In today’s episode, Jill sits down – pre-Covid times – with the restorative tattoo artist who’s about to become Los Angeles’ next big brow guru. It’s Shaughnessy Otsuji, co-founder of Studio Sashiko in Vancouver, who’s bringing her coveted “fluffy brows” to a new location in La-La Land next. Shaughnessy’s hyper-realistic approach to natural, microbladed brows has earned a celebrity clientele that includes Bachelorette stars Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jillian Harris – the pro even has her own Instagram filter!

But what really sets Shaughnessy’s work apart is her 3-D, fine art tattoo renderings that far surpass the mighty microblade. Camouflaging scars, disguising stretch marks, even restoring nipples for breast cancer survivors – the services Shaughnessy and her team offer are changing people’s lives. If you’ve ever dreamed of getting back to the brows you once had when you were twelve, tune in as she fills us in on the difference between microblading, micro-feathering, brow lacquer, brow lamination and who is the best candidate for each. And, you won’t wanna miss where this trailblazer is taking restorative tattooing next – it’s truly, where no microblader has gone before.
