         QUALITY MATTERS

Permanent makeup can be absolutely beautiful when done correctly. It is very important to go to an experienced artist for your work. Unlike standard body tattooing, permanent makeup is a process because face skin and body skin tattoo very differently. It can take anywhere from 1 to 3 sessions to complete a procedure.  We use the highest-quality Perma Blend pigments which are made in the USA. Look no further for experience and quality.

  • Will I be swollen after the procedure?
    Generally, brows do not swell much but you can expect some mild to moderate swelling with the eyeliner and the lip procedures. The swelling can last for 1 hour to 3 days but shows up mostly in the early mornings after you wake up. For brows, you can resume normal activity the same day and for eyeliner and lips, if they are swollen, it is advised to treat them with an ice pack for 10 minutes before resuming normal activities.
  • Does it hurt?
    The use of a topical numbing cream is applied prior to the procedure for your comfort. Depending on your pain tolerance, most clients either feel nothing or mild pain.
  • How can I best prepare for my procedure?
    We will do a verbal screening over the phone to be sure that medically you are a good candidate. In addition to the screening, it is advised to refrain from taking any over-the-counter blood thinning medications such as Ibuprofin, aspirin, vitamin E, caffeine, and fish oil (omega vitamins) for 7 days prior. Also, refrain from consuming alcohol for 24 hours prior. Avoiding these products will help your skin retain more color. For eyeliner, it is advised to not wear contact lenses. Also please have on hand a bottle of witch hazel and sterile cotton at home for aftercare. For Lips, it is advised that if you have ever had a cold sore or fever blister you pre-medicate with an anti-viral. You will need to have this prescription filled for the follow-up visits as well. Always follow doctor recommendations.
  • How long will the procedure take?
    New procedures can vary depending on the service but most procedures can take 1-2 hours to complete. Brows generally take 1.5 hours.
  • Do you take payment plans?
    Yes, we offer payment plans through Cherry and you can find a link for the application on our website.
  • What if I don't like it after it is done?
    The most important thing is to choose an experienced artist. After all, it is a tattoo on your face. You will avoid the mistakes that some inexperienced artists make. We always plan your design carefully with precise measurements and get your approval prior to applying your makeup. Sometimes freshly done unhealed makeup can seem darker and heavier than it will look once it is healed. If it is healed and you are still not happy with it, some minor adjustments can be made on both shape and color on your perfection visit. Removal is possible but not advised.
  • Can I bring a friend or family member?
    It is not advised to bring anyone during the procedure as they will not be able to watch the procedure. Artists feel it is distracting for both the client and the artist to have an audience and we also like to keep a very sterile environment for our clients. If someone needs to come with you, they must be over 18 and they must remain in the waiting room.
  • Do I have to have a credit or debit card to reserve an appointment?
    Yes, as most beauty businesses do, we require a credit or debit card to reserve an appointment. New clients will be required to put a $50 refundable deposit down to reserve a first-time appointment even if it is a free consultation. We require a debit or credit card to be on file to schedule returning appointments. There is a 24-hour cancellation policy and if your appointment is not canceled within 24 hours of the appointment, there is an automatic $50 fee for the time that we have set aside. We do understand that sometimes things come up at the last minute. Our artist set time aside for you and unfortunately, many people don't show up or give a late notice of cancellation leaving gaps in our day and loss of income which we earn to take home to our families. We truly do appreciate it when you notify us if you need to change or can't keep an appointment.
  • How long does it take to heal?
    Most procedures are healed within a week. Lips, however, may take up to 10 days to heal.
  • How much does it cost?
    We offer many different methods of applying your makeup and sometimes we combine those methods. Our goal is to do custom work meant for your face that will look completely natural once healed. The procedure price is based on which procedure or combination of procedures that is best for you. Our makeup prices range from $250-$600. Brows generally range from $450-$575. A price for your specific procedure can be determined during a FREE consultation after a careful evaluation of your specific needs.
  • Why should I maintain my makeup yearly?
    Darker colors last longer than lighter colors but all colors need to be maintained. Fading is normal over time due to the elements and other factors. Colors are made up of various colors just like you learned in school when you studied the color wheel. For instance, browns can contain extra red to create a reddish brown color, extra yellow to create a golden color, or extra black to create a darker color. Not all colors in the mix will fade at the same speed. It is necessary to do maintenance visits periodically to keep your makeup looking natural at all times. Lighter colors will somewhat fade away while darker colors usually dull in tone over time. A color boost (yearly visit) is meant to keep your colors balanced and also to help maintain the desired shape. This is why when you see someone with off-colored or dull brows, most of the time, it is because they need a color boost.
