Yesterday reminded me again how special relaxation techniques have a place in cosmetic tattoo.
My new client was at her wits’ end trying to be brave before starting her session. “what’s up Lucy (not her real name), you’re anxious” I said. Lucy explained in detail why she had waited 2 yrs before deciding for certain whether she would go ahead with permanent makeup. Imagine spending all that time fretting about what could happen. This was the perfect time to clear away all unuseful thoughts and fears. Soon Lucy was relaxing back into the massage table with the dreamiest look on her face.

With her eyebrows and eyelids already pleasantly numb as well, we wasted no time making beautiful eyebrows and eyes together!

Having worked with anxiety and trauma for many, many years, to witness apprehension change to excitement is just another reason why I just enjoy cosmetic tattooing so much!
