Q & A
Can I choose my own shape and color?
You will have discuss shape and color with Nadia upon arrival. In proposing a design for you, she will consider your age, your personality, your current use of makeup, your daily activities and the color and undertones of your skin. Nadia will also consider the shape of your lips, structure of your brow bone, or curvature of your eyelid before creating the shape outline. Once the design has been drawn on, you must approve it before the tattooing is started.
Will my eyebrow hair continue to grow?
Yes, your eyebrow hair will continue to grow. To maintain the shape of the tattoo, its recommended that you tweez, thread, or get electrolysis to remove any hairs that grow outside of your tattoo pattern. We do not advise you to do waxing.
Is Microblading the same as a tattoo?
Microblading and permanent makeup are cosmetic tattoos. Any procedure that implants pigment or ink into the skin is a tattoo and is permanent. But, instead of using regular tattoo equipment and needles, we use only state-of-the-art digital technology specifically formulated for cosmetic tattooing procedures. Our equipment is quiet, precise and more gentle for use on the face.
Are the pigments you use safe?
I only use pigments specially formulated for the face. The pigments are of the highest grade and quality, and are strictly tested and regulated.
What is the difference between permanent and semi-permanent?
All Microblading tattoos are permanent, since it is being implanted into the skin. Even with removal, there will always be traces of pigment left behind.
How long will the Microblading cosmetic tattoo last?
Even though we call a Microblading tattoo permanent, the color will fade naturally over time and you will need to have the color touched up from time to time. The time it takes to fade depends on the client’s skin, health, lifestyle and tattoo maintenance. Generally, this is between one and five years depending on the procedure.
The following time frames are typically recommended for touch ups:
*Permanent Brows: 2 years
*Permanent Eyeliner: 2-5 years
*Permanent Lips: 2-5 years
How long does an appointment normally take?
The average time for a Microblading permanent makeup procedure is 2 – 2.5 hours. A master artist can complete a procedure in one hour or less. Before the application, the client will undergo a consultation which includes discussion of medical history, lifestyle, personality, design, color, and any questions or concerns. After a topical numbing agent has been applied, the design will be drawn on for a review from the client. Tattooing itself takes between 30 and 90 minutes depending on tissue response.
