MEET THE TEAM

Your Certified Specialists

CLARE MARTIN

Owner, Cosmetic Tattoo Technician

During my 20`s, I discovered I had a very entreprenuerial and creative mindset. 

I was born in the UK and from the age of 18, worked in an office, but could never settle in to the Corporate environment. Being a creative I was constantly dreaming and designing exciting projects, to keep my mind motivated and inspired.

In my earlier years, I had a fascination with Beauty, and learned to do Acrylic Nails, followed by an Airbrush Body Art course. Airbrushing could be done on the nails for tiny patterns, on the face as makeup, and on the body for spray tans and temporary tattoo`s. This was where my love of beauty, skin and body art began.

I started my own business at 22 called Top Bods. I quickly learned the art of spraying a flawless tan, and also took myself off to music festivals in my VW Camper Van, to adorn party goers with pretty Body Art Tattoo`s, that would wash off at the end of the day.

I then began to train other people in spray tans and quickly decided to do a Beauty Therapy Diploma,as a MATURE student, at age 25 (I still cant believe that was classed as mature).

Prior to this discovery of my love for beauty, I had issues with hair-loss. I slowly lost every eyebrow hair I owned and decided I would get my brows tattoo`d. I also attended a Cosmetic Tattoo and Body Tattoo course in London, with friends, to help to treat others with the same issues that I had. 

The course, in my eyes, was a complete disaster. It left me full of doubt and scared to perform the treatments. For that reason, I decided to learn more about the skin, so that I had a better understanding of the art, hence my enrolment to Beauty College.

Even back then, I had very high standards and I was unprepared to produce Cosmetic Tattoo work on peoples faces, that was not up to standard, and I understood the responsibility of giving a client, eyebrows that they could love and feel confident with. Having my brows tattood changed my life and Ill never forget the day that I had them done, and how wonderful it felt.

I also owned and ran my own Skin and Beauty Business, here in Melbourne, Australia, when I moved here in 2009.

Fast Forward many years and I have had the honour of working on so many beautiful ladies and giving them Brows, Eyeliner and Lip Tattoo`s that are natural and beautiful.

I take an immense amount of pride in my work and in ensuring that my clients are well informed, not only during the treatment but well before and after. I believe the steps taken before and after are just as, if not more important than the treatments themselves.

I am now also a Business Coach and Mentor for the Cosmetic Tattoo Industry. I speak at some of the main Semi-Permanent Makeup events here in Australia and have also won Cosmetic Tattoo Artist of the Year, with the Association of Cosmetic Tattoo.

My mission is to ensure that clients make educated decisions when choosing an artist, and that the technicians in our industry strive to offer an extraordinary service to their clients, through solid advanced training and strong business integrity and foundations. I feel that this career takes a great amount of skill and should be treated with the utmost respect.

I have not only completed my Basic Skills in Cosmetic Tattoo but over my 17 years in Beauty, have also attended over 20 Master Classes, with world renowned Artists. This has given me the experience to offer a wide range of services in my art, for all skin types and ages.

I believe in creating soft results, that enhance our NATURAL beauty, hence my slogan "Natural Beauty Enhanced."

I believe Semi-Permanent makeup should be timeless and not trendorientated, to ensure that compliments your natural features, throughout time.

Please feel free to contact us, with any information you would like regarding our treatments and we will be more than happy to assist.

I look forward to meeting you, should you decide to embark on your Cosmetic Tattoo journey with me.

Have a beautiful day.

Clare Martin.
