If you've received work on your brows elsewhere, I need to see you BEFORE you book your session. There is a 20 minute consultation on the online booking tab for people with existing eyebrow tattoos not applied by me. The $35 consultation fee will be applied to your service if we move forward, but I will not work on you unless I see you for a consultation first to discuss your options and if I can even help.

JoHanna is a MO-licensed tattooist and esthetician with over 6 years of experience in cosmetic brow services. She has advanced training in Fitzpatrick Skin Types and pigment color theory to formulate browns that heal to a natural tone and not "too cool" (blues, greens and greys) or saturated in the skin type she is working with.
She also holds a 40hr CLS (Certified Laser Specialist) to fix undesired shape and color of old microblading or powder brow tattoos that color correction cannot fix.
It is painless, non-invasive to the skin, no downtime, and will allow for the new pigment and shape to be mapped out to perfection and applied after 8 weeks post-laser removal. The laser light passes harmlessly through the skin without creating additional scar tissue or hyperpigmentation to the brows that saline and LiFt removal solutions will cause due to using a tattoo machine to open the epidermis, pushing the solutions into the old pigment, out into the blood and scabs. For more information and videos, go to the Pico Laser Removal tab HERE. Sometimes, starting over or having the old work significantly lightened is the best way to get the results you want vs trying to cover them up with more pigment because it usually doesn't fix the issues of primary concern.
This manual technique is not for thin, textured, oily or sundamaged skin. A blade cuts open the epidermal layer and implants pigment right below it, on top of the dermis, with a "blade" constructed of several tiny pins, perpendicular to the skin. The individual pins are how the hairstrokes are created once healed in. This procedure is NOT suitable for a lot of skin types because of the damage it causes to the skin, effecting healed color results and how crisp the lines are. It is also will not blend out dense patches of hair. For more details, read the blog linked above. Average maintenance for this procedure, once initial 2 sessions are complete is around 12-16 months, depending on skin type, lifestyle and type of pigment used in the skin. CLICK HERE for pricing
This is a filled in look, just like brow powder creates, with a dark to light gradient in the bulb for a soft transition into the skin without any harsh lines. Depending on your preferred level of saturation, they can be super soft with less passes and diluted pigment up to fully saturated like a brow pomade would be. Most people prefer to be in the middle with a soft powder effect that most people can maintain with a session every 2 years.
Ombre Powder Brows
This is a combination of hair strokes at the beginning of the brow transitioning into microshading from the body of the brow through the tail. This is the most popular cosmetic brow procedure because you get the long lasting effects of the powder brow in the areas you need to enhance the most (your arch and tail) combined with the artistry and natural lines of microblading in the bulb. Normal maintenance once initial 2 sessions are complete is around 2 years, depending on skin type, lifestyle and type of pigment used in the skin.
