How often do I need to come in for touch-up after my first follow up?
Touch ups are recommended every 8-12 months, pigment is expected to fade over time as months/years go by. To keep the color fresh and strokes crispy, an annual color refresher is normally recommended. *Again, please note, results vary, as skin types are different as well as lifestyles, etc. It is normal to get a 2nd session to achieve desired fullness. This 2nd session is a "perfecting touch up" appointment. As everyone skins varies, this 2nd session allows us to access and study how well your skin reacted to the new tattoo.
What if I need to go to an event while I'm healing?
As recommended, you want to read and do research on the aftercare stages to plan your events/life accordingly. Please see an example above: You will heal for 4-6 weeks: Some heal faster than others. (I do not own these photos)
The basics to avoid during the healing process: IMPORTANT!!
No water- keep them dry. (You will be guided and be sent home with an aftercare kit with full instructions)
No heavy workouts, sweating, hot yoga, spa beds, tanning, etc.
No makeup on eyebrows.
Sun exposure, wear bigger shades/baseball cap if needed.
No alcohol intake 24 hours before and after.
No caffeine before the appointment.
No smoking moments before your appointment.
No steam shower 1-2 hours before your appointment.
No working out the moment before your appointment.
Hair appointments for 2 weeks.
No swimming, surfing, avoid water activities for the next couple of weeks.
Avoid making an appointment 2-3 weeks before your big events.
!! Healed results will vary by each client. Using a pencil or powder may still be needed for some clients. We have no control over what occurs during the healing process. Absolutely NO guarantees will be made. We don't recommend multiple touch ups within a year, one or two is typically all you need, again this varies by clients skin and how it absorbs your new tattoo.

Clear photos of your current eyebrows without makeup on them is required before proceeding with any appointments.

How long does permanent makeup lasts?
This varies by clients skin type, lifestyle, age, products used, etc. Sunlight exposure plays a big role in pigment fading, each individual absorbs the pigment different, a touch up / color refresher is recommended yearly. This is still SEMI- permanent, it is not meant to lasts forever like a traditional tattoo, this new technique is only implanted on the basal layer of the skin, a traditional tattoo implants 2x-3x deeper hence the long lasting results. It's recommended to choose a brow/lip/liner style to naturally compliment your face today, tomorrow, 5 years+

Is your studio handicap accessible?

What service will be good for me?
This varies by person to person, not every eyebrow will suit everyone’s face.
If you have oily skin or somewhat oily, powder shading will be best.
If you have more dry skin type, microblading or powder shading will do, it’s up to your personal preference.
If you like to wear makeup on your eyebrows everyday, powder shading will do. This gives you the powder finish look but also natural.
If you have dry skin with very little natural hair growth, powder shading will suit you best.
If you have dry skin, a lot of natural hair, but draw your brows more than 3x a week, powder shading is best.
If you have dry skin, but sweat easily or your lifestyle is outdoorsy, powder shading is best.
If you have previous tattoo work done, you must send clear photos of your current eyebrows to email@example.com prior to booking an appointment.
