What pigments do I use for cosmetic tattoo
In this post I want to talk about pigments for cosmetic tattoo, which ones to use and how to use them.
As this post is aimed at people from different countries, I am going to try to make it as useful as possible, although there are regulations regarding permitted pigments in each country. In Spain, for example, pigments for cosmetic tattoo must be registered by the AEMPS.
What I am not going to talk about is brands, because as you already know what I try to do with my post is to transmit my knowledge and experiences and share it with my readers and followers, in order to help you resolve doubts.
Once this point has been clarified, the next thing that we must assess is the composition of the pigment, that they are derived from oxides, that in their composition there is glycerin, alcohol … batch and registration.
And once we have all of the above verified, we find several brands, and which is the best? Well, what I advise here is to try the different brands, and to choose the one that we like the most, because it handles well with the dermograph, that it is a pigment that fixes well, that it has a relatively varied range of colors …
There are times when some brands are used for some techniques, other brands for other techniques. But the most important thing is NEVER mix pigments from different brands.
As a basic rule, in eyebrows it is necessary to avoid using black, and it will be necessary to use different shades of brown, and in the case of making corrections, use the correctors or neutralizers of the color according to the chromatic circle.
On the lips, it would be advisable to avoid brown, and always pay attention to the phototype and the mucosa, because many times simply neutralising the base color is enough to obtain satisfactory results, although I recommend looking for colors that are as natural as possible, on pink tones.
In the eyeliner it is advisable not to put pure black, because over time it degrades to blue, and one option is to make the eyeliner by mixing black with very dark brown.
In paramedics and scars, everything depends on the type of skin and the correction we want to carry out.
And always the pigment allergy test.
I hope this post has been useful to you, if you have any questions or want to share an experience with pigments, I invite you to write it after this post, or to contact me, as I will be delighted, as always, to be able to answer your questions. Doubts.
