About cosmetic tattoo services, news and advances in the world of permanent makeup

what's so important about relaxation?

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!

    Janey s relaxation techniques are amazing! Usually when you have a procedure of any type you are left to deal with how u feel & how u cope yourself. Not with Janey, she takes the time with you to cover this side of things as well. Takes away any anxiety & makes u feel confident & relaxed.

    Good morning Janey, I was given your number by a lady who had her lips and brows done by you. They looked great! I have lips that look pale and dry without lipstick – could I just use a gloss if i got them ‘coloured’ as well as outlined. Do pale lips color well if they are a bit patchy (the outline is ok but the fatty bits often look white-ish?) And you refer to relaxation with it – can you tell me more about that please? (not that I get nervous!….)

      Hello Suzie,

      Ah, you may be the perfect candidate for cosmetic tattoo! After the process is completed and to maintain a soft dewy look, gloss or balm best suited to you, is essential.

      What the permanent make up artist can do, is give you the colour you have lost in the lips, (and some more!) including the lip line. However, to keep the ‘lipstick look’ you need to apply a moisturiser of some type. This also keeps the lips protected and comfortable just as you would without any colour implantation. Having said all that, the idea of permanent makeup is to be in any situation, anywhere, and have colour stay on your skin.

      Any pale or whitish areas are ‘coloured in’ semi-permanently too to give uniformity to the mouth.

      If you like Suzie, have a look at http://www.changeyourweather.info to read about the relaxation methods used. These can give an enormous change in thinking and feeling. There is no need to be nervous or anxious over such a wonderful decision.

Cosmetic tattoo known as Permanent Makeup or more accurately Semi-Permanent makeup, Micro-pigmentation and Colour Implantation is the process of implanting natural iron oxide or titanium dioxide pigments or and natural vegetable pigments into the dermal (middle) layer of the skin.

Cosmetic Tattoo is a long lasting beauty treatment which is effective for up to 8 years and often a lot longer depending on the individual.

At Gentle Cosmetic Tattoo there are new and exciting shades of pigments available, although stunning pure black still seems to be a favourite for eyes. We service all parts of the Gold Coast, Brisbane and in between.
