Will cosmetic tattooing hurt?
To lessen any discomfort, we utilise highly effective topical anaesthetics. Individual experiences vary, as some clients have different levels of sensitivity. Some people have compared it to getting your eyebrows waxed, while others claim they felt nothing at all. After the treatment, the tattooed area may also be sensitive, however this will pass with time.
What will my treatment look like immediately after?
You may experience some swelling and minor redness over the following 24 hours, and the colour may appear a little darker than the desired outcome for up to 3–7 days. After your tattooing, you won't need to rest or take time off from work.
Is the follow up appointment (touch-up) necessary?
Yes. After a cosmetic tattoo surgery, a touch-up appointment is usually required. The session offers the chance to polish the tattoo and make sure it adheres to the specified colour and shape. The procedure is necessary since each person's reaction to the pigment is unique.
How long will my treatment last?
Your treatment will naturally fade over time. Numerous things, like as sun exposure, the skincare products used, and individual skin variations, might affect how quickly they fade.
