Testimonial for BBP

To our fellow tattoo shops from Mark Walters,

Jane Adler has been teaching our BBP classes for my studio for the past 5 years. Living Canvas Tattoos Inc is a premier custom studio that has been in business for 19 yrs in Tempe, Arizona. We also work with the city and state to implement standards in the tattoo industry in Arizona.

We use Jane Adler for BBP training because we want to offer our employees the highest standard of learning in this specified field.
Not only does she teach the class well.  But she breaks down sections to make them more understandable for everyone.
Her standards for teaching are the highest out of any BBP I have found, and I have taken a ton of them over the years!

Jane is the best I have found for my premier custom studio and I wouldn't settle for Anything but the best for our standards.

And that is Jane Adler!

Testimonials over the years!

Hello, Jane!
I was in your office a little over a week ago .... XXXXXX..... and you worked on both of my lower lids to correct thick eyeliner from someone else. I don't know, exactly, what you did, but the scabs fell off yesterday and I am SO THRILLED. You did a remarkable job and I will be forever thankful!! For several years I was afraid to let anyone touch my eyes and over the years many other permanent cosmetic technicians told me there was "no way" to thin the eyeliner. I was also told that they could use a color of ink that would match my natural shade and try to hide some of the black ink. Still others told me that they could fix my eyeliner by making them all the same thickness. While that would not have been what I wanted I would have at least felt much better having even eyeliner instead of four different eyeliner widths : ) .
Today was the first time in six years I woke up and knew that sometime soon you would have my eyeliner even, and thin. I, literally, cried! I never thought it would be possible. I am so thankful I found you and even more thankful that you are so remarkable at what you do. For six years I have been so upset about my eyes and now I have something to look forward to every day.
I will NEVER be able to thank you enough!! I can't wait until my eyeliner is perfect. When this is all said and done I want to write a testimonial for you. I want to include everything you did as well as all the time you devoted to me and my eyes. I am so EXCITED about my appointment in May!
Thank you .... SO MUCH!

Hi Jane,




 Okay, I know that I've only had these big bright bodacious lips for 8 hours, but hot damn girl - I LOVE EM!!!! Once again, you've outdone yourself. I have tried in the past to make my top lip fuller to match the bottom and I always ended up looking like Bobo the clown. I don't know how you did it. I look like a freakin movie star. You are the best!

Rachelle Stine
Jane, It was worth the wait and cost for my eyeliner and eyebrows. For the first time my brows are shaped and I do not have to apply eyeliner any more. Thank you so much!!!




I am so happy! All my friends should be calling soon!

Brenda Hays, Arizona

My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner! Jane did a beautiful job. The permanent eyeliner is a tremendous timesaver with makeup application as well as eliminating the need to frequently repair smears that occur with traditional eye pencil applied liner. I highly recommend this procedure performed by Jane's skilled hand.

Pat Engle, Arizona 


I love my lip liner. Especially, the new bow.
My husband tells me how beautiful I look.

Triny Anderson, New Mexico


Thanks for the lift!

Carol Cocoa, Arizona

I love not having to draw on my brows anymore. Thanks for setting me straight on the correct brow color for my complexion.

Nicole, Arizona


I love my natural lip extension. Thanks a bunch!

Bita, Arizona


Thanks for getting my areola¹s blended. 

Debbie, Arizona


I love my upper eyeliner and brows. My daughter is thrilled too and looks forward to getting her brows done next.

Jeri, Arizona

Dear Jane,

I wanted to send you a testimonial for future clients to read.

I was quite nervous and skeptical at first about having permanent make-up but knew I really wanted to have it done. I spent almost a year doing research on each type of permanent procedure as well as visiting several offices for consultations and paying for a weekend instructional permanent make-up class to have hands on knowledge. I figured, if I was going to invest in my face "permanently", I needed to make the wisest choice possible. There was no doubt in my mind first of all that "Softap" was the way to go and I decided that you had the best credentials to do an excellent job. I flew from Nashville to Phoenix to have you do my eyeliner and full lips. It was well worth the investment! You did a superior job! You not only gave me the best color choices possible for my skin tones, but you gave me the most beautiful new bow on my lips that was so natural and so well proportioned that I could not believe it! I absolutely am thrilled with your expertise and wonderful care. I highly recommend you to everyone who is considering permanent make-up! You are the best!

Margie Moore

Hey, thanks for sending me those pictures. I love my brows and eyeliner and so does everyone else. I am so excited about them!!!

Jakel Jobe, Arizona

Permanent make-up changed my life!

