Is it Permanent?
Technically, a cosmetic tattoo is considered permanent as it involves the implantation of micro-pigmentation into the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. Depending upon your lifestyle and sun exposure, a touch up may be required after several years to intensify the colour.
Does it hurt?
This is greatly minimised by using various topical anaesthetics and varies depending upon the area being tattooed. Clients say it’s like mild eyebrow plucking only.
Is it safe?
Micropigmentation is an invasive procedure and strict hygiene standards are applied in the working environment. Sterile equipment and disposable accessories are used for each client.
How long does the procedure take?
The initial procedure takes approximately 1-2 hours, including preparation, with a follow up 6-8 weeks later, requiring less time.
What is involved in recovery?
In some cases there may be slight swelling and redness of skin that will subside quickly. You may resume normal activities following the procedure. The natural healing process requires at least 2 weeks before the amazing results are fully seen.
How do I select a practitioner?
DON’T choose a practitioner based on price alone. Base your decision on their competence, professionalism and honesty. Remember that it is your face that they will be cosmetic tattooing and it may be permanent.
