I became a member of the community I had been helping. I battled depression and anxiety about my health and physical appearance. I felt people’s gaze shift from my eyes to focus on my large neck scar. This was a constant reminder of the disease I was trying to put behind me. I eventually put my skills to the test on myself, and used the very scar revision protocol that I offer to my clients today. The profound transformation I experienced first-hand, made the terms medical, paramedical, and healing tattoo interchangeable for me.
This inspired me to create The Art of Camouflage courses. My own doctors could not believe how I was able to camouflage my scar, and I was finally able to move forward with cancer behind me. Through illness and healing, I redefined myself, solidified my business path, purpose, and journey in the paramedical tattoo field. Now cancer-free, my goal is not only to continue healing through my clinic, but to make paramedical tattoos more accessible, while elevating industry standards.
