Cosmetic Tattooing: Eyebrows

Women all over are finding permanent cosmetic eyebrows are perfect for them.

As with any artistic appearance enhancement service, techniques will vary from technician to technician. The process cited below are popular techniques used but not necessarily followed exactly by all permanent cosmetic professionals.

If you wear eyebrow pencil, your technician may ask you to wear your penciled eyebrows to the consultation the way you would like them to appear after the cosmetic tattoo has healed.

The skin is cleaned with an appropriate cleanser. Some technicians apply an anesthetic before the cosmetic tattoo process, some do not. After the anesthetic has taken effect and removed, the eyebrows are drawn on with an eyebrow pencil that has been disinfected prior to use.

It is very important that you and the permanent cosmetic professional you choose have a good verbal communication relationship. As the client, you must convey details of your design and color preferences and the technician must understand these preferences and translate them over to tattooing artistic techniques.

Before any cosmetic tattooing commences, the client is given the opportunity to approve the design that will become permanent.

When the permanent eyebrow procedure has been completed, aftercare instructions are normally provided. Some technicians provide products if any are referred to in the instructions. A follow up appointment is normally scheduled in four to eight weeks depending on the age of the client, to determine how the eyebrow procedure healed and if any further work is needed.
