What is Cosmetic Tattooing and Who’s it for?

Cosmetic tattooing is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure. It involves tattooing specialised pigment into the upper layers of the skin. This procedure can be used to enhance the eyebrows, lips, eyes, scalp and more.

What is Eyebrow Tattooing?

Eyebrow tattooing has several methods such as microblading, hair stroke or “feather touch” all which use a small blade or fine needle to create a “hair-like” look. Ombré or powdered eyebrows are created with a tattoo machine and have a darker finish to look like brow makeup. We also offer a combination of both styles called 3D or Combo brows. Eyebrow tattooing last between 1-2 years, which allows for adjustment to shape, thickness and placement as our face changes with age.

What is Eyeliner Tattooing?

Eyeliner Tattooing is used to enhance the lash line and provide a waterproof option to replace regular eye makeup. A  semi-permanent pigment is used for this treatment so that adjustments can be made as our eyes change over time. These pigments are also specially designed and are safe for use on delicate/sensitive skin. Eyeliner tattoos may last for a few years before needing maintenance treatments.

What is Lip Tattooing?

Lip tattoo treatments can range from a lipstick shade to a soft rosy hue that restores natural fullness and shape to the lip line. It can be used to create a very subtle enhancement if the appropriate colour is selected.  This is a popular lip tattooing method usually called a full lip stain or lip blush tattoo. It may also last several years before needing maintenance treatments.
