I have been a Registered Nurse (RN) for about 40 years. I’ve worked in oncology, neurology, and have been in charge of a number of different types of hospital units. I’ve been a home care nurse and supervisor. I have been a nursing educator since January of 1990 and have been a nursing education administrator since 2004. I recently retired in February 2020. My nursing career was productive, rewarding, and a gift. It truly was the best career I could’ve chosen.

What Led to Founding Permanent Cosmetics Atelier?

A few years ago my hairstylist suggested that I get my eyebrows microbladed (as I had alopecia on ¾ of my eyebrow area). I wore bangs for years because I didn’t have eyebrows to frame my face. I scheduled the microblading procedure almost immediately — and I was thrilled that my face was once again framed by eyebrows!

I looked into working in the permanent cosmetics industry and really believed that I could help others feel good about, and love, their appearance — and for some, maybe even feel whole again.

I thought about my oncology patients that lost their hair due to chemotherapy and remembered their feelings of loss. I knew that I could once again help oncology patients and other clients that experienced alopecia. I also knew that my basic drawing skill would also help those that want and need medical permanent cosmetic tattoos such as simulating areola and 3D nipple tissue.

It seems that my interaction with oncology patients has come full circle. I helped them when they were patients undergoing cancer treatment and now I can help them again in closing that chapter with the application of 3D areola – many have stated that they felt “whole again”. This truly is a blessing and one that I will cherish for the rest of my life.

I’ve enjoyed helping others by being their nurse or nursing educator. I am now helping others outside of the nursing world achieve a look they want. We all feel better when we look in the mirror and like what we see.

Dayana Cartagena


Hi all!

My name is Dayana Cartagena.

A little bit of me, I am happily married, a mommy of one amazing boy and one beautiful girl. Jayden And Kaylee. I'm also a fur mom of a chocolate lab. Everyone who knows me knows that I am very cheerful. I like to dance, sing, cook, bake, and make people laugh.

As a mom I have limited time to do my make-up, especially during crazy school mornings. In 2021 I decided to get my powder eyebrows done. I was fascinated with the results so the same year I decided to take the permanent makeup fundamental course at The Jhon-Jhon Institute.

My priority as a permanent makeup artist is to make other women feel more comfortable and beautiful in their own skin. To see their smile at the end of the procedure motivates me to continue changing people's lives.

Looking forward to seeing you!

And for my Spanish speaking friends:
