As a young girl my first real interest was art. My love of all things art and beauty continued into high school and college where I received my degree in Fine Arts.
Today and with many licenses and certifications under my belt I am a Permanent Costmetic Artist. Additionally, I am also a Licensed Esthetician and Professional Makeup Artist.
I am the owner and operator of BeautyKult where we specialize in 3D Areola Tattooing along with Permanent Eyeliner, Scar Camouflage, Scalp Micropigmentation and Microblading.
What pushed me to be so passionate about Areolas and Breasts… My best friend is a two-time breast cancer survivor. Both times I stood by her side for all the ups and downs and witnessed her unbreakable strength as she endured her fight with great fortitude. After all the surgeries and treatment she was left with bare breast mounds and scars. I wanted to help her feel like herself again. The look on her face when she saw her new “boobs” for the first time made it all worth it for me.
My goal is to help as many women as possible feel that same way. I know how difficult this journey has been for you and I would welcome the opportunity to assist you in your final step of the reconstruction process. I want you to feel whole and complete and have your very own mile-wide smile!

With over 25 years practicing aesthetics in medical offices, I now specialize in micro pigmentation for brows, scars and breast to create a natural outcome without a “tattoo” look. For brows, I offer 3 techniques which will be discussed during your visit; we will then determine which method is best for you. As with all tattoos, these procedures will require touch ups over the years to maintain results, so it’s important to consider this before having a procedure, especially on the face.

Hello, we are Perky. The new art of healing for breast cancer survivors. We are a team of two registered nurses specializing in medical micropigmentation including nipple restorative tattooing, eyebrow micropigmentation and scar/radiation marker camouflage.
In our 10+ years working with the breast cancer community we noticed first-hand the many side effects our patients dealt with after “surviving” the disease. We realized that thriving after breast cancer isn’t easy.
Crystal and Courtney both graduated nursing school together in 2012 from UT Health Science Center of San Antonio. Together they have performed hundreds of nipple restorative tattoos. At Perky the focus is the woman behind the tumor. Perky was created to bring positivity to this difficult journey, in hopes of helping women thrive in their next chapter of life.
