FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Feather Touch Cosmetic Tattoo FAQs / Frequently Asked Questions
We understand you may have some questions before deciding to book in for your cosmetic tattoo appointment. Please read through our FAQs to find the answers you need. We're happy to talk through any questions or concerns you may have before your appointment.
How many cosmetic tattoo treatments are needed?
All appointments include two treatments. Your second appointment is a perfecting visit where we make necessary adjustments. This appointment must be done no less then 4 weeks and no more then 8 weeks apart. If you have little to no natural brow hair, you may require a third appointment at an additional cost. This will be discussed with you at your first appointment consultation.
Can I wear makeup to my brow appointment?
Yes you can wear makeup on the day to your appointment if you wish. Your Artist will remove what she needs to before she starts.
Will the cosmetic tattoo procedure hurt?
We use anaesthetics to numb the treatment area before and during the procedure which makes each treatment pretty comfortable for you. Each client experiences pain differently. We manage each client accordingly to keep you as pain free as possible.
How is my brow tattoo colour chosen?
We have a huge range of colours to suited each individuals skin tone plus hair colour. The brow colour is chosen together with yourself and the artist. Your artist will recommend and show you colours close to your natural brow hair colour for the perfect blend. If you tint your brows because they are too blonde, grey, white etc, then you will need to continue to tint them after they are tattooed as the cosmetic tattoo only colours the skin behind the hairs, not the hairs themselves. We recommend to wait at least 3 weeks after the procedure before tinting them again.
How long do the brow tattoos take to settle?
The first couple of days your brows will appear darker than your chosen colour. This is because the pigment hasn't healed under the skin yet. The best time to have a good look at the brow colour is two weeks after your first appointment. The colour will then be much softer and settled in the skin. Your artist will go through the full healing process with you in your consultation.
Do I need to shape my brows before my appointment?
No we recommend you to leave them if you can, as you may remove more then we need. Your artist will do a full custom brow shape before the treatment.
Which brow option should I go for?
Cherie will go over each option with you in the consultation. If you have a look through our list of styles in our gallery you will be able to narrow it down by personal preference and lifestyle in the info. The Feather Touch brow option is not recommended for extremely oily skins or clients that are working out a lot as it will fade quicker. Powdered brows are more suited for oily skins and hide larger areas for brow reconstruction on clients with large areas of hair loss.
How long do cosmetic brow tattoos last?
We recommend 12 monthly colours boosts with our Feather Touch brow option. Powdered brows last longer in the skin so you will get more like 18 months before needing your colour boost. Lips and eyeliner tattoos last about 5-7 years depending on colour choice.
Can I get cosmetic tattoo procedures done while pregnant or nursing?
Unfortunately we can not do the procedure if you are pregnant. If you are nursing you will need to express for 24 hours after the treatment before feeding again.
