Guest Blog Post by Athena Karsant, a master cosmetic, corrective and paramedical tattoo specialist located in Union Square.
For almost the last century, Union Square has been the premiere location in San Francisco for all things beauty and fashion. However, Union Square has also been the home to some of the world's most renowned doctors, plastic surgeons, aestheticians and cosmetologists. In 1929, the 450 Sutter building was built and quickly became the elite location for doctors and dentists. Since then, it has been known as the place to go for any kind of medical or aesthetic procedure. I’m lucky enough to be a part of this truly impressive community where I specialize in cosmetic tattooing. You can learn more about me at www.foolingmothernature.com.
