Getting Permanent Makeup

Before getting permanent makeup applied, you'll get a patch test on your skin to check on whether you have an allergic reaction to the pigment that will be used.  After that, you will choose the colour, based on your preference and advice or suggestions from the cosmetic tattoo artist. The technician will then use a sterile surgical pen to sketch the area to be tattooed and then put a topical anesthetic on your skin to prepare for the cosmetic tattoo. 

Once the area to be tattooed is all sketched for specific design and you are satisfied, the implantation of the tattoo will begin. Using a professional cosmetic tattoo sterile needle, the technician will apply the pigment into the top layer of the skin. Each time the needle penetrates the skin, droplets of pigment is released into the area the needle has penetrated. You should feel minimal sensation, the majority of the sensation is the vibration of the handpiece working over your skin.
At first, the colour will likely look intense in colour, and the surrounding tissue will have some swelling, redness, and possibly white tissue around the sight from anesthetic. All areas have slightly different symptoms associated to the area.
Post tattooing, the skin takes approximately two weeks to seal up with the help from provided aftercare, the colour takes upto 5 weeks to settle to its permanent shade.

Depending on the area treated, colour chosen, care of area post tattoo and healed pigment retention, most cosmetic tattooing stays visible in skin between 1-5years and possibly longer. Although reactions to cosmetic tattooing is rare, it is a strong possibility. With sterile workspace and professional training, and correct aftercare allergic reaction and infections are very rare.
