Exfoliation and retinol product.

EYELINER CLIENTS: 

Please stop using eyelash enhancing serums (LaTisse, Lash Boost, etc...) at least 6 weeks prior to your eyeliner procedure!  

I can NOT tattoo over eyelash extensions!  Please have all extensions removed at least one week prior to your eyeliner tattoo procedure. if you show up with eyelash extensions, you will be turned away and charge a 50% late cancellation fee. 

 

BROW CLIENTS:

Brow waxing/shaping (if desired) should be done at least 2 days in advance

Brow tinting (if desired) should be done 1 week in advance)

LIP CLIENTS:

Make sure that your lips are healthy and have been exfoliated, and are NOT dry or chapped.  If they are in bad shape, they cannot be tattooed. 

If you have ever had a cold sire in your life, make sure to begin taking preventative medication at least three days prior to your appointment to prevent an outbreak.

All pigmentation clients must avoid sun/tanning bed exposure for 30 days before their procedure!

As the skin exfoliates from a tan or sunburn, it will take the tattoo pigment with it. 

If you arrive with signs of sun over-exposure, (aka: sunburn) we will unfortunately have to reschedule your appointment and you will be charged the 50% late cancellation fee. 

APPOINTMENT DAY
On your appointment day, we ask that you come prepared to be as relaxed as possible for the duration of your cosmetic tattoo. Make sure to hydrate, and eat a light snack 20 to 30 minutes before arriving. 

Avoid caffeine!  If you are hooked on that morning coffee, it's best that you schedule an early appointment!

Wear relaxed clothing that you can sit and lay down in for an extended period of time

Use the restroom before entering the studio (located right across the hall)

 

IF YOU ARE SICK - PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR SICKNESS TO US!  Please cancel your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you are not feeling well. 

 

NO-NOs: Absolutely NO children, pets, eating, drinking and/or gum chewing are permitted in the studio during your appointment time.   Talking/texting on cell phones is not permitted at all once your procedure has been started. We kindly ask that you please silence or shut off your cell phone before your procedure begins.

WHAT TO EXPECT UPON ARRIVAL:

Consultation & Tattoo Design: 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: Prior to the consultation & procedure, a topical anesthetic is applied. We also layer an additional numbing agent during the tattooing to increase your comfort. 

Pigmentation Process: 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.
