Mother’s Day

One of the most amazing gifts that God has given me is my mother….

She has always been there for me when I needed her, and even more  when I thought I didn’t.   Needless to say, back in the day when I was still learning about the art of permanent makeup and I needed a human sacrifice to practice on, there she was.  Ready and willing to allow me to tattoo eyebrow, eyeliner, and lips in the hopes that I would not mess up too horribly!!.  Lucky for her I took my craft seriously and did a wonderful job.  I am grateful to my aunts, cousins, and best friends who also allowed me to practice on their beautiful faces.  In fact, I am eternally grateful to all the ladies in my life who have had a positive influence on me, and have helped me grow into the woman I am today.  With that said, I’d like to share a before and after photo of my mom and the makeup I did for her back in 2002 when I was still learning.  She was 68 years old at the time!!  Thanks mom, I LOVE YOU………!

“My child is small and frail and needs much tending.  I bathe her and comb her hair.  I give her medicine and encourage her to eat.  I kiss her goodnight, and tell her I love her.  I am 60.  My child is 97.  Roles have reversed.  I am the mom.  My mother is the very special child.”                ~By Doris Roberson
