It’s really rare that I leave a review but this time just have to. Dasha did my eyebrows and it turned out better than expected. The healing process was basically just a few days and the outcome was totally worth it. I always had very light brows and wanted to have them darker with a more elegant shape. I don’t know why I waited so long to finally do it. Definitely will be back for an eyeliner as well. Thank you Dasha!!!

Had a very good experience! Dasha explained the process well and made me feel very comfortable! The tattoo itself was an uncomfortable scratching at most or felt like nothing at all thanks to the numbing cream. Healing took about a week and there was some scabbing but the final result looks amazing!! Thank you Dasha!

I had my eyebrows tattooed at WPM. I found Dasha explained everything in detail beforehand. It wasn't painful, and I was totally relaxed throughout the procedure. I absolutely love the result.

Dasha is really lovely to deal with. As someone who has had a mastectomy and reconstruction and wished to have a nipple "tattooed" on I was very impressed by the available colors to choose from and her attentive nature. I was pleasantly surprised that the procedure was not painful and healed up beautifully within days. I experienced no pain the days following and no scabbing or infection. The result is very natural and matches my other breast really well. I only wish I had come in sooner to get it done! Highly recommended!

I had my top and bottom eyeliner done at WPM.I was a bit nervous not really knowing what to expect, but Dasha was very good with explaining the process and allowing me to ask lots of questions before we started. She asked exactly what I wanted before she started and continuously checked in with me on how I am feeling, and gave me a mirror to have a look at what she has already done, and if I am happy with it or would like to add to the line.My eyes were completely numb before she started the procedure and I could not feeling anything while she was busy, after a while my left I became very sensitive and it became a bit unbearable, she then applied a stronger anaesthetic to the eye, and when she started again it was completely numb.I walked out of the room knowing that I got exactly what I wanted, the swelling was minimal and the healing process a breeze. For about a week after the procedure my eyelids was a bit itchy in places, but nothing too serious. The swelling was completely gone around day 10, and the scabs off by 4 weeks.I would like to do my eyebrows next, and have every confidence that I will get the exact outstanding quality of work done by Dasha again!

I recently had my eyebrows done by Dasha and I am so pleased with the results. Dasha is so lovely and makes you feel really comfortable. I was a little nervous at first, to have someone messing around with my eyebrows but she's a pro and knows what she is doing! I was expecting it to be a bit painful but if anything just felt slightly scratchy, it was totally bearable. The healing process for me was great, I had some slight flakiness of my skin but no crusts or sores. I have just had my touch up session today and there was some itchiness afterwards but that has now gone away. I highly recommend going to see Dasha, she will take good care of you 🙂

I researched Dasha and followed everything she did for around 6 months before I felt confident that I had found the right lady for my eyebrows and top liner. I am a professional makeup artist and have worked on high profile stars all over the world so attention to detail is my number one thing. Dasha’s attention to detail is SO incredible and her passion shines through her work. I totally felt 100 percent confident that she wasn’t just a beautician but a true artist !!! Dasha fully understood that there were so many factors to be aware of like facial structure, personal expression, underlying skin under tones and was a master at understanding colour and how it would react with different skin tones. I was impressed how she followed to a T☝️ my very detailed brief that I’m sure a lot of people would of rolled their eyes at .....and she NAILED it 🙌🏻🙌🏻. I have had tattoos before but this treatment certainly does not hurt anywhere near as much. Dasha put on a numbing cream and once she started my brows it felt a little like an annoying scratch, like a strong microdermabrasion . Totally doable! I was a little more nervous about having my top eyeline done as I figured this would be quite a sensitive area. Dasha uses an anaesthetic around the eye so again, totally doable! The only painful thing is whatever is used on a cotton tip to wipe away extra pigment once she starts, that has a slight sting to it where the skin has been broken. Dasha told me I would get small crusts for a few days while it was healing but I was fortunate enough not to have this happen.I had my brows and top line done in June and I came back for my second top up (check up) in October. I did not want any extra added to my brows because being so fair I wanted them to look natural and still be able to see skin through them. I didn’t want to look like I had a face full of makeup on when my face had been washed and in my PJs, I feel they are the perfect tone 👌 but I still can sass them up for an evening outToday I decided to have my top line darkened (so its fresh and darker than it will end up), I also braved just a small outer edge lower line in a beautiful brown.... again will fade around 40 percent but just perfect for blonde lashes to give a little root definition.I know this is a long read but I find the more research the better!I know anyone planning on going to Wellington Permanent Makeup will not be disappointed, i even sent my 75 year old mother along for new eyebrows and she is thrilled 😁 Dasha, you are a true STAR ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

