Should you get Permanent Makeup tattooed?
Permanent makeup sounds great, right?
And maybe a little scary too. But how do you know if it's the right choice for you?
Here are a few things to consider when it comes to permanent makeup.
- Do you fill in your brows almost daily?
If you dread leaving the house without brows, permanent makeup like powder or ombre might be for you. Sparse brows and overly tweezed tails don't have to be a daily struggle and sweating off those brows never has to happen again!
- Do you love to wear eyeliner or lipcolor but hate the constant smudging?
With liner and lips you can choose how dramatic you want them from bold to barely there. Wake up with makeup and be ready in an instant or build on that for bolder makeup looks when you want to. No more unnecessary smearing or frequent touch ups.
- Could you use extra time in your day for something relaxing?
Five or ten extra minutes in your day may not seem like a lot, but it's enough to make a difference. Imagine leisurely sipping your coffee in the morning instead of gulping it down or scrambling to find a to-go mug. Maybe an extra 10 minutes would give you enough time to do some stretching before your day or even walk your four legged bestie. 10 minutes for one day may not be a big change but that 10 minutes EVERYDAY could make a huge difference for you AND your pup.
- Are you mostly healthy and good with care instructions?
You will be required to fill out a health form of sorts before any permanent makeup service. This is for your safety and will help your PMU artist come up with the best game-plan for you. There are also a few contraindications that may exclude you from getting permanent makeup and it's very important to be truthful on your health form.
The after care is almost as important as the actual service itself. If you do not/cannot follow the care instructions given to you, it could cause serious complications during healing. Some of these include but are not limited to MRSA, Staph infection, Scarring, Keloids, Low/No pigment retention, Blisters, Cold sore outbreaks, etc.
So, is that it?
Absolutely not. But these are more of the "first things" to think about. If permanent makeup still sounds like a good fit, reach out to a CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL PMU artist and ask questions about their process and booking. Ask questions about how long they have been doing the type of service you want and what the healing process is like. Schedule a consultation and ask where you can see photos. Any professional permanent makeup artist should be more than happy to do a consult and answer any questions that you have without requiring an appointment.
