I Woke Up Like This

Many of us probably know people who have taken advantage of the convenience of permanent makeup.  Permanent makeup is nothing more than tattoo art used for cosmetic purposes. Permanent makeup can consist of eyeliner, lip-liner, and eyebrow tinting.  Typically, permanent makeup can be done by some tattoo studios, estheticians, and medspas. Here are some pros and cons about the permanent makeup world.

Pros:

Permanent makeup can be a game changer for people on the go.  Permanent makeup will look clean and fresh at all times of the day and during any activities like swimming, showering, exercising, etc.  Your makeup will look as though you just applied it. For people with sensitive skin, the elderly, burn victims, cancer patients, and more,  permanent makeup can make your life easier. It can save you time and money by not having to shop for the correct makeup for your complexion, the motion of applying makeup, and being able to see past your insecurities.   

Cons:

While it can be an “investment” to get permanent makeup applied you can empty your drawers of all the makeup you have bought and never used and the monthly trips to replenish what you do use. The cost of this procedure ranges between $300-$1,000 depending upon the procedure and the studio.  The cost can vary based on how long the procedure takes, where you want the permanent makeup applied, the quality of the work, and the training of the individual performing the procedure.  As with any tattoo, there is also the possibility of health risks. Be mindful that there can be infections, scarring, allergic reactions if you have sensitive skin (See blog from March 7th, 2019 ).   Just like tattoo removal, permanent makeup removal is a very long and painful process that is also very expensive.

At https://www.storiesoftheink.com/  we want our fans to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin.  If permanent makeup sound appealing to you, we advise that you speak to your Primary Doctor and Dermatologist before getting this procedure done so you are aware of the side effects you can expect.  Also, research your permanent makeup artist. Visit our tattoo directory and reach out to local artists who are qualified to do this procedure. https://www.storiesoftheink.com/tattoo-shop-list/

Happy Tattooing!

Yours, Zoe
