Permanent Makeup Artist / Licensed Tattoo Artist, New York.
I was born and grew up in Belarus; a country in Eastern Europe. I graduated from the Institute of Business in Minsk, Belarus.
I have been doing permanent makeup since 2015. Thanks to my husband, I became a master of permanent makeup. And a few months later I joined the family business.
In 2017 my husband and I became co-owners of a fantastic tattoo and permanent makeup studio in the heart of Minsk, the capital city of Belarus. There were about 10 artists in our Mel ink studio. Mel ink tattoo studio became more and more popular not only with local customers but also with foreigners. Different people from all over the world visited our studio for a tattoo session or for permanent makeup procedures.
In 2022, my family and I moved to New York City. I have had many years of experience in the profession and I am happy to continue doing what I love and making my clients happier and more confident in their lives.
I know all the newest techniques of permanent makeup. In my portfolio you can find work of any difficulty. For example, I perform powder eyebrows and microblading, lip blush and dark lip neutralization, lash line and shadow liner, and scar camouflage after mammaplasty.
One of the most important parts of a quality procedure is to know all up-to-date techniques. And that is why every year I undergo professional training and participate in international congresses and championships.
I choose only high-quality equipment and materials for my work. I use premium pigments which are created and designed only for permanent make-up. I care about the beauty and health of each client. It’s important to me that everyone gets the best service. After visiting my office, you will be able to forget about the daily make-up or find out about all the possibilities of your inborn beauty. You will be able to fix a defect that has long bothered you, or completely hide it. You will feel confident on vacation or in the pool and stop worrying about your makeup. I have been doing permanent makeup for a long time, I have received a lot of feedback from clients some years after the procedure. It’s such a blessing when you can look the way you like without daily makeup. And the only thing you have to do is to have a permanent makeup procedure once every few years.
