Growing up with Grandfather Tony Hepburn, an internationally recognized artist, creativity was in her blood! After a career in Cosmetic Makeup & Hair, working at top Salons such as; Warren-Tricomi in the Plaza Hotel, and Saks Fifth Ave Salon & Spa in NYC, meanwhile freelancing Bridal & Editorial Makeup. Elsa had a change of heart when Permanent Makeup corrected her facial scars after enduring 30 stitches from a dog attack. This is when she made the switch from Cosmetology to Tattooing. Passionate about the craft, Elsa and wife Angela Torresiani set out to train others and share their knowledge!
