As a certified NZQA Beauty Therapist with ITEC, CIBTAC and CIDESCO international qualifications and awards like beautician of the year, at the age of 19, Melissa decided to open her own beauty clinic.
During the first year of business, after mastering the art of additional specialty services like eyelash extensions and 3D brow building, she realized there was a greater need for a solution for the loss of brows and lashes.
She was seeking a more permanent solution to help define the brows and eyes and decided to follow her natural skill set by venturing into the world of permanent makeup.
Since starting her Cosmetic Tattoo career in 2015, Melissa has transformed the lives of hundreds of amazing clients, men and woman alike that seeked her professional, result-driven, perfectionist skills.
These days you still find Melissa hidden in her Tattoo Room, working her magic behind the needle.
Retaining her key assets of honesty, respect, great communication and dedication for precision handy work Melissa keeps surpassing herself and clients expectations.
