However, sometimes we sabotage ourselves with low self-esteem or lack of confidence. My dream is to be able to help people recreate themselves, which will allow the very best version of their inner-self to be illuminated,” she says.
Debbie Labes went from being a bedroom artist, losing herself creating behind closed doors, to spearheading a boutique with two treatment rooms fully equipped with the best technology in the industry.

Labes has years of experience in all things aesthetic, and she has used her knowledge and skills to help women feel better about themselves. She has a unique ability to help women recreate themselves, which allows their true beauty to shine through.
“Stepping into the world of beauty was a whole new beginning for me. It’s a wonderful thing to make someone feel beautiful, even just because of ‘those little things like getting your makeup done, or, even a facial. It wasn’t until 1999 (when I worked with a woman in a well-known day spa) that I was introduced to cosmetic tattoos. I had my lips and eyeliner done with this form of semi-permanent makeup. It gave me a newfound confidence in the way I look. I immediately fell in love with every aspect of the craft.”
Debbie’s work is truly one-of-a-kind, and her clients are always amazed at the results. Not only does she create the illusion of realistic nipples, but she also uses her skills to camouflage scars and other imperfections.
