Meet the Team | Amber
Meet Amber Curtis – Amber is a laser technician in our New York offices. Watch Amber’s interview above, and read on for more about what it’s like to work at The Finery NYC.
How long have you worked at The Finery?
I’ve worked at The Finery since February 2019.
Why did you choose to work at The Finery?
I chose to work at The Finery because it’s the best of the best of the best, duh. (That’s a partial quote from Men in Black)
For real though, I’ve followed this company within the industry for a long time, since they were Tataway. I’ve always respected what gets done here. I like the vibe and of course I want to be a part of the best!
Best part of your job?
It’s honestly so fulfilling. I get to meet really cool people from all over the world and I get to work with amazingly hilarious and brilliant people.
We chat about laser beams on the daily (how cool is that?), and I get to assist people along their journey to feeling better about themselves and their tattoos.
Biggest accomplishment at The Finery?
Getting hired, for real. It wasn’t easy. The standards are high here and I worked my tush off to be here. Went back to school, did lots of training and compared myself to a puppy with all my shots when asked if I was licensed, I think that’s what worked.
Most challenging part of your job?
Not being able to give my clients instant gratification. Whomp whomp 🙁
I do have tattoos, quite a few. No interesting stories though.
I’m in legit nap time mode when I get tattooed. Give me a snack, sunglasses and a pillow. Don’t talk to me, but please talk around me to distract me from the hell of my own making.
How do you kill time?
