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

Gym, Swim, and still looking good…

It’s fabulous when your clients are business-women, students and people who know why they have come in to  have semi-permanent make-up. It’s really special though when you’re client is a hard working young woman, getting a career together and is also raising one or more toddlers at the same time. My client phoned me estatic with the idea of having full cosmetically tattooed eyeliner done to save her precious time (something she has precious little of) and the logical plan of having makeup that won’t sweat off.  This was an especially good plan as she is in the fitness industry.

A lot of women come my way who are trainers, or who spend a fair amount of time at the gym. If you do like to look astonishing good (I know a few who do!) after training, do consider semi-permanent makeup for brows, and eyeliner. These girls, and men have often done a big workout and afterwards like to join each other for a catch up. Tattoo makeup works well with cyclists and any competitors of any sport. Imagine if your day to day work involves being submerged in water a lot of the time like one of my clients. Makeup tattoo can be downright essential here. Teachers also love tattooed makeup – their students are often thoughtful as to why their teacher looks the same at the end of the day. Of course, I like this most – when they tell me that their friends, colleagues or students ask them later why the make-up is still on.

Back to the fitness freak, come amazing mum. The eyes were sensitive, but we have the latest in numbing creams and gels, plus knowing why for sure, she was here and that it was something on the ‘want’  list for a long time  made the first and and next session very OK (you can have numbing injections for lips).  After the cold pack was applied and a rest time of ten minutes, my client was ready to go. Some swelling was present afterwards I was told, which subsided a few hours later. A text then came to say she was thrilled and ready for more.

To clarify this. In most situations there is little or no swell. There are always exceptions. Lips do swell, and subside usually in a day or two. If swelling is uncomfortable however, a cool pack  is most often the answer, and if  in doubt do not hesitate to contact Janey.

Cheers and Happy February..

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.
