was able to reflect on the meaning of the tattoo, my intentions for it, and my choice to invest in it. (Sak yant as the Siam Hotel costs between $900 and $1,800 USD.) The lack of soundalong with the offerings I made at the altar and the prayers Arjarn Boo intonedheightened the experience. But could it be called spiritual?


Historically, sak yants been more about divine blessings than internal, personal growth. But Arjarn Boo tells me it can be both. It depends on the behavior of the wearer, he explains. What matters most is the self-discipline and morality of the [individual]if they think good, speakgood, and do good, good things will return to [them]. So, basically become a boomerang for positive vibes.

And its not just ancientsocieties (think: Maori people of New Zealand, who have a form of skin art known as MOKO, as well as other Buddhist traditions) for whom tattooing can be a divine act. In contemporary, Western culture, getting inkedcan be sacred, too, says Gabe Crenshaw, PhD, a lecturer at the University of Southern California. The majority [of tattooers] exhibit a positive motivational basis for their behaviorthey seek a deeper spiritual experience that has tangible results, explains thepsychology expert who appeared on Ink Shrinks, a TV special about the potential healing power of permanent body artthat aired on SpikeTV in 2014.

Because endorphins produce feelings of well-being, the tattoo plays a significant role in the therapeutic process by providing relief from emotional pain.

Although theres little scientific research into the spiritual side effects of tattoos, studies have found that painful stimulation releases endorphins in the body. Because endorphins produce feelings of well-being, the tattoo plays a significant role in the therapeutic process by providing relief from emotional pain, relaxation, and clarity, says Dr. Crenshaw. So, would I still feel as happy and transformedonce the pain subsided?


Sometimes fresh tattoos bleed or are even a little scabby, but my arm was just slightly red when the session ended. And while you normally have to wrap a new piecein plasticfor a day, keep it absolutely dry, and sometimes even have to change that dressing as itoozes, Arjarn Boo said that wouldnt be necessary and would actually be counterproductive.

Instead, I was sentout with a pot of Vaseline (I know, I know, petroleum, but it was still ThailandI imagine any kind of mild unguent would have worked, but I didnt think to ask) that I was supposed to apply twice a day. I was told to avoid putting soap or shampoo on it for a week. And finally, in addition to the everyday healing directions, sak yant comes with lifelong after-care instructions: In my case, not eating star fruitnot a big sacrificeand not disrespecting anyones mother, which is generally a good policy.

And while I loved it then, I love it more nowespecially because I think its helped me; however, I also did a lot of my own emotional work. Since getting my sacred tattoo, Ive become better at accepting kindness (giving it has never been my problem, but I pay more attention to my opportunities to do so today) and happier with my life. Plus, I like telling the story.

Looking to do some energetic healing, heres what happened to another writer who tried intuitive tattooing. And this iswhy your permanent ink might be changingthe way you sweat.

New book chronicles rebirth of Inuit traditional tattooing – Nunatsiaq News09.05.17

NEWS: NunavutSeptember 05, 2017 – 11:30 am BETH BROWN

In traditional Inuit tattoos, there is a story in every line.

Thats why a new book by traditional tattoo artist Hovak Johnston will have more than one story line.

The book, to be released by Nunavuts Inhabit Media in November, tells the story behind tattoos on 26 Kugluktuk women which Johnston rendered during a visit to the Kitikmeot community in spring 2016 as part of her Inuit Tattoo Revitalization Project.

Its the womens stories of why they chose their markings and what their markings mean to them, Johnston told Nunatsiaq News, adding that her own story will also be in the book: Reawakening Our Ancestors Lines.

It was really important for me to have this project documented because it was the first of its kind, Johnston said. It is their own stories coming from themit was important to have the womens stories heard.

And what was her goal for the book itself?

I envisioned the beauty of the women, and showcasing their beauty, she said.

In the book, photographer Cora DeVos features that beauty with images taken throughout the tattoo process.

There was a lot of pride and trust in their eyes when the photos were being taken, said Johnston, who was recently honoured with a Meritorious Service Medal from the Governor General of Canada for her work breathing new life into the tattoo tradition.

The practice of traditional tattooing among Inuit women was largely dormant for the last century. That is, until recently, when artists such as Johnston awakened the art formoriginally a signpost of womanhood and thought to impart strength and guidance, she said.

