Dema-Technician/earn $250 an hour (palm springs/palm desert)

Beware of this woman and her fake ads below! Her current name is GUADALUPE PONTE, but she has several aliases. She is a fraud and a crook, and you will NEVER earn a dime from anything she claims to teach! All you need to do to prove it is a search of Riverside County lawsuits. There you will find her history-she's been sued at least 30 times, including by a friend for a loan she never repaid. She's filed for bankruptcy at least 3 times and never pays for her leased vehicles, registrations or outstanding tickets. She has countless bench warrants for her crimes, which is why she keeps changing her identity!

You will pay thousands of dollars just to "learn" how to TATTOO, then she will claim the certificate that she promises you can't be had for another 6 months! But what's worse is you don't need a certificate to TATTOO in CA! The "kit" she includes can be purchased for $99 online. You can teach yourself on a rubber placemat, save thousands of dollars and months of wasted time and avoid ever meeting this malevolent con artist. Her "knowledge" is worthless, but she will make you pay thousands, and then she says she'll give you the answers anyway! She also offers to take the Health Dept. (blood pathogens) exam with you by sitting by the computer and giving you the answers!

She uses lidocaine, a controlled substance she is not allowed to use, then tells patients to keep it a secret as she tells them to buy it in Mexico, or that she will have her doctor boyfriend get it, on the patients-if she can ever find it! She loses everything and bitches at the onset of every class because something is missing. She calls her employees and bitches at them for an hour while everyone has to wait for this incompetent loser to set the petrified "students" loose on poor Mexican women who go to her office to get permanent makeup done for free.

Lidocaine is not to be used by anyone who is not a licensed physician, she gets it from some doctor she is having sex with. And her students know because that is what she talks about during her "classes." She also talks about how much weight she's gained and how she needs to lose it in order to get her doctor boyfriend to find her attractive. NOT useful information for anyone, but you must feign an interest in this egomaniac at all times!

She has a non-profit, scar-treatment center, scars gone or scars for freedom that hasn't operated legally in years and yet she gets self-gratification every time she draws a tiny bit of attention to her "charity work." She claims she does it instead of advertising and to bring in clients, and she certainly never does any scar revision on veterans!

She's an overweight, insecure, youth chasing narcissist. Students must listen to her announce the latest round of botox, fillers or peels she has done constantly. But no matter how much revision she does on her faade, inside she is an ugly, fat, dirty, (just look at her face, hair, clothes and office), thief who steals from everyone she meets. She has no morals or decency; she's a malignant, lying scam-artist.

Her "best" student is a filthy woman named Bonnie who wears a pink matted wig and stinks from her inability to shower or wash the ridiculous pink rug on her head. Bonnie can't figure out how to TATTOO eyebrows on the victims Guadalupe's students practice on: poor Mexican women from Coachella Valley. Guadalupe never helps students actually learn how to TATTOO on people, she insists they learn by practicing on them, and it shows. Bonnie TATTOOS eyebrows in the wrong place, then Guadalupe mocks the poor Mexican patients by saying, "What are they going to do, sue us? They don't even have green cards!" Bonnie is a disaster and liar. She destroys women's faces with her incompetence and Guadalupe doesn't give a damn about any of the mistakes made on these poor women who have to live with crooked, pink eyebrows, (due to red ink used on their eyebrows!) scribbled lip liner and horrid blue eyeliner.

Plenty of people have been robbed by this con artist. Just ask her buddy, Jackie Devereaux at (888)837-0470, an unemployed ex-entertainment lawyer who spills out over the chair in Guadalupe's office because she is another woman who over indulges in anything she can consume. She gets paid nothing but is so sad and lonely she hangs on to Guadalupe for any activity in her vacuous life. And the lawsuits are a constant!

Do yourselves a favor and contact any tattoo parlor or permanent makeup instructor and ask them how you can learn to TATTOO without destroying trusting women's faces. Practicing on a frozen pig's foot and human beings doesn't cut it.

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Guadalupe Ponte Liabeled

AUTHOR: anonymous - ()

 My name is Guadalupe Ponte. I am a licenced (City of Palm Desert #11-00051841, County of Riverside Environmental Health Department #FA0028318), insured, reputable business woman.I have been a state certified instructor and a working dermagraphic specialist for the last 18 years. I have a client base of 8,500 and a large group (over 1 hundred) of sucessful, working, professional dermagraphic specialists, that I have trained. I also donate my time to charity through Scars to Freedom, a 501(c)3 non-profit. I help wounded war veterans with scar revision, completely free of charge.

This report, though written anonymously, has clearly been penned by Shelly Daily, Eva Voorhees, and Julie Carlson. These three women were incompetent, disgruntaled, and kisturbed. They took my class and though completing it , decided to drop out right before graduation and certification.

These women have DUI's and arrest records.They were disruptive, unqualified, negative, and looking for someone to blame for their life problems.

30 days prior to this devastating report, these 3 students Shelly Daily, Eva Voorhees, and Julie Carlson completed my training, with all equipment included, and gained knowledge of my practice. They proceed to attack me and sued in Small Claims Court for a refund. They lost! The court found in my favor. This is public knowledge.Feel free to look it up. First to loose Eva Voorhees.... second to loose Shelly Daily....and Julie Carlson, who attended all court dates did not proceed further due to the lack of meritof their claims and her DUI record. This is all public knowledge.

Prior to these horrible lies being said about me, I  had a perfect record. My services to the community have helped a great many people with scar revision. I have help many students achieve a new and sucessful career. Our charity has helped over 50 soldiers/veterans with their war wounds.

I am deeply hurt that these three viscous women would say such lies about me with out any facts or backup. We only knew each other for 6 weeks. I can only hope that anyone who reads anything about me will go to my three websites(scarstofreedom.org, scarsgone.com, learninkstrc.com) and form their own opinions about me and my business. I hope anyone reading this will want to help Scars to Freedom and stop defaming and misjudging me. I have spent 20 years of hard work helping others. That's a fact.

Thank you.


Guadalupe Ponte
