got a question?

Will my results be permanent?
Though the pigment may fade over time, it is a tattoo and will remain under the skin for the most part. There are removal methods, however the pigment is implanted under the dermal layer of the skin and is designed to stay there.
How long will the procedure last?
The average is 1 to 3 years for richness in color and shape. Again it is permanent, but the color will fade over time. It varies person to person because it is heavily affected by lifestyle and care (ie sun exposure, product use, skin type, climate changes etc). We recommend yearly touch ups for brows and every two years for lips and eyes. This will help keep the colour rich and the shape intact.
Will the procedure hurt?
We always strive to make every client as comfortable as possible. Most usually experience minimal to no pain at all. We apply anesthetics both before the procedure and during the procedure to ensure that discomfort is kept to a minimum.
Can I use Afterpay to pay for the procedures?
YES! However please note there will be additional charges.
procedure information

general

Please be aware that the permanent makeup is a 2-step procedure, the initial procedure and the following touch up is in between 1-3 months. After 3 months this will not be considered as a touch up, unless the artist and client have agreed that a touch up isn’t needed till a later stage, and it will cost you extra. We can adjust the color and the shape upon your arrival for your touch up appointment.