I don't know when it started or why but I have been pulling out my eyebrows and eyelashes for years. It's classified as an Impulse Control Disorder called Trichotillomania (Trick-o-till-o-mania) and is defined as the "recurrent pulling out of one's own hair that results in considerable hair loss". No one really knows what causes it and the remedies include behavioral therapy and medication that seldom work for long.

Well, as you can imagine, not having any eyebrows or eyelashes leaves one's face very plain and without definition. They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul and eyebrows give definition to expression. Well I had no curtains on my windows and no expressions. I felt very plain and sometimes even like an alien. People would tell me I'm beautiful and I would politely say thank you when on the inside I said yeah, right. I only bothered with makeup if it was a special occasion when cameras would be around. It was too difficult and time consuming to try to draw straight and even eyebrows every day. If someone caught me off guard I'd hide. People would ask me what happened to my lashes and I would tell them I had an allergic reaction to mascara and they all fell out. I don't know if Whoopee Goldberg does this or not but what did you think the first time you saw her face? To me it wasn't odd; it was comforting to know I wasn't the only person in the world with a bald face.

I had thought about permanent makeup for a long time but it was a scary thought. I have tattoos and the thought of a tattoo machine near my face and eyes just freaked me out. And going to a professional permanent make up artist is something I couldn't afford. Then I found a SofTap® page on the Internet. It was a lot more comforting thought than a machine but still expensive. That page led me to Jane's page and the possibility of being a model for one of her classes. Being a model was a lot less expensive than being a client. I called her and asked a million questions. She was very patient and assured me that my face wouldn't end up crooked or scarred for life. So I made an appointment to be a model the next time I was in Arizona visiting family.

On June 30, 2002, I drove to Jane's school with a lot of excitement and a little apprehension. She ended up doing my make up herself because her class had to be rescheduled. We talked a lot. We worked out the colors to use, she drew on my face to get just the right look and placement that I wanted, and then I lay on the table. She did my eyeliner first. I was so amazed; it was totally painless for me! I think at some point, as she was doing my brows, I dozed off. And when she was finished, I was a totally new me, inside as well as out! I looked into that mirror and started to cry.

When I got home to my parent's house my Mom cried and my Dad had this wonderful grin on his face. I'll never forget it. My whole family (who normally didn't approve of my having tattoos) and all of my friends were thrilled!

A few weeks later Jane sent me the before and after pictures you see here. To me the difference is as wide as the Grand Canyon is long! I definitely, whole-heartedly and emphatically recommend SofTap® permanent makeup to everyone dealing with facial Trichotillomania!! Jane, Thank you! You are an angel and I can never thank you enough for what you have done for me. I'll be back as soon as I can for my touch up!

Wendy Fischer, Tennessee

Hi Jane,

I just wanted to tell you how much I love my makeup. My plastic surgeon told me you have a job anytime you want to move to Florida. He has never seen work so natural looking. Thank you! I look forward to seeing you next time I come to Arizona to visit Elisabeth.

Helen Mosley, Florida


Thank you! This is the best thing, I ever did for myself.

Pat Ulibarri, Arizona

I am a certified permanent cosmetic technician from Minnesota. I flew all the way to Arizona to have my lips done by Jane! Lips are an advanced procedure, and I would not trust them to just anyone. Because of Jane's expert abilities, I got a beautiful enhanced color after only one application of pigment. I get compliments every day on both the color and shape of my lips. I am now free from of the bondage of lipstick! I would highly recommend having permanent lip color, and I would recommend even more highly that you have them done by Jane Adler. I love my eyeliner too!

A satisfied client,
Nancy, Minnesota


It is so easy to get ready, every day! Thank you!

Joyce, Arizona

Hey Jane,

I just love my upper eyeliner and lip liner. I got a kick out of the cat pictures, you sent me. It was no big deal. I healed really fast!

Maggie Brennan, Arizona

Boy Jane, I was scared to get my lips done. It was all worth it!

Thank you for giving me a face.

Connie Stein, Arizona


Just wanted to drop a quick note. Thanks for the nap! Really, I cannot believe, I fell asleep. My family loves my eyes, brows & lips!

Jamie Shipman, Arizona


I just love that Chocolate Truffle! Now, when I am outside my brows do not come off in the heat. Thanks for making my life simple.

Lisa Rodriguez, Arizona


I love my brows. So do my clients. After chemotherapy, my brows really thinned out. I just love them. I am healthy and have pretty brows, what more could a girl want.

Susan, Arizona


Thank you for fixing my lips and brows. Your creative eye is amazing.

Margaret, Arizona


I love my brows; I will be back next month to get my lips done!