SMP is life changing, therefore you want an artist you can trust. Dasha takes pride in her work with years of experience. She explained everything very well, with no surprises left. Dasha makes costumer satisfaction priority.The procedure itself can be described as “unpleasant” at times, but not painful. The healing takes a few days with no downtime at work.I can highly recommend getting in touch with Dasha if you’re looking into a SMP procedure.
00:31 25 Jul 19
I have had SPM done before by other professionals in New Zealand and overseas in the last 10 years but Dasha is by far the best service and results! She is not only warm and caring but strives for your satisfaction and safety above all else. I was shocked how quickly my eyeliner and eyebrows healed (within a week for the first time, and in a day for the touch up!). The shape and lines were immaculate and natural, and the colour was matched perfectly. You will not find a better artist in Wellington - thank you Dasha!
10:29 20 Jul 19
I had natural-looking eyeliner done here. She's the best in Wellington.
22:54 16 Jul 19
Dasha is professional, really knowledgeable in her field, and so lovely. She did SPM for my eyebrows, which were nearly non-existent prior to tattooing. She took plenty of time to choose the correct colour and shape. She really made me feel at ease and confident in her abilities. I am so happy with the result. The healing process was pretty awkward at times! The scabbing looked awful for a few days. Dasha was totally reassuring when I called her concerned. I followed her after care instructions and sure enough the result was amazing. Saves me so much time in the morning, and no more spending money on expensive eyebrow pencils. Thank you Dasha!!
01:05 13 Jun 19
Dasha is very professional and listens well. The process was pain free and the results of my eyebrow makeup was great.
20:27 08 Jun 19
Dasha is a sweetheart !excellent work and results very understanding , patient and loving !
08:21 05 Mar 19
Dasha is amazing. So talented and professional. I got my eyebrows done and was a bit worried about the pain but it was totally ok and her instructions easy to follow and maintain for the healing period. I have dark skin and it doesn't always react well to procedures with possible scarring but my skin looks great after Dasha's work. I had previous work done on my eyebrows elsewhere and the pigment used wasn't a natural colour when it faded. Dasha's pigments look natural and the result is great.
03:25 25 Jan 19
Dasha is AMAZING! Hard to find the words to emphasize just how professional and talented she is. I had top & bottom eyeliner done and it looks absolutely STUNNING!! If you have any concerns about getting eyeliner done, or you have had a bad experience before, you have absolutely nothing to worry about in Dasha's hands. Not only is she extremely professional and absolutely lovely, but she is extremely talented - her work is gorgeous!!!I had a bad experience getting my eyeliner done at another place a few years ago. They were very unprofessional, the tattooist was awfully rough and they accidentally tattooed dots on my bottom lash line... But Dasha was the complete opposite. She has a beautiful set up, with blankets and relaxing music, etc. She made absolute sure I was comfortable the entire time, she went slowly and kept checking I wasnt in much pain. She explained what she was doing throughout the process, what products she was using and preparing me for what it might feel like (if the anesthesia would tingle or when the lower lash line might be more sensitive, etc.). She's also gives you her professional opinion about what looks good, etc.Could not have imagined eyeliner would look this beautiful!
07:43 24 Jan 19
I was a little scared to first have my eyebrows done, but I was tired of drawing them on everyday so decided to go ahead and do it. It didn’t hurt and they look way better than I had expected but I love most that they also look natural - great colour and shape and a super professional and relaxing environment. A wonderful way to feel good about myself and cut back on self presentation time.

