Permanent Make-up Services

Karma can complete or recreate your eyebrows with natural long lasting hairline looking techniques.
She can outline your eyes or create a thicker eyeliner look. Give your lips a boost with gentle color applied to bring a healthy youthful look.


Eyebrows are the frame of the face. Having the right shape can take years off or just give you a wonderful sexy eyebrow that opens your eyes and gives you a finished look.


Eyeliner is a wonderful way to make your lashes look fuller and can add definition to the eye. It is very important that this is done with ocular topical and that you are completely numb for the procedure.

Full Lips

Full lip color can create the look of a fuller shape and bring back a youthful color to the lips. I have a dentist beside my shop that can do a lip block if desired.


Lips can be beautifully enhanced with permanent makeup with a very natural appearance. Bringing color back to the lips and adding a little to the shape can be a huge improvement.

Scalp Enhancement

I can minimize the look of the scalp by creating fine hairlines that flow with the natural hair growth pattern.

Areola Repigmentation

This is for those who have undergone reconstructive surgeries such as, enlargements, reductions or breast cancer.
