Micro-pigmentation and semi-permanent makeup are both in regards to makeup tattoos. The process of micro-pigmentation, which is achieved by placing pigment beneath the surface of the skin is considered cosmetic tattooing. We use small, sterilized, disposable needles to recreate the look of hair, natural makeup, or to enhance our client’s features. We CANNOT guarantee results for anyone.
You must be 18 years or older with a valid form of identification.
Each cover up is taken case by case. An emailed photo is required or you must schedule a consultation.
Unfortunately, due to the services we provide, children under 14 are not allowed. Deposit will be forfeited and a new deposit will be required to rebook if not abided by.
We do not tattoo pregnant or nursing mothers.
Most clients describe the pain as “annoying”, and comparable to threading. We do use two very effective anesthetics and our goal is to keep our client comfortable. Keep in mind everyone’s pain tolerance is different.
Pigments are 100% safe & cruelty free. Our pigments have never been tested on animals and do not contain animal by-products.
During your appointment we will thoroughly discuss the treatments, expectations and post care. We will agree on a complimentary color, shape and density best suited for you. During the procedure, the best results are our goal. With that being said, microblading is an art on a canvas of skin. There is no guarantee of a specific outcome based on the variance of person to person. New appointments take roughly 1 1/2-2 hours and touchups between 1-1/2 hours.
Photos for inspiration are always welcomed with a shape and color preference. Coming in with your brows filled in how you normally wear them is also a good idea. If you are a regular waxer, shape/tint, or threader please do so 5 days prior to appointment.
Please avoid blood thinners (Asprin, Ibuprofen, fish oil, Vitamin E or Niacin) within 48 hours of your appointment. Alcoholic beverages should not be consumed 24 hours before due to possible excessive bleeding. Also avoid sun bathing, chemical peels and exfoliating 30 days before and after procedure.
-Choice of color (blonde fades quicker than brown)
-Any excessive bleeding during procedure reduces amount of pigment absorption
Your brows will begin oxidation and color will appear darker and bolder. Redness and swelling are possible, yet rare and normally subside within the hour. Cosmetic tattoos take 7-10 days to begin to heal. Makup must be avoided in the brow area. Please use soap and cream as instructed. Pigment will fade 30-40% and will soften as they heal.
They are considered semi-permanent, meaning they will not wash off. But due to natural exfoliation and turn over of skin cells they will fade overtime. Touch ups are standard and necessary for cosmetic work. Time varies person to person.
