What is cosmetic tattooing?
Cosmetic tattooing, also referred to as semi-permanent makeup or micropigmentation, is the process of implanting color pigment beneath the surface of the skin by means of tiny, sterile, disposable needles to produce the appearance of hair strokes, makeup, or to enhance the natural features of the face.
What is the difference between cosmetic tattooing and traditional tattooing?
Cosmetic tattooing is softer and more subtle – it is meant to be a natural-looking enhancement while using pigments that are designed to gently fade over time.
How will my cosmetic tattoo look in the future?
During your appointment, we will analyze your skin's undertone to anticipate how pigment colors will fade as the majority of our clients' cosmetic tattoos stay true to color and lighten naturally over time. Your eyebrow tattoo will eventually look softer and have more of a "powdered" look over time. To keep your hair strokes looking good, a refresher appointment is suggested every 1 to 2 years. Results vary with each client.
How many treatments will I need?
For most clients, a minimum of two treatments are usually needed, at least 6 - 8 weeks apart. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. Previously tattooed areas and cover-ups will almost always require additional touch-ups for best results and will be charged accordingly.
