How long does cosmetic tattoo or permanent makeup last?

It can last for up to 5 years. Lighter colours will fade quicker than the darker colours, and the good news is that you’re never stuck with a colour. It can always be modified, retouched or changed.

Does cosmetic tattooing hurt?

No, a topical anaesthetic is applied, so very little discomfort is experienced.

What tools are used?

An electric pen designed for cosmetic tattoo is used as it evenly distributes and implants the colour into the dermal layer of the skin. Our natural looking colours bring the best out of your features and result in a natural appearance, instead of the harsh traditional tattoo colours.

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 and varies per person. Cold packs can be applied straight after the treatment, to help reduce any swelling. Aftercare tips will be covered before your procedure.

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 come in with or without make up?

It’s best to come in without make up. You can draw on your own lipline or eyebrows before you come in so we can see what shape you like, or we 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?

No, 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. We have clients who range from 18 right through to their late 70s. Especially the elderly find it hard to apply make up, but still want to look good.

Do I have a choice of colour?

We have a range of colours that can easily be blended to the desired shade.

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.

What is the difference between eyeliner and lash-enhancement?

Eyeliner is a solid line which can be thickened. 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.
