Emily is passionate about fusing classical artistry, the golden ratio of beauty and personal style preferences to customize the perfect tattoo for each client. She has been an artist since she was just a little girl and has always had strong aesthetic skills for design, makeup artistry and painting.

As a college student, Emily studied oil painting under Elizabeth Watson, a professional painter and classically trained portraitist. She also took classes from numerous professional artists while attending the University of Virginia where she focused on painting and mixed media light installation projects to highlight the beauty in everyday objects. Her exposure to these professional artists’ classical techniques and traditional body tattooing heavily influenced her cosmetic tattooing technique.

Emily received her Permanent Makeup certification from the Esthetic Institute. She received her Microblading training from Branko Babic’s  International PhiBrows Microblading Academy. She also holds certificates in Combination Brows from Brows by Linnie Academy, Classic Eyeliner from the Andrea Toth Academy and Hair Follicle Simulation from Synergy Academy. She is an active member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP) and a fully licensed cosmetic tattoo artist in Virginia.

In 2016, Emily founded Beauty + the Blade studio to elevate cosmetic tattooing above the typical salon experience with a plethora of services into a highly specialized niche tattoo studio hyper focused on crafting the highest quality brow tattoos. She has performed over 1,000 eyebrow procedures including work on congresswomen, news anchors, models, NFL cheerleaders and Miss Virginia USA. She is forever grateful for the trust from all her amazing clients who support her passion.
