Artist Recommendations

Can we recommend artists in your area? 

Unfortunately, no... There are artists whom I admire, but since I do not know anything about them - or how they work, I can't (in good conscience)  recommend someone other than artists who work with me.  I do know this, there are no other artists that approach brows as we do.  Our style follows more of a freestyle effect, instead of the more traditional, very methodical approach.

 

When looking for an artist in your area, here are some questions to ask:

  • THE NUMBER ONE MOST IMPORTANT TIP I CAN OFFER IS THIS: 

    • When you find work that you like, request a consultation with THAT artist. Do not expect another artist to duplicate the work. 

  • So LOOK FOR A TRUE ARTIST!  If they can't draw on paper  - HOW CAN YOU TRUST THEM TO WORK ON LIVE SKIN?

  • Look at A LOT of pictures online and on Instagram. Find work that you love. Then request a list of referrals of clients (10-20) who are happy. (Anyone can provide a few good photos...).

  • The artist who does great work on clients with LITTLE TO NO eyebrows CONSISTENTLY might be a person you can trust. 

  • ARE THEY WORKING IN A LICENSED FACILITY? 

  • ARE THEY PRACTICING SAFE & SANITARY TECHNIQUES? What good are great brows, if you now have hepatitis?  or worse?

  • DO THEY TRAVEL TO YOUR HOME?  IF SO, THIS IS ILLEGAL. 

  • CAN THEY SHOW YOU MANY PHOTOS OF THEIR "HEALED" WORK?

  • Ask to see more pictures IN PERSON.   You have to be very careful and not just trust what you see online. People need to show you REAL photographs (in their camera), just to make sure that they didn't borrow (steal)  them from the Internet...  Unfortunately, that happens a lot...  

  • One major pitfall is... people normally only post their best work. Sounds normal, right?  The problem with this is SOME clients are super easier to work on, while others are extremely difficult.  DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU FIT INTO THAT EQUATION?

  • Look at A LOT of pictures online and on Instagram of work that you like.  Then request that the artist send you a list of 10-20 clients that are happy. Anyone can provide a few... but they need to offer more, so you will feel secure. Remember, a person who ONLY performs microblading is probably new in the field. So ask if they would mind showing you the portraits on their camera roll.  

  • After hearing those client referrals, then request a consultation with the artist. 

  • Ask to see more pictures IN PERSON.  Look at the photos on their phone or camera.  You have to be very careful and not just trust what you see online. Also, if you see the original photos you know for sure that they didn't borrow (steal)  them from the Internet...  Unfortunately, that happens a lot...  

  • Most people only post "their best" work. Sounds reasonable, right?  The problem with this is SOME clients are super easier to work on, while others are extremely difficult.  DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU FIT INTO THAT EQUATION?

  • NEXT . . .  Find an artist that can translate their skill to SKIN!  Do they CONSISTENTLY perform great work on clients with no eyebrows? And does the workflow with the client's face? Is that client happy? If so, THAT might be a person you can trust!

  • ASK FOR PHOTOS OF THEIR "HEALED" WORK. That's what counts...

  • ARE THEY WORKING IN A LICENSED FACILITY?  If not, they are probably working illegally. If they are willing to travel to your home, they are certainly working illegally and are showing that they are willing to take advantage of a broken system that is not equipped to track every microblader who just took a 3-day class. What other shortcuts are they taking? Unless you are also a professional tattoo artist, you will never know for sure.  Is that whom you should put your faith in?  

  • ARE THEY PRACTICING USING SAFE TECHNIQUES? What good are great brows, if you now have hepatitis?  or worse?

  • Remember, there are many technicians who have only been in practice for a few years or less.  Make sure they have a reputation for consistency.

 

Best of luck in your search!
