Athena tells every client that taking the time to research your physician, plastic surgeon and

cosmetic tattooist is imperative. It is necessary that you study the work of the doctor or

technician who you desire to work on you, request to see before and after photos, testimonials,

endorsements and feel completely comfortable with a common understanding of details

regarding your treatment or procedure. 


There are many permanent makeup artists and cosmetic tattooists, some of which are talented

but uneducated and untrained in color theory, and the study of an individual's body chemistry
