Most clients report minimal to no pain. Topical anesthetic is applied throughout the procedure to ensure the client is as comfortable as possible. I've had clients fall asleep on me!
What if I have an existing brow tattoo?
Prior to booking, please send clear photos of your bare brows so we can review whether or not they can be performed on. Your existing brow tattoo must be at least 50% faded.
How long does it take to heal?
Healing time varies per client. The "healing period" is about 7-14 days. It then takes about 4 weeks for the pigment to settle into the skin and is considered healed.
What forms of payment do you accept?
CASH preferred or Zelle. If you prefer Venmo or a debit/credit card, please note an additional 3% transaction fee is required to process the payment. No checks or payment plans.
How do I book an appointment?

How long does Permanent Makeup last?
PMU, also known as Micropigmentation or Cosmetic Tattoo is semi-permanent. It can last between 1-3 years. Each client differs and longevity varies by lifestyle, diet, age, sun exposure, skin type, etc.
Will i be able to go out after the appointment?
Yes! You can run errands, go to work, dinner, etc. Keep things simple: no sun, no exercise, no sauna/jacuzzi, no direct water, no alcohol, no retinol, no exfoliants. Plan accordingly around any big events.
Do you have a referral program?
Refer a friend and you both receive $25 off a future appointment. To claim this: (1) both client and referral must have a confirmed booking; no cancellations (2) both must enter each other's name when asked upon booking. See policies for more details.
Why is it so expensive?
Let's break it down! This is an investment on your TIME that you can't get back. For example, you spend $400 on microblading, you're only spending $1.10 every day for 365 days. That's 5,475 minutes saved if you spend 15 mins a day to fill in your brows!
Should i groom my brows before my appointment?
Do not tweeze, wax or tint your brows at least one week prior to your appointment. No need to perfectly groom them as we will do a little bit of that for you. If you have hair, please leave them as is and don't shave them completely off.
Do i need to get a touchup?
I would highly recommended to book a touchup appointment as these appointments are used as the "perfecting" session. We can examine how you healed and make any adjustments or corrections to color, shape, etc. Maybe you do want to go darker or fuller?!
Is semi-permanent a tattoo?
Yes, it is a tattoo. However, unlike traditional tattooing we only insert pigment into the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis). We also use pigment instead of ink. So, 1) it fades quicker than a traditional tattoo and 2) it's not nearly as painful as a traditional tattoo.
What if I don't retain the pigment?
This CAN happen and may be due to several reasons that cause the skin to push out the pigments: 1) You may unknowingly have a PPD allergy 2) You have very oily skin 3) You didn't follow precare or aftercare properly 4) You had a skin infection
Can you guarantee your work?
Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee results. Each individuals skin reacts differently due to skin type, age, diet, stress, scarring, medications, lifestyle, sun exposure, skincare, etc. We strive to offer the best possible experience and client satisfaction we can.
What if I don't like it?
Please do your due diligence! I will work closely with you throughout the process to ensure you are satisfied. I highly recommend booking your touchup as this is the perfecting appointment. If you are still unhappy with your decision, you may opt for non-laser saline tattoo removal.
Do I need a consultation prior to booking?
This is not required unless you've had previous permanent makeup or tattoo done elsewhere. We will need to examine whether or not we can proceed with the treatment. So, a photo is required prior to booking a correction/coverup or removal.
Can i wear makeup after the procedure?
Makeup can cause infection. It's very important to keep the treated areas clean and free of bacteria. So, please refrain from applying any makeup or skincare (except for the ointment provided) to the areas until the scabbing period is completed.
Why can't i drink any caffeine or alcohol?
It's VERY important that you refrain from consuming any caffeine (tea, coffee, boba), soda, energy drinks, or alcohol at least 48 hours BEFORE or directly after your appointment. Failure to do so may cause bleeding which effects healing and retention.
Can I wash my hair for hairline microblading?
Unfortunately, no! Aftercare is similar to brow microblading. Thus, we recommend washing your hair BEFORE your appointment as you will NOT be able to wash your hair for the next several days during the healing stages.
Can I dye my hair before or after my appointment?
Your scalp may become more sensitive when getting hair treatments. Please no chemical scalp treatments at least two weeks before AND after your scheduled hairline microblading appointment.
What if my brows are not 50-70% faded for a correction or coverup?
If you have previous permanent makeup that is NOT 50-70% faded we cannot work over it. Depending on saturation, we may recommend booking a saline removal session to ligthen your current brows. This may take a few sessions to achieve.
