COSMETIC TATTOO

BROWS 

FOR PRICES & AVAILABILITY please click Book Online above.

All brow make-overs are conducted in a very careful and accurate way so that you are completely happy and sure of your design, before we even commence the tattoo. Clare normally spend a good 2 hours in total with her clients for each treatment. The 2 hours is made up as follows:

In the 1st session Clare perform's a detailed consultation regarding your brow makeover and can spend at least an hour drawing on designs and discussing colour, shape etc. Clare will take as long as you need to discuss your design and draw it on to get it absolutely PERFECT. She uses  special techniques and measuring devices during this process. Clare applies an anaesthetic throughout the treatment to numb the area and then proceed's to do the treatment in the design and colour you both have have selected.

Clare mainly does hair-stroke brows with the feather touch/micro blade technique. This uses a hand tool, not a machine, so it is gentle and very beautiful. Very natural results can be achieved with this. We can decide if this is the best option for you on the day. Our consults are absolutely thorough, so all clients feel very comfortable and happy by the time we proceed to doing the brows in the same appointment.

After your brows are done we go through Aftercare and you are provided with a special balm and an aftercare sheet.

You then attend a second perfecting session 4 to 6 weeks later, which is included in the price. At this session Clare assesses the healing, colour, shape etc and can “tweak” anything we need to – say you may have noticed a couple of hair-strokes have lifted or you may decide you want to go a little darker. This can all be addressed at the Perfecting Session.

A deposit of $195 is required when booking your appointment  (refundable with a 5 WORKING DAY or more notice of cancellation).Then the balance is paid on the day of your 1st appointment (which also includes your Perfecting Session).

EYELINER/LIPS

For eyeliner Clare mainly does lash enhancements, where we work colour into the lash line, but you can have a more thicker effect with a "wedge" or "flick" at the end if you desire. All liner is done using a high grade, Cosmetic Tattoo Digital Pen, which meets all of the required Health and Safety Standards. We also use the digital pen for the lips which gives a very beautiful effect.

FAQ

All the Answers You Need

COST

Please click Book Online to access all pricing information.

PREGNANCY

Unfortunately, we cannot perform Cosmetic Tattoo on you if you are pregnant, but would love to look after you once you have had your little one.

  

BREASTFEEDING

  

We are able to perform treatments on breastfeeding women.  We advise that you express for 2 days after the treatment, to avoid the anaesthetic from entering the bloodstream. 
There is no actual evidence that suggests anaesthetic is capable of being passed to your baby in the breast milk, but we like to take this precaution in order to ensure we are taking the utmost care of our clients.

PAYMENT PLAN

Unfortunately, at this stage we aren’t able to offer payment plans, however we recommend that you reserve an appointment with the $195 deposit. You are able to make individual payments leading up to the appointment, or you can pay the remainder on the day.

THYROID CONDITIONS

Occasionally, Thyroxine can mean pigment doesn't take so well, but this varies from person to person. Please be aware that any ADDITIONAL sessions (aside from the 2 included) are charged up to $95 per session if needed. 

Only 2% of clients fall into this category, but this can be discussed during our session. 

IS MY DEPOSIT REFUNDABLE?

Your deposit is refundable up to 5 WORKING days before your appointment should you need to change or cancel your reservation.

I'M PETRIFIED!!

I do this everyday and with my extensive training, I am confident you will be over the moon with the result. I take time with my clients to ensure all their questions have been answered. Prior to the treatment, I take you through the aftercare plan as well as any further queries you may have.

COST CONCERN

With regards to the cost, it is important to remember that this is a cosmetic procedure carried out on the face, therefore you should not base your decision on price alone. I have seen many poor Cosmetic Tattoo results, where clients has either wanted to get it done quicker or decided on a cheaper option. All experienced and reputable technicians will be booked well in advance and charge anything from $600-$1200.  Please note that I personally have over 15 years of experience in the Aesthetics Industry, I consistently invest in ongoing training and have won awards, Australia wide for my work. I have a very reputable business built on integrity and trust and the reviews on my Facebook Page demonstrate a flawless 5 Star Rating with over 80 reviews.

 

I am dedicated to spending a minimum of 2 hours in all of my sessions to provide my clients with a professional, safe and tailored treatment, to ensure complete satisfaction.

