Beauty Mark Permanent Makeup Studio Owner | Permanent Makeup Artist

After spending nearly 15 years as a medical laboratory technologist for Holston Medical Group, Heather boldly made the decision to leave her career in healthcare and devote herself entirely to her artistic passion in 2018. She spent that year in a tattoo apprenticeship full-time to become a licensed permanent makeup artist. Due to her own natural artistic ability, eye for detail, hard work and dedication, Heather quickly caught the attention of what would become a large and loyal clientele. In 2019, Heather's commitment to knowledge led her to Las Vegas to advance her study under world-renowned permanent makeup artists at Girlz Ink. She spent the next 3 years earning the respect and referrals of plastic surgeons, estheticians, hairstylists, makeup artists, as well as others in the health and beauty industry and of course, her much appreciated clients. In 2021, professional growth limitations led Heather to further branch out on her own. She gained the title owner/artist when she opened The BeautyMark Permanent Makeup Studio in July. Her dream of giving clients the very best experience in permanent makeup, spreading confidence and most importantly teaching the value of self care was made a reality by a wonderful collaboration with Amanda Jackson's The Science of Beauty. 

Heather believes yearly continuing education requirements should be mandatory for all permanent makeup artists.
