People are flying from overseas for her work, and people are traveling to ZS Camouflage from interstate almost weekly. Could this finally be the solution we’ve been waiting for?
Scars and disfigurements on the body can have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem and confidence. The visible reminder of an injury or surgery can be a constant source of self-consciousness and shame, leading to negative self-image, anxiety and even depression.
From avoiding mirrors to avoiding social situations, the psychological toll can be immense. The emotional impact of scars and disfigurements can also extend to relationships, with some feeling unworthy of love and affection due to their appearance.
Paramedical skin therapist, Zaynab Sheeth is the founder of ZS Camouflage, a business that specializes in paramedical camouflage tattooing. Zaynab’s expertise lies in customizing ink colors to match an individual’s skin tone, covering most areas on the body that have been disfigured or changed due to surgeries and many skin-born conditions like vitiligo.
Zaynab’s passion for helping people started over 11 years ago when she was working in the beauty industry. She realized that most of her customers were hesitant to show their bodies because of scars and stretch marks they had due to pregnancy, operations, weight gain and loss, abusive partners, collagen deficiency, and other reasons.
The problem Zaynab is solving is one that affects most people. She believes that at least 45 out of 50 people in a room have something on their bodies they wish they could cover up.
Zaynab Sheeth spent years and thousands of dollars on creams, oils, and treatments looking for solutions for her customers. To no avail, she decided to develop her own treatments and techniques.
In 2018, she was accredited in paramedical therapy and trained one-on-one with her professor. Over the years, she has continued to up her knowledge, completing courses in Australia, Brazil, and London.
Zaynab’s work has changed the lives of many people who had given up hope of feeling confident about themselves. She has had clients fly from overseas for her work, and people travel to ZS Camoflague from interstate almost weekly. Her work is a permanent fix, restoring confidence and hope to people who had given up on feeling good about themselves.
Paramedical camouflage tattooing is a quick and permanent fix, restoring natural beauty to what it once was. Mothers with stretch marks post-pregnancy can show off their stomachs again, and women who spend thousands on surgeries, from tummy tucks to breast augmentation, can cover up their scars and no longer have to cover up their bodies with clothing or make up.
Zaynab Sheeth shares, “My work has given me so much happiness in helping others feel good about themselves. The tears I’ve witnessed, the stories I’m told, scars from domestic violence, self-harm scars, drug abuse scars, bullying, post-cancer scars, burn victims, the list goes on. I can’t wait to be part of the story in so many lives.”
