Pre & Post Care
To achieve the perfect results, please carefully read through these Pre & Post care guidelines.

Things to consider
All forms of cosmetic tattooing can cause redness or swelling. Your initial results will appear darker than desired but will fade 10-20% during healing.


We ask that you plan your session accordingly for Eyebrows, lips, and liner. If you have any major events or vacations planned, it is wise to schedule appropriately to allow for healing time.

Healing varies with every client. Your freshly pigmented skin will appear bold at first and go through a healing process. Things like scabbing, redness, swelling and peeling are all expected. During your healing process, it is important you reach out to your artist with any questions as to keep at ease.
