Ink Illusions was founded by Zena Bratcher who has a passion for changing lives.  Initially concentrating from 2013 on laser tattoo  removal, hair removal and skin rejuvenation through Laserlux UK, Zena created Ink Illusions in 2018 having seen how much medical tattooing can transform people’s lives and bring back confidence.

Zena’s first step in to the world of tattooing started with training with Scalpology (and later Scalp Micro UK) who are renowned for their excellence and years of experience in Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). She has also received training with Brazilian stretch mark tattoo camouflage pioneer Roldolpho Torres, Mary Scott Hall, plus travelled to the USA for a different perspective on stretch mark camouflage with Studio Conceal, and Medical Tattooing with Finishing Touches (Level 4).  She was also lucky to have met Gabriel Renaud from Magic Skin Tone Ink in 2018, her inspiration to bring his technique to the UK. He shared his knowledge of Brazilian stretch mark tattooing with Zena before his passing in April 2020.

Zena has drawn on her experience, plus knowledge from so many other trainers, t take the Scar & Stretch mark tattoo camouflage to the next level, with a holistic approach to ensure the best and safest possible outcome for clients.

Zena is a lifetime VTCT member and has completed multiple training courses in Laser & IPL, including VTCT Level 4, Laser Safety and x2 Laser Tattoo Removal specific courses from Dermalase and Advance, as well as Level 5 in Laser Tattoo and Benign Pigmentation removal. Zena is also educated to Master Level (MSc) albeit in an unrelated field!

These qualifications and experience, backed by a BSc degree in Psychology, means Zena is approachable, caring and understanding, no matter how self-conscious a client may be over their condition.  She is also a qualified teacher and is passionate about passing on her knowledge to students, only providing training of the hightest quality.

Zena is based in London in the UK, and travels to teach her skills. She has passed on her experience to the team at Ink illusions as well as hundreds of international students.  

Her main passion is helping people heal their scars and stretch marks.
