I was born and raised in Westhampton Beach, New York (Where my first job at the age of 13 was in a prestigious salon as a shampoo girl).
I lived in Minot, North Dakota for 6 years ("Where?!" you ask?....EXACTLY), California for 7 years, and now I currently reside in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with my Husband and our beautiful Baby Girls
As of September 1st, 2020 we have opened our very own Tattoo and Permanent Makeup shop.
I started this ambitious endeavor back in 2015 in California when I first applied to San Francisco's Cosmetology school to become an esthetician. I wanted to do it all! Facials, skin care, professional makeup, eyelash extensions, permanent makeup...all things esthetics!
Having found out my mom was diagnosed with cancer I was unable to complete my schooling as I moved to ND to take care of her.
Mom had 3 cancers in 3 years. Stage 3 Cervical, Stage 3 Colon, and Stage 1 (almost 2) Breast Cancer.
She fought the 1st 2 cancers like a champ, but when they diagnosed her with breast cancer, I watched the news knock the wind from her sails. The thought of losing her breasts was devastating. (She reluctantly elected to have a double mastectomy with reconstruction)
To some, losing a breast/s may not seem like a big deal if it will take away the cancer, & plastic surgery can help with reconstruction. To many others, it feels like you're losing a part of yourself or your womanhood. Reconstruction helps, but never looking like what we were born with, can make a person feel incomplete, self-conscious, & dare I say it ugly. (We know that's not true, but what we know can't change how someone else may feel.)
From that point on, I decided to change directions and went straight to permanent makeup and 3D nipple and areola reconstruction. A percentage of the money made from 3D nipple and areola reconstruction will go straight back to the Cancer Foundation.
Since doing permanent makeup and staying in the tattoo industry, I have also completed an Apprenticeship and am now also a Tattoo Artist and the FIRST AND ONLY FIBROBLAST SKING TIGHTENING TECHNICIAN IN SOUTH DAKOTA. Living the best of all the worlds, I am excited to be able to express my passion through art, Plasma, and cosmetic tattooing.
Create a positive, welcoming, creative, and fun environment in my own Tattoo, Fibroblast, and Permanent Makeup studio where everyone can continue to grow and support each others artistic talents!
Connect with Oncologists & Plastic Surgeons to help their patients who have had or are going to have mastectomies by offering my services to restore or re-pigment areolas. A percentage of each clients’ procedure will be donated back to a Cancer Foundation or to a local family battling cancer or expenses incurred from battling cancer.
Come see us for a free consult and I will answer any questions or concerns you have. Thank you for trusting me to enhance your cosmetic image! My work is something I take great pride in and I respect and appreciate your time and business.

Aland Azez was born in Sulaymaniyah, Iraq and grew up in the Northern region of Turkey before he immigrated to the United States. His Kurdish roots prompt his artistic themes to revolve around the question of fragmentation, dependence, self-discovery, rejection, and belonging. Azez uses themes like death and rebirth to explore the meaning of life and generational trauma alongside the challenge of masculinity and gender expectations in society. He is self-taught and uses ink and pencil as his preferred mediums. Aland enjoys tattooing fine line and black and grey tattoos.
