FAQs

Cosmetic tattooing

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.

What to expect when you go to your appoointment.

My first step is to talk about what you want and what i can do, answer any questions you have about the process. I then draw on a shape using 2 measuring tools and we both agree on the shape and colour. I wont do anything im not happy with. Then we apply some numbing cream to make the process easier for you. You then fill in the appropriate forms, and we wait and chat until the brows have numbed. I start the tattooing process going back from one brow or eye to the other, until they are both even and done, please note i have to implant the ink so it lasts so i have to go over the area 4 or 5 times . We then go over aftercare and i penetrate ink into the brows while we are talking to make sure it sinks in there as much as possible.

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.

Microblading

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%, then a touch up is required at $120. I recommend getting them refreshed once every 12 months at $150. If you leave it more than 2 years, the price goes back to the original price of $380.

Combination Brows

This is a mixture of microblading and shading, once 2 passes of microblading has been done and the shape has been created, i then shade them in with a digitial machine. This takes quite a bit longer and uses a lot more pigment hence the prioce difference. Combination brows are $460. These brows last longer than the microblading. A touch up is required after 4 weeks at $120.

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 $150.

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.

I went to Tanya Beauty Care in Sydney and did an intensive training day with the amazing Tanya, learning all about combination technique, which is a mixture of microblading and shading, it lasts longer and its a more defined look, great for the tails of the brow and its a better option for people with oily skin , as oily skin makes the tattoo fade quicker than normal skin clients. Also more mature skin needs the combination technique . It will still give you a natural look with the microblading at the head of the brow to give natural hair strokes. If you would like a consultation with Olympia please call 021 276 2234.
