A softer more natural look to enhance your features can be achieved however a made up look tends to last a longer. Tattoo colours will always look darker and more solid for about 1 week. Area may also look slightly uneven due to swelling. You are now required to obtain your own anaesthetics which we can apply for you 30 mins before the procedure. Emla is about $20 and an over the counter anaesthetic however you can get a more effective anaesthetic from a compound chemist a few days beforehand.

FAQ cosmetic tattooing
How long does cosmetic tattoo last? The pigment can last up to 5 years. Lighter colours will fade faster than darker colours.
Does cosmetic tattooing hurt? A topical anaesthetic is applied to reduce discomfort. Most clients say it is more irritating than painful.
Do I have a choice of colour? Colours can be easily blended to your desired shade. These soft colours are designed to bring out the best in your natural appearance, instead of the harsh traditional colours. The pigments are FDA approved iron oxides, dispersed in alcohol and glycerin which are organic substances. All my pigments are of the highest quality and are approved for cosmetic make-up and paramedical procedures. Allergies from these gamma sterilised pigments are rare.
Can you change an old tattoo? The good news is that you are never stuck with a colour, it can be modified. Shiralee has had a lot of experience at softening those older and harsher traditional tattoo colours. Often the initial colour can fade off to its base colour, for instance red is the base of brown. Thankfully we can can correct this easily and prevent it from happening again.
How long does the procedure take? Most appointments are 1.5- 2hrs however most of this time is consultation as eyebrows for instance only take 30mins to tattoo. You may also need a perfection visit after 6 weeks as some areas may not take as well as other spots.
What is involved in healing and post care? Most people take the day off work following the procedure. Eyeliner usually looks like you have been crying or suffer from hayfever. Lips will be swollen too, however eyebrows generally just looks like to much make-up. Swelling can be reduced with an ice pack and may last from 2 to 72 hours, this is very individual. A cream will need to be applied for the week while the colour is more intense.
Do I need a consultation? Consultations are essential to determine your expectations. We offer a complimentary 15min consultation. This can be done at the same time as the procedures however the $80 deposit will be non refundable if you decide not to proceed with the treatment that day, due to the time allowed.
Do I come in with make-up on? If you have a specific look you are after you can wear make-up to help us compare colour and shape. We will need to wipe it off though to apply the anaesthetic and then redraw it afterwards.
Do I shave my eyebrows? Most certainly not. Although we can change the shape of the brows, we try to keep the eyebrows as natural as possible.
What is the difference between eyebrow-shading and eyebrow hairstrokes? Eyebrow-shading is a technique that looks more like a pencil effect. Hair strokes fills in the gaps and resembles natural brow hair.
What is the difference between eyeliner and lash enhancement? Lash enhancement is where pigment is inserted in tiny dots between the lashes to make them look fuller. Perfect for the non make-up look but still gives definition. Some clients prefer a line on the upper lid and lash enhancement on the lower lid.
Am I too old for cosmetic tattooing? It is suitable for all ages especially the elderly who find it hard to apply make-up due to shaky hands or glasses. My clients range from 18 to 92. Just be aware if you are on blood thinners the colour may not absorb as easily.
What tool do you use? I use a rotary machine especially designed for cosmetic tattoo. It evenly disturbs and implants the colour into the dermal layer of the skin.
