  • People with skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema and undiagnosed rashes or blisters very close to the treated area or right on it.

  • Those with easily triggered post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation are not good candidates

  • People prone to keloids

People with active acne on the eyebrows or around the area, will need to inform artist of condition. Please DO NOT wait until the day of the appointment to inform the artist.

If you have moles, skin tags on the treated area, it must be avoided during the procedure.

Note: If you are planning to have any procedure done before a big event, I suggest you plan and book 3-4 months in advance to allow for proper touchups and healing!

Eyebrow Aftercare

Note: Eyebrows heal in stages. They will be darker at first, then lighten and peel, look pale underneath then the color will bloom back. It is a two-step process and some may need a third touchup for desired results.

  • DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss!

  • Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks after your procedure. Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to change color while it is healing and can also cause hyperpigmentation and scarring. Hats and SPF 30+, when healed, is necessary.

  • Avoid pool, sauna, steam rooms, hot showers and/or hot baths for 7-10 days.

  • Avoid sweating on your face for 7-10 days. Sweating through or on the brows will expel pigment from the skin with poor results. This is super important!

  • Avoid sleeping on your face/brows for the first 7-14 days and wear bandaids cut to size while flaking at night to prevent accidental rubbing.

  • Keep your bangs and hair pulled back from your face for the first 7-14 days.

  • NO makeup or skincare products to be used on the treated area for 7-14 days and until flakes are gone. If your skincare contains retin-A, vitamin C, or any light acids—avoid on the brows completely for the lifetime of your brows. Avoid getting foundation on the brows as it will cause an ashy cast over them.

  • Sunblock when healed to prevent fading

  • NO eyebrow tinting for 2-3 weeks after

  • Avoid Retin-A, Chemical Peels, Laser Treatments, Microdermabrasions, and/or anything to treat hyperpigmentation around the brow area once healed to prevent fading of your brow tattoo.

  • Do NOT have IPL or laser done near the brows or treated area. Pigment will react negatively!! (Can turn black, or change color)

  • Inform your MRI technician that you have had a tattoo.

    Failing to follow any and all instructions can result in poor healed results, additional costs and/or possible refusal of service. There are no written guarantees or refunds.

Eyeliner Before Care

Same as eyebrow pre-care above but also:

  • Must not have eyelash extensions

  • Must not be using eyelash grow serum for 3-6 months. Will cause bleeding, poor retention and possible migration of pigment which cannot be fixed.

  • Must arrive eye makeup-free

  • If you have had any type of eye surgery, including cataract, Lasik, and blepharoplasty, you must consult your physician and get clearance. Most physicians require 2-9 months before you can have your eyeliner done. This is because there is slight pressure on the eye during the procedure.

  • Please do not wear contacts to your appointment and for 24 hours post-procedure.

Eyeliner After Care

  • Some may need a friend to drive them home after. Swelling is normal but can sometimes impair vision.

  • Eyes may be light-sensitive, so sunglasses are also recommended.

  • Tylenol, ice packs may be used to calm swelling.

  • Avoid getting the eyes wet for 7-10 days besides cleaning them.

  • No makeup including mascara for 7-10 days

  • No contacts for 24 hours

  • If eyes are dry or irritated, eye drops may be used.

  • No eye creams on the area for 7-10 days. If it contains anti-aging ingredients, avoid the area

Please be patient–Liner will heal 30% lighter and shrink in size as well. It is also a two-step process.

Failing to follow any and all instructions can result in poor healed results, additional costs, and/or possible refusal of service. There are no written guarantees or refunds.

Lip Pre Care

Same as brow precare but also

  • Make sure to hydrate well in the days leading up to your procedure.
  • Exfoliate the lips from dead skin in the days leading up to your procedure. DRY LIPS will not take pigment well and will heal uneven and patchy.
  • If you have EVER gotten a cold sore—call your doctor and get an oral prescription to take 2 days before and 3-5 days after to prevent an outbreak
  • Must wait 4 months after lip fillers and 6 weeks after touch-up. It is possible to have poor color retention in lips that have had collagen injections within 4 months, and within a year of Restylane. There is the risk of pigment migration along the lip line if you have had Restylane. I prefer to tattoo lips before you get filler.
  • Avoid the following herbs and spices 48 hours before procedure: ginger, cinnamon, garlic, black and cayenne pepper.

Lip Post Care

  • Keep the lips clean and gently wash/ blot away lymph fluid on the first day. Keep clean for 7 days
  • Use ointment given to you on your lips several times a day. This should be done for at least 14 days post treatment. Do not allow lips to become dry. This may interfere with healed color. During the day if lips feel dry, apply a light layer of ointment. Make sure to dab on skin, do not rub in.
  • Avoid water for the first 7 days. (when showering, washing face, etc. have ointment on the pigmented area to protect lips from water). Do not stand in front of shower head when showering. Don’t let them sit in any steam too long.
  • Itching is normal, DO NOT PICK!
  • No soaps, cleansing creams, or chemicals on lips. Wash your face carefully avoiding the lip area for 7 days.
  • Avoid moisture to the lips such as Hot Soup, Hot Cocoa, or Hot Coffee for 5 days. Drink everything through a straw until lips completely peel. DO NOT stretch the lips.
  • Avoid the following herbs and spices post procedure for 5 days: ginger, cinnamon, garlic, black and cayenne pepper.
  • Avoid facials, swimming and or hot tubs for at least five days.
  • Before brushing your teeth, seal lips with ointment first. Put cotton balls in gum areas so toothbrush will not rub against the lips.
  • No whitening toothpaste (during the healing process). Use a small amount of toothpaste. Take a straw with you to the bathroom to retrieve water to swish with. Do not bleach your teeth while your lips are healing (about 2 weeks).
  • You may use ice packs to reduce swelling. Sleeping elevated may help is well. Do not sleep directly on the lips
  • Do not expose the lips to direct sunlight (tanning or tanning bed) for 4 weeks. This is new skin and will sunburn easily and direct sun prematurely may also cause scarring. Use a lip gloss with sunblock of at least 30 SPF to protect the lips when outdoors.
  • Chapstick or lipstick may be used on the lips after the 2nd week.
  • Do not bite into greasy, oily, salty or spicy foods, rather cut them up and place them into your mouth.
  • While eating, do not constantly wipe your lips with a napkin or keep licking your lips at this will impede the healing process. DO NOT PICK dry healing tissue or you WILL remove the pigment color!
  • No smoking while lips are healing! (Approximately two weeks)
  • No kissing, rubbing or friction on your newly tinted lips until the area is totally healed or else you will lose tinting (about 2 weeks).
  • Avoid Retin-A, and Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) near lips to prevent premature fading.
  • If you get skin treatments done, let your esthetician know so she can avoid products on your lips that could cause fading,
  • Lips may be dry for 3 to 5 months depending on the body reaction. Keep moisturized at all times.
  • Color can last up to 3 years

Failing to follow any and all instructions can result in poor healed results, additional costs and possible refusal of service. There are no written guarantees or refunds.
