Melissa is one of New Zealand’s leading Cosmetic and Medical Tattooist’s who change people’s lives - every day.
An inspired lady with lofty goals, Melissa has the vision of making a positive impact on every client she sees by providing quality services and exceptional care.
“Dealing with and helping people is a privilege I’ve had most of my working life, I’ve seen them at their best and I’ve seen them at their lowest, and if I can add a ray of hope, a ray of happiness to their lives by doing what I do then I am satisfied.” Says Melissa.
Within her well-equipped clinic Melissa boasts an impressive wall of qualifications, though not content to rest on her laurels she travels offshore at least twice a year to further her career with advanced specialised training so she is always up to date with the latest techniques, technology and knowledge in her field.
Melissa aims to do everything possible to make her clients experience positive and enlightening, one she anticipates will also change lives forever. The ambience and impression of excellence present in her clinic is also reflected in the tools and materials she uses. Clients can be assured of the finest quality equipment throughout their procedures. Treatments take place within a safe, comfortable and hygienic environment.
She takes the time required to deliver the best service to each individual client. Her focus is genuinely honed, meticulously considered and totally unique to each client, based entirely on their requirements.
One of her specialties is Scalp Micro-pigmentation - this procedure simulates the look of a hair follicle with cosmetic tattooing, this transforms bald or balding heads into the appearance of a five o’clock shadow or a number one clipper effect.
Taking up to just three sessions to complete, this treatment offers new hope to people who are concerned with or experiencing balding. Not just for men this treatment is very effective and a life changing experience for both males and females who suffer from ‘thinning’, in this procedure Melissa adds density throughout the thinning areas. Many of her clients haven’t seen their hairline in many years. Most clients who have had this done experience a new found confidence and a more youthful appearance - many commenting that they receive loads of compliments from friends and family after treatment.
She has earned quite a reputation with other micro-pigmentation treatments such as feathered brows, ombré brows, eyeliner and lip tattooing. Melissa sees her services as an essential part of someone’s life, especially those who are particularly active and want to maintain lasting makeup, maybe sight impaired or having medical conditions such as hand tremors, Alopecia or after cancer treatment and for those just wanting to correct natures imbalances with perfectly balanced brows, eyes or lips.
Melissa also works with patients who survive cancer treatment, boosting their self esteem through simulating a 3D nipple and areola after breast reconstruction surgery, with her medical tattooing skills. This has seen her popularity rise among medical professionals through their patient recommendations for her services. Nothing pleases Melissa more than seeing a client shine after receiving one of her specialised treatments.
“It’s amazing to see the transformation of someone’s self esteem after one of my treatments and the profound effect that has on their lives” says Melissa.
