Beyond The Surface specializes in the niche art of permanent cosmetics and medical tattooing, giving back confidence by restoring what once was.


Jennifer Griffin

I was introduced to the world of micropigmentation and not only discovered my passion but a career where I’m able to apply my artistic abilities, and benefit from the satisfaction of helping others.  I attended the prestigious Academy of Cosmetic Arts and Sciences in Boca Raton, FL.  It was at ACAS that I received my training in medical tattooing, permanent cosmetics, and semi-permanent eyelash extensions.  I have returned to the academy for advanced continuing education courses in simulated hairstrokes and 3D tattooing for areola restoration.  I am also certified in blood borne pathogens, which focuses on safety and sanitation.

I have been perfecting my craft over the last 6 years and I’m part of a very exclusive list of fewer than a dozen Master Permanent Cosmetic Tattooists in Virginia. To keep up with the high demand for these services I opened Lynchburg’s first cosmetic tattoo studio, dedicated exclusively to the art of permanent cosmetics and medical tattooing. I take great pride in producing high quality work that is tailored to each person by enhancing his or her natural features.

What is

Permanent Makeup?

Micropigmentation, commonly referred to as permanent makeup, is the art and science of implanting pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. Permanent makeup is a form of tattooing.  The application is a process which includes topical anesthetics, and a small single-use, disposable needle to deposit color (pigment) into the skin. Permanent cosmetics is a means of enhancing your natural features, so you can look fresh-faced around the clock!

Reasons to Consider Permanent Makeup:

• Convenience and saving time

• Active, outdoor lifestyles

• Visual impairment or contact lenses

• Arthritis or tremors of the hands

• Asymmetrical features

• Thinning or light eyebrows

• Allergies to conventional makeup

• Absent or thin hair due to alopecia,
   chemotherapy, burns or accidents

 Permanent eyeliner enhances your natural features, and when done conservatively still allows you the freedom to dramatize your look with traditional makeup for evening wear and special occasions.
