Comments from Graduate Student

 "In awe" are the words I’d choose to describe my cosmetic tattoo training experience with MaryAnne and Simply Body Art.   


I am a professional with no prior experience in arts or tattoo. The training was consistently of excellence and exceeded my expectations. The one-on-one, hands-on training, and facilities were stellar. 

Not only is MaryAnne a trainer, she’s more like a mentor and keeps absolutely no “industry secrets” to herself. She shares all of what she knows in a well-thought-out flow from types of pigments and machine recommendations, to software and marketing techniques. 

She feels like my partner, and I don’t think that I could do this without her. Plus, she’s a perfectionist, which is such a great attribute as a cosmetic tattooer and trainer. Highly highly recommend. Unlikely you will find anyone as committed to your success as MaryAnne.

Thank you so much, MaryAnne, for all you do. For me, for our clients, and for the industry as a whole.

If you’d like to contact me to discuss my experience further, please ask MaryAnne for my contact information.
