FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who is not suitable for Cosmetic Tattooing?
Currently pregnant or breastfeeding
Anyone under 18
Had facial surgery in the past 3 months
Is it painful?
A topical anaesthetic is applied before and throughout the procedures as our clients comfort is of utmost importance.
How long does the appointment take?
I have previous cosmetic tattooing - can I still book an appointment?
Please contact via facebook or text message with a picture of the area prior to booking as some previous tattoos are not able to be corrected therefore may need laser treatment prior to enhancing.
How long does cosmetic tattooing last?
Depending on the area, cosmetic tattooing will generally last 1-3 years without the need of a touch up, in saying that every persons skin holds the pigment differently. Some clients find that it lasts up to five years, these are usually clients who have darker complexions therefore darker pigments have been used.
Do I need to wax/thread my eyebrows prior to the appointment? Or can you shape them for me?
That is entirely up to you. If you know what shape you like your eyebrows then feel free to have your brows shaped prior to the appointment. However if you aren’t really sure what shape would suit you best then I am more than happy to shape them for you during our consultation as we are designing your brows.
How do you design the Brows that are tattooed? Can I come with my Brows already drawn on?
The Brow design is done collaboratively between you and I. To begin I will go ahead and create brows with pencil to suit your face using facial measurements. From there we then work together until we have a final design that both suits your face and that you like. However if you know exactly how you like your Brows and are experienced with filling them in, please feel free to come with them draw them on.
What are the pigments made from and are they safe?
All pigments used are excellent quality and highly safe. Most pigments are Iron Oxide and Titanium Dioxide based, a safe non-reactive substance and suspended in distilled water, alcohol and glycerine. The pigments are specifically designed for implantation into human skin.
What colours can I choose from?
A large selection of colours is available from very light through to almost black which can be mixed and customised to achieve the best colour to suit your skin tone, eyes and hair colour.
What can I expect immediately after the procedure?
Clients must be aware that immediately after the procedure the colour will be darker then the desired result. This is because the pigment takes around 7 days to enter the deeper layers of the skin. After 7 days exfoliation of the top layer of the skin will occur, leaving a softer colour below. The result will be a soft, natural enhancement. It is very important to follow after care instructions & apply the aftercare balm to the treated area for 7-10 days following your treatment. During the healing process itching may occur which is completely normal.
