First of all- Thank you for taking a few minutes to check out my site!
My goal is to provide exceptional services in a cozy, intimate setting. My background is in aesthetics but I also love doing Permanent Cosmetics! Whether you’re here to get a facial, a chemical peel, a lash lift, or for a whole new set of brows or eyeliner- know that I take your health and safety into account just as much as your comfort and privacy.

Hi! I'm Mary with Wink Ink! A little about me...
I’ve been an aesthetician since 2005 and have worked in just about every setting possible-salon/spa, laser center, dermatology, medical spa, etc. I love learning new things and meeting new people, so my career is pretty much perfect because it’s never the same day twice!
I decided a couple of years ago that I wanted to work towards becoming an independent aesthetician. I wanted more freedom in my schedule and more freedom to perform the services that I really believe in and that make my clients happy. I didn’t like always feeling pressured to sell, sell, sell. Deciding to learn Microblading has been a huge step- but so worth it. I had the pleasure of training with International Brow Design in Atlanta. The owner of the company, Julia Milin, was featured recently on Good Morning America and has been recognized as an industry leader. My instructor, Katrina Wallis, has also been recognized in the industry and has been featured in magazine articles! Such a confidence builder to learn from the best!
You may have noticed that I divide my time between St. Louis and Oklahoma City. My husband and I have lived in St. Louis since 2002 but in 2019 we decided to relocate to Oklahoma City to be closer to my parents and extended family. Moving to another state and starting over as a self-employed business owner is scary, let me tell ya! The laws in Oklahoma are very strict with regard to Microblading and Permanent Cosmetics & they would not recognize my former training and/or my work experience. Talk about starting from scratch! I had to go back to school with an instructor that is recognized by the state to be legally certified in the state of Oklahoma. So, I consider myself double educated! As of January 2020 I'm FINALLY ready to open my doors here in Oklahoma City, and can't wait!
It’s so exciting and liberating to be in control of my own business & I can’t wait to see where it goes from here!
