The dream of having makeup that won’t disappear inspires many women to explore Permanent Makeup. However, they’re intimidated by its “permanency,” or scared by horror stories from friends. Here are some tips to help you avoid disaster.
1) Permanent Makeup is a tattoo: True
These procedures are created by implanting pigment just below the surface of the skin using needles.
2) Permanent Makeup is permanent: False
Just because it’s a tattoo does not ensure the makeup will last forever. Several factors cause the pigment to fade at different rates of time for different people.
3) Undesirable Permanent Makeup can be removed by lasers: True & False
Not all ink can be removed, and many companies refuse to work on the face. Seek out an artist with an eye for design and color.
4) The procedures are very painful: True & False
While pain thresholds vary from person to person, clients typically describe Permanent Makeup procedures as “annoying.” Find a technician with high-quality anesthesia and equipment.
5) Permanent Makeup technicians must be certified: False
In the state of California, there is no license required to tattoo. Anyone can order a “training” video from the Internet! Experience should be a very important part of your decision process.
