COSMETIC TATTOO PROCESS
Down below will highlight how an appointment will go with Melissa.
We always start each cosmetic tattoo appointment with a consultation to discuss health history, what to expect during the appointment and any concerns you may have. There is no need to pre-book a consultation if you know for sure this is something you want to proceed with. You can find a large gallery of photos on our Intsagram page as well as Facebook page to see my style of work.
We begin to "map" or pre-draw your shape. Once complete, you will have a look and we will discuss and make sure we are on the same page before proceeding. I never tattoo without shape approval. I will then take pictures of the approved shape for my records.
This is where we discuss pigment choice and how things look while you're healing and once healed. I always try to match the new colour to your eyebrow hair with some exceptions. If you are receiving Lip Blush we will swatch multiple colours on your chin and discuss.
We begin your cosmetic tattoo! Tattoo time can vary but usually ranges between 60-90 minutes. Numbing creams are used through out the whole procedure to keep you comfortable. Your whole appointment from start to finish is about two hours. Once complete I will see you back in the studio for your second session.
