What is semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing?
Semi-permanent Makeup can enhance your brows, eyes and lips with results that last, saving time on your daily beauty routine.
Is the treatment painful?
Most clients find the treatments virtually painless. Numbing cream is applied throughout to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
Do the results change for different types of skin?
Normal and dry skin types tend to hold the pigment best. Excessively oily skin can cause the tattooed hair strokes to blur together resulting in a more solid look rather than crisp hairstrokes. Ombre-powder brow technique is more suitable for this skin type.
Are semi-permanent cosmetic tattoos suitable for everyone?
Unfortunately, pre-existing skin conditions and skin treatments can heavily compromise the effectiveness of cosmetic tattooing. Before making an appointment at Covet Cosmetic Studio, please read the following information, so you can decide if this treatment is suitable for you.
How long will the cosmetic tattoo treatment take?
Feather touch brows and eyeliner tattooing appointments usually last around 2 hours but you may want to allow 2 hours 30 mins just to be safe.
Will my medication compromise my results?
Individuals who have been taking acne medications such as Roaccutane or Retin-A within the last year have an altered skin condition that will not heal well after the procedure. It's very important that you wait a year before tattooing the skin.
If you have an Autoimmune disease you may not be a good candidate for cosmetic tattooing due to compromised skin health.
Which payment methods do you accept?
Accepted payment methods - cash and Eftpos.
Do you do colours for blondes?
Yes I have a range of colours from blondes to brunette. I will mix the perfect tone to suit your natural hair & skin.
What should I avoid before my appointment?
Strictly no caffeine/alcohol/aspirins or any other form of painkillers 48 hours before your appointment. Please also inform us if you are taking any supplements, for example fish oil tablets, as these will affect how your treatment heals.
How long will it last?
This varies from person to person because skin type, diet, genetics and environmental factors can all contribute to how long the pigments will be retained.
How quickly will it heal?
Everyone is different but as a general rule the surface skin heals between 3-7 days after the treatment and 10-14 days below the surface. Many people will return to work the same day after a treatment, however, we don't advise driving after an eyeliner tattoo incase your eyes are a little swollen or watery immediately after the treatment.
Do my natural brows need to be shaved off?
Absolutely not. If you have natural brow hairs, Joanne will work with what you have, subtly integrating her work to suit your natural brow style.