CHOOSING THE CORRECT PIGMENT

  

When it comes to selecting colour there are MANY important factors that we take into account.

We look at hair and eye colour, and also take into consideration your brow hair and skin undertones. The undertones determine the blend of colours we choose. This is where a lot of under qualified technicians make errors which result in poorly blended colours that heal to the wrong tone. 

Please feel free to contact me if there is anything else I can assist you with.

I have also attached a detailed explanation of how I perform my treatments and also some further answers to some questions you may have.

CAN WE TATTOO AN EYEBROW SHAPE FROM A PHOTO

With regards to your desired eyebrow shape, it is always great to come in with a reference photo. However, I am very passionate about creating a shape to suit each clients’ individual facial features.

 We will spend considerable time measuring your facial features, mapping out a template, and fine tuning your ideal shape. I ensure the eyebrows I am tattooing on you, enhance and compliment your face. 

POST CHEMO

We can absolutely do them for you and would just need a doctors approval, in the form of a letter, prior to treatment. I often treat post chemotherapy patients and they are thrilled with the results as well as the confidence that this therapy can provide.

LASER TREATMENT

If Laser treatment is required on your brows, there will be a minimum of 8 weeks wait before we are able to perform any cosmetic tattoo treatment. 

We will be able to secure a booking for you in advance, 8 weeks on from your last laser session.

WILL MY EYEBROWS BE TENDER?

They wont be tender at all, as the treatment is extremely gentle. You do have to be extremely careful of ensuring that you dont get makeup, or any moisture directly on them and follow the Aftercare advice provided carefully.

I HAVE A FUNCTION TO ATTEND AND NEED TO WEAR MAKE UP, CAN I DO THIS DURING HEALING TIME AND HOW CAN I SAFELY GO ABOUT IT?

Yes, will just need to be extra careful near the brow area with foundation or eyeshadow.You can pop your barrier cream (which I will supply) over the top of the brows whilst you apply the makeup.

WHAT'S THE AFTERCARE PLAN?

We do provide you with a very concise Aftercare Plan, however, if considering this treatment you will need to be aware of the following:

 

  • Ensure that you are only applying a minimal amount of Bepanthan every 4 hours in the daytime and always before showering. 

  • Do not get your brows wet until they are healed which may take up to 10 days. 

  • Avoid makeup completely in the area and no facials for a week.

  • Avoid the Gym, or any activity that will cause perspiration for a week after.

  • Avoid the sun and plan your vacations and events carefully around your treatments.

CAN I PUT PENCIL OVER MY NEW BROWS?

Once your brows are healed around the 7 days, you can top up the colour with a pencil.

HOW LONG DO THE EYEBROWS LAST AFTER TREATMENT?

The high quality pigments we use are semi-permanent. Generally, the pigments just slowly lighten over time and you can expect to get up to 2 years from your cosmetic tattoo (we generally recommend coming back at approx the 12 month mark). This is due to several factors:

  • Skin Metabolism   

  • UV Exposure 

  • Skin Exfoliation

  • Skin Products

  • Medications

  • Hormones

  • Skin Treatments

 

Because of these variants, we can’t give you a guarantee of pigment longevity, some last longer and some last less, but I do offer a very discounted "Colour Boost" option for my clients once they have had their brows done, for up to 2 years after treatment.

 

The cost of a colour boost price varies dependant on the work involved. Please refer to our Online Bookings.The tattoo will fade gradually and you can let this fade completely, or return to have them topped up.

IS IT SAFE FOR ME TO GET BOTOX/OR FILLERS DONE PRIOR TO MY TREATMENT?

It is best to get the treatment done just before your botox/fillers are due or, half way through your treatment. This allows us to see the face in a more natural state, but if you do have botox/fillers done nearing your treatment, we advise it be done 2 weeks prior to your treatment.

I HAVE PREVIOUSLY HAD MY EYEBROWS TATTOOED ELSEWHERE? CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

Sometimes we are unable to assist with cover up work or work on previously tattooed brows. This is a case by case scenario and we ask that you contact us to see if we can assist.

DO YOU OFFER GROUP DISCOUNTS?

Unfortunately we are unable to discount for multiple bookings, as each client is always offered the same level of time and care with Clare.  No shortcuts are ever taken when coming as a group and we like to ensure QUALITY is our main priority.