I visited Dasha for my first ever SMP treatment and was very impressed with how friendly and professional she was throughout the procedure. She goes the extra mile in taking care of her clients and making sure they are comfortable during treatments, as well as being thorough in her follow ups to make sure everything is healing as it should post-treatment. Highly recommend her service - 5 stars!
21:44 13 Oct 18
Dasha delivers what she promises, and more. I had my eyebrows done, and she followed up with touch-up treatments twice to ensure I was happy with the end result. The first time the ink was too faint, so she re-did the whole procedure a few weeks later. The second time the brows looked a bit unevenly inked. So she spent another hour getting it just right. She is a perfectionist - she wants her clients to be 100% happy - and only that result counts for her. I highly recommend Dasha - I am confident she applies the same attitude and skill to all other procedures she offers.
07:25 28 Aug 18
This was my first Permanent Make-up experience. I got my eyebrows and eyeliner done. I felt safe as Dasha was very considerate, neat and gentle.I'm very satisfied with the final results. It looks very natural and emphasizes my eyes. It's a great time saver as I don't need to spend hours every morning to do my make up.If you are about to get your period it can be a bit sensitive. When I went for my second session (touch up) it was fine as I didn't have my period.
01:37 08 Sep 17
I have had the best experience getting my eyeliner done. Dasha is extremely talented and I honestly did not feel any pain during the process.
04:21 30 Jul 17
Love my new nipples. Done with Dasha, after living for years self consciously I feel amazing. So natural and beautiful, nobody will ever know they're fake! Expected it to be painful and uncomfortable but it was quite the opposite. Wonderful girl and wonderful work, will recommend to everybody.
07:41 04 Jul 17
Dasha is absolutely amazing! She is honestly one of the loveliest people I have ever met, she is so professional and obviously really cares about making people look and feel amazing with her permanent makeup! Truly, I cannot recommend her enough -- you'll feel like she's your best friend by the time your session is over, and you'll look absolutely incredible. I was really nervous about getting my eyeliner tattooed (and was a total wimp from start to finish) but Dasha was just great with me.
02:14 02 Jul 17
Dasha did my eyebrows and it was such a pleasant experience. I was afraid it would hurt as I am not very good with pain, but she uses anaesthetic cream so pain was not an issue. Overall the procedure was such a comfortable positive experience and now I have pretty, shapely eyebrows. My natural skin tone is very light so Dasha found a gentle brown shade for me that looks natural on my face. Thoroughly recommend to anyone who is after some impeccable permanent make up and values comfort and feeling taken care of during procedure.
20:58 27 Jun 17
Highly recommend Dasha! She was extremely professional and friendly throughout the whole experience. She is very thorough – ensuring the look I wanted suited my face as well as matched what I wanted. She made sure I was comfortable throughout and ensured the experience was as pain free as possible. Extremely impressed by the service I received.

DASHA! My goodness where to start! I met Dasha earlier on this year and I had my eyebrows done with this wonderful technician. From the moment I met her, Dashas nature is one which is genuine, caring and most certainly THOROUGH! She kept in contact and ensured I was always happy with the end product. I believe that Dasha is amazing value, yet also she is one who has done an amazing job on my eyebrows!!! I recommend Dasha highly, because she took great care of me and what mattered, was my comfort and my happiness-. Dasha has such a warm and inviting personality and as well, she delivers greatly with her skilled hand-with the amazing work she does, to enhance the beauty of people who are wanting it! I recommend Dasha highly. I don't think I could go elsewhere, even though the work Dasha has done will last 3+ years! You have a loyal customer Dasha and I encourage for more to seek out this amazing technician. I am so happy with my end product and I am so thankful for the amazing care, Dasha took into helping me look & feel great.10 out of 10 Dasha. You are amazing!

