Basma Hammed is a medical cosmetic tattooist in Toronto who first came to the profession by personal necessity when she couldn't find help elsewhere. It all started when Basma was a two-year-old girl in Iraq and a pan of hot oil accidentally fell on the left side of her face, requiring multiple plastic surgeries – a total of 100 procedures – but none with success in covering the large red scar tissue or with creating the look of a natural eyebrow.
Basma got a tattoo machine and created the eyebrow permanently herself. It was then she also realized she could tattoo her face matching the skin color of the healthy tissue. So, she went to aesthetician school and soon began working on herself, with much success (as you can see above).
Today, she runs the Basma Hameed Clinic, where she helps everyone from burn victims to breast cancer patients and others wishing to cover surgical scars (among other procedures).
