Testimonials

Olympia was great at explaining the process involved when tattooing my brows for the first time. She was happy to make any adjustments to the brow shape and made me feel comfortable throughout. I'm glad I don't have to draw them in every morning, they're already more defined than they were before!”

Jenny Chen

If your thinking of having your brows tattooed I thoroughly recommend Olympia. My brows were thin from many years of over plucking, I had always wanted a thicker brow line but couldn't achieve the look as I was useless at using an eyebrow pencil!.....but now I don't have to touch them, they look perfect all the time & I have had so many positive coments....”

FAQs

Cosmetic Tattooing

What is cosmetic tattooing (micropigmentation)

It is a process of depositing pigment into the second layer of skin (upper reticular layer),  creating eyebrows, eyeliner, lip liner, beauty spots and lipstick.

How long does cosmetic tattooing last?

It is different on everyone due to skincare, sunscreen used, and type of skin, but generally...
Brows last between 18 month to 2 years.
Eyeliner lasts 2-3 years.

Does it hurt?

I use 2 types of anaesthetic, one topical to put on the skin before the tattooing process starts, then a gel to use while I’m tattooing between colour applications. But it depends on the person, some people it doesn’t hurt at all, but some people it hurts abit, it depends on the individuals pain threshold . Brows have a scratchy feeling, and liner and lips are done with the needle gun.

Brows

Brows are done with a feather stroke tool, this creates a natural hair stroke look. Immediately after the procedure, the brows will be very dark and bold, but this will only last for 7-10 days, until the brows are healed and they will fade up to 30%. I recommend getting them refreshed once every 12 months at $130. If you leave it more than 2 years, the price goes back to the original price of $380.

Eyeliner

Eyeliner is done with a tattoo machine and needle. It will be very bold for the first 2 weeks, then will fade up to 30% and become lighter and softer looking.  Eyeliner is $220 for either upper or lower, or $400 for both. Touch ups once a year are $130.

 

Refinements

Refinements are necessary as cosmetic tattooing is a work in progress. Its recommended to come back around 6 weeks after the original treatment for the perfecting treatment to make sure everything is looking good and to add more colour to make it last longer. This appointment is $120 . 

Keeping them fresh

Try not to put cleanser or skin care products on the tattoos, especially retinol or alpha hydroxy acid skin care. Use sunscreen to protect them and prevent fading. Be vigilant with your aftercare, i will explain the aftercare at the appointment and give you an aftercare sheet to refer to.
