"There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."

Meet your instructor


I'm Alana Wallace, Owner and Cosmetic Tattoo Specialist / Educator at Studio Masami. My goal for the Cosmetic Tattoo industry is to raise industry standards & equip future technicians with all the knowledge necessary to provide quality within their work.

Since the start of my career, I've taken numerous training courses with world leading artists and educators to achieve my level of expertise in Eyebrow Artistry. I've created a curriculum that makes it easier for students to grasp the concept of Cosmetic Tattooing, & in addition to teaching all of the techniques I've perfected over the years, I'm ready to share all of the "how-to's" achieving the most sought after results of this treatment

"I knew it was time to use my expertise to help others. There is no better feeling than seeing that "AH - HA" moment on someone's face."

  • What are the CONTRAINDICATIONS to receiving a cosmetic tattoo?
    It is our policy to only treat clients who qualify for our services. If you neglect to do so and show up with any condition that makes you an unsuitable client, for your safety we will refuse service and you will lose your deposit.

  • What is semi-permanent makeup/ cosmetic tattooing?
    Cosmetic tattooing, also called “micropigmentation” is the process of implanting safe colored pigments into the dermis layer of the skin using a small handheld device composed of sterile disposable needle(s). This is a cosmetic procedure that may be applied to the upper or bottom eyeliners, eyebrows, and lips for a natural subtle enhancement.
  • Powdered ombre vs. Microblading?
    Both are forms of cosmetic tattooing, the main difference of the two is the technique used and the healed results after treatment. Unlike like the powdered ombre technique, microblading is the process of using a manual handheld penlike tool with a blade at the tip compose of tiny needles, this blade is dipped in pigment then used to make a controlled incision mimicking a hair stroke. The healed results of this technique is less predictable than the powdered ombre, and is not suitable for clients with oily or combination skin type.
  • Are you licensed and certified? Is the studio safe?
    Yes. Every technician at Studio Masami is licensed, certified, and insured for the services they provide. Licensing information is located under each technicians profile. The health of our clients are taken very seriously and the highest level of sanitation protocols are practiced. Only single use disposable needles and supplies are used for each treatment, and any equipment that has the potential of coming in contact with bodily fluids are thoroughly wrapped, discarded, then disinfected after each procedure.
  • Does it hurt?
    The pain tolerance will vary between clients, some feel little to no pain at all while other will experience slight discomfort. A topical anesthetic is used throughout the treatment but some factors will affect the skins ability to absorb the numbing such as frequent smokers or scar tissue from previous procedures done to the area being worked on. Every effort will be made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirely of the procedure.
  • Is there any down time following the procedure?
    No, brows might have some swelling and redness that’ll dissipate within the next few hours filling the procedure. Slight tenderness may be expected but nothing that’ll prevent you from carrying on your normal activities (besides working out, swimming, or excessive sweating). But it is advisable that you don't have your procedure 10 days before any special events or occasions, as the brows will go through a scab peeling stage.
  • How many treatments will I need?
    It is recommended that a minimum of two treatments are needed, your first treatment is also considered a testing period. A slightly lighter shade in color may be used for your initial session to assess how your skin retains and holds pigment, once the skin fully heals the color could fade up to 40%, this will also give you time to reflect on your shape and desired color. We will then darken if necessary or make any minor adjustments during your touch up treatment.
  • How long will my cosmetic tattoo last?
    It is considered semi-permanent, this means it will continue to fade over but will last as long as it is maintained. Untouched, the ink can last 1-3 years. Some factors that’ll affect the longevity of your brows are sun exposure, chlorine, exfoliants, AHA’s/ BHA in skin care products to name a few.
  • If I've already had PMU done elsewhere, will my appointment be considered a touch up?"
    No. If your brows have been done before it’ll be considered an initial appointment. You must contact us prior to booking for us to determine if your brows are workable or if laser removal will be needed before your appointment. Corrections can be very complicated, and results cannot be 100% guaranteed.
  • What can I expect during my appointment?
    The appointment can last anywhere between 2.5 to 3 hours. Once your skin is prepped and the before photo is taken, we will work on your desired brow shape together, ultimately it is your decision but I will voice my opinion on what I think suits your facial features and shape (this process will usually take the longest). Then we will go over different color options, I like to swatch 3 different colors that I think suits you best and will give you the option to select the final color. The actual tattoo process itself will take about an 1.5 hrs.
  • What can I expect during the next few days following my procedure?
    Your cosmetic tattoo will appear darker and continue to darken till about day 3, then they will start to itch and begin their peeling phase. In our opinion, this is the worst stage of the whole procedure, scabs will form and peel for the remainder of the healing process (about 5-7 days) bits will slough off here and there but it is VERY important not to scratch or pick them off, doing so could result in pigment loss and scar tissue. Everyone will heal differently but usually by day 10 the brows should be completely peeled.
  • What should I do before and after my procedure?
    Before: We recommend that clients grow their eyebrows out 4-6 weeks before their appointment, it isn't necessary but the more brow here that there is to work with the more better and natural the results will look, we will clean up any hairs outside of the shape during your appointment. It is not recommended to show up to your appointment with brows that are tinted as it will not reflect the true color of the pigment. If you decide to wax or thread your brows before your appointment please do so at least 3 days before. No blood thinning medications (aspirin, ibuprofen) for at least 72 hours prior to your appointment. If you've used accutane before, you must wait one year before having the procedure done. Please avoid drinking alcohol the night before and day of your appointment, and limit the amount of caffeine intake. It's also recommended that you come with your usual everyday make up, and lashes if you wear any. Brow area will be prepped before the shaping process, but it will be easier for the technician to understand what everyday brow shape style is best based on your usual everyday look. After: Before going to sleep following your appointment, soak a cotton ball in boiled warm water and gently press and soak of any plasma that has built up following the procedure. Then apply a thin layer of the provided ointment on the eyebrows. Follow the aftercare instructions that we have discussed for the remainder of the healing process.
