Read some Frequently Asked Questions about Permanent Makeup.
Would you like to ditch the pencil and still have shape and definition? Choose hair stroke technique or a soft powder-fill.
Having your eyebrows subtly enhanced can help with hair loss issues due to aging, over-tweezing, alopecia or trichotillomania. Diminishing eyesight can also be a factor when determining if this service is right for you.
Wouldn’t it be nice to go to the beach, pool or gym and not have your eyeliner wash or sweat off?

Frequently Asked Questions
You may have researched and thought about permanent makeup for years or you may have just heard about the service and are curious to know more. Let’s start with the basics.
Is Permanent Makeup a tattoo?
Yes, like a traditional tattoo, during a permanent makeup procedure, pigment or ink is implanted in the dermis of the skin using machine needles or hand tools.
Is it really permanent?
We refer to it as “Permanent” as the color is implanted into the skin and cannot be washed off. However, fading over time does occur depending on skin type and lifestyle, so you will require periodic touch-ups (12-24 months depending on service) to maintain color.
Is it safe?
Safety is our number one concern. We use only sterile, single use, disposable needles and tools for all procedures. Rigorous sanitation and Blood Bourne Pathogen Standards are followed. Department of Health certified.
Does it hurt?
Your comfort is extremely important to us. Topical anesthetics are used before to numb and again, throughout the process. Most clients experience very minimal discomfort.
How long does it take?
Initial applications will take up to two hours for the entire process. Touch-ups are usually one hour to one hour and fifteen minutes.
