Cosmetic tattooing/Permanent Make Up techniques have been used to enhance and correct facial and body features for centuries in the east and decades in the west. Techniques have since been developed to create natural results with minimum complications. Cosmetic tattooing can be used to enhance, correct, camouflage and re-shape features to help you look your possible best.
At Designer Brows we use both manual and machine methods - machine procedures involve an electrical tattoo pen which automatically and rapidly inserts dye in to the skin using needles. However microbalding or 'feather' is manually done drawing hairstokes individually into the brow to simulate hair. Both methods can be done to achieve a soft and subtle look, or we can make them more defined depending on your features and preferences.
Pigments (Inks/dyes) have also come a long way in cosmetic tattooing, they tend to be more sympathetic to the skin and facial tones and fade without much discoloration.
Contrary to popular belief, cosmetic tattooing is a permanent procedure. It is a common misconception that it is a semi-permanent procedure. Cosmetic tattoos tend to fade more and quicker than body tattoos, this is due to the fact that they are inserted at different depths, more subtle tones are used and they are located on the face, which is constantly exposed to the harsh environment. Because they will fade and touch-ups will be required (if even every five years) people tend to call them semi-permanent.

Eyebrows define our expressions as well as our personalities. Most of us have unsymmetrical eyebrows which dispositions your face.
