ABOUT US

Athens Premier Microblading Destination

My name is Brandi and I am the owner/operator of Beauty Marks Studio, located in Arbor Salon and Spa. I have over 20 years experience in the beauty industry. Making someone feel beautiful  is not just my passion, but my life’s work that inspires me daily.

I  was born and raised in Sunny South Florida, and now call eclectic Athens, Georgia my home. I grew up loving everything to do with beauty. I believe there is no wrong way, it’s your way. I feel  you should absolutley, without fail or compromise,  feel gorgeous in the skin you are in. It’s confidence that radiates from with in. I call that, the “Marilyn Effect”. The place where you hold your head a little higher, you pull your shoulders back and shoot that smoldering glare of confidence.  To know that you had a hand in creating that spark of sassiness, well,  that’s  where  Beauty intersects with joy and a mark is made. 


"Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about."

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that fills in thin or uneven eyebrow areas to make them look fuller and more symmetrical. Unlike traditional tattooing the results are not permanent but can last up to 3 years. 


Why Microblading?


Microblading gives you natural-looking, enhanced looking eyebrows instantly. You also won't have to touch them up throughout the day since microbladed eyebrows retain their size and shape. You'llonly have to dedicate a few hours every 1-3 years to have your eyebrows redone in most cases.


Microblading isn't only reserved for thin, sparse brows — even if you're blessed with naturally full ones. Microblading can enhance what's already there. The results are especially remarkable for people with thin brows and can be nearly life changing for people who live with alopecia.


In the case of cancer survivors and chemotherapy patients, beauty treatments like microblading, can be a major step toward regaining self-confidence and a sense of normalcy. 


(If you are planning to do microblading after chemo, Always check with your doctor for time frames) your safety and healing is number 1. 


Does Microblading Hurt?

Short answer, no. I use top numbing agents before and during. Traditionally more pain is associated with tattooing than microblading. 


How long Does Microblading Take?


First appointment is always the longest. Expect between 2-3 hours, and with touch up appointments that time shortens
