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 ALL the techniques that I use to give you beautiful and natural permanent cosmetics. I was trained in microblading by Daria Chupry in 2015 before the media even knew what it was and have done thousands of procedures. I am also SofTap hand method trained for the least invasive powder brows, eyeliner and lip color. The next big thing coming out of Europe is the Stardust techique for Brows, eyes and lips and I am proud to be the only certified artist in this technique in the Seattle area and Lewiston, Idaho.
I am honored to be invited to be part of the BBB and that BOTH my locations and training academy are A+ accredited.
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 ZERO 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. HALF of the calls to my office are for correction work:( 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.
I am very Experienced in Microblading and was trained in it in early 2015 before it became popular. No matter what you hear it IS tattooing and needs an experienced person doing it. MANY are learning in 2-3 days or less and then using YOU to practice on.
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 14 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.

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 for their artist license and $300 for their shop license. The state DOES NOT CARE if they have taken one 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 14.5 years that 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 14.5 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? Artists need to be trained in several methods of handtools and machines for your comfort, safety and the
AMAZING results that either method gives! Microblading does not work for all skin types and the artist needs to know what to do when it doesn't work for you.
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 or nail 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 costs are discounted 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!
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 :)
Interested in this exciting career? I will teach you to be the BEST you can be!!!
Of my awards the below is one of my most cherished! The United Kingdom artists do amazing work and to be recognized by one is beyond an honor. Thank you Sharron!
Trained by the world famous Daria Chuprys of Greece and Beverly Hills, California in Microblading.
Advanced training from an artist in Moscow, Russia
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
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.
How will it look when healed???
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!
Lip Liner or Full Lips
Both locations are handicap accessible!
I live my life as an example of H.O.P.E.
