How long does the procedure take?
On the first procedure I always book for 2.5 hours, this will cover the consultation and procedure.

What is the difference between Body Art and Cosmetic Tattooing?
In cosmetic Tattooing also called Semi Permanent Makeup, Micropigmentation or Microblading we do not use permanent ink like for body tattoos but semi permanent pigment. The main reasons for using a less permanent pigment are that over time the morphology changes (gravity takes over as we age) therefore using something that allows minor adjustments to colour and to some degree form is considered more desirable by many for this reason.

Will the black line always appear “black” or will it fade?
All Ink will fade with time depending on the procedure and aftercare. Some will fade faster than others depending on your life style i.e. sun, swimming, face creams used etc. A follow up session will ensure more longevity. Black will never look as dark once it heals in because the layer of skin over the top will soften the colour.

How long will the tattoo last for?
Deposited pigment can remain visible in the skin for several years but to keep a fresh appearance and crisp shape a yearly colour boost is recommended.

Will it ever need to be retouched?
Yes, absolutely. A second treatment will need to be carried out 6 to 8 weeks after the initial tattoo, after this, most people come in 1-3 years for a refresh. 
Lighter colours fade faster so if you are blonde or your skin is oily/combined your retouches will generally be annually. The warm and light molecules of colour will fade first.
