Build your foundation and technique to succeed in para medical tattoo industry

Becoming a Paramedical Tattooist

I have been there! It is scary to leave your comfort zone and start something new whether you are thinking of changing your career or you want to add a new service to your existing beauty business. Fear comes from lacking knowledge or information. KNOWLEDGE = POWER!

I hope these courses will provide clear steps you need to take in terms of building your skills, so you can feel confident.

Hi I'm Gina

I'm a medical tattooist and a trainer.

I have been working as a medical tattooist for over 5 years. I was inspired by a Canadian tattoo artist who was a burn victim, who camouflaged her facial skin. When I saw she helped other burn victims with her experience, I immediately found my passion. My passion to help others feel better about themselves, helped me overcome my own personal life obstacles as a single mom, and gave me a purpose. 

Life brings so many surprises to everyone’s life. I learned It’s easier to overcome daily challenges when we have a goal. I love knowing that I can help people keep their eyes on the horizon and find the purpose in their lives through skills I learned over the years. 

I look forward to growing more and helping others grow together.
