WHAT TO EXPECT
The Initial Consultation
At the initial consultation, we discuss your requirements and simulate the shape and colour you want to achieve with your cosmetic tattooing. We will also discuss the colour of your own makeup, hair and your natural skin tone.
At the commencement of the procedure, a photograph is taken to begin your client file, and client indemnity form is required prior to the procedure. We create a makeup simulation for client approval in order to create the desired effect, by drawing on the exact shape of the area to be colored. This is used to guide us, providing the opportunity to ensure that the balance and symmetry is perfect and that you are happy with the final outcome you will have, on completion of your procedure.
A topical cream anaesthetic numbs the area before we begin, and the colour is then applied gently. More anaesthetic is then utilized during the procedure allowing us to ensure that the relevant area is numb during the procedure.
After The Procedure
After the procedure, we provide you with a client after care pack which includes after care instructions and bepanthen antiseptic cream. An after photo is taken prior to you leaving the salon as a record of your treatment. Four to eight weeks after the initial application, an all-inclusive perfecting follow-up procedure is required to top up the lines and colour of your new tattoo to guarantee the longevity of your tattoo.
