Already we’re into May where in this part of the world it’s getting just a little chilly at night with glorious days of sun.

Mother’s Day is only around the corner. Any mum will love a semi-permanent mother’s day pampering!

A mention here that cosmetically tattooed lip colour is one of those procedures you wish you had done years ago. A client told me that her blushed lips were noticed by staff and patients when she unexpectedly spent a few days in hospital. Compliments at such a time can really give you a lift! Other unexpected compliments come when you are camping, on holiday, or at work when you can say to your colleague/s “yes, it’s tattoo”.

We in the cosmetic tattoo world know micropigmentation is not necessarily in place of traditional or topical makeup. Many of you, myself included enjoy cosmetics and it’s easy to wear different lip colours over blushed tattooed lips. Semi-permanent makeup done well and on it’s own, gives us confidence, and means we can feel good anywhere. It’s so we don’t look completely bare except for some careful makeup (smile).

Hair strokes can be etched into the brow area with a hand-tool or machine. Depending on the experience of your artist, one procedure is as good as the other. At Gentle Cosmetic Tattoo, we enjoy the individuality of free-hand design before making your tattoo makeup semi-permanent.

Be aware, that all skin is not the same! Some procedures require one (rare) but usually two or more procedures. It’s well worth having cosmetic tattoo etched into the skin in a way that is right for you, with refreshers every six months or yearly.

Have a wonderful MAY.



If you worry about down time as far as cosmetic tattoo is concerned, the Easter holidays is the perfect time. Just a few days of not having to do too much, and if you are busy, we ask you to keep your procedure nice and clean.

So that means, no picking, no swimming or excess forceful water (showering and what have you). It means being aware, and using your common sense. You may give your skin a gentle wash once or twice a day, patting dry and using the tiniest amount of after-care cream. Remember that micropigmentation, consists of the various procedures of cosmetic and medical tattooing and needs time to heal, settle and peel. Your skin is in the process of change over that time and usually requires little from you except correct after-care. Unusual occurrences, soreness, redness may be a sign of infection and requires your direct attention. phone us to alleviate concern as the area may only be dry/itchy due to healing.

Microblading and nanoblading, are beautiful techniques done with needle assemblies and not blades. They give a natural and lovely result especially when coupled with natural vegetable pigments.

We correct, remove and/or camouflage work that could have been classier or prettier. Colour change can be unexpected if the original pigment was a poor choice or has been affected by incomplete aftercare, sun, condition of the skin or health of the individual. Cosmetic or medical tattoo can be greatly improved with a refresh, giving softer, more interesting effects.

At Gentle Cosmetic Tattoo, we ensure your comfort and safety whilst showing you how your makeup tattoo is progressing during the (usually) two hour visit.

Safe effective tattoo removal, eyebrow hairstrokes, lash line cosmetic tattoo, lid shading and lining, lip blushing and shaping, scalp micropigmentation, Plasma fibro-blasting.
