Once upon a time microblading was not taught formally, it was a skill that was passed on from master to apprentice. It was an art form that could not be bought.
For years I studied the details of the finest artists I knew of— Amy Jean and Branko Babic — in hopes of one day imbibing their abilities.
The confidence they personally filled me with changed my perception of how I saw my myself as an artist. The opportunities they presented to me opened my world and I am forever grateful.
I wanted to take a moment today to express my gratitude to the people who sculpted such a beautiful foundation for this industry. Amy, Branko — thank you.
In the explosion of the microblading craze over the last few years, I have seen it all. We have a lot to figure out in this industry culture, that’s for sure— yet so much integrity has emerged from the cringe worthy practices that go on. My personal mission is to uphold the integrity that I originally was taught by the artists I admired most.
How can we upkeep integrity, exactly?
