Bella Face is pleased to offer the complementary service of permanent tattoo artistry to its suite of cosmetic expertise.
The famous Gordana Poljak (Dr Freckle and Mr Hide) is one of Sydney’s most sought-after celebrity make-up artists and is a guest artist at our clinic in Newcastle.
Gordana is well known for her talent in achieving beautiful, shapely eyebrows for her clients, using the latest techniques and products. With a background in film and television make-up, she extended and honed her cosmetic tattoo artistry over the past four years to incorporate both permanent and semi permanent tattoo methods.
Eyebrow feathering, brow tattooing, microblading or soft-tap (as it is often referred to) has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in recent years. This is, in part, thanks to models and influencers such as Kim Kardashian, Cara Delevigne and Gigi Hadid, whose beautiful, full and shapely brows are the envy of this generation.
A good tattoo artist will understand the facial structure, skin and have extensive experience with make-up designs. They should be comfortable using an array of suitable ink colours for long lasting, successful cosmetic tattoo results. One need only see Gordana’s celebrity client list (Zac Efron, Cate Blanchett, Reese Witherspoon for example) via her website, or her Before & After gallery to appreciate her talent.
Gordana spent several years researching and 4 years training in both the fundamentals and advanced methods of cosmetic tattooing in both Australia and the USA, and is a member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals.
Gordana has honed the ‘soft tap’ hand-held method, which gives a semi permanent, colour-rich natural effect. For a more permanent result, ‘Microblading’ is the method used, but it’s the two styles in combination that gives the most natural looking effect.
Permanent make-up for client convenience is one thing, but helping people look and feel their best is what drives Gordana. Whilst she is acknowledged for expert cosmetic tattooing for aesthetics, she also provides medical tattooing services for those who suffer from conditions such as alopecia and cancer. She has the ability to completely rebuild the appearance of eyebrows for chemotherapy patients who have lost their hair; whilst, for breast cancer sufferers (who have endured a mastectomy or breast reconstruction) Gordana can re-create a 3-dimensional nipple and areola and minimise the appearance of scars using a re-pigmentation technique.
