My Story

Most of us struggle with some sort of insecurity, myself included. What may be small or even unnoticeable to others may be extremely difficult for us to cope with. When I first learned about paramedical tattooing, I was immediately drawn to the power beyond its artistry. Its ability to change people both physically and emotionally was something that I connected with on a very personal level.

Seeing how artistic transformations could be so profound was always inspiring to me. I originally began my career as a licensed cosmetologist, as well as a professional makeup artist. I started my journey working in a high end NYC salon, and moved on to doing makeup for film and television in Louisiana and Chicago. After 11 years, I built a strong background in color theory and aesthetics, and learned the deep importance of enhancing each individual’s unique beauty.

In a world with so much emphasis on physical appearance, it can be difficult finding the balance of inner and outer beauty. Growing up in the Santa Cruz mountains of California, I experienced firsthand how therapeutic surrounding yourself in nature can be. I believe wholeheartedly that incorporating parts of nature in your everyday life, even just little things, can bring a sense of tranquility to your mindset.

It fills my heart that I am now able to focus my passion for helping others and intertwine it with my affinity for nature and its ability to heal. This is where Willow & Birch Ink was born. I hope to inspire some self-love and remind people that true happiness lies within themselves, regardless of the scars life brings along the way.

I would love to hear your story.
