I attended the PMU School in New York City. After completing a short course, I realized no matter how or what you call it, Permanent Makeup is a tattoo. I decided to make the sacrifice to become a true tattoo artist. Which was to take an apprenticeship in a tattoo studio for over 2 years. Making this decision was socially hard in our society, as you can imagine. But as the years went by, I Learned the right way, the only way to tattoo. I hope it shows in my work after 16 years. I have a great sense of pride and a well known reputation. I believe in what I do, and approach the art of tattooing the right way. Any thing worth having is worth waiting for, and you don't develop a good reputation overnight.
