What is Cosmetic Tattooing or Semi-Permanent Makeup?

Cosmetic Tattooing, also called 'Micropigmentation', is a popular well-tolerated cosmetic treatment involving the

controlled insertion of safe colour pigments into the dermis layer of the skin, instantly improving appearance, facial

definition and in most instances, a long lasting effect. Basically this is a cosmetic treatment that defines your

eyes, brows, lips and cheeks with a soft, natural appearance that looks, and stays looking, like perfectly applied

make-up or the most subtle of enhancements. All cosmetic tattooing will 'fade', or metabolise, to some degree

over time which is due to a number of individual factors.  Note: it is not legal in Australia to advertise these

procedures as 'permanent'.  Cosmetic Tattooing at this advanced level is all about Experience, Skill, Trust, Passion,

Compassion, Science and Art!  It is not just an extension of beauty therapy.

What is Medical Tattooing?

brow lifts, face lifts, mastectomy and breast augmentation etc. Numerous cosmetic and plastic surgeons refer their

Is there discomfort involved?

The sensation can vary from person-to-person. A high quality topical anaesthetic is applied for the eye area procedures or a dental block is generally administered for lip tattooing to significantly reduce discomfort.

If there is any swelling this may last from two to seventy two hours. There may be some tenderness for a few days.The colour implanted will be darker than you would expect for the first 5-10 days. Most people do not need to take time off from their employment for eyebrow or eyeliner procedures - however, it may be advisable to take the day off if having your lips done.

Do I have a choice of colour or intensity?
