Will I get to have a say in the colour and shape?

Absolutely!! After cleaning the skin I apply swatches of pigment on the forehead, this way we can see how the colours sit on the clients skin and match their hair, they are then handed a mirror and help me decide on a colour. After a discussion with the client about how they would like their brows to look I map the brows to create the shape, I then get the client to look and give me their feedback, I can then change things to their liking if needed and perfect the final shape.

What does powder, feather and nano mean?

Powder is shading done with a tattoo machine designed for cosmetic tattooing, the machine is run at a low voltage to produce soft, stippled shading, or lots of little dots, rather than a solid block of colour, this effect creates a more natural look. Feather (also called nano) strokes are very fine strokes done with the tattoo machine to look like a brow hair and blend in with your natural hair. 

What is the difference between feather strokes and microblading?

Feather and nano strokes are done with a special cosmetic tattoo machine while microblading is done with a hand tool with a “blade” on the end, the technician makes tiny slices using the hand tool and then rubs pigment in to the cuts, the result is super crisp and neat hair strokes that differ to the fluffier, softer strokes produced by using a machine. Microblading can look amazing when done right, however there is a risk of the technician going too deep and causing scarring and a more permanent tattoo that will end up turning a blue grey colour. Therefore it is imperative to choose a highly skilled technician when opting for microbalding. I do not offer microblading but can refer you to a great artist if you are wanting this done.

Does it hurt?

Everyone’s pain tolerance is different however most people describe eyebrow tattooing mildly annoying and completely tolerable, some clients have fallen asleep during the procedure! Cosmetic tattooists use a machine with micro to nano needles with a super light touch to deposit the pigment just beneath the delicate surface of the skin.

Can I use numbing cream?

If you are at all worried about the pain we can use numbing cream to ensure you don’t feel a thing. Please contact us at least one week prior to your appointment to arrange your numbing cream as this will require a script from a doctor.

What is the ‘perfection visit’?

A perfection visit is required after 4-6 weeks to fill in any areas that may have fallen out during the healing process and to darken the tattoo. Because your tattoo is very superficial, some amount of pigment loss during healing is completely normal, how much is lost depends on how well your tattoo heals. Therefore it is important to diligently follow your aftercare instructions. Some clients may require an additional third visit due to their skin type or how well they follow their aftercare, this visit will be at an additional cost.

How long will my tattoo last and how often will I need a colour refresh? 

This depends on your skin type and how well you care for your healed tattoo, your tattoo should last 1 – 3 years. Most people love their cosmetic tattoos and get their colour refreshed every 12 to 18 months to keep them looking fresh and sharp
