Cosmetic Tattooing

 Enhance, define, restore


What is Cosmetic Tattooing?

Micropigmentation is a safe, semi-permanent cosmetic makeup for eyebrows, eye-lining, lip-lining and full lip creation. Using tattoo methods to insert natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin.


Micropigmentation is fast becoming a very popular treatment within the cosmetic industry because it allows busy people to look great 24 hours a day.


Why would I have it done?

If you have no eyebrows, or partial eyebrows, a cosmetic tattoo can help. A lip tattoo can reduce "lipstick bleed," and give definition to the lip line. Eyeliner will enhance the shape of the eyes and give the appearance of more eyelashes.


Add beautiful shape and lift to your brows


Define sparse or over-plucked brows – no more brow pencil

Create a natural look which frames the face and adds a youthful look

Restore the appearance of softer looking brows with hair stroke techniques


Contact lenses wearer’s, physically (e.g. Arthritis) or visually impaired and alopecia sufferers love permanent makeup. Pigment can be implanted to give the appearance of brow shape and eyelashes.

Cosmetic enhancement is popular with all ages.


How long does it last?

The pigment can then be expected to last anywhere from one to three years depending on procedure, pigment colour used and the individual. Gradual fading will occur during this period.


As ageing is a continual process, which means natural lightening of the skin and hair, the fading of the pigment gives the opportunity to change pigment colour with each re-touch.


Is it painful?

To keep discomfort to a minimum, anaesthetic creams are used before and during the procedure. The discomfort of the procedure varies from one person to another. Some discomfort is to be expected.


What can I expect to feel afterwards?

There will be temporary swelling and redness in the area. The colour will appear dark and exact for 7-10 days. A slight crusting formation or flaking can also occur during this time. We recommend if you are having an eyeliner treatment to bring sunglasses with you.


You will receive a full aftercare sheet after your treatment.
