We are similar in many, many ways,
But our attitudes on make-up differ significantly.
Utilization of Make-up:
Mother: Moderate use of make-up is key to looking professional
Daughter: Little to none for a natural look
Desired Goal for Permanent Make-up:
Mother: Achieve a “finished” look with minimal effort
Daughter: Add slight color and definition to enhance overall
Mother: A “mistake” based on a previous experience
Daughter: Pain and a dark prominent look
Mother & Daughter: Fantastic, exceeded expectations

Nearing completion of reconstruction
surgery following bilateral mastectomy, my surgeon gave me
information from Elaine’s Artistic Touch on tattooing to
complete the reconstruction.
As I read the explanation of what could be done, and checked out
the website, I became curious about the other procedures Elaine
Having gone through the mastectomy and entering the 70 age
bracket, I was depressed about aging and health issues. I called
Elaine and talked with her about the repigmentation of the
aureola complex and eyeliner, as my lashes are almost
Even over the phone, I sensed her compassion and expertise in
her work. Meeting her in person confirmed my phone impression.
I was so happy—ecstatic is more accurate— with the results of
the eyeliner that I scheduled total face permanent makeup
procedures. Elaine is a joy to work with, and soon I told her to
do what she thought best for my face and coloring, and she was
absolutely right in each case. The very last procedure was what
first brought me to Elaine in the first place— the
repigmentation of the aureola complex.
Looking in the mirror now, I still see an aging woman, but she
is much more attractive and does not appear as aged as she did a
Often when I am out with my significant other, I catch him
staring at me. Asking what he is thinking, he says, “You look
like you spent half an hour putting on makeup. It looks
absolutely natural, and you look great!”
Thank you Elaine for transforming not only my face, but my life
What an amazing experience I was
able to have with Elaine. She was so knowledgeable and
personable with me, that I am literally looking for other
reasons to go back to see her. I truly felt like she listened to
my concerns and we walked thru the different options together.
She was very reasonable with her pricing and always took extra
care to make sure that I was informed and comfortable. I love
the results and am so grateful to her and her amazing work!
I am one of those unfortunate people
born with sparse brows in a terrible shape, and I am also one of
those people who used to have to dodge anyone/anything from
touching my perfectly draw in brows. I was really
self-conscience of my old eyebrows. Doing my brows was a timely
ordeal (30 mins to an hour) everyday for the past 20 years.
I decided to get my eyebrows done in June 2016, when I saw a
co-worker who got her perfectly tattoo-ed brows by Elaine 6+
years and it looked incredibly natural--that was my selling
point. I have seen my fair share of badly tattoo-ed brows and
honestly even after I walked through the door I was scared and
nervous. At the initial consult with Elaine, I was sold from the
moment she penciled on my soon to be permanent brows!
The procedure started off with Elaine designing your desire
eyebrow shape. She patiently drew my eyebrows with a makeup
pencil and did not stop correcting them until I was completely
satisfied. Of course, I was never 100% sure until I saw the end
result, which cannot be fully determined until a week after the
procedure. It is worthy to note that immediately after the
procedure your eyebrow color will appear to be very dark, even a
bit unnatural. However, if you don't mention it to others, they
would just think you were wearing a darker color of makeup that
day. After a week, color will slowly fade to its most natural
state and your eyebrows will look so natural. Elaine's technique
is excellent; she truly is the PABLO PICASO of freehand work for
eyebrows. She cuts small lines in different directions to make
the tattoo eyebrows look just like natural grown hairs - a three
dimensional effect. Elaine is such a beautiful and kind person
inside and out; your experience with her be relaxed and
effortless. She is a true perfectionist and expertise in her
field! THANK THE HEAVENS FOR THIS BLESSING OF AN ESTABLISHMENT.
In the end, I left with HAPPY TEARS.
PRETTY MUCH I love my eyebrows and this was one of the best
decisions ever made. They look incredibly natural and honestly
no one knows unless I tell them.
If you are considering this procedure I would definitely
recommend you to go with Elaine at Artistic Touch!
YOU ARE SPOT ON!!
Saw this article by Tucson’s Dr. Weil, and thought about what
you said about why our eyeliner and eyebrows fade more on the
left side than the right.
By the way, mine look great; you did a splendid job, as usual!
"Driving Skin And Eyes Into
Trouble by Andrew Weil, M.D.
"Did you know that most people are more likely to develop a
cataract in their left eye and skin cancer on the left side of
their face? The problem is more exposure to the sun's
ultraviolet A rays on the left side of the face through the
driver's side window of cars (in the U.S., where we drive on the
right side of the road). A new study found that windshields
offer good protection against UV-A, the rays associated with as
many as 90 percent of skin cancers as well as an elevated risk
of cataracts. But driver's side windows - when they're rolled up
- don't always offer the same UV-A protection. California
ophthalmologist Brian Boxer Wachler compared UV-A protection
from the front windshields and driver's side windows in 29
automobiles produced from 1990 to 2014 by 15 different
manufacturers. He reported that the windshields blocked an
average of 96 percent of UV-A rays, but the driver's side
windows blocked only 71 percent. Some glass did a better job
than others, and 14 percent of the cars afforded equal
protection from UV-A rays from the front windshield and the
driver's side window. UV-B rays are blocked by glass.
"My take? This study points up a sun exposure problem most
people may not consider. UV-A rays are regarded as more damaging
than UV-B because they penetrate the skin more deeply and are
associated with the development of skin cancer. Unfortunately,
most sunscreens available in the U.S. screen out only UV-B rays.
You can get UV-A protection by using a mechanical sunblock such
as zinc oxide, the opaque white stuff lifeguards spread on their
noses, but few people would be willing to coat their bodies with
that. However, some manufacturers now offer zinc oxide with
microfine particles in sunscreens that impart less white tint.
To protect your eyes wear sunglasses that block UV-A and UV-B.
If you live in a sunny location, you might also consider getting
tints for car windows that block UV-A."
If you are looking to get permanent
makeup done, there are two places that show up the most ... and
Elaine's Artistic Touch. I've been to both! [The first] was
cheaper so I went to her... I had an awful experience, traumatic
since I'm a pretty girl... she didn't really have any regard to
my comfort or what she was doing. I wasn't happy with the work
and suffered for years until I got my corrective work done at
Elaine's Artistic Touch.
Everything about Elaine's was
amazing... she is a true Earth Angel Among Us. She is so caring
and is a perfectionist at what she does. She has an artistic
skill and you will be so pleased. If you are going to get
permanent makeup done, don't go anywhere else but to Elaine's
Artistic Touch! It's worth every penny!
"Artistic Touch... Definitely!
When I decided to have my eyebrows, eyeliner and lips tattooed
with permanent makeup, I took the decision really seriously. I
did a lot of research, and wanted someone who took this decision
as seriously as I did.
From the moment I met Elaine, I trusted her, and was super
impressed by the professionalism, clinical setting, and
commitment to service and detail that I've only seen here.
With people offering discount tattoos, and permanent makeup done
in their living room, I did NOT want that. So I was really
pleased when I met Elaine. Professional, clean, organized, and
an artist in every way. I could not be happier with my decision!
For permanent makeup - Elaine's Artistic Touch is the ONLY place
to consider in my opinion!"
"Love my permanent make-up!"

