In today's world of the "non stop hustle", we are always so busy checking off our to-do lists,
making sure everyone else is taken care of, and giving everything we've got that we sometimes
forget to take care of ourselves.
Do you ever find yourself wishing there was more time in the day to pull your look together and to cut out some steps to your beauty routine? Do you ever wish you could just wake up and go, and feel more confident about yourself without having to spend so much time and effort on makeup?
Or are you just simply tired of spending so much money on cosmetics trying to achieve a beautiful, natural look? Did you know that you can wake up with makeup, every day, by investing in a simple,, virtually painless cosmetic tattoo procedure?
You can achieve better brows, eyes, and lips that are waterproof and smudge-proof and can give you the ability to go makeup free, resulting in low-maintenance, effortless beauty.
Powder Brows, (AKA Ombre Brows, Feather Brows, Nano Brows, etc) are a great way to help create a flattering shape to the brows. The machine offers a more effective method of coloring and shading, leaving a soft, fluffy appearance to the brows, similar to brow powder makeup. The color is applied lighter toward the inner brow, for an "ombre " effect, and hairstrokes can also be added for a more realistic effect. This option is great for those who have over-tweezed in the past resulting in little to no regrowth, those with lighter or thinner brows, or those who want to skip filling in their brows with makeup. This procedure lasts about 2 hours and has zero - to - very minimal pain. Results last up to 3-5 years or longer, with regular touchups.
Lip Blush, (AKA Lip Tint, Cherry Lips, etc) iss a great option for those who want a more youthful appearance to their lips, because of natural pigment loss and lip line fading due to age, hyper/hypopigmentation / sun damage, and other factors. The result is a fresh lip color, a flattering, more youthful, even shape and appearance, and a flush of color for that "just bitten" look. You can even skip the lipstick for a natural, beautiful,, "wake up and go" look. During the appointment, which includes a consultation, a pre-sketch is drawn on the lips to give the outline of what the finished shape will look like. Lips may swell or bruise for some,, which is normal, but that usually goes away with in 24-48 hours. The color will soften and heal about 30-50% lighter. This procedure lasts about 2 hours and has zero-to-very minimal pain. Results last 1-3 years or longer, with regular touchups.
Lashline Enhancement / Eyeliner is a great service to darken the lashline and make the lashes appear fuller, eyes appear more awake and offering a flattering shape, thus also eliminating the need for eyeliner every day. Different effects can be done with this option, ranging from lashline only, to winged liner, to shadow liner. This procedure lasts about 2 hours and has zero-to-very minimal pain. Results last up to 5 years or longer, with regular touchups.
I am also pleased to offer Areola Reconstructive Repigmentation / 3D Nipple Tattoos. This service is primarily for women (or men) who have survived breast cancer and the surgeries associated with it. This tattoo includes the custom desired shape, coloring, and texture of a 3 dimensional nipple, complete with shadows and highlights to give a protruded look. This service can be filed with your insurance for reimbursement of payment.
The newest service I'm excited to offer is Scalp Micropigmentation. This procedure is ideal for men or women who have thinning hair or hair loss, and includes tattooing the scalp with simulated hair follicles, which gives the appearance of thicker hair. Men who are balding can also receive this treatment to give a look of a closely shaved head, and this can also bring the natural hairline forward if it has recessed. I am currently doing case studies on this procedure and I'm offering the treatment for an extremely discounted rate for those who are interested and qualify.
All services are performed under a physician's supervision.

Hey there! My name is Amy McMahan, and I am the owner of Inkfinite Beauty, which is the permanent cosmetics side of my larger brand, That Girl Amy Mack.
I have a been a photographer for more than half my life (and 15 years professionally). Additionally, I am a makeup and hair artist, lash artist, and licensed aesthetician. My specialty in all of my endeavors is to empower women, to boost confidence, and to celebrate the unique beautiful qualities that all of us have.
I am also a body art aficionado. When the opportunity to train and become certified as a cosmetic tattoo artist presented itself in early 2019, I felt like my two passions were merging together in a combined form - makeup and tattooing. Since adding this new service to my bag of skills, I have been studying and perfecting my craft in order to achieve the best results for my clients.
