How long does microblading/or any other cosmetic tattoo last?
It is considered semi-permanent and will not wash off, however, they will fade over time and may need to be refreshed every 1-2 years. Please note that final results CANNOT be guaranteed as each unique skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates
Does the application hurt?
A highly-effective, topical anesthetic cream and gel are used for numbing during your procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person + every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure. Having this service performed during your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure.
How do you choose the shape?
We choose a shape and style together. At the beginning of the procedure, we will draw in a suggested shape for your new brows and then we work together to perfect this to your preference and measurements are taken to check symmetry and position.
How do you choose a colour?
We choose a colour together by applying small amounts of different coloured pigments to the skin near to your brows and selecting the best match for your skin tone, features and personal preference.
What will they look like immediately after the procedure?
The tattooed area will look darker and strokes will be sharply defined. Over the next few days it will appear even darker and thicker as scabs begin to form. Depending on your skin, it takes anywhere from 7-14 days for scabbing to be over.
Will they fade?
Your body’s skin changes over time and so will any cosmetic tattoo coloration implanted in to the skins layers. However, this natural fading process takes years and touch ups are easily done as your colour fades over time.
Can I have my brows tattooed if I'm pregnant?

What factors will affect my cosmetic brow tattoo?