Dasha is so lovely and gentle. She helps you to feel relaxed and checks in as to pain levels as well. For me it was a painless experience and so quick. The result has been amazing and much better than I expected having never really had eyebrows before. I would highly recommend Dasha!
My experience with Dasha has been fantastic. I now have beautiful brows to frame my face. It's not a painful process (just a little discomfort) which is well worth the end result. I highly recommend her - next lips!
I had eyeliner with a wing. Dasha asked me to share my experience as it was not the usual experience most people have and it’s good to know the range of possibilities of this procedure. I will preface this by saying I am a very sensitive baby with no pain tolerance and I expected this to be rather uncomfortable for me.The first session was very uncomfortable. The numbing cream helped for the first pass over my eye but I could feel an uncomfortable scratching sensation on the second pass. I was feeling a high level of discomfort on the final pass. Dasha was very kind and patient with me... and ran cool water over my eyes and applied a second numbing cream to help alleviate the discomfort. My eyes were swollen for longer than anticipated- about 36 hours rather than the expected 24. I did not experience any itching pain or discomfort during the healing process. I only had a light amount of flaking around day 5. Once it was healed I was very pleased with the result. The eyeliner was dark and even. My second session Dasha recommended I take a Panadol 20 mins before my appointment. She also left the numbing cream on my eyes for an additional 10 minutes. As I wanted a thicker line we had 4 passes to do this time. I couldn’t feel anything on the first pass. The second pass was a very light scratching. The 3rd pass was uncomfortable and the last pass I was squeezing the stress ball quite firmly. Dasha worked quickly. It’s been 4 hours since my second session and I can feel my eyes are rather swollen but I’m in no pain or discomfort. Dasha was very personable, caring and professional. She let me know what to expect every step of the way and let me play my own Spotify playlist during the sessions. She provided clear instructions for after care and the healing process and sent me high quality before and after photos. She was very fun to talk to and anticipated my needs by having a blanket and stress ball available during the session. If you are interested in getting SPM I highly recommend Dasha- just beware the other reviews that say the discomfort isn’t that bad may not be the same experience you will have if you are on the more sensitive side.read more
Whatever I say here about this artist as a person and about her work will not be enough. The photos speak the truth of her amazing skill so I’ll give you some practical experience. (I had brows and lash line done.) The tattooing feels like a scratching, nothing more. I was afraid my eyes would have to be open for the lash line. They weren’t. As for healing, I didn’t experience any flaking at all. As the colour lightened from the original brightness, I could see powdery particles in my brows but only with a 10x mirror. I am ecstatic with the final result.
Amazing work on my microbladed brows. Dasha talked through the whole process before we got started, checked in on my pain along the way which was really low, and kept me cozy with a lovely blanket - bliss!Thank you 😘
Had a very good experience! Dasha explained the process well and made me feel very comfortable! The tattoo itself was an uncomfortable scratching at most or felt like nothing at all thanks to the numbing cream. Healing took about a week and there was some scabbing but the final result looks amazing!! Thank you Dasha!
Dasha is such a wonderfully talented artist with a real eye for detail and perfection. I got both eyeliner and powder brows from her and I am sooooo happy with the results. She is personable and listens to her clients input. The pain is minimal as she applies an anaesthetic cream to the treatment area. She checks in with her clients periodically to make sure they are happy and comfortable. I will defenatly be returning when it’s time for my colour boost. Thanks so much! 💖💖💖
Dasha is so gentle and nice. I didnt experience any pain while having my liner tattooed and recovery was a breeze. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Dasha is amazing and a perfectionist at what she does. She also explains the healing and aftercare process really well, so I wasn't worried when my healing took a bit longer than standard. Love my brows, thank you!
Great service, highly professional, would strongly recommend Dasha.
Dasha is very professional, well-trained and did a great job on my eyebrows. it was pain free and whilst it faded a bit , a touch up fixed that. recommended.

