Born in Tucson, raised in Phoenix, Arizona. When she was young, Taryn enjoyed doing her friend’s hair and makeup, she was a natural at it. Little did she know it would eventually lead to her career. She studied Architecture at Arizona State University for a year, then switched her major to general Mathematics because Architecture bored her, having still no clue what she wanted to do in life.
Taryn was introduced to the industry through laser tattoo removal. She got an embarrassing tattoo and desperately needed it removed. After seeing how well it worked it peaked her interest into joining the beauty industry. She was introduced to cosmetic/paramedical tattooing while in school for Electrolysis.
School ignited a strong passion in cosmetic tattooing. Immediately after graduation Taryn began sourcing the best artists and trainers in the world in their respective specialties. She has traveled all over the world and has done hundreds of hours of continued education. She has trained with or been mentored by Nataliya Yeremenko, Toni Belfatto, Alina Soloveva, Linda Dixon, Tina Davies, Doreen Lindgren, Anna Savina, Daria Chuprys, Teryn Darling, Will Anthony, Lanette Scherr, Rhonda Vacanti, Nancy Gagliardo, Joyce Carusoula, Jodi Stoski, Marjorie Winebrenner Grimm, Mary Ritcherson, James Olaya and more.
Cosmetic Aesthetics was launched in 2013. Shortly thereafter partnered with the largest SMP company in the world and ran their first 2 locations. After a year ended the partnership to focus on Cosmetic Aesthetics so she could have full control of the quality of work . Since then has become globally recognized for her SMP work and training.
