“It is important for any PMU artist trained by me to be the best. They need to be skilled in handling any type of clients walking in the door and be able to make choices based on fundamental training that empowers them to be the best, safest and confident PMU Artist.” – Dawn Hunter

Dawn Hunter comes from a long lineage of artists. Her grandmother being an accomplished artist in Hungary, she inherited a natural eye for design and color. Adding in her over 12 years of Master Skin care experience as Director of Esthetics at a Seattle Medspa this profession is the perfect fit. Dawn trained with many master artist and tattooists holding many certifications.
“I like to think of all the different techniques we use in PMU as our brushes to the canvas, only our canvas is skin and our brushes are tattoo machines. We are creating art on the face.”
Dawn attended OFarrell High school for the arts and had a scholarship to attend a prestigious art college but decided that she had a preference for other ares and wanted art to be her love not a job, until she discovered permanent cosmetics.