I am very happy with Dasha's work. She is an absolute professional and her attention to detail is the reason why I will keep on going back to her and recommend her to everyone for permanent makeup. I am a makeup artist myself, so I am very particular and fussy - Dasha is a perfectionist. My brows are on point and its so awesome to wake up with perfect brows everyday. I've had my brows done before and it was a painful process, not with Dasha...she used a numbing cream that actually worked and I couldn't feel a thing. I recommend Dasha and her work to everyone considering permanent makeup... that wants a beautiful experience at the same time. Highly recommend! ; ) Chloeread more
Amazing results with the permanent eyebrows makeup which I have had done recently! The original shape of my eyebrows was beautifully outlined with a touch of a correction applied in a professional way. I was impressed with Dasha's advise on the selection of colours-my eyebrows look very natural and make my eyes look more attractive. I appreciate Dasha's time to explain the procedure and answer my questions patiently. The procedure itself was not painful as it was done under a local anaesthetic. I have had an Amazing experience so far and have highly recommended Wellington Permanent Makeup... to my friends.Yuliyaread more
Yesterday I went for my follow up appointment with Dasha. We discussed colour and shape of my eyebrows and also how my 1st tattoo had healed. Well, It didn’t itch and it didn’t crust at all. This time we modified the shape and filled in a bit more colour. Honestly if Dasha had not spoken to me when she did I would have been asleep. It was so gentle , not at painful and quite therapeutic. I can definitely recommend Dasha she is perfectionist and a lovely gentle person that cares 100% about her clients.
wow love Dasha and her work...she is gentle kind, and professional, would I see her again it's a big fat yes from me...Thank you Dasha love my eye liner and it did not hurt, I highly recommend, I have had this done before, but not with such grace & care xxx

Taking the step and having eyeliner done was easy - Dasha is very professional and looks after you the whole way. I was a bit apprehensive having a procedure done soo close to my eyeballs but Dasha explains the whole process step by step and puts you at ease. The area being tattoo'ed is numbed with a cream and actually tickles to begin with during the process. Dasha is a perfectionist (which is expected!) so I could feel some of the application in areas where she was getting the eyeliner 'just right' but it is totally bearable and well worth the result!!!
Karen Martinez Royal
I live in the � United States,came to Wellington for vacation with my wonderful husband. Have been wanting to get my eyebrows done for some time now. Wow! She did a great job!! And she is wonderful.
Dasha is a pro, and I am very pleased with my semi-permanent makeup. It looks very natural, and never smears! I had my eyebrows done, and the procedure didn't hurt at all, but I found the healing process a bit uncomfortable and itchy. Tattooing the eyelids(eyeliner) was definitely a bit more sensitive, but less bothersome in the healing process. Overall, best decision ever.
Dasha is amazing, listens to exactly what you want and doesn’t mind taking the time to come up with the perfect shape. Highly professional service, would recommend to everyone!
I cannot express how glad I am I decided to get my eyebrows tattooed with dasha. She has been exceptional throughout the experience and I could not ask for more. She is extremely talented and will understand exactly it is you want. She also genuinely cares about the outcome and will help you feel very at ease.
Amity Rose Alton-Lee
I'm so happy with the results of my eyeliner and Dasha is super lovely and totally put me at ease. Very Highly recommended!!
Highly recommend! I got my eyebrows done by Dasha. She made me feel verry comfortable! The thing I was nervous most about was the pain but the whole time I felt nothing! No pain at all which was great! 🙂
I HIGHLY recommend Dasha to everyone!!! Dasha tattooed my eyebrows and liner, and i can honestly say it didn't hurt one bit. Dasha is also kind and caring, making this a pleasurable experience. 😃 I will definitely be back! 💖
I got my eyebrows done by Dasha and am so happy with the results. She was very informative throughout the procedure and made me feel so comfortable every step of the way. It was painless and easy, I highly recommend!
Great results! Excellent service! Highly recommended!

