Back home on 11th February
We’re are off to the freezing cold UK for 2 weeks, and will be back on 11th February. Singapore on the way is always a delight, I just love Singapore, the people, the airport, everything!
Just a quick word though, as I will be thoroughly looking forward to seeing you when we get back. Many of you are coming in for corrective work from other lands and other clinics around. It is disturbing, and in a few cases I have asked that you have some good laser done so I may start afresh. On a new canvas so to speak. If you want advice on where to go for this wonderful work, do let me know.
Semi-permanent makeup, or makeup tattoo is a highly specialised art so be aware that a proficient operator needs to have at least 2,000 hours or 5yrs experience just to start with. One can learn the theory of most subjects in a short time but it takes thousands of hours to understand. Look at how long an operator has been dedicated in his/her art of cosmetic tattoo and in the field specialised within that.
One should feel excited and confident to have cosmetic tattoo done. Ask to see further work available so you may feel sure. Make sure your consultation at the beginning of any session, answers your questions in a way you understand. Sometimes clients do have enormous expectations, especially when previous work elsewhere has not given good results through lack of experience or other. Unfortunately your cosmetic tattooist may have a load dropped on her in a sense, and is quite courageous and caring to carry on steadily to correct the inadequate work you may be angry about. My best clients are the ones, who can miraculously drop their past disappointment at the door and let me get down to what I know well.
I may be able to camouflage, redesign and release colour from previous work. It can take time and several sessions but the reward is lovely work. Come for a consultation over this.
Refreshers are absolutely essential. I like to tell my clients to see me “this time next year”. The very best results of ongoing cosmetic tattoo require attention every year to 18 months. You would give yourself that attention to others parts of you! Cosmetic tattoo is amazing, when done well.
I’m looking forward to seeing you soon,
have a super-duper warm February.
