Permanent makeup artist, microblading & paramedic tattooing

My name is Andreia, I'm originally from Brazil and I’ve been a resident of the Coulee Region since 2009 . I am extremely passionate about esthetics and I'm a licensed paramedical tattoo artist in the state of Wisconsin. I found my passion for micropigmentation in 2020 when a dear friend had an infection in her breasts after a breast implant exchange and lost her entire areola. I started searching for a solution to help her and I discovered micropigmentation. At first, it was just about finding someone who could help her but I became enchanted by the technique and began to think that this could be a very rewarding profession – to work at a job I enjoy, and help other women regain their confidence. That same year began my studies and specialized in areola micropigmentation. I performed my first areola micropigmentation in 2021 on my dear friend, and it was one of the most special days of my life, being able to see the joy in her eyes. Since then, I've continued to specialize in other areas such as microblading, lip blush, powder brows, and today I feel fulfilled being able to help other women regain their self-esteem through micropigmentation.
