How Is An Eyeliner Tattoo?

Cosmetic Eyeliner Tattoo is a method of enhancing and accentuating the shape, colour and size of your eyes. It is a convenient and long lasting option for anyone with allergies, contact lens sensitivity, dexterity issues, vision problems or an active lifestyle who is looking for a permanent makeup solution.

How Permanent is it?

It will highly depend on how light or deep of a pressure the technician implants the. Going too deep may push pigment further into the skin or even cause long time damage. Going too light will result in higher loss of color retention and changes pigment does not deposit at all. Generally we advise clients anywhere from  1 year to 3 years.



What is Manual Shading?

Also known as the Soft Tap Method, this technique uses a hand held device compacted with a bunch of single needles that implants pigment using a rhythmic rolling motion creating a shadow like subtle shading of the eyebrow.

What Types Of Eyeliner Tattoos Are Available?

Lash Line Enhancement

For a subtle, ‘barely there’ look, a Cosmetic Tattoo Lash Line Enhancement will discreetly define and frame your eyes.  Tiny dots of colour are implanted between the lashes creating fuller, thicker, lovelier-looking lashes. A Cosmetic Tattoo Lash Line Enhancement rejuvenates the eye area without the noticeable effect of make-up, for a strikingly natural, fuller-lash appearance.

Eyeliner Tattoo Enhancement

For a more defined eyeliner, an Eyeliner Tattoo will enhance the colour, size and shape of your eyes. Colouring is applied through the lashes as in the Lash Line Enhancement, and an Eyeliner Tattoo line of your desired weight or thickness (up to medium weight), is beautifully drawn adjacent to the lash line.

Thick Eyeliner Tattoo Enhancement

For a bolder and more dramatic statement you may desire a thick Eyeliner Tattoo Enhancement. Colouring is applied through the lashes as in the Lash Line Enhancement, and a more dramatic, thick Eyeliner Tattoo line is created, and finished with a wedge-shaped or winged tail. Alternatively consider a smoulderingly seductive Smokey Eye Liner, which also may be finished with a winged tail. 

How Does The Procedure Work?

The outside of the eyes are numbed with a topical numbing cream. The pigment is deposited into the epidermis of the skin with an electric, tiny pen-like device. The treatment takes around 2-2.5 hours.

Who Is A Good Candidate?

A good candidate is someone who wears eyeliner every day and wants a more convenient and less time-consuming method.

When Will I See Results And Return To A Regular Routine?

You will be able to see results right away! Swelling may last 2-4 days post procedure, but you can return to everyday activities right away. It is advisable to avoid heat, excessive sweating or rubbing the eyes for the first 48-72 hours after the treatment.