I currently hold professional certifications as a permanent makeup artist in powder brows, lip blushing/ lip tint, and lash liner enhancement, as well as paramedical tattoo, specializing in areola reconstruction repigmentation / 3D nipples, and most recently, scalp micropigmentation. I am also fully insured, and work under the supervision of a physician.
I pride myself on educating every client prior to any services and making sure they are completely comfortable with what to expect, as well as walking them through the entire aftercare process in order to get the best results. I am often complimented on how thorough I am with giving information, and my clients thank me for taking the extra time to explain the entire procedure in detail.
I would love to work with you and help you achieve your beauty goals! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me!
What is the difference between microblading and microshading / powder brows / ombre brows?
Microblading has gained popularity in recent years as the go-to for those who wanted to achieve a better shape and overall aesthetically pleasing eyebrows. The microblading method uses a group of small needles arranged into the shape of a blade, which are attached to a handheld tool to manually create small cuts into the skin to simulate hairstrokes. The next step involves covering those cuts with pigment, which is then wiped away, revealing a natural looking brow.
The microshading method involves a traditional or digital coil or rotary tattoo machine, and a variety of needles, from a single (nano) needle, to 3 or 5 needles, which are all arranged in a tight cluster. Pigment is applied using a variety of strokes, leaving behind a "powdery" look, much similar to powder brow makeup. Additional techniques, such as ombre and hairstrokes, can also be added for a natural but polished and enhanced look. It's ultimately a personal preference which method you choose, however those with thicker or oiler skin may find that microblading may not heal as easily or last as long as the microshading method.
I've heard it referred to as permanent and semi-permanent makeup. Which is it?
The term "permanent makeup" is easily recognizable in the cosmetic tattoo industry, and the older methods actually involved traditional tattoo ink, which left behind a very harsh and unnatural appearance. Additionally, brows were often tattooed with black ink, which faded to a blueish - greenish gray color many are left with today. The current method involves pigment instead of ink, which lasts between 1 - 5 years, depending on the type of procedure, as well as the client's skin type, aftercare procedures, and daily lifestyle. The tattoo can be left alone to fade as the years pass, or it can be touched up every year to maintain or enhance the color to keep it looking fresh.
Does it hurt?
For lip blushing and lash liner, a topical numbing anesthetic is applied prior to the procedure for a pain-free experience. The brows are not numbed beforehand. After the first pass on each procedure, a different type of topical anesthetic is applied to restrict blood flow and calm any instances of discomfort. Most of my clients claim a 0-3 on a sale of 10, and some have even slept through their appointments!
Am I a good candidate for cosmetic tattooing?
There are several factors that can effect retention therefore a consultation is necessary. Do not schedule a Microblading or Permanent Makeup Service if the following condition(s) apply to you:
Pregnant or Nursing

Platelet Disorders-Aggregation Disorders
An aggregation disorder is when platelets do not bind with fibrinogen and other proteins in order to stick to other platelets. As a result the platelets cannot form a plug to stop the bleeding from a damaged blood vessel.
Autoimmune Disorder of any kind (MS, RA, Lupus or the like) Due to the medicines to treat these diseases, pigment will not retain.
If you are on any of these medications, you will bleed and the pigment WILL NOT retain:
Is there anything I need to avoid or know before my procedure?
Social Events / Vacations - Scabbing and peeling of the tattooed area is a normal part of the healing process, and does not make for good pictures. It takes about 2 weeks for the brow area to finish exfoliating, and to be healed enough. Tattooing takes 4-8 weeks to completely heal. During this time, sun exposure, excessive sweating, heat, swimming must be avoided. Please make sure to schedule your procedure around social events such as weddings and vacations as to not compromise your tattoo.
NO alcohol or caffeine 24 hours before procedure (Yes, there is caffeine in decaf coffee and tea!).
If you have a history of cold sores, make sure to have a prescription to take 2 days before the procedure, day of the procedure and two days after the procedure.
