Michele Paris and Ole Maiava, the managing directors of Anoint Skin Products Limited are partners in business and in life. They live in Auckland, New Zealand. Their eldest son Calen is a successful tattooer living in Lucerne, Switzerland where he works at ‘The Tattoo Studio’ with a number of prominent tattooers. Calen was apprenticed to Inia Taylor III who was apprenticed to Tufuga Ta Tatau, Su’a Suluape Paulo II.
All three of Ole and Michele’s children are tattooed and have sensitive skin unable to tolerate the usual aftercare available. This, plus the study of Aromatherapy led to Michele deciding to create a product specifically for tattoo. Anoint is completely plant based, 100% vegan and contains organic Lavender oil and Manuka oil from the East Cape of NZ.
