Thank you so much claire.in theory, yes, its a tattoo as you are implanting pigment into the skin with a needle.
However it does not go as deep as a conventional tattoo and the pigment molecule sizes are different.
Also the machine we use isnt as powerful as a tattoo gun.
Can I just add that it should not hurt at all. If you are numbed correctly using the correct anasthetic creams it is a pretty pain free procedure.
I have had so many women come to me that have used other technicians and are petrified to get on my bed as they claim it 'hurt like hell' last time.
Every one of them could not believe the difference when i started as they could not feel anything.
I also think its sometimes the inexperience of the technician, as they are probably going too deep into the skin causing it to hurt more than it should.
I had my eye brows done, I loved them, it's the only time I've ever had an arch to my brows and if money allowed I would have it done again in a heart beat.I have been looking into sp make up for a while specifically brows.
Can any of you offer advice on what sort of things i should look for when sourcing a good therapist? I live between edinburgh and glasgow in central scotland so can travel to either city or somewhere in the middle. I dont know anyone who has had it done so cant even go on a recommendation. Does anyone know any therapists in this area?
Gutted you are in Bolton BabyElephant!! :-( x
Thanks susie!I had my eye brows done, I loved them, it's the only time I've ever had an arch to my brows and if money allowed I would have it done again in a heart beat.
I have seen some real night mare brows, both on the internet and from clients who have come to me for other treatments.
So, what to look for, an artist who mimics natural hair, you will look very strange with a block of colour or a single line, I know I've seen both!
But an artist who uses her gun to place fine short lines, just like brow hair will be able to give you amazing brows.
When looking you want to see the artists work, not generic photo's from the suppliers gallery. You want to see testimonials and you want to be able to contact passed clients to ask them how they felt about the whole experience, just the same as getting a builder in
Don't go cheap, there is a reason it costs what it does, it's good training, quality products and experience.
Sorry I can't give you a link, the lady who did mine no longer does them, she makes more money as a tattoo artist down here in Corby.
