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

Design is everything (nearly)…

Design is what takes the time in cosmetic tattoo.  It is such an immaculate business,  and rightly so – after all you and everyone else are looking at your face at least some time every day.  All faces are so unique!  You need not have beauty in the classic sense,  to be wonderfully interesting and gorgeous.  It does help though to have well maintained and well designed features to draw focus in a positive way to help others connect with you.

Your cosmetic tattooist needs to have an excellent eye for what design is just right for you.  At the same time,  your cosmetic tattooist needs to have empathy in how you want to be seen to the world.  One’s self esteem is easily shaken,  so good design,  shape and colour is everything.  Having said that,  it is also handy that you have good expectations but not unreasonable expectations.  That’s difficult sometimes,  but it can be distracting for you both,  and may hinder ‘the flow’,  so to speak.  Be clear in what you think you want, and if you don’t have a clue,  your cosmetic tattooist should be well able to demonstrate her skill and experience to you.

All of the above apply to semi-permanent tattooed eyes,  and lips as well (smile).

Remember, you most likely see your permanent cosmetic artist with uneven, shapeless or sparse brows. So ask your artist to brush your new brow shape on first and be wary if she/he does not spend adequate time in doing this. Do make sure you ask the questions you want to ask and do not feel in the slightest way uncomfortable over this. Ask what the hair-stroke tattoo looks like, if that is what you might be after. Ask your artist to do one or two strokes initially for you to see.  For certain, when you see how these look and feel, your confidence goes up several notches.  If you have a cosmetic tattoo artist who loves what she/he does, this will not be an issue.

Be aware that brows are cosmetically tattooed, for your convenience, and should be as symmetrical as reasonably possible.  It is usual to have two very different sides to the face and to have brows cosmetically tattooed as they naturally sit on the face, could be devastating.

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.