with people as a Make Up Artist in Seattle I have learned what

Her work is truly artistic which you understand the minute you
step into her business and her warm welcome puts one at ease

for a most excellent day.

changed my life. You made me feel at
ease the moment I saw you and from that
moment I knew I was in great hands. I

and gifted you are at your craft. As a
person living with alopecia for 29 years
I have never felt as beautiful as I did
when you finished my eyebrows.

for that I will forever be grateful. You
are one in a million. Thank you."
Elaine, Thank you so much for the beautiful work you did
on me. I have wanted to get my lips and eyebrows done
for such a long time, but I was so afraid of having
something permanent done to my face. Yet after seeing
your work online, and communicating with you via email,
I knew I had to fly out to Tucson for an appointment. As
a trauma surgeon, my schedule can be extremely busy. I
often don’t have time to apply makeup, and with my fair
complexion my face just disappears. Now I don’t have to
worry about wearing makeup at all, and I still feel
presentable. You have made me look and feel so
beautiful! You also made me feel so comfortable and
relaxed during the procedure. I can’t thank you enough."
Trauma and Acute Care Surgery
I'm still loving my lips, and finally wrote this
testimonial. I deeply appreciate you and your work and
would love to have you post this on your site.
I am writing to tell my story as a testament to Elaine’s
miraculous work. At the end of May, I was thinking about
my two vacations that I take every summer, one to Santa
Fe to paint and the other to Wisconsin to see my four
grandchildren. I was at the end of my rope because of
the terrible yellow-lined lips I’d had for 1 solid year.
I did not want to face my grandchildren with
yellow-orange lined lips, which result from another
artist trying to fix the black liner (from yet another
artist), and then she couldn’t get rid of the yellow.
Even worse, the artist who tried to remove the black
also completely changed the shape of my lips by removing
my Cupid’s bow and making my mouth wider. This shape
didn’t fit my face, and the yellow orange liner was
outside my natural lips! I felt like a clown and didn’t
want to take my vacations looking clownish. I was so sad
and didn’t know what to do, so I said a prayer and
searched the Internet for corrective cosmetic tattooing.
My search results provided many options, but I was drawn
to Elaine’s site because it simply felt right. I called
for an appointment, but the next opening was after my
second vacation; nevertheless, I scheduled an
appointment but asked to be put on the list in case
someone cancelled. Because I have a problem, with cold
sores Elaine called me to find out what kind of
medication my doctor prescribed, and she suggested that
one that turned out to be far more effective than what I
was taking. In addition, she suggested that I take the
antibiotics that I must take before dental appointments.
I went to my doctor (an appointment that was already
scheduled) and had both prescriptions filled, and it was
a good thing because three days passed and someone
Elaine was so caring and delightful as she worked on the
corrective process; she made me feel so cared for. The
process was the least painful I’ve experienced, and that
was such a pleasant surprise. The biggest surprise,
though, was that Elaine had worked a miracle--my lips
were 95% better after the first appointment. I could
barely see the orange, AND she gave me back the Cupid’s
bow that is indicative of all the women in my family
(cousins included). What a gift! My lips were beautiful,
and after the second appointment, my lips are perfect.
In fact, I think they look better than when I was young!
Thank you, Elaine for all the care you’ve given and that
care come in many forms. First, you are so kind and
really want your “girls” to look good and feel good.
Next, you were absolutely caring about my health by
making sure that I took medication that prevented cold
sores, but most importantly, you required me to take the
antibiotics. I know that dental work without this
medication could result in my death, but I didn’t
realize there was a risk when having permanent makeup
done on lips. You were correct, and no other tattoo
artist had made this association. Thank you for caring
for my health and well-being. Finally, my lips are
lovely, both shape and color. You are indeed a Master
Artist and an Angel, and I feel so blessed! Thank you.
Thank you. Thank you."
Artistic Touch should be named “Artistic and Angelic
Touch!” Elaine is the ultimate professional who is
skilled AND compassionate. She takes her work very
seriously, shown by her sincere sense of responsibility
to her clients. I am so glad a friend recommended
Elaine! I love not having to put on eyeliner,
which smeared within an hour or so anyway. The procedure
is painless and the follow-up is thorough. Thank you,

