Can I get a tattoo if I'm pregnant?
No, you should not get a cosmetic or paramedical tattoo when you are pregnant, even when breastfeeding.
What is the difference between Microneedling and Micropigmentation?
Microneedling does not have any pigment being deposited into the skin, and is not a camouflage procedure, rather a softening treatment that helps the natural skin heal and regenerate without the need for pigment. Some treatment plans require Microneedling first and then micropigmentation is done at future appointments.
Can I get a tattoo with a new artist if I've previously went elsewhere?
Absolutely, we will require a consultation to discuss treatment options.
STEP 1: Book your Free Consultation
STEP 2: Your initial appointment
- 2.5 Hours $300
STEP 3: TOUCH-UP appointment
The touch up that takes approximately 2 . Touch ups are done no earlier than 6 weeks of your initial procedure and no later than 10 weeks. It is IMPERATIVE you complete the touch up treatment. Without it, the results will not be optimal. Color will fade significantly within 4 weeks as the skin heals, peels and fades. The touch up corrects any irregularities in the hair strokes, color tones and finishes the process.
NOTE: YOU MUST COMPLETE ALL SESSIONS! Occasionally a third touch up (6-10 weeks later) is necessary for certain clients where the pigment does not take as well to the skin ($200). For clients that choose a softer look and lighter colour shade initially or those who did not follow the after care instructions properly may require more frequent touch ups.
How is eyebrow shaping determined?
Our artists will work with your face shape and personal preference to create a customized shape for you that compliments your natural features. Dots will be used to outline the shape, you will be involved with pigment matching & shaping. Please remember that brow trends change, we focus on natural looking brows.
I had bad brow done, can you help?
Absolutely, our artists are trained in corrections as well as tattoo removals, we will be happy to discuss at your consultation. Depending on saturation, multiple sessions may be needed.
How painful is the procedure and do you see numbing?
Pain levels will vary based on procedure and personal tolerance, we use numbing products to reduce pain levels.
What can I expect with brow tattoing?
You can expect a 2 step process, usually 6-10 weeks apart. It is important to complete both the initial procedure and touch up.
Cosmetic Tattooing is commonly said to be semi-permanent and can last between 1-3 years. The pigment will begin to fade within 12 months. In order to keep your brows looking fresh, a touch up is recommended every 12 months to 24 months maximum. That being said we consider it permanent because the pigment is implanted into the upper dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, the pigment is implanted more superficially than a traditional tattoo, so it naturally fades over time. After 2 years, full price for Cosmetic Tattooing will apply.
How long can I expect the tattoo to last?
Why does my tattoo not last as longer as others?
Factors that will cause your brow tattoo to fade faster:
• Iron deficiency
• Sun exposure
• Strong immune systems
• Exposure to salt water
How to get started...
During this time, a consultation is done where we discuss your desired brow look, choose a color tone and discuss your medical history to ensure you are a candidate for tattooing services, we will discuss the service it self, what to expect, healing process aka the Brow Rollercoaster... it's real. Aftercare, maintenance, and answer any questions you may have.
We will map out and customize your perfect brow shape. We explain to our clients though our faces are NOT perfectly symmetrical (one brow is usually flatter than the other), we do our very best to create as much symmetry as possible! As we like to say BROWS ARE SISTERS, NOT TWINS. Once you are satisfied with the basic shape and symmetry, the area is then traced over and semi-permanent pigment is applied with a specific to your brow service disposable needle formation.
Can I drink before my tattoo?
No. This is not advisable for many reasons, other then then obvious difficulties of tattooing a drunk person, aka if you arrive at your tattoo appointment drunk or consumed alcohol within 24 hours the artist will refuse to tattoo you. The main reason is that alcohol thins your blood considerably. In turn this causes excessive bleeding while you are having the tattoo, which not only makes it difficult for the artist, but will have the effect of 'washing out' the ink as it is being placed. This makes the process much longer and can produce poor results.
Avoid alcohol at least 24 hours prior to your appointments.
