Imagine a life where your makeup can be at the bottom of your list of worries throughout the day and night! 


With Permanent Makeup & Cosmetic Tattooing you never have to worry about:


-smudging your eyebrows at an important event, party, interview or while at the beach

-messing up your makeup while at the gym or during an intense workout

-being in public after a movie like Titanic, The Notebook, Old Yeller, Les Miserables, etc.

-getting your kissable lipstick on anyone's cheeks (your kids will appre...

I have had many clients who consider areola regimentation after surviving breast cancer. 


Breast cancer is attacking the women in our country, and until we find a cure all we can do is pray, hope and love on those who are fighting this horrible disease. Twenty five years ago I began my business in Orange County and San Francisco. I of course did permanent makeup, corrective work and scar camouflaging; however, the other side of my work was helping breast cancer survivors gain confidence in the...

The latest beauty trend can't be found at any cosmetic counter. Semi-permanent makeup has so far crept under the radar, but it's continuing to make a huge mark in the beauty industry. Athena Karsant, internationally renowned paramedical and cosmetic tattoologist, dishes about this growing movement.



"Clients, both men and women, are looking for a natural enhancement that doesn't leave them looking tattooed," Athena says. Semi-permanent makeup is the process of tattooing natural pigments just bel...

- Do you have an embarrassing scar that you are uncomfortable with? 

- Do you have a scar that brings back old memories from an accident, surgery or negative time in your life? 

- Do you have acne scars on your face/body or stretch marks from a pregnancy or weight gain?

- Are you unhappy with the tattletale signs from plastic surgery? 


Are you aware that these scars can be camouflaged?

Three common concerns about permanent makeup & cosmetic tattooing:


1) Is it painful?


While everyone has a different pain threshold, most clients feel nothing, some feel a slight tickle and few feel a minor, tolerable, discomfort.

Caffeine can make you jittery and uncomfortable during a procedure.

I had a new client who came in with no eyebrows. She must have had 2 or 3 hairs where each of her brows used to be. After her first session, she was incredibly pleased that she was leaving my office with a beautiful set of new eyebrows. 




As we age and mature, we experience something that all women know about… gravity. Defying gravity is a tough one but I feel that if you have a secret to aging you must share it with the world. When we "mature" the skin above our eyes tends to droop down a...
