Bring A Distraction

Most artists won’t mind if you bring a book or look at your phone during your appointment. Just make sure your distraction is only distracting to you- that is, it should not be something that will interfere with the artist working, like a loud video game.

Getting Your First Tattoo

Stay Hydrated

Lastly, make sure to stay hydrated and bring small snacks to keep energy up throughout the process. Making sure you are properly fuelled will help manage discomfort and avoid dizziness. Absolutely do not come to your appointment hungover- you will not have a fun time if you do.

Permanent Makeup and Cosmetic Tattooing

Cosmetic tattoos can come in many forms. Permanent makeup, micro blading, and our specialty micropigmentation are all examples of cosmetic tattoos. The basic idea is that this kind of tattoo is done to improve a physical feature. Cosmetic tattoos aren’t generally art pieces. So, should you get one? Here’s what you need to know.

Permanent Makeup Is Done Differently Than Tattoos

With an artistic tattoo, your skin is pierced with an inked needle that creates a vacuum in the skin. This vacuum allows for the deposit of ink. With a cosmetic tattoo, a rotary device slices the skin to apply the pigment. This may sound scary, but in fact, most people report feeling less pain than with a regular tattoo.

Not All Cosmetic Tattoos Are Temporary

It’s called permanent makeup for a reason! While it’s true that cosmetic tattoos fade faster than artistic tattoos, this still takes awhile. In most cases, you will need to get a touchup every 1-3 years. Some forms of cosmetic tattooing are totally permanent.

Microneedling and Microblading Can Increase Confidence

A lot of people are insecure about their hairloss. Maybe you regret overplucking your eyebrows in the 90s. Maybe you simply don’t like the look of your receding hairline. Microneedling, which is the process of tattooing a pattern of dots to emulate the look of natural hair, can bring back that lost confidence. Microblading can similarly boost your look by mimicking the appearance of natural eyebrow hair strokes.

Cosmetic Tattoos Are Not Just Makeup

There are many cosmetic tattoo procedures that are not just makeup! Permanent eyeliner, lipliner, and microblading are probably the most popular and well-known cosmetic tattoos. However, cosmetic tattoing can also include stretch mark filling, faux freckles, and even areola reconstruction.
