19 Apr Tattooed Makeup
Tattooed makeup, or cosmetic tattooing, is a fast-growing part of the health and beauty industry.
If you have faint eyebrows, no eyebrows, or partial eyebrows, a tattooed makeup can help. A lip tattoo can reduce “lipstick bleed,” and give definition to the lip line. With a coloured lip tattoo, lip scars disappear, plus you can kiss lipstick good-bye. After an eyeliner tattoo, you can put away your eye pencils for several years. Cosmetic tattooing also has more serious applications, such as improving the appearance of a nipple after breast reconstruction or an eyebrow after chemo or hair loss.

How Tattooed Makeup Is Done
The person applying permanent makeup uses a hand tool that penetrates your skin and releases pigment. The difference from a regular tattoo is that we use a hand tool (instead of one of those buzzing tattoo guns) and we don’t go as deep into your skin – meaning that the pain is pretty much non-existent.
Getting Tattooed Makeup
Before getting Tattooed makeup applied, you’ll get a patch test on your skin to check on whether you have an allergic reaction to the pigment that will be used – Feather Clinic offers free patch testing to anyone who requires it, our pigment however is natural and we have not encountered a patient who has had a reaction yet.
After that, you will choose the colour, based on advice and suggestions from the our therapist . The therapist will then use a sterile surgical pen to sketch the area to be tattooed and then put an aesthetic gel on your skin.
Using a fine tipped hand tool, the therapist will apply the pigment into the top layer of the skin. Each time the needle penetrates the skin, a droplet of pigment is released into the feathered line the needle makes. This is repeated in calculated strokes, across the surface.
After getting tattooed makeup, it takes about three weeks for the colour to fade to its permanent shade.
At first, the colour will likely look dark and shiny, and the surrounding tissue will be swollen and red.
You can use a cold compress to reduce swelling and antibiotic ointment to help prevent infection. Strict sun avoidance and use of sunscreens that block the entire ultraviolet light A and B spectrum for several weeks is important to prevent post-inflammatory colour changes.
Feather Clinic offers a free touch-up treatment to all full priced bookings in which we will apply additional pigment to areas of your skin that does not take to the pigment as well as it’s surrounds. This touch up ensures that you will then get 12-16 months of prefect brows!
