Q&A: Why Are Cosmetic Tattoos so Popular

They say that beauty is being the best possible version of yourself inside and out. I do not know about you but I still have not met a woman who does not want to look beautiful, elegant and perfect from head to toe. However, not every woman can afford the luxury of spending precious time on doing her make up while her newborn hysterically cries for her to hold him. Not to mention visiting beauty salons on a daily basis. But in a modern era like this one, there is always a way out; at least when it comes to beauty and cosmetics. Therefore, today more and more women find the solution to these sweet problems in the the permanent perfect look of cosmetic tattoos.

In the recent years cosmetic tattooing has become one of the most popular trends among Australian ladies who dream of having a perfect makeup look 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Beauty salons offer several different types of cosmetic tattoos which can make these dreams come true in a blink of an eye. From permanent eyeliners and stunning eyebrows to permanent lipsticks, you can choose your preferred treatment to ensure a flawless look.

However, before you undergo such type of cosmetic procedure, the first thing you need to do is find a reputable cosmetic salon and do your research in order to learn some basic things regarding cosmetic tattoos. For that purpose, we have put together some of the most common questions women ask before deciding for one or more cosmetic tattoos.


Q: What is cosmetic tattoo?

Cosmetic tattoo is a procedure similar to typical tattoo. It is performed in specialized beauty clinics from specially trained cosmetic tattoo technicians. It includes injecting small dots of special pigments whose colour is determined in accordance to your natural hair and skin colour or based on your specific requirements. These colour pigments are injected under the upper skin layer, and usually it takes about two hours after the treatment for your skin to completely heal.

Q: Will my eyebrows and lips look artificially tattooed?

This is one of the main things women dwell over when it comes to cosmetic tattoos. If performed by certified technician and under medical circumstances, the outcome of the procedure is a completely natural look. Another important factor that influences the natural-looking results is the colour selection. Thus, the closer the colour to your natural skin and hair colour the pigments, the more natural your look will be.


Q: Will I experience pain during the procedure?

The truth spoken, cosmetic tattoos are not painless procedures, but there are many methods that can decrease or eliminate the degree of pain you feel. For instance certain anesthetics may be used for reducing or blocking pain, especially during lip tattooing.

Q: Will my permanent cosmetic fade?

There is no 100% guarantee that the colour of your tattoo will remain the same forever. However, it will take many years for any colour changes to occur.

Q: How long does the procedure take and when will I see the results?

A typical cosmetic tattoo procedure lasts around one hour. You can see the results right after the procedure is completed, but the final look of your new look will be visible after two to three weeks or after the healing process is completed.
