Sandra's Testimonials


Hello, I have never written a testimonial for any product I have purchased or service I have had done, but after having cosmetic tattoos done (eyebrows, eye liner, and lip liner) by Sandra of Sandra's Ink, I felt compelled to just that. Sandra also introduced me to skin needling, which completely rejuvenated my skin and knocked years off of my appearance. Now I get compliments all of the time. Looking and feeling so good about ones appearance makes us all walk a little taller. I encourage anyone that would like to make positive, beautiful change in their lives to make an appointment with one of the many talented artist that are there. Thank you Sandra.

Two years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Sandra for the first time.  I was interested in permanent make-up and at the initial appointment, Sandra explained the procedure in detail and asked if I had any questions.  After each treatment, she would ask if I was happy with the results and if I had any new questions. There were several weeks healing time in between appointments.  The final look was much more than I had hoped for!


My experience with Sandra was so positive, that when I considered having laser hair removal, I had no hesitation in booking an appointment with Maria.  Once again, everything was discussed in detail in a very professional manner.  During the treatments, Maria was always concerned with my comfort level.  She would also talk about the progress following each session. As before,  the final result was incredible.


The work ethic at Sandra's Ink is based on making the client happy.  What a wonderful concept!


Sandra, you have made such a difference in my life!


Dearest Sandra,

Thank you for all the time you spend on me and I love you sooooo much for all your patience. Hugs & love.


Dear Sandra, You have such a "Bed Side" manner; soft, gentle touch and always soothing words. Thank you for sharing your talent! I love my new makeup.


Best thing I ever did was having Sandra do my eyebrows and liner!!  She is a miracle worker!!


As a fellow Sterling Award Winner for business excellence in Nanaimo, Sandra's Ink was my natural  choice for permanent makeup. A warm friendly greeting within a sumptuously serene environment, you feel trust and tranquility immediately upon arrival. Sandra's gentle nature masks a wealth of experience. She immediately feels like a friend. You are delighted with her work and go back because you love what she does. I spend my life working in front of a camera. I am grateful for so many compliments, I look and feel younger. Sandra's commitment to professionalism is surpassed by the physical magic she has created for me and thousands like me.


Sandra did my brows and liner in 2004. Last year (2009) was the first brow touch up and this year (2010) will be the first liner touch up. I am terrified of needles and never thought that I could do something like this. But......Sandra is so gentle that the experience was absolutely great. Must mention how hygienic Sandra is with the procedure and the feeling of safety that you have with her. I would highly recommend Sandra to anyone for a procedure well done.


Sandra's Ink gave me a new lease on life.  Never believing I would ever be a tattoo advocate, I can now say that having the permanent makeup process done certainly changed my opinion.  At sixty-five I can get up in the morning, look in the mirror and be OK with what I see.  My process included permanent eye-liner and a lip fill.  I'm so glad I took the step and called Sandra for a consultation. 


 My experience at Sandra’s Ink for permanent eye make-up can only be described as amazing.  The shop itself is tastefully decorated, very cleaned and inviting.  I was treated with courtesy and respect through out my consultation and service appointments.  Time was ten by Sandra to explain procedures and their aftercare.  I was comfortable during the procedure and must say that my results are exquisite.  Sandra is truly an artist!  I have and will continue to recommend others. 


"A few years ago I got tired of having no eyebrows and when I started asking around I was told by three different people to go see Sandra at Sandra's Ink.  So I did but I was scared because I just assumed it was going to hurt and tattooing parlors as seen on cop shows on television did cross my mind...well, I was in for a big surprise!


First of all, Sandra's place was tastefully decorated and so clean and so welcoming.  Her procedure room has an ambience of serenity with a little fountain and soft musi;  Sandra, herself, is so calm and so kind that I knew immediately that I was in safe and caring hands. 


Sandra took a lot of time to create me the perfect brows in pencil and she did not proceed until I was TOTALLY happy with the result.  Then she told me every little thing there was to know about the actual procedure of creating me some eyebrows.  She used a cool and soothing topical freezing and then told me that I was going to feel some pin- pricks.  I felt some wee bits of pressure but, in truth, it was absolutely nothing.  As Sandra works she takes her time and she regularly stops to inquire if you are alright and of course, I always was.  I always close my eyes and listen to the fountain and if she doesn't stop to ask me how I am doing, I could easily fall asleep.  Every time I have gone, I was totally relaxed and feeling no pain AT ALL.  


I also had some eyeliner done and again, there were some initial "pricks" but they were so slight that I don't even consider them worthy of mention.  The care and time Sandra took to make sure that my lids were topically anaesthetized was truly awesome.  Not for one moment did I have any concern, worry, or pain.  Sandra is amazing; I have recommended a number of friends to go to her and they all had the same easy experience.  Bless you, Sandra, for the care you take in every aspect of the procedure."


Sandra is a warm, competent professional; and her staff are friendly, and the studio is spotlessly clean and welcoming.  With each step of the tattooing 'procedure' Sandra explained in detail what to expect.  These were lost on me because the whole process was completely pain free and not at all threatening!  I won't go as far as saying, "it was fun to be tattooed", but, it would definitely be something I would consider again. I'm looking forward to my follow up appointment
