What is Cosmetic Tattooing or Semi-Permanent Makeup?
Cosmetic Tattooing, is a popular cosmetic treatment involving controlled insertion of safe colour pigments into the second layer dermis, instantly improving appearance, facial definition and in most instances, a long lasting effect. Basically this is a cosmetic treatment that defines your eyes, brows, lips with a soft, natural appearance that looks, and stays looking, like perfectly applied make-up or the most subtle of enhancements.
Please understand that all cosmetic tattooing will eventually ‘fade’, or metabolise, to some degree over time which is due to a number of individual factors.
I would be more than happy to discuss your needs and talk you through a long-term programme where the tattooing may need to be ‘topped up’.
I use a small purpose-made cosmetic tattoo hand-held implanter. The depth of the pigment deposited is carefully regulated, making the procedure safe and controlled.
Everyone, from the young to the more mature, who desire a soft, natural or prominent enhancement to their appearance can benefit from skilfully applied cosmetic tattooing.
Cosmetic tattooing is especially beneficial for people who:
- Simply want to enhance their current features
- Are unable to apply makeup
- Have poor eyesight
- Are busy and don’t have time to spend on their makeup
- Have unsteady hands
- Suffer from eye allergies caused by makeup
- Are on-stage and in the entertainment/modelling industry
- Play sport and don’t want to worry about ‘sweating off’ or re-applying makeup
- Have thinning or no eyebrows
Is there discomfort involved?
The sensation can vary from person-to-person. A high quality topical anaesthetic is applied to the area that is been treated to reduce discomfort.

Medical tattooing is often vital post treatment, for patients who have undergone surgical treatments such as: brow lifts, face lifts, mastectomy and breast augmentation. Also conditions such as alopecia, other hair loss related to hereditary conditions, hormonal changes, even medications and medical conditions.
Although this is a semi-permanent process, colour can be modified or changed. It has been known to last for many years but generally does ‘fade’, or metabolise over time and may require maintenance or additional visits in the future.
As all cases are unique, I am happy to help you with YOUR specific needs. Please do not hesitate to contact me for a free consultation.
