Powder Brows

This technique mimics the effect you achieve when you use a brow powder or pencil. It offers a solid appearance as the pigment is applied using a technique that covers the brow area from the inner brow though to the tail in one block color. It adds depth, definition, and results in a more "made up" look. When healed, you will enjoy a permanent, defined but soft powdered look. Your artist will carefully select a pigment and blend to perfection, complimenting your skin tone and hair color to achieve a natural, powdery look.

Lash line Enhancement

A Lash Line Enhancement subtly adds definition and color to your lash line to create the appearance of thicker and darker lashes. After numbing the area, your artist will use an advanced European tool called the Nouvea Contour to carefully implant microdots between your lashes to emphasis your lash line for a soft natural look.


3D Areola Repigmentation


is a tattooing technique to restore the look of a real areola.

Most common for woman that have gone through breast cancer but can also help woman affected by other areola conditions.




Vicky is an internationally acclaimed 3D Areola tattooist from the UK.

Vickys method combines a variety of techniques and only those that have been certified with the VMM are trained to do this very advanced method that is 3D and leaves a very real and natural looking outcome. 

I am twice certified with the VMM and took her course and her Advanced course at one of the best training schools in Boston,Prettyology,with Vicky Martin & Julie Michaud.