incredible experience of your work and talents being shared with
me. You're such a kind and adorable woman, I'm blessed to have
spent time with you. My lips have never looked so good and
I am so grateful to you! What an awesome gift and talent you

you provided me with some beautiful permanent eyeliner
before I deployed to Afghanistan. Just wanted to pass on
a thank you and a picture of some of the activities I'm
up to over here. (We confiscated some weapons from the
bad guys!) It's nice to wake up on the spot for an a
bomb call and already have my makeup on! Ha ha, not that
there's anyone to impress but makes me feel a little
artistic talents are just amazing. I knew sitting in her
chair that her “spirit” was infectious. I was so at ease
knowing that my Lip procedure was going to work out
perfectly. See, I was in an accident many years ago and
have had 32 facial reconstructive surgeries. I never
thought in a million years that my lips would ever look
somewhat normal again. After the six weeks post
procedure, I LOVE my lips. The Post Procedural Care
Instructions was spot on describing how the healing
process would evolve. I've experienced everything that
has been documented. Elaine has changed my view on
looking at my lips after all these years!!! My
self-esteem has been restored. I feel I have kissable
lips. YOU'RE THE BEST!!!"

they will go away!!"
almost 2 yrs since I left Tucson for Houston and I just
wanted you to know that I think of you EVERY TIME I look
in the mirror! So many people here have complimented me
on your work and I am still loving it!!! Hope you

Elaine! Just touching base with you to say...WOW!
The 'girls' look complete now! I did not think that
trompe l'oeil of my reconstructed breasts would really
make any difference at all...Boy was I wrong!
Instead of reconstructed breasts made from transplanted
abdominal 'excess' that I did not care who saw, they now
feel 'completed' and 'normal'. I have regained some of
the modesty previously lost to multiple surgeries and
all the necessary 'clinical' review & inspection that
goes along with that.
Thank you for your kindness and your INCREDIBLE artistic
talent. I am so thankful that Dr. Larson brought us
together. You are a genuine Tucson Treasure that we are
so blessed to have in our midst!"
highly recommended to me by a good friend and I am so
very grateful that she did. Elaine has such a great
warmth and very loving, caring spirit that seems to give
her a kind of glow. She did a beautiful job when I had
my lips done and I was so impressed with her artistry
that I next had the eyeliner done. I had previously gone
to another artist for the eyeliner, but was not happy
with the harshness of the look. Elaine was able to
soften the look and I am now thrilled with the results.
I will continue to recommend her incredible work to my
bitterness of poor workmanship lingers long after the
cheap price is forgotten."
Elaine! - I have been meaning to let you know how
tremendously satisfied I have been with your work on my
eyes. I continue to be amazed to see the gentle
definition and the subtle and EFFECTIVE age reduction it
has provided to my appearance. Then, and this is just
the kind of odd thing you observe when you have been
getting crushed by life in a variety of ways, after
spending more than a few nights in a hospital, sleeping
in chairs, beside a loved one, I get home and think "Heh.
I must have slept well because I don't look bad." I
slept horribly! But, my eyes looked kind of great, so I
was able to kid myself that it cannot be that bad. A
secondary, positive effect of your beautiful work!
"Truly, thank you so much. I reap the benefit of your
work every time I look in the mirror and do not hate my
visage for having little, piggy eyes. They are now
lovely, slightly almond shaped and defined in a refined,
ladylike way. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Who knew
looking good when times are tough was such a helpful
bounce? My love to you for your dedication and kindness
as you go about your work, and my gratitude to you for
making me look so very much better."
"Elaine - I
look beautiful! Your artistic talent is amazing. I am so
grateful for the extra effort you make to accommodate my
schedule and for the beautiful work you do. I was so
concerned about getting permanent makeup and you have
done such a lovely job! It is so much easier to get up
and get going in the morning without as much worry over
my make up, it starts out looking nice!"

