WHAT TO EXPECT UPON ARRIVAL:
Consultation & Tattoo Design: (30 min) This is the opportunity to meet with your artist and create a plan for your tattoo. Please bring your new client forms, along with any photos of tattoo examples that are similar to the look you’re hoping for. Your artist will work with you to design a custom cosmetic tattoo that will highlight your natural features. From there, your artist will choose a pigment match based on your skin tone and hair color. We’ll also discuss aftercare and healing during this time.
Numbing: (30 min) Prior to the consultation & procedure, a topical anesthetic (5% lidocaine ointment) is applied. We also layer an additional numbing agent during the tattooing to increase your comfort.
Pigmentation Process: (Duration depends on service) Your artist will carefully implant pigment to mimic the appearance of natural hair, eyeliner, lip color or skin colors desired. This usually takes anywhere from 1-3 hours, and often requires more than one visit to achieve the desired fully healed results.
