My Journey Through Tattooing Brown Skin

Julia is the owner of Lash2Lashes Lounge in Temple Hills, MD, and serves the SPCP as a Director and Ethics Chairperson. Her journey began after taking a two-day microblading class and realizing that she would need more education to succeed in this industry. After taking numerous advanced classes, she started focusing on skin of color or high melanin-enriched skin. Using various machines, Julia’s passion focused on healed results. She concentrates on needle configurations, primarily which needle works best for her on which skin.
