— And do you prefer any certain sort of pigments? — I like both «Kolorsourse» pigments and «LI pigments». These are the pigments that I’m currently using. — Do you think it’s easier to make mistakes (for example, to damage the skin) when microblading, or it’s more likely with the use of digital machines? — Well, for me personally it is easier to perform microblading. I’m not heavy-handed; however, I think that in general mistakes are more often made with the use of digital machines. — Do you ever mix the two methods? — To be honest with you — no, never. — You’re a purist. — I’m a perfectionist, that’s for sure.
she’s modelling now. I think it’s really cool when you can be a part of something like that and see what yourhard work can translate to. I have those kinds of moments all the time. I do a lot of tattooing for people going through chemotherapy. I see that this disease takes away people’s confidence. Being able to give it back a little gives me such an amazing feeling. — Do you charge for cancer patients? — I do. As a cancer survivor myself I feel it’s important to have compassionate pricing for people who have or had cancer. In Canada depending on the healthcare insurance provider some of this may be covered as well. — What about areolas? — I also have compassionate pricing for areolas. I have an eyebrow program running right now. We invite people who can’t afford permanent eyebrow makeup to send their stories in to us and then we pick one story and this person gets eyebrows free of charge. — How often do you do that?
— W hat’s your proudest moment in the permanent makeup?
— Once every three months when the promotion is running.
— I have a few. I would probably have to say off the top of my head it was a 14-year-old girl with a cleft lip (photo on the next page); she was not able to get over the fact that she had that scarring and it’s disfiguration. We injected «Juvederm», then we tattooed the lip line, microneedled her scar and gave her an entirely new lip. Her and her mom came back to tell us that
— It’s a great idea! And back to that girl with the lip, how long did it take for her?

— I have worked on her lip twice and I just recently did a color boost on her, the pigment’s staying in really well. — What schools have you been to? — I originally went to «BioTouch» training and took some classes in Los Angeles. I’ve been a part of Dr. Dixon’s boot camps and I’ve also been a speaker in Las Vegas regarding medical tattooing. Let’s talk about anesthetics. What anesthetics are in your opinion the best? — I like a few of them, for example anesthetics by «Kolorsource», and also some of «BioTouch» anesthetics. — Do you work by yourself? Do you have a salon? — I have my own clinic and I have a full-time client service coordinator who runs the front-end so that I can just come in and focus on my clients. — How many days of work on average do you have? — I would say that in average it would be four working days a week.
