Aesthetics by Ink is a company comprised of two Cosmetic Tattoo Artists who also happen to be sisters:
Tiffany and Janelle! We are happily located in Burnaby, British Columbia, the same beautiful city in which we were lucky enough to grow up in.
Our mission is to provide quality service in a safe and comfortable environment for our clients. We both have many years of customer service experience under our belt and are proud to extend our professionalism, eye for detail, as well as our permanent makeup expertise to each of you.
*NOTE: Janelle is currently on maternity leave with no set return date at this time.
I have always been an innovative thinker with a passion for the beauty industry. My artistic sense thrives when it comes to beauty – whether that be makeup, hair, fashion, jewellery – I love it all! Over the years my love for cosmetics has flourished as I found myself constantly researching new trends and learning new techniques from make-up artists, beauty bloggers & cosmetic companies. Watching tutorials to learn about new products / tools, and testing out different methods of applying makeup is something I enjoy and always find time for (my husband can attest to this as I am constantly asking him for '5 more minutes’ before lights out)!
After my sister Janelle became a Cosmetic Tattoo Artist, it opened up my eyes to the industry and all the exciting possibilities it could bring. It was an easy choice to follow suit as I knew this career path was right up my alley. I was confident that it would be a fulfilling profession and something I could thrive in. I began
attending appointments with Janelle and shadowing her while learning all about this amazing and very popular eyebrow tattooing technique – microblading. Over a six month period I was trained in the procedure and gained significant hands on experience.
In 2016, I received my Permanent Makeup Certificate by successfully completing a course taught by a very well known professional who has over 25 years of experience in the field. During the course I learnt both microblading and blend-in eyebrow techniques, full lip contour and lipliner, top and bottom eyeliner, color correction and camoflauge. *Please note, the only service we offer is microblading*
I have always been a very meticulous and detail oriented person, which is of utmost importance when it comes to cosmetic tattooing. There are so many benefits to permanent makeup and I would love to share them with all of you! I especially take pride in helping boost my client’s confidence by helping to enhance their natural beauty. As Calvin Klein once started, “the best thing is to look natural but it takes makeup to look natural!”
In addition to the beauty industry, I have a special place in my heart for traveling. I love visiting new countries, experiencing new cultures and lifestyles, trying new foods and seeing the natural beauty this planet has to offer. Countries visited: Australia (lived there for 1 year), Cambodia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, France, Greece, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Thailand, Vietnam, as well as many cities throughout Canada and the U.S.A.
Growing up, I always enjoyed exploring my creativity through art and design. Whether it be drawing, scrap booking, designing and making greeting cards, creating wedding invites - I enjoy it all. The arts were second nature to me as it was not only something I enjoyed doing but I excelled at it.
Although I still enjoy art, I found a passion for the healthcare industry which is where I have been working for the last decade. I began in a multi-disciplinary, athletic training facility and integrated family clinic in Burnaby before moving my practice to a clinic in Port Moody. Over the years I came into contact with many clients who had medical conditions which lead to scars and hair loss. That is how my interest in medical and cosmetic tattoo procedures was born - I wanted to further help people.
I first obtained my Scalp Micropigmentation and Scar Revision Certification along with my Blood Bourne Pathogen certification at the Vancouver Paramedical Clinic. From there, I went onto further education to receive my Permanent Make up Certification in Vancouver. Helping clients with their physical ailments and conditions is gratifying as I see how much of a difference we can make in their lives. Providing services that promote self-assurance is a great thing.
I also have a passion for traveling (it must run in the family!) and when I am not not crossing the globe I enjoy spending quality time with family.
Tiffany and Janelle use their artistic sense as well as their desire to help people, to create the perfect pair of eyebrows for each individual client.
