Kelly Hallam, RTNM CPCP

Kelly is one of the Lower Mainland’s only permanent makeup (PMU) and paramedical tattoo artists with an extensive science and healthcare background. Although a large percentage of Kelly’s clients come from Coquitlam, PoCo and Port Moody, many travel from Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and beyond for her services.

Kelly has been a Registered Technologist of Nuclear Medicine for almost 20 years. She spent many of those in one of the Lower Mainland’s busiest trauma hospitals before returning to her artistic roots and transitioning into one of Vancouver’s largest dermatology clinics as a cosmetic and medical laser technician and then on to PMU.
Kelly offers a variety of micropigmentation (cosmetic and paramedical) procedures, including microblading and powder brows, permanent eyeliner, and permanent lip colour using a variety of hand and machine techniques. As a breast cancer and double mastectomy survivor, Kelly is passionately skilled in areola restoration tattooing, scar  reduction and scar camoflauge tattooing.

More
An artist since childhood, a cosmetologist since age 18, and a dress/costume designer for over 25 years, permanent makeup and paramedical tattooing allow Kelly to combine her love of art and beauty with her healthcare, dermatology and science background.
Kelly is committed to ongoing training and frequently travels for advanced education. She is a member of the worldwide Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP) and one of Canada’s very few Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (CPCP). In 2018 Kelly earned the SPCP distinction of earning the highest CPCP score worldwide!
Kelly owns the online Halcyon Cosmetic tattoo supply and pigment store and is the official Canadian Distributor for Li Pigments, Canadian distributor and lead trainer for LI-FT Tattoo Removal Solution, and Canadian distributor for Skinful Beauty tattoo products.
While Kelly is skilled in creating art on young and healthy skin, she specializes in permanent makeup procedures on aging and compromised skin, and corrections and removal of poor permanent makeup. If your brows have faded to reveal a rogue colour, or you’ve had a less-than-ideal permanent makeup application, Kelly is and expert in colour theory, shape correction and/or removal.
Kelly’s experience in healthcare fuels her drive to ensure safety and education in the field of permanent cosmetics, and medical tattooing. Halcyon Cosmetic provides private and semi-private microblading and PMU training, and tattoo removal training to ensure that future artists are not only skilled at what they do, but are also well-versed in asepsis and sanitation, and chemistry, all vital components of PMU.
