It’s more than skin-deep, cosmetic tattooing changes lives (Scotsman.com)

Ruth Walker (talking about Karen Betts’ semi-permanent makeup procedures): “It’s more than skin-deep, cosmetic tattooing changes lives” (Scotsman.com)

For many people, a tattoo is a way of demonstrating individuality or, conversely, membership of some kind of tribe or belief system.

For others, it can be life-changing; giving them back a part of themselves that has been cruelly taken away by fire, by disease, by a quirk of fate.

Karen Betts, a make-up artist and hair stylist, taught herself tattooing when she rented part of her building to a tattoo artist. Her earliest attempts were cute little Winnie the Poohs and love hearts – she admits now they were not her finest work.

 

But when, 15 years ago, one of her clients – a woman who had lost her hair during chemotherapy – was willing to let Betts get creative with her neighbour’s needle, her career took on a whole new trajectory. “She had lost her eyebrows, so I tattooed them in.

“Then, when she had breast cancer, I tattooed around her nipples after reconstructive surgery. I thought, ‘You know what, there is something to this. I think I could really give people back what they have lost.’”

Karen Betts, industry expert.

Cher Lloyd’s Beauty Evolution

Posted by Nadia Burgess on December 16, 2011

Cher Lloyd’s Beauty Evolution as featured in Heat Magazine Dec 2011.

How did she do it?  With a little help from HD Brows (amongst others) of course!

Nilam Patel – HD Brows Co-Director and official brow shaper said:

“Cher’s brows were very thin, dramatic and high on her face. We used the HD Brows Treatment over the course of 8 weeks to grow them in to a better position and shape, which softened her face.  HD Brows Grow Baby Grow Serum and HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette were my wonder products during this time”.
