Cosmetic TattooUnderstanding Cosmetic Tattoo
Cosmetic tattooing/Permanent Make Up techniques have been used to enhance and correct facial and body features for centuries in the east and decades in the west. Techniques have since been developed to create natural results with minimum complications. Cosmetic tattooing can be used to enhance, correct, camouflage and re-shape features to help you look your possible best.
Initially, cosmetic tattoos just like conventional body tattoos used manual techniques that would “tap” needles dipped in dye into the skin. This method although effective, consumes a lot of time and is more painful for the client. Also, manual cosmetic tattooing techniques did not allow for some of the effects modern technology can now create.
Cosmetic tattooing procedures now involve an electrical tattoo pen, that automatically and rapidly insert dye in to the skin using needles. This way consistency in the depth of the insertion is insured, thus resulting in an even, natural look. Inks/dyes have also come a long way in cosmetic tattooing, They tend to be more sympathetic to the skin and facial tones and fade without discolouration.
Contrary to popular belief, cosmetic tattooing is a permanent procedure. It is a common misconception that it is a semi-permanent procedure. Cosmetic tattoos tend to fade more and quicker than body tattoos, this is due to the fact that they are inserted at different depths, more subtle tones are used and they are located on the face, which is constantly exposed to the harsh environment.
