Where does one begin to express the amount of gratitude I have for the staff & training of True Life Canvas!5 Stars all across the board 100 times over!I have watched Hayley’s portfolio of clients evolve, and I have watched her grow as an artist of permanent cosmetics. She has proactively, and positively changed the lives of people in the community of Coeur d’Alene, and surrounding areas.I thought with what I do for a living, I wanted to add more to my arsenal of bodywork to help people in a different way. Also I could incorporate my love of art with permanent cosmetics as well. With deeper digging and research I decided to take the plunge and do True Life Canvas’ Fundamental Training. I do not regret it. The classroom setting is appropriate and perfect for the kinesthetic learner. I learned an invaluable amount of information, sanitation, OSHA standards, safety, and the consideration that a modest “less is more approach” with the 80 hours of training at TLC.The amount of money for the training is worth every penny. There benefits that you also gain in technique, ergonomics for practice. There were technicians in the trade that gave affirmations that this course was absolute GOLD! These technicians were kicking themselves (figuratively) wishing they would have started their training at TLC because they felt they would have been farther in their career with what they learned in the fundamentals class. Client safety and sanitation is HUGE, and an aggressive practice at TLC.Before I started to take my own clients I decided I would get my eyebrows tattooed on as well. I thought being able to experience the procedure I give to my clients would better my practice and technique.As a client coming into True Life Canvas I was welcomed to a comfortable environment. The workstation of Hayley’s was sanitary and I felt comfortable with the process being a client.Hayley took careful consideration of what curves and angles of my tattoo would compliment my eye structure, and face while she was mapping my eyebrows. She carefully chose the best pigment for my skin tone, eye color, and hair color. The topical anesthetic was a necessity to make the process easier. The procedure with paperwork took about an hour, which timing I know is different with every technician. I was incredibly surprised of the outcome! My eyebrows are beautiful. I didn’t think something like this would make me feel sexier, more beautiful, or simplifying the amount of time I spend putting eye makeup on and my daily routine of getting ready in the mornings! I didn’t experience any peeling or scabbing post-procedure. (Everyone is different how their body reacts to pigments, or ink with tattoos.)A few weeks later I took the 3D Advanced Areola Paramedical Training at True Life Canvas. This was another course well worth the money and time. This training is a bit more intimate in technique, and style. There are more contraindications to consider when working in the paramedical field of cosmetics. The amount of the reward as a technician can be heavy, and incredibly rewarding.With my training at True Life Canvas I feel empowered, well educated, and beautiful. I LOVE this industry, and to be involved in the family of students of True Life Canvas, also to represent a work of art for Hayley.I highly recommend exploring how the Staff at True Life Canvas could enhance cosmetic makeup for you. The cost is worth every dime, and if you have questions about your procedure you can be comfortable asking all the details before you make the investment. The Staff wants you to be comfortable with the procedure.I am excited to tattoo my lips, and eyeliner along with taking extra advanced courses, and using them in my own Paramedical Tattoo Practice. Thank you to the Staff at True Life Canvas!
