Hi my name is Karly
and I have been a cosmetician since 1989 and a SofTap Permanent Cosmetics artist since 2003 . I have trained with the BEST in the world in Beverly Hills, California in the technique known as microblading/microstroking 3D Brows. Click on my picture and find me on facebook
I would love to become your facial artist but no matter who you choose...please read this important info so you are safe.
In Washington state and Idaho there there are no requirements for any training to perform these services. Washington only requires a 2 hr online blood borne pathogens test and a couple hundred dollars and you are legal to tattoo a face. Idaho has no laws on permanent cosmetics. A license on the wall DOES NOT mean you are safe. I am honored to have been interviewed and chosen to be part of the legislative committee in Washington state to hopefully change that for you.
The Society of Permanent Cosmetics is one of the only regulatory bodies in this industry and a member must uphold the highest standards of ethics, cleanliness and training to be a member. Click on the pink SPCP logo for more information on permanent cosmetics. I am proud to be a member in good standing with the SPCP.
I am very Experienced in Microblading as seen on The Doctors TV show.
I look forward to exceeding your expectations with the gift I have for enhancing faces! I treat your face like it is my own with only the best products and training for application available in the industry. My 12 year and 5 star reputation has been built carefully one face at a time. I treat your face with the same care I would give my own and am Blessed with thousands of happy ladies.

out of the thousand+ tattoo studios in Western Washington and up from

Cosmetics category .....BUT I am the only ...just facial tattooist in
the top 50 tattoo studios overall!!!!
QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR FUTURE ARTIST.
DO NOT BE FOOLED JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE A LICENSE...in
Washington state the ONLY requirement to be licensed to tattoo bodies
and faces is a online blood borne pathogens test and to send the state
250 dollars. The state DOES NOT CARE if they have taken an hour of
training and now new people are even training others because of the
thousand dollar per day it brings. In Idaho and many other states
there is no license to be acquired at all .
ASK HOW LONG AND HOW MANY PROCEDURES EXPERIENCE??? When they begin with how many years in the beauty business rather than how many years tattooing faces...run. I have 28 years in the beauty business but the only years that matter are the last 12 I have done permanent makeup. Look at their pics
and make sure they are their pics...many are stealing others work and
calling it their own. I had a client recently who said the gal just
plugged in the hashtag microblade and then showed her all the pics as if
they were her own. Ask for referrals of clients to call..... and look
This is a big one!!!
Many have been in the business for 5 years but they do 1-2 procedures
per week. OR they give the impression they have been in the for years
but have only been doing permanent makeup for a year. You want someone
who does this fulltime almost every day and is a master at their art. I
have done it full time for 12 years!
far out are you booked? BE CAREFUL when they can get you in tomorrow!
WHY are they not booked? I am 3+ weeks out in both locations and on
some days 3 months. Groupon offers also mean they are not busy or
they would not give half their profits away.
you do it by hand or machine? Natural and soft permanent makeup is
done best by hand tools and fabulous hairstrokes need to be done by
handtool. I only work with handtools for your comfort, safety and the
AMAZING look it gives!
this your full time or do you do hair, nails or other jobs? YES! I
have been a master artist since 2003 who day in day out is doing
permanent makeup :) I am a specialist.
often do you and attend advanced classes to increase your skills?
YES! I am constantly studying and when I do attend advanced classes
spend the $1,000+ PER DAY they cost!
you licensed (with a minimum 100 hrs of training) , insured and
certified? YES! I am licensed in Washington and though Idaho has no
licensing requirements and even Washington has no strict rules I follow
the places in the world that are strict and put your safety as my number
one priority using ALL disposable products and tools.
Do you use ALL disposable tools and protection garb and cover all surfaces? YES! Your face and health is safe with me.
Do you have a private studio or in a salon? YOU DO NOT want what may be floating in a salon implanted in your skin.
you be around in 2+ years when I need a color boost and what will you
charge me? YES! and your future cost is only half price per area for
my work! EVEN when I add new skills to my business you get them at that
cost. (WHEN you come back every 2 years or less)
LIFE IS TO SHORT to do everyday what I can put on for you perfectly! Then you will have more time to LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE!!!
WHY choose me? I am a facial specialist! This is my and I spend thousands of dollars and hours and each year improving my skills with further education. I ONLY do faces almost every day and am referred by many in the medical community because of my strict personal rules of safety.
For a life altering procedure you need to choose someone who specializes in one thing. Permanent makeup is a very intensive art that requires incredible skill and expertise. More than 3/4 of all permanent makeup artist do this as a side business while they do hair, nails or other .
After 8 years of building my business in the area I opened another studio in Lynnwood, Washington in 2011. I was so honored within short years to receive my first BEST OF award! NOW I have 3 in a row!!!!
WHOO HOO! Thank you so much to my clients in both for trusting their faces to me :)

You will see by the many styles of brows and eyes that I use artistic talent to give your facial features the best look for you. I do not do the same brow on each person it is completely based on YOUR face. I WILL ALSO NOT do what will not look amazing on you since your face is my reputation and billboard.
ALWAYS increasing my knowledge for my clients
ABOVE IS POWDER METHOD
THE PHOTO ABOVE IS THE POWDER METHOD
ALL THE FOLLOWING PICTURES ARE CORRECTION WORK I HAVE DONE FROM OTHER PLACES!!!!! It breaks my heart when someones face is disrespected by sub par work. I spend 25% + of my time correcting work done by others :( It is much easier and less expensive for you to come to me first! Invest in you the first time or pay to get it corrected! These pictures are just a smidge of what I have corrected. ____________________________________________________

ALL above pictures are immediately after procedure and the below is a look at how work by Karly looks healed.... and in this case a year later!
