How would it affect you when told that you're horrible and no good tattoo artist? What's worst, this rude man tells you to keep ruining people's tattoos so he can make money off fixing your mess? Cowed down, you’d probably be.
But not this amazing woman. She had been told lies, but she refused to believe them. Instead, that fire within her was ignited that she did her best even more. One day she just proved that she's undisputed because she only believed in her truth.
Angela Torresiani apprenticed as a tattoo artist in 1997 in NYC and began working full time as a professional tattoo artist in 2001 in Tacoma, WA. She learned permanent makeup in 2003 and has since worked as a tattoo artist and PMU tech in Tacoma WA (2001-2006), Stuttgart, Germany (2006-2010), and NYC (1996-1998, 2003, 2010-present). Her years as a tattoo artist have helped her as a PMU tech in providing expertise in choosing the proper color and technique to obtain beautifully natural results in all skin types and textures. She is certified internationally and keeps up to date with master level training in the latest techniques. Her office is at Flawless Permanent Cosmetics and Spa in Staten Island, NY minutes from all bridges. She is currently the president of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals.
In this episode, Angela shares about what she needs to do in her business despite the circumstances. Her resourcefulness got her to practice her skill and become better at it. She believed in her truth, continued her journey, and became the best at what she does despite what others think otherwise. She took action. She went all-in, took her fears aside, and just focus on her marketing and what needs to be done to sustain her business. She looks at a rather bad day into something bright and cheerful. She knows how to pep-talk herself up--showing her best self to every client by putting on that perfect smile to carry her into a festive mood throughout. Best of all, she's got an action plan to make things happen big in her business.