to say Hello, and to let you know that my eyebrows are
still very awesome. I am so thankful that I have met you
and been able to share some precious moments in this
life with you Elaine. You are one of the most, very most
beautiful women I have had the honor to have met. I
appreciate all what you have done for me and the fact
that I can look at myself and appreciate and accept my
own unique beautifulness. Thank you again for being a
part of my journey to empowerment. "
much love and joy,
"If I were
an artist with unlimited time each morning, perhaps I
could approximate the beautiful work Elaine did on my
eyes and brows. But, alas, for most of us that’s not the
Permanent makeup was not even on my radar until I saw
the results of Elaine’s handiwork on others. I decided I
deserved it, too!
Entering Elaine’s workplace is like visiting a medical
day spa – soothing and professional at the same time.
And her caring, confident manner serve to dispel any
fear or anxiety one might have.
Elaine restored to my face its definition, clarity and
color, which had started to fade. And when I ran into
people afterwards, everyone exclaimed how great I looked
– but no one seemed to figure out the particulars. I
think that made it even more fun!"
Elaine, You have an incredible artistic ability that
definitely reflects in your work. You have exceeded my
expectations. You are a true professional. Thank you for
explaining everything and answering my questions so
patiently. Your facility has a very comfortable
atmosphere and is very clean which made me feel safe. I
couldn't have asked for a more professional yet warm
setting, which was followed by first-class treatment.
Your concern for my comfort was very sincere.
With the use of anesthetic cream it was less painful
than plucking my eyebrows. Your policy to follow through
after my permanent eyeliner procedure, checking to see
if it may need a touch-up shows your commitment to
excellence. I'm beyond delighted with the results of my
permanent eyeliner. It saves me time everyday. I truly
love my permanent eyeliner and look forward to my next
permanent makeup procedure. I can't thank you enough."
Pichet is a superb professional and unsurpassed in her
work, to which she brings an exceptional artistic flair.
Because Elaine loves her work, it's fun to go to the
office for the painless treatments and because she is so
conservative, Elaine never "overdoes" the makeup."
you are in the right place as soon as you sit in
I had previously had permanent makeup applied to my
eyebrows. The experience was very unpleasant and the
results were less than desired. But after only a few
minutes of listening to Elaine, I was at ease and knew
the results would be everything I had hoped for this
second time. And as I expected the results were
fabulous! I absolutely LOVE my eyebrows!
More importantly, Elaine has an authentic way in helping
you recognize your own beauty. I have sat in many chairs
and been given essentially the same message. But, her
words still resonate with me and for the first time I
feel motivated to take my skin care to the next level.
Elaine's commitment and beautiful spirit are what keep
me coming back. She pours herself into what is obviously
her passion and reminds me of a physician that practices
holistic medicine. Mind, body, and spirit are
interconnected and she touches them all. She is truly a
gift to this profession and all the women who have the
opportunity to experience her work."

utilized her wonderful talent when she performed amazing
corrective work to my eyebrows. About five years ago I
had my eyebrows tattooed at a local salon here in
Tucson, Arizona. The work was horrible and the color was
too dark for my skin and hair. The tattooed eyebrows did
not match my existing eyebrows. I had two sets of
eyebrows. I had to get my real eyebrows waxed frequently
to get rid of the hair that did not match the permanent
eyebrows. Over time the ink started to turn dark grey
and I was embarrassed to go out in public. I called the
salon who previously performed the procedure but, they
were unable to help me. One day I was browsing through a
local newspaper and I found Elaine's ad. I was so
excited I immediately looked up her website and I was
very impressed with her work I made an appointment that
same day. Elaine is a very kind and caring individual.
Elaine has given me back the confidence that I had
previously lacked due to my horrible experience with the
previous salon and my once ugly eyebrows. I highly
recommend Elaine to anyone who is needing corrective
work or to anyone who is interested in any permanent
make up. Her photo gallery speaks for itself. Thank You

