It is also known as micropigmentation, colour implants, permanent makeup, feather touch, microblading, soft tap, eyebrow embroidery , semi-permanent makeup and much more.

These treatments have been around for centuries in other parts of the world such as the Middle East and Asia and has been growing more popular in the Western World for the last 30 years.

Permanent make-up

I find black lasts a lot longer than the lighter colours and everyone heals differently so lasting time varies greatly from person to person. I personally recommend my clients return every 12 months (if needed) for a touch at a reduced price.
Imagine waking up in the morning already looking fresh faced. Or going for a swim or working out and not having to worry about your eyebrows washing off or eye liner running. This might sound funny to some people but for those of you who (like me) have to draw or fill in your brows every morning you know exactly what i mean!

These procedures have even been recommended by doctors for alopecia patients, cancer patients and people with poor eye sight or who have allergic reactions to everyday makeup.



Yes, it is very similar to a “normal tattoo”, we are still piercing the skin and implanting ink to form a design. The difference is the type of machine we use, how deep the needle is inserted into the skin and also the pigment and colours we use.
The pigment we use for cosmetic tattoos is different to those used by a normal tattoo artist. Those inks are way too bright for the face. Most of the pigments used by cosmetic tattooists are Iron Oxide a safe product especially made for implanting into human skin. Our pigments are made to fade. Some people may think they don’t want their cosmetic tattoo to fade, but trust me YOU DO! Many years ago the pigments didn’t fade like they do now, this is why you sometimes see older ladies with tattooed eyebrows and eyeliner that looks like its in the wrong spot, or its the wrong colour. Ive seen purple green and red eyebrows that have dropped with the sagging of the skin.

The pigments fade these days which means we can slightly move and change the colour and design every time we touch it up.

A regular tattoo artist uses a machine that is a lot more powerful than the pen style machine that we use on the face. It is very intricate and is a work of art just like a body tattoo. Cosmetic Tattoo artists must be properly trained by reputable organisation and have a great understanding of the facial structure and skin. They must have experience in makeup application and fully understand colour and how to mix the perfect shade for every skin tone.
