Permanent make-up, cosmetic tattooing or micropigmentation, is becoming increasingly popular in the beauty industry.
If you have faint eyebrows, no eyebrows or partial eyebrows, a cosmetic tattoo can help. A lip tattoo can give definition to the lip line. With a coloured lip tattoo, lip scars disappear and you do not need to wear lipstick. Similarly, with an eyeliner tattoo, you need never use an eye pencil again.
Cosmetic tattooing also has more serious applications. For example, it can be used to improve the appearance of a nipple after breast reconstruction.
What to expect
A patch test is done to find out if you are likely to have an allergic reaction to the pigment that will be used. You choose the colours you want. The tattooist then sketches the area to be tattooed so we can check with you that you are happy before we start work.
Who's a candidate for Cosmetic Tattoos?
Anyone (male or female) can have it done.
Do you want to improve the appearance of thin eyebrows or lips? Do you have an uneven hairline or allergies to make-up that create a problem? Cosmetic tattoos may be a viable solution. It's not going to provide a perfect world, but it can help enhance certain features.
