Cosmetic tattooing–semi-permanent make-up

Cosmetic tattoo procedures

At Ashbury Cosmetics in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast we have an in-house cosmetic tattooist. Often referred to as “permanent makeup”, cosmetic tattooing is a tried and tested treatment for placing or replacing colour in your skin.

Cosmetic tattooing can help you wake up with beautiful brows, expressive eye definition and all the while looking natural. Think of the time you could save in the morning!

When you have your consultation with Ashbury Cosmetics’ in-house cosmetic tattooist we will discuss your cosmetic needs with you. We will work with you to determine what your desired outcome is and the best way to achieve this.

The history of this treatment

Cosmetic tattooing goes back centuries in the Middle East. However, it’s only been in the last 30 to 40 years that it has reached the Western world like it has. Celebrities from Cher and Michael Jackson to Madonna and Whitney Houston have had cosmetic tattooing done.

What is Cosmetic Tattooing and what’s involved?

Cosmetic tattooing is a semi-permanent way to enhance your appearance. This is achieved through tattooing the appropriate pigment colour into the dermis layer of your skin. During this procedure a topical anaesthetic will be applied to the area being treated.

By semi-permanent we mean that cosmetic tattooing can last from 2 years to as long as 7 years before there is a noticeable loss of colour. Fading occurs because of:

  • Skin type
  • Skin products used
  • Medications
  • Natural skin exfoliation
  • Exposure to sun

Frequently asked questions

Here are some of the more frequently asked questions our patients have asked us about cosmetic tattooing:

Is the treatment safe?

At Ashbury Cosmetics our in-house cosmetic tattooist only uses approved pigments and follows strict health and safety regulations.

Who's a good candidate?

A good candidate for cosmetic tattooing is someone who is looking for a waterproof, perspiration proof and time saving solution to cosmetics.

How long does it take to heal?

Healing will depend on what area you have had treated. Generally speaking healing takes around 4 to 6 days. Some swelling is possible as well as slight tenderness but these usually resolve after the initial 24 hours.

Is the procedure painful?

A topical anaesthetic is used to alleviate any discomfort you might feel during the treatment.

How long does it last?

Typically treatment lasts between 2 to 7 years (which is why it’s not supposed to be called permanent makeup).
