COSMETIC TATTOO QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

WHAT IS COSMETIC TATTOOING?

Also known as permanent makeup or micro-pigmentation, is a procedure involving the implantation of colour pigments into the area just directly beneath the skins surface to achieve natural looking enhancements to a client's facial features such as eyebrows, lips and eyelids (even adding freckles or beauty spots) through the use of extremely fine, sterile and disposable needles.

Eye Art Studio offer the following Cosmetic Tattoo services


WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

Both are different names for the same technique, which is also know as eyebrow feathering, featherstroke, feathertouch or eyebrow embroidery.

Eyebrow Microblading is hand-based method of cosmetic tattooing where tiny, fine, natural looking little hair strokes are created - with a handheld pen and a needle containing multiple micro-blades - within the eyebrow areas to perfectly blend in with your natural eyebrow hair. It is also suitable for clients with little to no hair.


WHAT IS OMBRE' EYEBROW TATTOO?

A method of eyebrow tattooing that adopts the pixelated shading / powdering method. It delivers a gradient eyebrow effect that is lighter at the bulb of an eyebrow, which becomes more saturated towards the tail end. Ombre' eyebrow tattooing is a popular option for makeup lovers as it has a powdery, lightly pixelated, penciled-in finish.


WHAT IS COMBINATION EYEBROW TATTOO?

A method of eyebrow tattooing combing both the eyebrow microblading and shading methods.

In this technique, eyebrow hairstrokes are microbladed to the bulb of the brow, with shading strategically adopted from the brow's belly section, graduating to a more defined tail. This eyebrow tattoo method is highly recommended for oily or acne prone skin types, clients who are often active and sweat often. It is another popular eyebrow choice favoured by makeup lovers!

An eyebrow tattoo treatment takes approximately 2 hours from consultation to finish. Each eyebrow tattoo treatment consists of 2 steps, the initial treatment session and a second called the touch up session, where we further perfect your new eyebrows at 4-8 weeks later. The touch up session takes approximately 1 to 1.5 hours.

Eyebrow Microblading tattoo can last up to 2 years (and more in some cases), fading gradually to a lighter color. The longevity of the eyebrow tattoo depends on many factors, such as the client's skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure, medication, skincare products and even hormones. As every client's skin is unique, we can not guarantee the same result for every client. By following aftercare, you can enjoy a better healed result for longer.

The complete healing process for cosmetic tattoo produces takes between 4-8 weeks, this is when your new - be it eyebrow tattoo, eyeliner tattoo, lip tattoo or freckle tattoo- would have "settled" in both shape and colour. Our aftercare guide must be followed to achieve best results. Not following aftercare guide resulting poor retention may require additional touch ups, and additional fees applied.


WHAT WILL MY EYEBROW TATTOO LOOK LIKE?

Right after a procedure, your new eyebrow tattoo will look darker and more prominent than the final healed result. The darker color and thicker shape will settle in a couple of days as the pigment lightens, and swelling (slight, if any) goes down through the healing process. Some clients may experience minimum redness temporarily (up to an hour), while others won't.
