Tess Marti

Dark Lip Correction SpecialistWorld renowned PMU Master Trainer@tesstattoo

My interest in makeup began at a very young age. Every day I would practice new styles and techniques and loved discovering all the different ways I could change looks just by adding shadows and lines. As part of my studies, I took multiple drafting courses, which is where I developed a love for understanding shapes and symmetry.

I decided to combine my two passions and start a career in cosmetic tattooing. As a permanent makeup artist, my greatest passion is to help women boost their confidence and self-esteem. I am a perfectionist and enjoy working patiently and meticulously to produce unbeatable, natural-looking permanent makeup. I’m proud of the international training I have received, I have learned the most innovative techniques to enhance your natural beauty.

I look forward to meeting and speaking with all of you at the Vegas PMU Master Conference in April.
