Mastectomy Tattoos

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know that "Miss Ni***es" aka Stacie-Rae Weir is coming to San Antonio to do some advanced ar**la tattooing classes. These classes are for those with at least a few years experience in tattooing or permanent makeup. Stacie-Rae is doing a 1 day class for those already well-familiar with equipment and shading techniques, that will focus more on drawing and the artistic side of A.R.T. (Ar**la Restorative Tattooing). This will be held on Tuesday, January 24th, 2017 at my shop in San Antonio. Cost of the 1 day class is $750, with a max of 5 students allowed. The second class will be 2 days in length, and will cover shading techniques, drawing and pigment selection for A.R.T. This will also be held at my shop in San Antonio, January 26th and 27th, 2017. Cost of the 2 day class is $1200. I'm so excited to be hosting training with this amazing artist. If you would like to check out her work, go to Examples of mastectomy tattooing for breast cancer survivors


People are always asking how student's practice prior to working on actual clients. This is real pigskin. It is an excellent material for a new student to learn techniques.

One of my students that trained with me last year. She did these brows yesterday. Great work Clarice MacDonald, you're killing it....

[07/24/16]   Beginning October of 2016, we will be teaching a 10 day apprenticeship program. This is a fundamentals class for those serious about learning this art. What this means is that all beginning students will be required to train for a minimum of 10 days in class. No additional charge for students wanting to come back and spend more time in training and shadowing instructors.

The initial 10 days can be broken up into several classes if need be. We know it's hard for students to leave family, full time jobs, etc. for a 2 week period. So students will have a full year to complete their 10 day minimum requirement. The apprenticeship program will include training to do eyebrows, eyeliner, full lip color, and microblading. It will also include an equipment package with a retail value of $1000. Tuition for the apprenticeship program is 5000.00 .

We're raising the bar for education in this industry, because it's time someone did.

this beautiful girl was a client of my several years back. She had just lost her arms from stepping on an explosive device in a mine field. She was an EOD tech. I did her permanent makeup because obviously she could no longer apply regular makeup. I'll never forget her.

I was once an EOD Tech. Now, I do whatever I can to raise awareness for the military su***de epidemic, and help people work through rough situations.

Yet another reason to get permanent makeup eyeliner…lol

Busy day at work yesterday. 4 permanent makeup eyebrows and 1 eyeliner. Here is one client. She had a pretty nasty scar in that brow, and will most likely need a touchup. Scar tissue can be tricky.

This beautiful lady is almost 80 years old. She said she has never really had eyebrows, so spent years drawing them on. I did hair strokes with microblading technique. The brows are a bit thin for my taste, however this is what she requested. We can always make them a little fuller later. smile emoticon Also you can see we did her upper eyeliner.