Elaine: What a pleasure to meet you yesterday. It
is always nice to talk to a fellow Canadian. Here is a
short version of my story and how I came to you.
My name is Belinda I am a patient at the Arizona Cancer
Center. I have been a patient since 1999 when I was
diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma a type that has no
cure. I started treatment in 2000. I remember the day I
lost my hair playing cards with a friend. I ran my
finger through my hair and her face dropped. She said,
“Don’t do that again, look at your hand” my hand was
full of hair. I remember a tear rolling down my face.
Even though I lived a couple doors away, I called home
and said that I was spending the night. I pulled out as
much as I could and shaved the rest. I am not a vain
person so I just wore hats. That was the first of many
times loosing my hair. Loosing my hair was not as bad as
loosing my eyelashes and eyebrows. That is when you feel
totally exposed, people stare more, whisper when they
think you can’t hear them. I remember one time I was in
a restaurant with my ex husband. It was hot and I wiped
my face. The shock on my ex husbands face was priceless.
I remember saying, “I wiped off my eyebrow again” and he
just nodded, off I went to draw my eyebrow back on. I
have done too many types of Chemo to name, including a
stem cell transplant. I would cry on the days I could
not cover up the look of my illness because of fatigue.
With healthcare cost I could not have ever afforded
myself the luxury of permanent make-up.
Kathy Parson a nurse at ACC had told me about Elaine and
the service she gives to some of the patients doing
treatment. It was a few years ago but I could not drive
back to Tucson after my treatments even one more time.
They told me I was in remission in 2006, but in December
of 2008 I was told that my cancer came back. My
son-in-law found out in December as well that his father
had cancer so I did not tell my children about my
cancer. His father died June 5th, 2009. It was very hard
to tell my daughters in late June, they had suffered for
so long with me being sick. When I went to my chemo I
saw a nurse that has taken such wonderful care of me in
the past and had told me about Elaine years ago. I told
her the only thing I wished I had done was to get
permanent make-up done. She told me she would come and
visit me later while I was doing a chemo treatment.
When she came into the room she had a flyer from Elaine.
She told me to give her a call which I did the next day.
I told her who I was she was so kind and caring. She
asked me what I wanted done and she said that she would
do my eyeliner in the next couple of weeks after I
finished the last round of chemo. I was so excited to
drive to Tucson this time. I was a little nervous but
trusted the hospital with my life so they would not
steer me wrong. I walked into Elaine’s spa (it was as
comforting as one) and was greeted with a hug from
Elaine without hesitation. We talked for a few minutes
and after taking my off the eyeliner that I applied, we
went into a wonderful, clean room. I laid back in the
chair and Elaine explained every step and detail. I felt
as though we were old friends, we even got to share
stories of our birth places in Canada.
By the time we finished talking she was done. I was
elated by the image in the mirror. I had no mascara on
but it looked as though I did. I could not stop looking
at my eyes on the way back home to Phoenix. I cannot
tell you how grateful I am to Elaine and the gift she
has given me. It was not just the permanent eyeliner, it
was the gift when I lose my hair in the future, the hair
will grow back but the face will not be the face of a
woman with cancer, just the everyday face I have become
attached to. Thanks and someday I will come and get my
I will see you in September, until then stay well."
difference of having Elaine do my eyebrows and eyeliner
has been amazing. No longer do I feel washed out
when I don't have make-up on.
flying from Denver to have Elaine take care of my face.
I love it!"
skill, and care, these three qualities exactly capture
Elaine Picket at Artistic Touch Inc. Only a real artist
could see that my top lip needed to be slightly more
full and my eyebrows a little less so, and that is
exactly what Elaine did for me. Elaine drew the finest
lines at the base of my eyelashes, something I could
never do myself with sharpest pencil, and now it is
permanent. Empathy and concern are her watchwords. My
permanent make up was painless, and she called me many
times after my appointment to see how I was doing. My
friends have been saying I look beautiful, but they
can’t identify just why. I wish I had known her and
asked her to do her magic on me twenty years ago."
the entertainment industry, the pressures of looking
your best in a concert hall, on screen or on an early
morning TV show can be daunting. When I saw how subtle
and beautiful Elaine Pichet’s work was on a friend of
mine, I thought here is an artist I can trust with my
face. From the moment I met Elaine, I immediately felt
put at ease and under the care of an experienced,
sensitive and lovely person. One of my problems was that
I had lost a good deal of my eyebrows in an “acting
accident” when I was 18- nobody told me they when you
pluck your eyebrows for a character, they might never
grow back. So that was my first procedure. Elaine knew
exactly what to do to give them back a natural and
lovely shape. I got lots of compliments from people when
I got back to NY saying how particularly good I looked
but not knowing why. Then, I decided to have eyeliner
done on my next visit because I spend way too much time
trying to make the perfect delicate line below and above
my eyes. Elaine gave me subtle and lovely eyeliner that
completely liberates me- I feel like my eyes are ready
to greet the world the moment I wake up. I am very
grateful to have someone I can rely on to help me look
my best. And now Elaine Pichet is one more reason I love
visiting Tucson. "

