Gaston Siciliano began his career in the tattoo industry in 2007, at the age of 17. In 2009, his first creation was the lightest weight coil machine device available at that time, with the nearest competition weighing 3 times more. After moving to the United States, Gaston continued to pursue his passion as a tattoo shop owner with an unwavering focus on the design and development of revolutionary devices with never-done-before features.
As the Founder and CEO of FK Irons and Darklab, Gaston has expanded his focus to become a leading authority in the increasingly complex and competitive field of permanent makeup device engineering. In 2016, Gaston founded Microbeau International which has rapidly grown to become one of the most recognized brands in permanent makeup. Gaston is the mastermind behind Microbeau’s best known products…the fully adjustable and interchangeable pen style rotary Xion S with an autoclavable grip, the feather-weight, sleek but powerful Bellar, and the first dedicated SMP device, the Apollo, designed to alleviate fatigue from the long hours and close work of SMP, while delivering exceptional results.
Gaston is widely regarded as one of the most knowledgeable and intuitive permanent makeup device advisors in the industry. He routinely lends his wisdom and expertise at international shows and events, and helps other manufacturers evolve and innovate, believing firmly that the industry is enriched through mentorship, sharing and collaboration.
With a view to ensuring PMU artists have the finest and most durable, ergonomic devices, Gaston’s creations have reshaped the PMU industry because of their ingenuity and superior design.
