What Happens at your Appointment
When you arrive at a salon you and I will discuss the shape and colour you want to achieve with your cosmetic tattoo make up. Important factors in this decision process include the colour of your ownmake up, your natural skin tone and what you the client are wishing to achieve on the day.
When we are ready to commence I take a Before photo and start your client file, this is where I record all of the procedure for future reference. You will also be required to complete a Client Indemnity Form at the commencement of this consultation.
Either you or I draw in the exact shape of the area to be coloured. This is used as a guide and also gives us the opportunity to check that the balance and symmetry is perfect and that you are happy with the look you will have on completion of your procedure on the day.
At this time I will apply a topical anaesthetic for approx. 20 minutes. This will numb the area before we begin. I will then apply the colour gently using more anaesthetic as we go. This will enable me to keep the area numbed during the procedure. This is the most widely used and comfortable method for applying cosmetic tattoo make up.
Once the pigment is implanted, we give you everything you will require to take care of your cosmetic tattoo, after care instructions, creme etc.
We take an After photo and off you go.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER:
If you are nervous, you can take Panadol. This works on the nerve endings and is very helpful. Or alternatively Panadeine, which does the same but also helps you relax a little. If you are prone to runny eyes, maybe an antihistamine before hand could help.
It is important you do not to take any vitamin B or Aspro prior to any procedure.
If you have ever had a cold sore, it is very important to follow the below instructions if you’re having cosmetic tattoo make up on your lips. Lysine tablets need to be used prior too and after the treatment. And also Zovirax cream needs to be applied to the lip area for at least 4 days prior too and after the treatment.
