Meet Amanda McGregor
Amanda is passionate about her field of cosmetic tattooing and the results speak for themselves.
I have been interested in eyebrow shaping since I was a teenager, and not knowing how to shape my eyebrows I did some damage from plucking too much out. As time went by my eyebrows didn’t grow back much at all. I got older my eyebrows thinned out, a couple of scars in my right brow and an unbalanced thyroid issue and I wasn’t left with much by the age of 40.
I had to pencil every day and tint them continuously to keep them looking good, until it got too annoying and I had to learn how to fix my eyebrows then I could fix others, I have been shaping eyebrows for 30 years and tattooing for nearly 10 years.
The secret is being artistic, having an eye for detail, being extremely fussy about the result and delivering an excellent outcome every time. What I do is about 80% me, it’s my passion. You can teach someone to paint but it does not make them a great painter. Many cosmetic tattooists are not artistic so I trained in a variety of different techniques and combined with my artistic flair and my eyebrow shaping skills- here I am!
I have been tattooing for nearly 10 years. I am constantly training and updating and I am happy to talk to you about this ongoing part of my business. Amanda was recently voted one of Melbourne’s top cosmetic tattooist artists by The Urban List.