“ I was really impressed with the time Dasha took to explain the process and what to expect. She was very informative and reassuring. After a couple of touch-up sessions I am very happy with the final result. I highly recommend Dasha.”
Can't recommend highly enough 🙂
“ I've had such a lovely experience with Dasha! I was, of course, nervous for a semi permanent procedure but it's so clear that Dasha really knows what she's doing and she immediately alleviated my anxiety by explaining everything so thoroughly and clearly to me. I am so so so happy with my results and had such a nice time chatting with Dasha whenever I went in for a session 🙂 Thanks again for everything, Dasha!”
“ To Anyone Who Seeks The Best I could not be more delighted to recommend Dasha from the Wellington Permanent Make Up Studio. I am 64 and have had my brows tattooed 4 times in my life - the first three I can only describe as adequate. From the moment I met Dasha not only did she instantly put me at ease but listened closely to what I wanted to achieve and then proceded with quite extraordinary knowledge and professionalism to explain and give me what I was hoping for. Dasha was meticulous and solicitous. It was a manageable discomfort - in spite of my natural desire to sneeze. The healing went well. I experienced a slight 1cm reddening on one brow which I could feel but was not painful. This eased over a short period of time keeping brows clean with cold boiled water. I absolutely ADORE them. At my age I had started to feel a little invisible but by having my brows tattooed it has completely brought my face alive - particularly my eyes. Dasha is a quite lovely, charming lass to know and I consider her personally a privilege to have in my life. However let me make it very clear Dasha is one of the most well informed, professional tattoo therapists I have known. I am going to be a client that will keep coming back when the need arises. Or even to try something new. Sincerely Sara A supremely grateful client.”
- Sara C. M. Skerman
“ Having my eyebrows and eyelids done in one sitting was brilliant. Dasha is fastidious about hygiene and did a fantastic job (make-up artists could not believe how realistic my brows look). If you're worried about pain, don't be. It's like having your eyebrows plucked. And the healing process was quick too - after two weeks my brows looked just like they were my own. I highly recommend Dasha - she's not only professional but lovely!”
Fantastic eyebrows from a lovely lady.
“ Dasha is very professional and caring in her approach and took the time to understand what look I was wanting. The touch up process was fantastic and perfect timing. I'm very happy with my brows and the information and advice I received from Dasha about the healing process and how best to manage my eyebrows during that time. Thank you! 🙂”
- Urvashi Dhanjee
“ 'Már több éve fontolgattam és 2020 szeptemberében csináltattam meg a szemöldök tetoválásom Dashánál, ahol maximális figyelmet és professzionalizmust kaptam. Itt valóban a vendég számít, tehát én 🙂 Az eredmény teljesen természetes. Hihetetlen, hogy az ismerőseim egyike se vette észre, hogy ez tetoválás. Nem értem, hogy tudtam eddig nélküle élni, reggelente megspórolok 10 percet...Maximálisan elégedett vagyok, életem egyik legjobb döntése volt.'”
“ Really pleased with my brows; basically painless process and straight forward healing with minimal flaking. Brows appear full and well defined yet maintain a natural aesthetic. Excellent result after follow up visit - brows frame the face and maintain a more youthful appearance.”
Thank you, Dasha!
“ Dasha hat sehr leichte hand. Fast eingeschlafen während procedure. Paar Tagen ungewöhnliche Gefühl an der Haut after. Und jetzt, jedesmal wenn ich ins Spiegel shaue, sehe ich eine schöne und selbstbewusste Frau! Vielen Dank Dasha!”
Amazing, no pain at all!
“ I’ve had my eyeliner and lips done with Dasha, and all I am say is she is an absolute pro! If you are considering SPM at all, look no further- Dasha is the one! It did not hurt at all, she ensures the pigment colour was exactly as I wanted, and am so happy with the finished result. Thank you Dasha!”
“ Dasha is wonderful to work with. I went to her to have a nipple tattoo placed on my reconstructed breast after breast cancer surgery. I was really impressed with the large amount of pigments to choose from and her attentive and caring nature. The procedure didn’t take long and was not painful. It looked great and healed quickly with no infection, abrasion or scabbing. I left the protective film on for as long as she suggested and it healed beautifully. I would be happy to see Dasha again for any similar procedures.”
Tattoo Upper & Lower Eyelids
“ Dasha is amazing. Very patient and kind. I had my upper and lower eyelids tattooed. I initially got the lower lids only done, but in my first follow up I also got the upper lids done because I liked the result so much. I experienced very minimal swelling and no scabs afterwards. It was a bit uncomfortable during the procedure, but nothing that put me off. It does take quite a long time, so be prepared to be at the appointment for a while. Dasha was extremely committed to getting me a result I would be happy with. I highly recommend her and am keen to find out what other procedures she might be able to do for me. Thanks Dasha x”
Perfect and perfectly natural!
