WHAT IS COSMETIC TATTOOING?

Cosmetic tattooing, also referred to as semi-permanent makeup, permanent cosmetics, or micropigmentation is the process of implanting color pigment beneath the surface of the skin with tiny, sterile, disposable needles to produce the appearance of hair strokes, makeup, or to enhance the natural features of the face. Healing results may vary by client.​​

DOES COSMETIC TATTOOING HURT?

We use numbing prior and throughout to ensure minimal discomfort. We cannot guarantee as everyone has different reaction to numbing and different threshold to pain. Menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure, please schedule accordingly. DO NOT take any painkillers prior to procedure.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?

Two treatments are usually needed, at least 6-8 weeks apart. Sometimes just one treatment is sufficient, but a touch-up appointment is offered complimentary if needed.

 

HOW WILL MY COSMETIC TATTOO LOOK?

With most procedures, the color looks dramatically lighter after the first week. Some clients prefer this, while others prefer a bolder look. At the "perfection session", we will assess the color retention and make adjustments as necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your cosmetic tattoo does not heal perfectly the first time, do not worry! We can always go darker and add more density at your next appointment.


WILL MY SKIN TYPE AFFECT MY COSMETIC TATTOO RESULTS?

Yes, healed results vary by client and RESULTS CANNOT BE GUARANTEED. This is why different techniques are chosen based on client's skin type. For example, Microblading is NOT recommended for oily skin so we might suggest Ombre powder or Microshading (Combo) instead.

WHAT ELSE WILL AFFECT MY COSMETIC TATTOO?

Sun exposure. Once healed, please wear SPF to protect your enhancement. Bleeding during the procedure will equal to poor color retention so it is important to follow all PRE/AFTERCARE before and after your appointment. Incorrect aftercare: sweating, immediate sun exposure, picking at scabs will all result in poor healing results. If you are iron deficient/anemic, your pigment may fade faster, and bleeding/bruising may occur. 

WHEN CAN I GET BOTOX OR FILLERS?

You can get Botox & fillers 4 weeks prior to your appointment or 4 weeks after your appointment.

 

CAN I GET COSMETIC TATTOOING DONE IF I HAVE ALLERGIES?

 If you have any allergies, please check with us PRIOR to booking an appointment. We will provide you a list of ingredients of all products used.
