Licenced Esthetician

Hi my names Alexyss. Before inked, I was working as a Licensed Esthetician, certified in microblading, lash extensions, microneedling, dermaplaning, and Hydrafacials. The art of permanent makeup and how much it can change someone’s life amazed me. I wanted to dive right into this new world immediately. I did my research, and found the best trainer in STL. I started my apprenticeship at Inked directly under Emily. With 300 hours and 50 procedures under my belt, I am now a PRO Licensed Tattoo Artist at inked! I’m a perfectionist, and have a detailed eye when it comes to symmetry. The combination of my background in skin, and my passion for making people feel beautiful made permanent makeup a perfect career path for me. I’m so excited and I hope to see all of your beautiful faces soon!
