Quill and Ink Tattoo held its grand opening ceremony on Oct. 6, alongside members of the SnoValley Chamber of Commerce, North Bend Downtown Foundation and City of North Bend.
The tattoo shop, owned and operated by retired Air Force Officer and current per diem nurse Beverly Davidson, provides restorative and cosmetic tattoos, minor scar camouflage and fineline/tiny tattoos.
Having witnessed life-changing injuries during her time in the military, Davidson developed an interest in scar and camouflage restoration work.
Through a process known as scalp micropigmentation, Davidson can create the illusion of hair by tattooing tiny hair follicles in ink. That process can be used to restore both thinning eyebrows or baldness
“I thought to myself. I could really serve my community, whether that was through cosmetic tattoos or therapeutic tattoos,” Davidson told the Valley Record back in September. “Part of what helps a person have a perception of self identity is to have their facial features intact. If your eyebrows go away, it can be very significant and profound.”
