Permanent makeup tattoo techniques
Types of permanent makeup techniques
Microblading eyebrow tattoo technique
It is used for eyebrow tattooing. The peculiarity is that the master applies the pigment with strokes. This guarantees a natural result – the effect of thick, wide and lush eyebrows in the spirit of trends is obtained. Previously, when tattooing eyebrows, the outline was simply filled with colour, so they looked as if they were drawn. Now the approach has changed.
Shading eyebrow tattoo
This technique involves shading tattooing. The master uses pigments of different shades: for example, in permanent eyebrow makeup, it is a lighter paint at the base and darker at the ends. He also tries to soften the eyebrow contour.
After working in this technique, many small points remain on the skin. It is difficult to see them even up close, and from a distance it seems that the eyebrows have clearer outlines and saturated colour. The result is soft, there are no sharp graphic lines, as if the eyebrows were outlined with a pencil with pressure.

Lip blush tattoo technique
It is most often used in lip makeup – their contour is tinted in one colour, and inside it is filled with another pigment, one tone lighter.
Permanent makeup techniques are often combined. So, the hair technique can be combined with shading: first create strokes, and then perform shots to make the lines softer.

Tools and materials for permanent makeup
First of all, the master needs a permanent makeup machine and disposable needles for it. They are single-pronged and, for example, three-pronged – just for shading the colour. In addition to the apparatus, it is important to have a supply of pigments in the most popular shades – for eyebrows, arrows and lip makeup.
Also, the procedure is not complete without anaesthetics. Light “freezing” eliminates the appearance of pain during tattooing, so that the creation of makeup takes place in a calm and comfortable mode. Disinfectants – antiseptics – are also a must have.
Some types of tattooing require the artist to first create a “draft” of the makeup. This is, for example, eyebrow tattooing. So the craftsmen stock up on pencils, rulers and special stencils to first outline their future shape.

Recommendations for skin care after permanent makeup
Special skin care at the site of tattooing may be required only for the first time after the procedure, because cosmetic tattoo still injures the skin.
You will most likely spend several days after going to the beautician with swelling and redness. Further, the skin will begin to peel off, and during this period it is important not to do anything with the resulting crust. Wait for it to disappear on its own. Do not scratch the skin in the tattoo area. Try to avoid activities altogether that can increase the irritation. Let the skin recover and help it with healing agents.
Experts advise disinfecting it with Chlorhexidine and softening it with Depanthenol, which at the same time restores tissue. Processing will be needed several times a day; to do everything right, follow the instructions from your beautician.
A repeat visit to the tattoo procedure is always necessary. The fact is that before the first session, the beautician cannot predict with extreme accuracy how the skin will “behave” and how it will accept the pigment.
The second time, you can correct all the flaws, achieve the shade that you wanted to see initially, enhance the brightness of the colours and, in general, bring the makeup to perfection.

Further, the correction will be needed only at the moment when the paint begins to fade, and the shades fade.
To get rid of permanent makeup that has turned out to be unsuccessful or has already outlived its usefulness, special laser procedures are done. Cosmetologists use ultra-short laser pulses that destroy the pigment, literally tearing it into small particles. Skin cells utilise them, so that within a month after laser exposure, the pigment “leaves”.
