If you are a makeup enthusiast, eyeliner may be one of your closest companions. It’s difficult to fathom any makeup look without those wings, but in all honesty, putting them on every day may be a daunting process.
Consequently, many women choose semi-permanent eyeliner tattoos. It allows them to wear their favourite eyeliner without worrying about it smearing for decades. But what is this miracle therapy exactly?
Basically, eyeliner embroidery is a cosmetic technique that replicates the appearance of eyeliner.
Using electric equipment built specifically for cosmetic tattooing, the artist infuses semi-permanent pigments of natural origin into the skin of your eyelids, “permanently” painting on your desired eyeliner.
The entire technique is considered non-invasive since there is no downtime, and you may resume your normal activities immediately afterwards. However, it does need a few weeks of healing while your skin recovers from the micro-trauma.
Can anyone get it?
As is the case with any permanent makeup treatment, most people are suitable candidates for the semi-permanent eyeliner technique. However, the following situations make getting tattoo eyeliner dangerous:
- Viral illnesses or infections
- Continual chemotherapy
- Bleeding disorders
- Local skin disorders such as Psoriasis or Rosacea.
- susceptibility to keloid scar development
- Anticoagulant medicine
- People with diabetes should obtain a physician’s consent before consuming alcohol.
- Recent Botox or dermal filler injections (you need to wait at least 2 weeks)
Is it the same as a traditional tattoo?
As mentioned previously, eyeliner embroidery is a type of cosmetic tattooing. However, it is distinct from conventional tattooing.
First of all, it’s not permanent – that’s simply a phrase the business uses – and the colour and visibility will ultimately fade to some degree. This is also called semi-permanent eyeliner since new techniques, pigment technology, and more sophisticated instruments are employed.
Permanent cosmetics pigments are designed to be progressively metabolised by the body. The pigment fades within 1 to 5 years, and the eyeliner tattoo will vanish.
How should I prepare for permanent eyeliner?
There are a few things that you should avoid before your eyeliner tattoo appointment. Those include:
- Do not colour or elevate your eyelashes two days before your operation (some artists advise as long as 2 weeks).
- Remove your eyelash extensions at least three days before your surgery if you have them.
- Inform your PMU artist if you’ve undergone eye surgery or other regional intervention (Botox, filler, laser eye surgery, etc.).
- Avoid the following medications for at least three days before treatment: aspirin, ibuprofen, niacin, coumadin, fish oil, and vitamin E.
- You should not consume alcohol at least 24 hours before the surgery.
- Do not consume caffeine 24 hours before the surgery since you will bleed more heavily.
- You can’t get your tattoo wet for the next three days, so wash your hair the next morning.
- After the treatment, your eyes may be sensitive to light, so bring shades to wear at home.
Relax! It’s not as frightening as you may believe.
