Cosmetic/ Para-medical Tattooing

Drawing on her extensive fine art career painting in high realism style, Alisha brings her understanding of colour and talent for delicate detail, to the world of cosmetic and para-medical tattooing. The only independent practitioner at Showpony, we are happy to refer clients to Alisha and facilitate consultations through our central booking.

Since January 2016 she has completed an extensive apprenticeship with her colleague Nicole, who has practiced in East Ottawa for 15 years, and completed certification from the Canadian Micro-Pigmentation Centre for facial enhancements and 3D areola artistry, and continues to study and participate in advanced training.

In April 2017 Alisha started working with the talented Showpony Team in the lovely zen upper spa. The peaceful, beautiful space easily allows you to feel comfortable and relaxed, along with Alisha's confidence, calm disposition and expertise.

What is Cosmetic Tattooing?

Permanent makeup ( also known as Micropigmentation) consists of implanting natural pigments under the superficial layers of the skin by means of micro-needles, to create lasting cosmetic definition of the eyebrows, eyes, lips and 3D areola.

How does it work?

Alisha exclusively uses a computerized digital machine by Nouveau Contour, which is by far the most sophisticated permanent makeup delivery system avaliable. A sterile needle is located at the working end of the pen style handle, and it is used to draw on the skin surface leaving previously mixed tattoo pigment behind.
