Paula did the microblading on my eyebrows and did an amazing job on them. I couldn’t be happier. Can’t wait for her to do my permanent eyeliner.
Paula did my permanent eyeliner. She did an amazing job and was so good about making sure I was comfortable. I wouldn’t change a thing. Having someone tattoo that close to your eyes and doing something permanent on your face, it’s important to find someone good. Paula is the person! Highly recommend!!!