“ Dasha is fantastic! I had my brows and top liner done when I lost all my hair, brows and lashes from chemo. I was very nervous about it -- I remember my mom having permanent make up done in the 80's/90's and it was very obvious and later turned blue! But Dasha was a total pro and assured me it would be perfectly natural looking. Honestly, no one would ever know and I wish I had done it ages ago. It was a lifesaver after chemo as I felt like I looked normal. Now that everything has grown back, it just makes me look a bit more polished and makes my make up routine super easy. If you're thinking about it, I say go for it! Highly, highly recommend Dasha!”
“ I had only recently seen examples in the media of people who had undergone micro-pigmentation, and was very impressed with the natural looking results. So – I then did what most people do – and googled it. To be honest I was almost put off with the odd picture looking like people had a helmet on their head. I am pleased that I then searched further to find Dascha at Wellington Permanent Makeup Studio. Dascha was such a great find. She is very knowledgeable and professional, and I consider myself very lucky to have happened across her website. She told me what to expect at every stage, explained the pricing, and outlined the potential downsides. Her approach is very cautious and over the sessions she learned how my skin reacted to the treatment and the ink and adjusted her technique accordingly – so I got the best result for me. I really can’t recommend her highly enough. She’s great. A few of the key things I learnt were as follows: (1) It doesn’t hurt that much. I popped a few Panadol before each session and the pain only ever got to a 5/10 and then only briefly. (2) It didn’t change my appearance immediately. I was very concerned that I would look very different the very next day. It didn’t. It was actually quite gradual. Overall it took 3 application totaling about 6-7 hours of treatment all up. It also helped that I am a tall guy, and had some hair at the sides and the top – and people aren’t usually looking down at my head anyway. Each time I had treatment on the Thurs – then took the fri off work, and there was no redness etc there on the Monday. (3) For best results the hair you do have needs to be trimmed down to a 0 for the look to be most effective. Mine was initially a 1 – and after the treatment that looked a bit odd until I reduced it to a 0. In fact – reducing it to a 0 when you have the treatment is another way of confusing people as to exactly what has changed with your look. (4) Post treatment is a bit of a hassle. Not getting my head wet for 4 days was annoying, but no big deal really. There was only 1 day when the head was slightly itchy. Dascha recommended an antihistamine if that happens. It almost goes without saying that I am very very pleased with the results, and will definitely go back to Dascha for touch up work every 2-3 years (as required). If you are unsure as to if you should get this done – I wouldn’t hesitate, as long as it is with someone as professional and good at what they do as Dascha.”
I'd recommend her to anyone
“ I emailed three permanent make-up artists in Wellington, but Dasha was the only one who wrote a professional response that gave me enough confidence to trust her with a tattoo gun near my eyes. I have a scar on my lash line, so there is a gap where several lashes are missing, but Dasha was patient and empathetic as we discussed the best way to manage the scar tissue and create shading so that it hides the missing lashes. I'm very happy with the result and I feel more confident now that my lashes look even on both sides. I'd recommend her to anyone who is self-conscious about a scar or a problem they want to cover.”
“ When I first met with Dasha I had almost invisible eyebrows from previous chemotherapy and this had affected my confidence. She went through the process in great detail before I chose to go ahead. The anaesthetic cream was great and I didn’t feel any pain while the procedure was being done. In the following days as part of the healing process the skin peeled and was barely noticeable. The end result was my new beautifully shaped eyebrows in a lovely shade of brown. Dasha made me feel at ease and comfortable when I was in her studio. She is very professional and pays a lot of attention to detail. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone of any age. Book an appointment with Dasha, you will not regret it!”
“ It was my first ever eyeliner tatoo, and first ever doing tatoo on my body. So I was little concerned at the begging just like many others about unexpected injuries, damages, pain during the process, or whether it's permanent and how long it would take to be completely removed after all, etc. Dasha was very professional and honest, she explained me about the process, after procedure care, possible outcomes and every questions I had. I was relieved and impressed. Later in the middle of the process, I wanted to have my eyeliner thicker, but she told me about a risk that the ink might spread out through the vein as our skin becomes thinner... I was glad she told me that before I made any stupid decision that might cause an issue. The result was amazing, I am saving lots of time every in the morning now, and it was the best thing I have done in this year so far!”

