F & Q
Below are a few questions that are often of concern when considering Permanent Makeup. Consultations are highly recommended for ALL permanent makeup services.
Question: Is this a Tattoo?
Answer: Permanent makeup is similar to tattoos in their technique, however with pmu, the artist goes no deeper than the upper dermis layer of the skin. We use organic pigments and not tattoo ink.
Question: Is there any discomfort/pain?
Answer: Unlike most traditional tattoo artists, we use a topical numbing agent before and during to reduce pain and discomfort. Most clients experience little to no discomfort.