year ago, Elaine Pichet's name came up while I was
getting a nail manicure. I asked who she was and was
told she did permanent makeup. Now I only had the
spelling of the first name, and they gave me what they
thought was her last name. I got home and started on a
Googling venture. I found her name and called to set up
for a consultation. I had always wanted to have
permanent makeup and I was told she was the best.
When I met Elaine, I remember asking "O.K. what makeup
are you wearing?" She smiled back at me and said,
"Nothing." Her eyes and lips were beautiful. I was
totally taken back by her beauty and kindness. So
the process and friendship began. When I came in for my
procedure, I was a bit nervous and excited all at the
same time. She made me feel so wonderful and all my
anxious feeling went away. She took care of making my
eyes, liner (top and bottom), and brows look absolutely
beautiful. My brows were very thin and she filled them
all in. A couple weeks later I went back to have
my lips totally done. I really had never had a top
lip (so to speak, very thin), but Elaine gave that to
me. She was able to give me the appearance of having a
lip like others have. I could hardly believe when
it was all over and I had such perfect beautiful lips.
Even with the swelling (which was gone in a couple of
days). She has given me a new lease on life. It is
so wonderful to wake up in the morning and know that the
majority of my makeup is already on. I really like
being a walking billboard for her. I tell everyone
I meet about Elaine, especially when they ask how do you
keep your liner looking so nice and why doesn't your lip
color ever go away. Elaine thank you so much for
changing my life for the better. You are not only a
wonderful artist, but a wonderful person. I want
to thank you, Elaine. for a talent beyond belief… You
are awesome, and you have changed my life."
absolutely delighted with my new lip color. With aging,
my natural lip color was gone. Without lipstick, I truly
looked "faded out". I now have beautiful natural-looking
lips. Elaine is an expert in choosing the right shade of
lip color for my skin tone. I love not having to apply
lipstick, although I do use a lip balm with sunscreen
daily. Thank you, Elaine. "
just love my eyes. Numerous comments on how folks
cannot believe they are enhanced. I brought my mom
over for eyebrows, which are just PERFECT for her face,
age, and color. I have others lined up to come
over for the same enhancements, based on the wonderful
outcomes! Thanks for all you do!! "
"I had the pleasure of meeting Elaine several years ago.
I was teaching overseas and was in Tucson visiting my
family. Elaine had done my mother's eyebrows and they
were absolutely beautiful so I decided to get my eyes,
eyebrows, and lips done. Elaine is fabulous! She guided
me with picking colors that would best compliment my
coloring and I was more than 100% satisfied with the end
results. I just went back and had a complete touch up on
lips, eyes, and brows. This procedure took about three
hours. At first I was a bit anxious, however, Elaine is
so gentle, and after a few minutes I was totally
relaxed. What Elaine does is so personal for us women,
and I feel so blessed to have found her. I was swimming
with my three year old grandson, and I was holding him
in my arms while he floated on his back, he was so
relaxed as he knew grandma had him. I than thought of
Elaine, and how I felt when she was doing my make-up. I
felt so safe, and confident. The environment she creates
is so safe. I just want to say Thank you Elaine, you
truly are one in a million. "
was 2000. I noticed that a bald spot was beginning to
form on the back of my head. Within a couple of weeks,
more hair was falling out, until a short time later I
had lost all of it. The diagnosis was alopecia, a
disease of the immune system that causes some or all of
your hair to fall out all over your body. That was eight
This upset my world in a major way. You don’t realize
how much your hair defines you until it’s no longer
there. I experimented with a variety of wigs until I
found a style and color that suited me well. It was with
the help of my girlfriends that we discovered the best
type, and several trips to Phoenix to get it right.
One day the four of us were celebrating something –
maybe it was just enjoying our retirement and each
other; who knows as we are always celebrating. We took a
picture and I noticed how different I looked without
eyebrows. It was a real eye opener. I concluded that my
next task was to get some eyebrows. I tried drawing them
on – my husband’s response to that was “what have you
done to yourself?”. That was no good. I then tried some
fake ones but after 20 minutes one of them fell off.
They looked better in the box than on me! I was
encouraged by both husband and girlfriends to come up
with something better. Somewhere along the way I heard
about tattooing of eyebrows.
I mentioned to my girlfriends that I was considering
this and in their usual manner, before I could change my
mind, they had identified a resource and I scheduled an
appointment. Together we descended upon Elaine Pichet’s
Artistic Touch, Inc. She graciously allowed all four of
us to participate in this experience – me in the chair
and the rest peering in as Elaine worked. Her kind,
gentle manner, and her artistic talent made this a very
pleasant experience for me. Her brushstroke technique
with the needle gave me beautiful eyebrows. Later I
opted to have the eyeliner on both upper and lower lids.
another picture taken and this time I looked great,
according to my girlfriends. Special thanks to Elaine
for making this happen and for helping my friends and I
turn this into a special event!"
Friends sticking together!
I love my
eyebrows and eyeliner."
"I just want
to say, that my experience from the time I walked into
your office to the time I left, has been the most
exhilarating experience. You as a professional not only
show a great deal of enthusiasm and preciseness in your
work, but you also show a genuine concern for your
patients as well. This I commend you highly for. Seldom
do we find in our professional business world today
people like yourself. And last but not least, let me
thank you for the great job you did with my procedure.
You are a True Artist. Thank you so much."
"I have been going to Elaine for 5 1/2 years. I was
scared to death at first but I had 3 good friends who
had gone to Elaine for permanent make-up and they looked
fabulous and so natural. Being the type that wears
make-up to get the mail I thought this would be a dream
come true. Elaine’s warm and caring personality set me
at ease immediately. I started with my eye liners (top
and bottom) then the lips and finally the eyebrows.
Elaine takes the pain out of it because she is so gentle
and explains every procedure she is doing.
I love to go back for touch-ups because Elaine always
fusses and makes me feel so good. And she always has
wonderful new skin enhancers—her office is warm and
inviting with all her artwork—she is a true artist and I
love to refer her because she knows how to treat each
"I walked in
her office, she greeted me with a warm caring smile. AT
that moment I knew she (Elaine) cared. Elaine carefully
took the time to "LOOK" at me and saw what had long been
missing for some years now, COLOR and she could restore
it! Her talent is remarkable. Her creative ability to
perform the "art" work is just revitalizing. A simple
procedure that took no time. The result: Beautiful!
Elaine then took me step by step in what she was doing
and the whys. Not only did she make me very comfortable
with doing my permanent make up on my brows and eye
liner, she was very informative as well. Soft natural
color to restore my look. Now I wake up in the morning
and look and the mirror and love what I see. I do not
have to bother with make up on my eyes everyday. Her
work reflects her beautiful natural talent. Simplicity
equals beauty and color. Thank you Elaine for adding
color back into my life."
Susan Sarasota, Florida
"I had my eyeliner and eyebrows tattooed at age 77. I
look really good when I get up in the morning; just need
some lipstick. The only maintenance needed now is a
regular brow and lash tints. Elaine was extremely aware
of my state of mind during the procedure. The soft music
in the background really relaxed me. I would not
hesitate to recommend Elaine for those procedures.
performed my eyeliner permanent make-up and it is great!
I love it and I get many compliments. She is very
professional and it didn't hurt at all. I would
recommend it without hesitation."

