Our expertise is in the art of Micropigmentation.
What is Micropigmentation, you ask?
It's a fancy title for permanent or tattooed makeup.
Many people are interested in getting Micropigmentation, but they have either been misinformed or are just not quite sure what it entails.
Let's clear the air on a couple of common misconceptions about Micropigmentation.
Firstly, it doesn't hurt the way a standard tattoo hurts. This is because we use a high-grade and powerful topical numbing agent in the areas we work on, even on the eyelids! Our main goal is to keep you as comfortable as possible during this procedure, so any discomfort is quickly squashed from the get-go.
Our goal is to make your Permanent Makeup look as natural and complimentary to your features as possible. We DO NOT shave the eyebrow hair in order to do the procedure. We use natural hair strokes on the brows, no outlining, no pinstriping. It can last anywhere from 2 years to 20 years. It depends on many factors; such as: how well you take care of it, sun exposure, medications, chemicals used to make your skin look more youthful (peels, Retin-A's, Acids, etc)
We use a pigment scientifically formulated for cosmetic tattooing. It is very different from the standard tattoo inks which can sometimes fade to different colors. Many Cheap and inexperienced Artists use pigments from China and other regions, which contain heavy metals and colors which fade to salmon or blue. Don't let this happen to you. The pigments we use stay true to their color and they can be mixed to create a customized color that will accentuate your skin tone and hair color.
Be wary of Micropigmentation artists whom charge very little for their procedures. You get what you pay for, and when it comes to your face, you should never, ever short-change yourself. True, Professional Micropigmentation artsts use the most state-of-the-art equipment and supplies and spend a lot of money on advanced training. It's your face, and you have to live with it, so make sure you choose an artist who not only has some great portfolio pictures, but make sure the person has been trained properly, uses the utmost sanitary practices, has a good reputation, is certified and insured.
