Cosmetic Tattooing: Something For Everyone
Whether you’re looking to save time on your morning makeup routine or camouflaging a scar for your emotional well-being, the world of cosmetic tattooing is as wonderful as it is diverse.
What is Cosmetic Tattoo Makeup?
Cosmetic Tattoo makeup is a tattoo technique that may leave you with full brows, tinted lips, a sharp cat eye, concealed under eyes and more for years without the need of any products. Unlike tattooed makeup of the 1980s and 1990s, Cosmetic Tattoo makeup nowadays looks like makeup rather than a line of tattooed ink along with your lids or mouth.
Cosmetic tattooing involves using natural colours, placed more superficially to create a softer less permanent enhancement. Cosmetic tattooing is commonly referred to as permanent makeup. However, the pigments fade over time and reapplication is required to maintain the permanent makeup look.
Is cosmetic tattooing safe?
Cosmetic Tattoo Makeup can be totally safe, but there are certain aspects to consider ahead of time to avoid issues or infections. First, conduct extensive research about the studio. Visit their Instagram page to see before and after pictures, DM other clients, and ensure the artist is licenced to conduct the treatment. You know what to do if they don’t tick all the right boxes. And before you set an appointment, check with your dermatologist to be sure you don’t have any ink allergies or sensitivities. Also, make sure you’re taking good care of your permanent makeup while it’s healing.
How long does Cosmetic Tattoo Makeup last?
It entirely depends on the treatment selected, although it usually lasts between one to three years. So, it’s not quite permanent, but it’s better than the lipstick/tint that smudges off your lips by the end of the day, right? And, unlike a regular tattoo, it does not last forever because Cosmetic Tattoo Makeup does not reach the deeper layers of the skin—it is more of a superficial tattoo.

Is Cosmetic Tattoo Painful?
Although the procedure can take upward of 2 hours, most people report only feeling minor pressure or discomfort and less pain than a typical tattoo due to the use of a numbing cream. Of course, this will depend on your own personal tolerance to pain. Some level of pain or discomfort should be expected.
