By ED FRANKS ( , Pine Island Eagle

A new business opened on the island a few weeks ago. Paradise Permanent Cosmetics is owned and operated by Peg Mason. Many people on the island know her as their waitress or bartender over the past 15 years.

Mason started out at Cap'n Con's and after 7 years moved to the southern end of the island to manage the Raymary Street Grill, where she befriended "Old Man" Guy Glinski, the island's renowned harmonica player. Glinski eventually moved into the home of Mason and her husband, Michael, and lived there until his death at 100 years old four years later.

Mason's next stop was at the Ragged Ass Saloon, where she met the good folks of St. James City. She was also bartender at Flatheads.

Most recently she was a server at Blue Dog Bar and Grill in Matlacha where there is a "no smoking" policy.

"After 44 years of smoking, I finally quit," Mason said. "This is also when my feet were telling me to find another line of work and I decided to go back to school and learn 'Permanent Makeup.' I attended John Hashey's school for 'Permanent Makeup Apprentice' and although the state only requires 40 hours, I completed his 700-hour course."

Paradise Cosmetics is located inside Tropical Hair Gallery at the Center near Subway.

"I do eyebrows, eye liner, lips, tattoo removal and corrections, clinical needling and dermal rolling (collagen stimulation), she said.

For appointments, contact Mason at 283-7617 or stop by Tropical Hair Gallery and say hello.