EYELINER FAQS


DOES IT HURT?

Absolutely not, the skin around the eye area is a lot thinner than other areas of the face, and therefore the anaesthetic that we use penetrates the skin very easily.
We also use a gentle pH balanced anaesthetic that is gentle on the eyes. We top up the anaesthetic throughout to ensure your comfort during the procedure. 
During the aftercare, you will apply a balm that I supply for you and you will need to keep the area free of makeup and away from ANY WATER for the healing period of approximately 5 days. Please keep this in mind in relation to any watersports, holidays or events that you are due to attend and want to wear full makeup.

WHAT DIFFERENT TYPES OF EYELINER CAN I HAVE DONE?

  • Upper Lash Enhancement – This is a dusting of colour in the upper lash line adding density to lashes and suits ANY eye shape.

 

  • Lower Lash Enhancement - This is a dusting of colour in the lower lash line adding density to lashes and suits ANY eye shape.

 

  • Upper and Lower Lash Enhancement Combined 

  • Thin Upper Liner - The Upper Eyeliner can be done to the desired length across the eyelid, but cannot be tattoo'd into the extreme corners of the eyes OR on the "wet-line". The Thin Upper Liner sits into, and just above the upper lashes, to frame the eyes. A small "flick" or "wedge" can also be added to the tail of the Upper Eyeliner.

  • Upper and Lower Lash combined

HOW LONG WILL MY EYELINER TATTOO LAST?

Eyeliner can last 2-5 years + due to the black in the pigment, they have been known to be permanent, however, we are unable to guarantee eyeliner duration as it varies from person to person.  This is due to internal and external factors on the skin and so we are unable to give an exact amount of time that the treatment will last.

WHAT IS HEALING TIME LIKE/DOWN TIME?

After the appointment your eyes may be slightly puffy. Some people get more swelling than others, so it is good to be prepared. The swelling should subside within 3 hours and may be slightly evident for up to 2 days. You will not be able to wear mascara or makeup on the eye area for approximately 5 days after the treatment so it is important that you clear your diary of any social engagements, 

LIP TATTOO FAQS


DOES IT HURT?

Absolutely not, the skin on the lip area is a lot thinner than other areas of the face, and therefore the anaesthetic that we use penetrates the skin on the lips very easily.
We also use a gentle anaesthetic that is gentle on the lips. We top up the anaesthetic throughout to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

WHAT DIFFERENT TYPES OF LIP TATTOO TREATMENTS CAN I HAVE DONE?

Full lip colour - Solid colour 
Lip blend - Darker border fading to the natural lip colour       
Lip liner - Single lip liner

HOW LONG WILL MY LIPLINER TATTOO LAST?

Lip tattoos can last 2-5+ years.

WHAT IS HEALING TIME LIKE/DOWN TIME?

Immediately after the appointment your lips may be slightly swollen. Some people get more swelling than others so it is good to be prepared. The swelling should subside within 3 hours to 2 days. 

It is important that following the treatment you clear your diary of any social engagements, where you are required to wear make up as you will not be able to wear lipstick for approx 5 to 7 days after treatment. 

The process of lip tattoo does mean that they are extremely dark when they are first done, but will lighten by up to 80% in the first 4-6 days. Please note that in days 4-6, you can expect you lips to peel. 


I would advise booking your appointment on a Wednesday or Thursday so when the peeling occurs, it will happen over the weekend period. 

CAN YOU MAKE MY LIPS BIGGER WITH LIP TATTOO?

We don’t tattoo beyond the natural lip border. This is due to the fact that the skin on the face and the skin on the lips are different colours and depths. This can mean that the same colour tattooed in these areas can look different, and they can also fade at different rates.

I'VE HAD LIP FILLERS, CAN I STILL GET TATTOOED?

I can perform on lips that have had injectables, as long as the lips have only have small amounts of filler. I ask you email a photograph so that I can determine whether a lip tattoo is suitable with your current fillers. 

We don’t tattoo on lips that have had alot of filler due to the lip border being stretched. Which makes it hard to determine where the border of the lip tattoo should be begin.

 

Ideally a lip tattoo should be performed during the middle of your fillers cycle. For example, if you have them filled every 8 months it is desirable to visit us half way through.

The minimum amount of time we can treat you is 6 weeks following your lip filler.