Paula, Arizona


I am really enjoying my eyeliner. I cannot believe it has already been three years. Your favorite manicurist!

Renee Abbot

I keep running out of your business cards. My clients keep raving about my eyeliner.

Julia Essert

My eyebrows are fabulous! Thank you so much for the flawless work you did, as well as the time it took to do it. I appreciate you, and am a "permanent" fan of your artistry.
Ever so sincerely,
-Jennifer Hartman Bonham

My eyebrows are so awesome. I'll have to remember not to pluck them because they look so much like real hair. Just unbelievable...a true testament to a true artist...always a step ahead with new techniques and skills.
Barb Austin


Just to let you know, there was no recovery time needed for my eyebrows.

Immediately after I left your studio I did about 4 hours of errands and by the time , I arrived at my house, I was fine, no pain. I didn't even have to take the aspirin I brought.

The next day, an older lady told me I was lucky to be blessed with the most perfect eyebrows. I thanked her and told her that she could be blessed with these exact eyebrows, too. I gave her your information and told her not to go anywhere else, due to the relative painless experience. I hope she called.

Antoinette Todd

Hi Jane
I just wanted to give you my compliments on the great job you did for me. I LOVE my new eyebrows. In the past I had tried to draw on the "perfect" brows and did not come anywhere close to what you did. You are a master. I am sorry that I wasn't very responsive when you finished, I was indeed, like "a deer in the headlights". It seemed so different, but now I am used to it, and I wish I had done this 40 years ago.
Thank you so very much!
Hi Jane,

I just wanted to let you know that I went for my eye doctor appointment
yesterday and she told me she sees lots of permanent eyeliner and mine
was the best she has seen!!

I think it has been almost 2 years since you did my eyes and they still
look great.

Karen from the Meland Clinic

  Hi Everyone,

This is in no way an advertisement. I do not work for Jane Adler or SofTap. This is my personal opinion on a class that, I took. I stress the importance of continued education for all of us. I think it is important to share good news about a training experience.

I just thought I would share my latest adventure!! My husband and I decided to take our blast off to the empty nest trip in Arizona. I chose Arizona so that I could take a one day advanced SofTap® class with Jane Adler.

I arrived at Jane's studio on Friday of last week. After a warm welcome Jane gave me a tour of her new studio. I think I had my mouth hanging open the whole time, WOW!! This studio is so beautiful and professional. It is obvious that Jane put her heart and soul into setting up this studio with her clients and students in mind.

I went to this class with an open mind to learn. Jane was so prepared and has quite an eye for detail in everything she does. There were models scheduled and no interruptions. We worked from 9am to 6pm. The time flew as I learned many new techniques and had a very fun time!! This class definitely exceeded my high expectations!!!! Thanks Jane

We just arrived home and we had a great trip!!
Continuing education is motivational as well as educational.

What to Look For!

Warning!!!! FYI to All!

DO NOT let anyone tell you is ok to use camo skin tone pigments to cover poorly done permanent makeup. HUGE mistake!!!!

Find someone skilled in color and shape correction that is honest. Trust me I am queen of corrections and I see so much worse crap that people try to mask with camo pigments.

Also warning it is not legal in the state of Arizona to be tattooed out of a residence! When you see adds for $50.00 permanent makeup please run. Trust me as an expert is OSHA BBP standards for all forms of tattooing one cannot afford to offer safe and clean procedures at those fees.

It is your face and health that matters!

Letter of recommendation

To Whom It May Concern,

It has been my honor to work with Jane Adler in the area of Occupational Health and Safety for almost ten years. From our first meeting as an OSHA Training Institute Instructor I could tell that her shop, Facial Art by Jane, had established a safety and health protocol that I had never seen in any tattoo, piercing or ‘body art studio that I have visited. The safety and health technique that Jane has established rivals that of many of the medical clinics that I have worked with across the United State. Her procedures should be emulated by others in her profession.

In an industry that has been unregulated for so very long it is important to recognize the steps that leaders such as Jane have taken. By researching and enacting the procedures for Blood Borne Pathogens and other safety measures Jane has created a model that the industry should embrace. She has continuously improved not only her own operation and shop, but those of other artists who sought her advice and knowledge. As an authorized OSHA Outreach trainer she has presented superb training that is only now being required by various states to ensure the health of customers, clients and the general public. Jane has been ahead of the ‘power curve’ on this one for years.

I heartily recommend Jane Adler to anyone who is in need of any type of safety training, especially in the field of Blood Borne Pathogens. She is, without a doubt, the most informed and influential person in her field that I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
