Tara-Lynn Baeza is an incredibly talented aesthetician, make-up artist, and educator. She has trained hundreds of aestheticians, cosmetologists, and seasoned beauty professionals in how to perfect and reconstruct brows. Brows are her passion. So much so that she has decided to create her very own business dedicated to the artistry of creating soft and natural looking brows with microblading.
“I’ve always believed makeup at its best is a light subtle enhancement and I aim for the same with permanent makeup.”
Starting her Own Business
When we met Tara last June her business was rapidly expanding. Her talent and skill allow her to help and empower women every day and the demand for her service prompted her to open her own business Brows Of Prey -a Cosmetic Tattooing, Microblading, Makeup & Wellness Center located in East Passyunk.
Zoning Board Of Adjustment
Because Tara’s business includes Tattoo services, her business is classified as “body art services” under the zoning code. This classification automatically generates a refusal for a permit if it is located within 500 feet of a school or residential district. This refusal doesn’t mean the business isn’t allowed to open, it just means you will need special approval from the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) in order to obtain your permit.
This kind of appeal is something we here at Philadelphia Zoning love to help our clients with. The 3-6month process to appeal a refusal can seem overwhelming, but let us assure you, where there’s a will there’s a way!
Tara’s project received unanimous support from the neighbors and board of the East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association as well as the Zoning Board of Adjustment and is now open for business.
