I use a range of techniques to create a flattering frame for the eyes such as a gentle line, a heavier line, or a Smokey liner to suit each client.
The first part of the process is a consultation. After going through the consultation form, I will talk with you in detail about the look you are trying to achieve and what method might be best recommended for your skin type and which colour will be most flattering for your skin tone. This is very much a two-way conversation where I will listen, respond, and advise. Once we have an idea of the look you are aiming for, I will draw the eyeline on with a makeup pencil (these can be drawn on and adjusted 50 times if necessary!). I will never begin the tattoo process until you are completely happy with what they are going to look like.
Using a specialist machine, I gently apply pigment to the eye area using very fine needles. The sensation is that of an electric toothbrush being held against your skin – you feel the vibrations, but discomfort is kept to a minimum with the use of topical aesthetic and by using light pressure. I will always work with you at this stage, giving you breaks if you need them. The process normally takes about one hour, but it varies from person to person depending on your individual requirements. After the treatment your eyes might be a bit puffy and sensitive. We advise you to not drive a vehicle immediately after an eye treatment.
A second appointment is needed 6-8 weeks after your first treatment. This is usually a 60 minutes appointment to possibly add more pigment to the brow area where pigment has not held well during healing (this is completely normal as everyone heals differently) or it could be to deepen the colour throughout. Whatever the case, we advise you always to come back for your retouch even if you are 100% happy with the initial results
