permanent cosmetics

Are permanent cosmetics right for you? 

First step

The mission of this page is to supply you with the information that you need to make an informative choice regarding the acquisition of permanent cosmetics.

Don’t be confused… ‘micro-pigmentation’, ‘interdermal-pigmentation’ and ‘permanent cosmetic enhancement’ are all just fancy names for tattooing. There are many so-called ‘practitioners’ of the trade that will try to discourage one from obtaining permanent cosmetics from a tattoo artist. Ha! What a joke! Don’t let them fool you. Some of them have only obtained the experience and knowledge that a weekend course offers them. Are these the ‘type’ of individuals that you want applying your permanent cosmetics???

Second step

Remember, it has to heal.

Pictures can even be misleading. Photographs taken right after the procedure was performed in no way shows what the ‘tattooed make-up’ will look like once it is healed. There is a 20-30% ‘softening’ that occurs during the healing stage. Photographs taken after the area is healed look so ‘natural’ that it may take a second look to notice what was done (if they are applied properly!).

Our studios use the most modern, hospital type (autoclave) sterilization techniques. Our Autoclave is “Spore Tested” monthly (as required by El Paso County Health Dept., the State of Colorado and the Center for Disease Control).

Everything is kept in separate sterilization pouches, and these are opened in front of each client. Everything is “single use”. This includes the pigments used, gloves, protective aprons, protective barriers as well as the new needles that are discarded into a sharps container immediately after every procedure, in your presence!

After your decision…

Once you have decided to get permanent cosmetics…

When considering eyeliner here are some things to do prior to your scheduled appointment:

  • If you wear contacts please remove them 2 to 3 days prior, (sorry you will have to wear your glasses).
  • Take a Benedryl 30 minutes prior to your appointment, this will help with swelling.
  • You will have to wait another 2 to 3 days before putting contacts back in after your procedure.

Please feel free to ask any questions regarding our procedures. We do not have anything to hide.

We Offer Topical Anesthetics to lessen the discomfort of obtaining Permanent Cosmetics!
