How long does cosmetic tattoo last?

The pigment can last for up to 5 years. Lighter colours will fade faster than the darker colours. The good news is that you are never stuck with a colour. It can be modified or changed.

What is cosmetic tattoo?

Non-allergenic pigments are blended for your specific colour preference and are implanted into the dermis layer of the skin.

What tool do you use?

I use a rotary machine. It is and electric pen like machine especially designed for cosmetic tattoo. It evenly distributes and implants the colour into the dermal layer of the skin. These soft, natural looking colours bring the best out of your features and result in a natural appearance, instead of the harsh traditional tattoo colours.

Does cosmetic tattooing hurt?

A topical anaesthetic is applied, so very little discomfort is experienced. Most of my clients say that it is irritating but not painful.

Where do the colors come from?

The pigments come from the United States, and have been made with FDA approved ingredients. The pigments are made of iron oxides, that are dispursed in alcohol and glycerin which are organic substances. All my pigments are of the highest quality and have been approved for Cosmetic Make up and Paramedical procedures.

Allergies from these gamma sterilized pigments are rare.

How long does each procedure take?

Depends on the area treated. Eyebrows approximately 1.5 hours, however each eyebrow takes usually only 15 minutes, most of the time is consultation lip blend (includes lipline) takes about 2 hours.

What is involved in the healing and post care?

Swelling may last from 2 to 72 hours, this is very individual. Aftercare will be covered before your procedure, and an aftercare sheet is provided for you to take home.

Cosmetic Tattoo colour will appear extremely intense and thick immediately after the procedure, this will fade in 5 to 10 days. Colours will continue to soften over the next couple of months.

Do I need to take time off work?

Most people do not need to take time off. Cold packs can be applied straight after the treatment, to help reduce any swelling.

Will I need more than one appointment?

Lips and eyebrows usually need a second treatment within 8 weeks Eyeliner does not always need a second treatment, depending on the absorption of the pigments.

Do I need a consultation?

Consultations are essential. Sometimes clients combine the consultation and procedure into a single visit. They may be travelling from out of town, or have limited time off work. Most have a consultation then make a booking at a later date, to help with your expectations

Do I come in with or without make up?

Preferably without make up. You can draw on your own lipline or eyebrows before you come in so I can see what shape you like, or I can draw them on for you.

You can also bring your favorite lipsticks, lipliners, eyeliners and brow pencils, so we can decide on the colour.

Do I shave my eyebrows?

Most certainly not. Although we can change the shape of the brows, we try to keep the eyebrows as natural looking as possible.

Am I too old to have cosmetic tattoo?

Cosmetic Tattoo is suitable for all ages. Especially the elderly find it hard to apply make up, but still want to look good. My clients range from 18 to 94.

What is the difference between eyebrow-shading and eyebrow-hairstrokes?

Eyebrow- shading is a technique where you are left with a brow pencil effect.

Eyebrow –hairstokes is a technique that fills in the gaps in the eyebrow. The results resemble natural brow hairs. This is a very popular treatment for those that don’t want solid shading.

What is the difference between eyeliner and lash-enhancement?
Eyeliner is a solid line which can be any thickness.

With the lash enhancement, pigment is inserted in tiny little dots between the lashes, thus giving the eyes definition, without creating a line. Ideal for those that like a none make up look, but still require definition. Some clients prefer a full line on the upper lid but just want enhancement of the lower lid to create a look of fuller lashes
