How long after Botox and Fillers can i have a tattoo?It is preferred to have tattooing prior to Botox/Fillers as it can alter your symmetry. Please wait at least 2 weeks before you have any Botox or Fillers after tattooing.
How do you choose the colour and style?The pigment colour is chosen to match your brow hairs to give the most natural realistic blend of your tattoo.
Jay will advise you on the style and colour that will meet your expectations on the day of your appointment.
All brows are drawn and mapped out and approved by you before any tattooing commences.
Your colour is chosen determining your skin tone and your brow hair (not your head of hair as colours may change). Your bare face is also taken into consideration you may need to apply makeup to the area following the tattoo shape to enhance the colour when wearing a full face of makeup to ensure your brows are suitable whilst maintaining a bare face.
Black and Dark Brown is the only colour Jay uses to apply to eyeliner.
Several colours can be mixed to achieve your perfect lip colour, please bring your favorite lipstick to your appointment to match.
I have a tattoo done from someone else that i require to be re-tattooed?If you have been tattooed by another technician it will be required to evaluate your tattoo in person and will require a face to face consultation to determine the course of action. Please note this is a separate appointment and the procedure MUST NOT be booked in until it is determined a course of action and/or if your tattoo is a candidate for tattooing.
All new clients are required to pay full service cost.
What is a perfection visit?Cosmetic Tattooing is a 2 step procedure. 4-11 weeks post procedure (when skin is fully healed) it is required you revisit to adjust any alterations now that they have healed. At this time another layer of pigment will be administered ensuring a longer lasting outcome.
The aftercare and downtime will be exactly the same as your initial visit.
Please note if you have not completed your tattoo with a perfection visit and further colour boosts outside this time frame will be charge at full service price.
What is a colour boost?Unlike a body tattoo which performed with body ink cosmetic tattooing is performed with a pigment; a product with a smaller molecule that is metabolized at a faster rate than ink. Over time your tattoo will fade and will require a colour boost to enhance and redefine your tattoo.
What is the downtime of my tattoo?Your tattoo will be dark for the first few days of healing, generally the wounds will take 7 days to heal. Within this time you must keep your tattoo dry, avoid sweating and keep out of the sun. You can wear makeup but not on the area of your tattoo. A complimentary after care pack will be provided at your appointment with detailed instruction

A topical anesthetic is specially made up from a compound pharmacist and will be arranged for you and will be used throughout the duration of the procedure. A large percentage of clients find this alot more comfortable than they expect.
Please DO NOT apply any numbing cream for eyeliner or lips, A different method for this will be administed within the clinic.
