Request a complimentary


In a very unregulated industry with technicians who can make unsupported claims, we wanted to share with you testimonies from real people, with real stories and real experiences. There are thousands of cosmetic tattooists in the industry, and they all have positive reviews on their websites. However, if you look at most sites, you will see only a handful of written testimonies. Athena's work is considered by many to be the best in the industry, and we believe that our pages and pages of reviews justifies that claim. We have not seen anyone else in the cosmetic tattooing industry who comes even close to the number of positive reviews that Athena has. We hope that these testimonies by our clients help you to rest assured that Athena will take care of you and give you the best possible procedure.

I consulted Athena because I wanted to improve my eyebrow profile. Many people don't realize that eyebrow appearance can radically affect the expression in the eyes and face. As a writer and someone who travels and makes public appearances, facial expressiveness is important to me. Modern eyebrow tattoing is not the old "sharpee-looking" technique of years ago. Now, a fine, precise needle is used...

Don't look any further!

I've been seeing Athena for over 5 years and I can say with experience she is by far the best permanent makeup artist in California! Seriously she has an artists eye and her skill in being able to give me the prettiest eyebrows!  Her office is beautiful and easy to get too! Treat yourself!

Athena was everything i had hoped for. I was very nervous at first doing permanent makeup but Athena took her time and cared for me throughout the whole process. She is amazing and great and cant thank her enough. I would recommend her to anybody

I came to Athena to treat some scars that I had from a childhood accident.  I had tried everything - lasers, micropen, makeup - nothing worked. Nothing was truly effective. I found Athena through a Google search. She is the most amazing cosmetic, corrective and paramedical tattoo specialist on the planet. My scars are now unnoticeable. 

Athena isn't cheap, but she is worth every penny. Ov...

I was in search of someone who could help me with some hypo pigmentation scars that were left on my skin from acne which i have struggled with since my 20's. Enter Athena Karsant whom i found thru searching the internet. Athena's resume is impressive and when i left a message explaining my problem ,she got back to me later that day and scheduled my office visit. She not only educated me on how the...

Athena is a world class cosmetic make-up artist. Many people make the mistake of opting for surgery over making a consultation with Athena. Surgeries often times make things worse and with something as delicate and as easy to mess up as your face, why take the unrecoverable risk.

I had a scar on my eyebrow that she completely blended in. I am astonished by the surgical precision she had and how she...

Over 25 years ago I was infected with a nasty tropical disease that left circular scars all over my neck and chest. Age was making the scars even worse, so I visited Athena to see if she had a solution. Masking the scars has turned out to be tricky, but Athena is extremely patient and persistent. She knows what she's doing, and she's not happy with her work until you're happy with her work.

I am not the kind of person who normally leaves reviews .... But I am so delighted with the results of my appointment with Athena, that I felt compelled to share my experience. 

I can honestly say the thought of having permanent makeup applied to my face did make me a bit nervous, I have seen enough people with brows gone wrong....but the desire to "Fool Mother Nature" outweighed my nervousness....

I started using Athena's facial line recently. I have switched on and off from high end brand names to drug store products and have never found anything that made my skin look and feel the way this line does. 

Currently I use the milky cleaner, cucumber toner, moisturizer and exfoliant. I have never been happier and my skin has cleared up tremendously, feels smooth, no bumps, hydrated and flawless....

I have had cosmetic tattooing by different people over the past 30 years. Fortunately, I was referred to Athena Karsant by a trusted friend a little over a year ago. Athena is not only technically masterful, but artistically gifted, and she was able to modify my eyeliner, eyebrows, and lips to not only better accentuate my features but to do it in a way that was graceful. Still working in my late...

I have had an amazing experience with Athena. I have had several chicken pox scars on my face since I was a child. They have always bothered me, but no doctor offered a solution that did not have the potential of making things worse. At last (decades later) my dermatologist suggested I see Athena and ask her opinion. After seeing my scars Athena told me to give her a year - I was nervous but began...

Athena Karsant is a great artist. She is incredibly skilled and talented. Whether the fine, natural brush strokes of the tattoo "pen" or her choice of color palette to match your hair and complexion she identifies, enhances and beautifies your natural best, most gorgeous self. And she is charming, fun, agreeable to work with. I highly recommend her.

I have always had dark lips and wanted to get a permanent color that was lighter. After researching for months, I decided to go with Athena, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.


Athena was warm, attentive, patient and above all - caring. She walked me through what the process involves, set my expectations at a reasonable level, and then gave me her undivided attention for the duration...

Words alone cannot express how talented Athena is at what she does.

March 7, 2016

I chose Athena to treat me scar on my doctor's recommendation. Athena put me at east immediately. I was told it could take anywhere from one to more treatments - everybody is different. I've followed her diretions and am seeing excellent results. Athena has enthusiasm for her work and her clients. She is talented, friendly, professional and excellent at what she does. And, more importantly, she ha...
