With an art degree, apprenticeships in New York City and Los Angeles, and more than 7 years of tattoo experience, artist Michelle trusts her skill, but not enough start a tattoo without thoroughly preparing. This all-important, often-hurried step, involves consulting with clients ahead of time so she can understand not only the logistics of the tattoo?where it will go, what it will look like?but also the inspiration behind it. With this knowledge, she feels she's better able to create custom work that's reflective of their significance. She excels especially at incorporating bodily scars into new images or reimagining old or unwanted tattoos.
Backed by a quarter-century?s worth of experience, Tracey and her staff at Pittsburgh Permanent Makeup & Laser Center zap away unwanted ink and make skin appear more youthful with paramedical aesthetic services. For tattoo removal, they utilize laser technology in a process that breaks ink particles into tiny fragments for the body to remove naturally. An expert makeup artist applies permanent makeup to brows, lids, and lips, and a certified collagen induction therapist administers collagen-induction therapy, which can reduce or eliminate the appearance of lines stemming from general aging. Their esthetician helps clients solve common and uncommon skin issues.
