Happy New Year (a couple months late)!!!!
As many of you may or may not know, my life has been a whirlwind for the last 4 or 5 months while I went through a transition.
I recently took over and remodeled an older medical office to use as my new tattoo studio. If we back up to August, that is when it all began. I put in my notice at the end of August, and by the end of September I left my Phenix Salon Suite in Rocklin to move to a space in the downtown/Land Park neighborhood of Sacramento (where I live). I made this decision because of the location, the clientele, and to work with one of my closest friends. We had SO MANY plans to make it into a great work environment and to have an awesome "beauty mecca" for all of our clientele. It turned out that we were unable to get my room permitted to be a tattoo studio, so I had to think quickly and find a new location ASAP! I was able to work from home a little bit here and there, while stressing out about finding a new space. It was the end of October, and I was having no luck finding anything. I finally got a hold of a commercial leasing agent and she showed me a few available units in an old medical building in Carmichael, and I fell in love with one of the units.
The unit was DISGUSTING! But I loved it. I have watched enough HGTV to know I could handle a renovation of that magnitude. Plus, the rent was affordable and they offered me 3 months free while I did the upgrades! I knew we had a ton of work ahead of us, but it was exciting. The work we did on the space was: deep clean, including all cabinets and blinds, new waterproof vinyl plank floors, professional paint on all surfaces except the cabinets, new plugs, switches, and light fixtures, patched some holes in the wall and ceiling, replace some ceiling tiles in the hallway, remove old defunct cables and phone lines from the walls, remove a giant floor to ceiling wooden filing cabinet that we had to break apart into a million pieces to get out of the room, remove and replace the bathroom vanity and sink, and of course, decorating and making it feel like home. Since we did most of the work ourselves and it spanned the course of the Holidays, it took us just about 3 months from start to finish.
It took us 3 months to get everything done and permitted, and now I have been working out of the unit for about a month, still getting used to being there and getting my work flow going, but I love it. It's huge, professional, clean, and cozy. I wanted it to feel like my second home and a place for clients to be feel at ease with the decision of having permanent makeup done.
With this renovation, and upgrades to my services and education, I felt it necessary to increase my rates to remain competitive. Brows went up $100, and eyeliner procedures went up $50. As always, I give a discount of $50 off if you bundle services. Please read the Permanent Makeup page for information on pricing.
If you are interested in booking an appointment for brows or liner, please email me using the contact page! I'd love for you to see the new space and more importantly, to be one of my happy clients!