was treated elsewhere and the results were not what I
hoped for. The initial procedure was painful and my
eyebrows were too dark and were not shaped correctly for
my face. Elaine knew right away how to make my face look
softer and more natural. The change is subtle but enough
for people to notice and comment on my improved
appearance. Thank you, Elaine!"
"Thanks to Elaine's talent, I feel like a priceless work
of art. I feel polished and professional first thing in
the morning, and after a long days work. I have received
countless compliments on how beautiful my brows look,
and questions about why I look so much younger. The best
compliment came from my husband who loves the results.
Thank you for sharing your talent Elaine. "
Benson Hall, RN
"I went to Elaine at the recommendation of a friend of
mine after years of suffering with no eyebrows. In
my younger years (teens and twenties), I tweezed my very
thick eyebrows into very thin narrow lines, which was
the style at the time, and they never grew back.
As I have grown older (forties), what little remaining
eyebrow hair I had has begun to fall out (thinning
eyebrows appear to be a genetic defect in the female
side of my family!). My vision is very poor and I
must leave my glasses on in order to draw my eyebrows on
with a pencil, which makes this extremely difficult to
do and pencil washes off every time I get my face wet.
Therefore, I had gotten into the habit only "putting on"
eyebrows very rarely for special occasions. For
the last five to ten years I have felt much older than
my age (which is currently 50) because of my lack of
brows. I visited Elaine on my friend's
recommendation for a consultation, but was extremely
leery about the procedure as I am a perfectionist and
was afraid that my idea of what I wanted and her idea of
what I needed would not be the same and I would be stuck
with something I was very unhappy with for the rest of
my life. Although still scared, I built up the
courage to let her do my brows and I have to say that I
am thrilled to death with the results. I have
gotten so many complements on how young I look.
People want to know if I got a face lift, a new hair
style, hit the lottery, etc., but nobody even realizes
that my eyebrows are tattooed on because they are so
real looking ad the color matches my hair perfectly.
Elaine took my facial features into consideration when
she applied the brows and they look even more natural
than my real brows did. Elaine includes a
follow-up visit in her price, but she did such a good
job the first time that there was virtually nothing to
touch-up on the return visit. I highly recommend
Elaine for any of your permanent cosmetic work. My
eyebrows were a birthday gift from my husband, who was
tired of hearing me complain about how old and ugly I
looked. Now he's saving up for next year so I can
get my eye-liner done."
can never thank you enough."
A. Hazel, Ph.D., MT (ASCP)
"I am writing this note to express my gratitude for the
interest you have shown me. Your expertise and
professionalism toward correcting a botched up job on my
eyebrows has been the greatest thing that I had hoped
for. I feel very fortunate that I, through another
friend of mine, found you.
I, like so
many others, went to a woman in Hereford, AZ, who did
the work in her home. She obviously wasn't
qualified and certainly wasn't under the best sterile
conditions either. I called the Health Department
and the Cosmetology Board - there is no one out there to
regulate that type of activity. Needless to say, I
was just lucky to have been directed to Artistic Touch.
Thank you so
much Elaine. I am so pleased with what you have
done for me and what you will do in the future."
"I have been
so pleased with the outcome of my eyeliner. I had never
really liked the way eyeliner looked on me and was very
nervous about how it would turn out to have something so
permanent. I had seen others who had had their liner
done at tattoo shops and it really was just a line drawn
around the eyes. But although nervous, I had developed a
trust in Elaine and her talent. She took a moment to
look at the shape of my eyes and told me that if she
followed the line of my lashes all the way from corner
to corner my eyes would look droopy at the outside
corner. THAT was it! That was why my eyeliner always
looked a little off to me!! To look straight on at me
you can't tell it but my eyes slightly slope downward.
Elaine stopped about 1/8 of an inch from the outside
corner and I couldn't be more pleased with how it looks.
My eyes look alert and open and look even more rich in
color than before. I have had so many
compliments....even without a bit of "make-up". My
mother liked the look so much she got her eyes done for
her 60th birthday."

