Thank you so much for respecting our time, as we respect yours!
WHAT IS EYELINER TATTOOING?
Eyeliner tattooing is a treatment that replaces the need to wear eyeliner each day, saving you time in your daily makeup routine. The semi-permanent cosmetic treatment involves using a tattooing technique to apply ink along the lash line to create the appearance of eyeliner (annual touchups are recommended due to fading over time). Eyeliner tattoos can be applied in a variety of styles, from extremely thin (natural lash enhancing), to thicker lines, and even winged eyeliner. The procedure also helps to improve the appearance of light-colored or missing lashes.
HOW LONG WILL MY EYELINER LOOK THIS GOOD?
Eyeliner tattoo treatments are considered semi-permanent and will look great for one to two years, dependent on genetics, lifestyle, and skin type. An annual touchup is recommended to keep your eyeliner looking fresh.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
One session is all that is needed. A touchup is only needed if the treatment did not yield any results (for example if the skin did not hold any pigmentation). Please review our Eyeliner Tattoo Touchup Policy here.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
We ask clients to arrive 20 minutes before their scheduled appointment. We use this time to apply the numbing cream to your eyelids, which requires time to take effect. The tattoo procedure itself takes about 1 - 1.5 hour, depending on the eyeliner style you choose (includes consultation).
Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for semi-permanent makeup. It is not recommended for any clients who are or have:
Glaucoma and those who are taking blood thinning medicines (e.g. Aspirin)
Chemotherapy and Other Cancer Treatments (please consult your doctor)
Diabetic (please consult your doctor)
Viral Infections and/or Diseases
Pacemaker or major heart problems
Skin irritations or psoriasis/eczema near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)
Botox within the past 2 weeks
Pregnant or nursing
Those with allergies to makeup, colors or hair-dye
Those with easily triggered post inflammatory hyper pigmentation
Those with transmittable blood conditions like HIV or Hepatitis
Are a hemophiliac
Have healing disorders, on blood thinners, uncontrolled high blood pressure or had mitral valve disorder.
Those on any skin medication such as Roaccutane, steroids which thin and oversensitive the skin.
AHA's (lactic, glycolic, citric, retinoid a d tartaric acids) or any OTC creams and lotions for tone correcting, anti-aging, exfoliating - fading can discolor your semi-permanent makeup.
Juvaderm or other "fillers" in the past 4 weeks.
Shingles (Varicella): If you have shingles on your face, please wait several months to get semi-permanent makeup.
WHAT FACTORS WILL AFFECT MY COSMETIC TATTOO?
The regrowth of skin cells: The longer the regeneration takes, the longer the pigment holds.
The speed at which the skin absorbs the pigment: The slower the absorption, the longer the pigment will hold.
The location of therapy: Enhancements to the face, as an example, fade faster as a result of constant direct exposure to UV rays.
Bleeding throughout the procedure: Any bleeding during the tattooing treatment will lower the amount of pigment absorption.
Alcohol as well as particular medications work as blood-thinners and must not be taken before and following your eyeliner procedure.
HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GET TATTOOED?
You must be 18 years or older to receive a tattoo service at LoAnn's Brow Art Studio. If you are under the age of 18, please have a parent/legal guardian email us at LoAnnsBrowStudio@gmail.com for more information.
CAN I GET TATTOOED IF I AM PREGNANT OR NURSING?

