    Thao’s gift for subtle shading, shape and color allows her to accentuate your features naturally. She chooses pigments to compliment your skin, eyes and lip color. Rather than using a mechanical device, Thao utilizes hand-brush strokes for a more natural-looking result.

    The semi-permanent cosmetic treatments that Thao provides are most commonly for eyeliner, lips and eyebrows. She also provides cosmetic tattoo correction and removal of unwanted tattoos. Thao's artistic cosmetic tattooing is often a fantastic compliment to the rejuvenated look provided by eyelid surgery or lip augmentation performed by Dr. Macdonald.
