When one first thinks of a tattoo they think of some design inked on a rough and tumble biker, and sailor. Well news flash bikers and sailors are no longer the only people getting inked these days, mother, aunts and even grannies are heading to tattoo parlors to get inked. However, some of them are opting for a little less traditional tattoo. Believe it or not you can actually get your “make up” permanently tattooed on you. No more worrying about your make up wearing off or worrying about applying it in the morning. Once you wake up you are literally ready to go. However, this tattoo process is a little different than the traditional tattoos.
Just like the traditional tattoos these make up tattoos are injected into the dermis, your second layer of skin. However, the cosmetic tattoos use a subtle color palette that aims to naturally enhance assets. Unlike traditional tattoos a topical ointment is applied to your face to numb the area that is receiving the tattoo. The most common make up tattoos are as follows: the eyebrows, lip liner, eye liner and full on lipstick. It takes any where from 4 days to 2 weeks for the make up tattoo to heal. Once it is healed you may have to get a touch up in between four and eight weeks after initially getting the make up tattooed. Everyone is different so keep this in mind you may even have to go for a third if you are not happy with the results. After that you should be good for a few years. Please note that your face will appear to be very red, swollen and not normal after getting this procedure done. So you may want to plan your schedule around that.