“ For me Dasha was a life-saver. I had a nasty first attempt at eyebrow tattooing and the result was not good! Dasha's reassurance and professional advice helped restore not only my eyebrows but my confidence. It is well worth taking the time to seek out the professionally skilled and experienced beautician. BTW: My pain threshold is low but in Dasha's hands the process was a breeze - I even snored once(!) I know the healing process has to take it course but Dasha quiet manner and reassurance to let 'the crusts' be (don't pick!), be patient as they will fall off within a week or so revealing a work of art is well noted. I now have brilliant brows that are not only natural looking, a wonderful shape but also in my very own matching hair colour. Thank you Dasha.”
Dasha is Lovely
“ Dasha was very expert, gentle, and thorough. I had eyeliner done in first session. For some reason the colour didn’t take. So, Dasha completely redid it at my touch up visit, using a different dye. Now it is perfect. Dasha also did my eyebrows. She measures carefully and draws them on so that you can check you are happy with the shape. They look gorgeous(if I do say so myself)! In terms of pain, I felt a little before the anaesthetic was applied, but after that I fell asleep on the table because I felt no pain- for eyebrows. For eyeliner, I started to feel some pain, so Dasha reapplied more anaesthetic and was patient to wait until it took effect. I’m very happy with my results. I highly recommend Dasha.”
“ I have done permanent makeup before (2x), and this by far was the most thorough and comfortable experience I have had. Dasha explained everything in detail, the procedure step-by-step, the after care etc. Never once did I feel nervous and communication was crystal clear. I was expecting my eyes to swell up (as it did previously when I got mine done at another location) but Dasha offered great tips (e.g. reduce your intake of liquids post treatment). There was pretty much little to no downtime and I was able to carry on as usual the next day. I highly recommend Dasha - you can tell she loves what she does because the results show it. I will definitely be visiting again. Thank you Dasha!”

“ After researching a lot about what would be involved in permanent makeup, i decided to go for my free consultation with Dasha to talk through my options. From the first meeting i felt she was confident enough in her art and knowledgeable enough in her experience that I decided to go for my top eyeliner and was prepared for the pain level involved, since its a tattoo on your eyelid! To my utter surprise the pain level was very low and her light hand was done with a gentle touch that made the experience almost enjoyable! I was so happy with my results that i decided to come back and have my eyebrows done too and that one was even less pain than the eyeliner. in fact the only discomfort and I felt was the initially tweezers plucking she did to get the shape right! I would highly recommend Dasha and her work. She takes into consideration not just what you think you want, but also long term how it would look and what would actually suit your face and skin tone and color, making the decision at the end one taken with certainty that the result would be great!”
“ Great service! I liked everything, thank you!”