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
Please schedule your appointment here. Please note that a NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT is required to schedule and secure your appointment. The deposit is to ensure that you are serious about your appointment and will be deducted from the total price of the service. If you cancel or miss your appointment, you will simply forfeit your deposit. Please read our our Cancellation & Rescheduling Policy in the following section.
(How to Prepare for your Appointment)
If you are using an eyelash growth serum/booster, please immediately stop using the serum/booster soon after booking your appointment with us.
On the day of your scheduled appointment, please make sure to arrive with NO eyelash extensions, NO contact lens, NO makeup, and NO mascara on your eyes.
If you have eyelash extensions, please have them removed at least 3 days prior to the day of your appointment to ensure your eyelids are no longer sensitive due to the eyelash extension's glue.
For your safety and the safety of your baby, if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding, we cannot perform the procedure and will ask you to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
Avoid facials, chemical peels, laser treatments, microdermabrasions, botox injections and fillers for at least 2 to 3 weeks prior to your appointment.
If you have used Accutane within the last year, we will be unable to perform the procedure as it leads to increased swelling, bleeding, and pain. It will also impede your skin's healing process.
Must be free of skin irritations, such as sunburns, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, and severe acne on the treatment area.
If you wear contact lens, please do not wear them at your appointment and refrain from wearing contacts for at least 4 hours post procedure.
You must be off of your antibiotics 2 weeks prior to your scheduled procedure.
Avoid blood thinners such as Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Aleve, Vitamin E, and Fish Oil at least 1 week before procedure, unless it is medically necessary, in which case we will need a doctor's note.
Avoid alcohol or caffeine consumption 24-48 hours before your scheduled procedure.
(How to Care for your Eyeliner Tattoo)
Wash your face normally with a gentle face cleanser and apply a thin layer of ointment onto your eyeliner at nighttime for at least 4 to 5 days. You may apply the ointment in the morning if the area is dry.
Do not pick, rub or peel off your scabs, to avoid bald spots, scars, or infection (itching is normal as skin is repairing itself).
Keep the treated area clean and dry (use a q-tip)), avoid environments that would cause dirt or germs to contact the area while healing.
Gently wash the treated area to remove bacteria, build-up of product and oils, and dead skin. After washing, use a clean cotton pad or tissue to blot dry the area, and apply a thin layer of ointment with a q-tip. We suggest using gentle soaps, such as Dial, Cetaphil, etc.
Avoid tanning for at least 3 to 4 weeks after procedure.
It is recommended to not sweat and exercise after the procedure for at least a week.
Keep your hair away from your face.
No eye makeup (mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, etc.) on the treated area for 3-4 days.
Do not use mascara until outer healing is complete.
Avoid sleeping on your face, use a fresh pillowcase.
Avoid face-down swimming in pool, sea, lakes, and hot tubs for the first 7-10 days.
Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
Do not wear contact lenses until at least 24 hours after the procedure.
Have sunglasses available to protect the treated area from UV rays.
Do not dye, perm, or use an eyelash curler for 2 weeks.
Expect eyelids to be a bit puffy and swollen for a couple days.
Eyes may feel dry/irritated and may be sensitive to light post procedure. You may bring your sunglasses and lubricated your eyes with eye drops.
No eyelash serums or growth stimulation, these products might cause pigment migration.
Picking or pulling off skin that is not ready to come off will cause pigment loss and can pull out deeper tissue.
(What to Expect During the Healing Process)
Day 1 | Procedure day! Eyeliner may be slightly larger and darker. This is due to color oxidation and is a normal part of the healing process.
Day 2-3 | Your eyeliner may feel tight and dry but not painful.
Day 3-5 | Your eyeliner will begin to flake and shed naturally due to healing. It is common for your color to appear lighter then it will eventually heal. This is only temporary as your freshly healed skin is hiding the true color underneath. Over the next several weeks your color will bloom.
Day 42 | At 6 weeks your eyeliner is fully healed.
Signs and symptoms of infection (please contact your physician at first sign of infection):
Feeling Waves of Heat and Cold
Swelling of the Tattooed Area
Pus Coming Out of the Tattooed Area
Red Lesions Around the Tattooed Area
Areas of Hard, Raised Tissue

EYELINER TATTOO TOUCHUP POLICY
Since eyeliner tattoos heal beautifully on their own, we do not offer complimentary touchups. Before performing the procedure, a thorough consultation was provided and agreed upon between the client and technician on the eyeliner style. If a client chooses to change the eyeliner style, an extra charge will be incurred. All touchups are priced at the same flat rate of $300.
In some cases, we will offer a complimentary touchup if the procedure did not yield any result (for example, if the pigmentation did not hold). In circumstances such as this, clients must schedule an appointment with us within 2 months of the procedure. Clients are only allowed to reschedule one time for this specific touchup appointment, and the appointment must be scheduled within the first 4 month timeframe from when the procedure was completed. We require a 48 hour notice to reschedule.

4+ Years from Initial Session | FULL PRICE
A non-refundable deposit is required to secure your touchup appointment. This non-refundable deposit is to ensure that you are serious about your appointment and will be deducted from the total cost of your service.
