How she got into Permanent Cosmetics and away from Cosmetic Makeup and Hair is when Permanent Cosmetics literally restored and reconstructed her face!  She suffered a dog attack, leaving 30+ stitches in her face; devastating was an understatement.  After undergoing 2 reconstructive scar revision surgeries she was left with stitch line scars, discoloration, and a very asymmetrical lip line.  It was a harsh reality realizing surgery could only do so much.  But she didn’t give up, after a few years of dealing with the scar using cosmetic makeup Elsa grew tired of the never ending routine, and constant concern if her makeup was wearing off leaving her scars exposed. She had enough and found the solution!  Permanent Makeup and Scar Camouflage Medical Tattoo!  Fabulous NYC Permanent Cosmetic Artist: April Meese did an amazing transformation!  Go to to read my testimonial.  April later became one of Elsa’s mentors and trainers.  The results from April’s work were night and day, the scars were camouflaged, her lip line symmetrical and well defined again!   She felt back to her old self for the first time in almost 10 years!  Many people say that looking at Elsa now you would never believe she had ever endured a dog attack, underwent reconstructive surgeries, or has Permanent Makeup.  She wants that same reaction for all of her clients.  What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger!  That part of her journey is what inspired her to learn the craft and pay it forward!  She takes altering someones appearance permanently very seriously.  Her goal is to provide top of the line procedures, that create natural looking results.  Meanwhile keeping the integrity of the clients skin intact.   

She now does all of her own Permanent Cosmetics- Brows, Scar Camouflage, Blush Lips, and Eyeliner.  She truly loves what she does and believes in the positive change and impact permanent makeup can bring in a person’s life.

Fun Fact: Elsa Does ALL of her OWN Permanent Cosmetics.  Includes; Scar Camouflage on her face, Top Lid Eyeliner, Blush Lips, and Combination Eyebrows!




Simply put but not so simply done, Elsa saved me. I had my eyebrows tattooed by the esthetician, Juana Shin, at Northwestern Plastic Surgery (their surgeons are amazing) and if need be I can post the disastrous photos. I was refunded my money but not the problem that she created. Embarrassed and humiliated how I looked, it took me a few months to find someone I could trust to fix this mistake.  I spent extensive time researching and getting more and more confused about how to not only fix my problem but what type of tattooing would work best for me. I turned to yelp. Elsa popped right up, thank god. Called her, scheduled consult and just asked how soon can we start on the correction and then the actual “new” tattooing. I listened, learned and heeded Elsa’s advice. I got a serious lesson in what questions, licenses to ask about for different body applications and was mortified that I’m only now learning about this as I have been getting my eyebrows tattooed, unsatisfactorily, for 20 years. Who would know what questions to ask? Elsa did the correction (listen to her) and has now started my new tattoo’s, I’m beyond ecstatic. Relief cannot be expressed. And among all of the learning, frustrating months that I spent in search of finding Elsa, money was not the first topic of conversation. Every other single tattoo person focused on getting their money upfront and made that the main topic of conversation, not what mattered to me, the patient and how I will look. Thank you respectfully and sincerely, Elsa.