While Johnstons efforts have been to revitalize the practice, she has also looked to modernize it, encouraging women to find new meaning in the lines they choose for their face, arms and hands.

I dont like to focus on the stuff that has been lost, she said, preferring to focus on how tradition and cultural practice can evolve.

After eight years spent honing her craft, Johnston is now beginning to train other women in the art of traditional tattooing.

Thats the goal, to get as many women training in each region. So we can have more Inuit women tattooing each other, she said.

She uses three techniques: needle and thread, stick and poke, as well as a tattoo gun.

The tattooed lineswhich can have layered meanings and often represent family, place or memoryleave many women with a truer sense of identity, Johnston said.

The practice of tattooing was shunned for so long that some Inuit women are reluctant to think they can be tattooed, she said.

Its so hard to see some of the women that dont feel Inuk enough, Johnston said. But when they learn more about the history (of Inuit tattooing) after hearing the story of how it was banned and shunned and how our traditions were taken away then they get that fire again. Just being here, we are Inuk enough.

Johnston plans to hold the launch of Reawakening Our Ancestors Lines in Kugluktuk.

Texomans get Texas tattoos for Harvey victims – KXII-TV09.04.17

SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) – Modified Design Tattoo & Piercing in Sherman did what they do best to give back to victims of Hurricane Harvey: they inked nearly 140 tiny outlines of Texas on people Sunday, all proceeds going to the relief efforts.

“It means I actually got a chance to help someone,” said Courtney Gaines. “That $20 can help someone who lost everything.”

Each tattoo, and some select piercings, were $20.

“Really all you do is come in, get a small one inch tattoo of Texas, it’s $20, we’re trying to knock out as many as we can,” said Caleb Stone, who has been tattooing for seven years.

Cody Collins, who lives in Sherman, decided to put Texas on his wrist after seeing the event online.

“I donated, I didn’t feel like it was enough,” Collins explained. “We saw this pop up on Facebook and it piqued my interest, so I decided to dedicate part of my body to those affected by Harvey.”

Another customer, Courtney Gaines of Tom Bean, said she loves the nontraditional way of helping out.

“It’s a really good to come as a community together to help with the hurricane,” Gaines said.

All week long, Texomans have been helping victims of the hurricanecalled the costliest and worst natural disaster in American History–whether it’s taking a boat down south, hosting a fundraiser, or getting a tattoo.

“Bless them for what they’re doing and everyone in this community,” Collins said about the special tattooing.

The event was supposed to go on until 8 p.m., but there was such a large turnout that the shop had to cutoff the line at 4 p.m.

Mum arrested after 12-year-old daughter shows off tattoo – 9Honey09.04.17

Mother Emma Nolan and tattoo artist Brenda Gaddy are facing charges over the new ink. Image: Coweta County Jail.

A US mother is facing criminal charges after her 12-year-old daughter has been spotted with a large tattoo on her shoulder at her primary school dance.

According to a police report, an officer was called to the primary school after a teacher at the dance spotted the tattoo. The tattoo, of a large cross and the words Jesus Loves was in full view thanks to the girl’s school dance outfit – a strapless dress.

The teacher described the tattoo as being, ‘bluish green with Jesus written above the cross and loves written below’.

When police tried to establish how the girl had come to be tattooed there was initial confusion. The fifth-grader told police that her father made her get the ink. Later, however, she changed her story and said that it was her choice to get the tattoo and her father had nothing to do with it.

The mother, 35-year-old Emma Nolan, stated that the girl no longer sees her father and that she had no idea how it had come to be.

Eventually it emerged that Emma did indeed know about her daughter’s tattoo.

One in seven Australians sport a tattoo of one kind or another. Video courtesy of Today.

Indeed, she not only encouraged the girl to get the ink, she arranged for it to happen at a Super Bowl party back in March. Video taken at the party shows aspiring tattoo artist Brenda Gaddy working on the 12-year-old, plus two other children under the age of 18, while several adults looked on.

Lt. Jason Fetner of the Coweta County Sheriffs office said the story was nothing more than ‘bad parenting’.

“Each of the parents had a different story, and it boiled down to, frankly, just finger-pointing, Fetner told a news station.

“I think its unfortunate in that the child actually wanted to get the tattoo. Its not like the child was forced to get the tattoo; I think it just comes down to bad parenting.”

Nolan and tattoo artist Brenda Gaddy were later booked into the Coweta County Jail for tattooing the body of any person under the age of 18.