incredible artistic ability is an added bonus for your
permanent make up procedure. She makes it look so
natural, people think you were just born with perfect
eyes and lips! The products she uses are of such premium
quality, I didn't need a touch up for 3 years.
This was the best value for the money spent and the
wisest choice I've made for enhancing my self-esteem.
Tucson is so fortunate to have someone of her talent
doing permanent make-up locally."
thrilled with the results of my new eyebrows and
eyeliner. No matter how many products I purchased in the
past, I always managed to look unfinished, uneven, and
washed out. As I aged, the problem got worse.
With Elaine's artistry, I now look younger and more
attractive. My eyes, always one of my good features,
have finally come into their own! Elaine combines
an artist's eye with superb technical skills."
"I wanted to
take the opportunity to thank you for the success of the
results of your very talented hands, your expert advice
on laser treatments for my face, and a greatly improved
complexion. I have been told that my eyebrows are
"elegant", something I've wished for for many years. As
a result of the laser treatments and Intradermal
Treatments, my complexion is literally glowing.
Your encouragement to pursue a course that would make me
feel better about myself was the motivation I needed. "
Duerksen: I would like to thank you for your
referral to Elaine Pichet's Artistic Touch, Inc. Elaine
did camouflage work on my facial scar (right cheek).
Dr Duerksen, when I came into your office to have two
more small moles removed on my left cheek you noticed
how my old facial scar turned very white in color.
Elaine was able to cover the white scarring with a
PERFECT SKIN TONE MATCH! After seeing Elaine's talent I
decided to have permanent makeup on my eyebrows. What a
dramatic difference it has made in my appearance, yet it
looks SO NATURAL.
Elaine is a wonderful lady with a warm personality. I
know she loves what she does because it shows in her
professional work, and her caring personality.
Thank you for referring me to Elaine."
Pichet is able to visualize placement and color of
permanent makeup for each individual to enhance their
natural beauty. She is a true artist! Elaine was able to
create a slight arch, subtle thickness and symmetry in
my eyebrows giving me a youthful look. She also restored
the color and fullness of my lips making them vibrant
and sexy. The eyeliner she tattooed took the slight
cross-eyed look away from my eyes. I love my new look!
All my friends have commented on how great I look. The
permanent makeup is so natural that not one of them knew
I had it applied. I highly recommend Elaine to anyone
who wishes to look and feel better about themselves."
"I have seen
Elaine several times over the past four years for
various permanent makeup procedures, and each time I
have been very pleased with the results! In addition to
being passionate and a perfectionist about the work she
does, Elaine is a truly caring person, and I am very
happy to know her. Without reservation, I strongly
recommend her permanent makeup artistry to anyone who is
interested in these procedures."
"Thirteen years ago I had laser done on my bottom lip
due to actinic keratosis. My lip tightened with scar
tissue making it difficult to brush my teeth or open my
mouth wide enough at the dentist. I also lost the bottom
line around my lower lip. My dermatologist told me about
Elaine Pichet's work. She tattooed my lip, breaking up
the scar tissue and lining them. My lips look beautiful,
are perfectly outlined and don't feel tight for the
first time in years."
