Service Details :
Preparing & Taking Care of Eyeliner
How long can I expect it to last?
Due to the delicate tissue we are working in Eyeliner tends to last longer then other areas we tattoo.
Minimal touch ups every few years can be expected. Areas at the lashline may never completely fade away.
We specialize in soft edge liners ( no defined wings) due to how long eyeliner lasts typically skin sags and defined lines soften and blur over time so any styles that are too defined or " perfect" will not fade as well and typically clients are unsatisfied with wings long term
Factors that will cause your Eyeliner to fade faster / Not Retain Well:
• Poor Aftercare
• Sun exposure
• Strong immune systems
• Exposure to salt water
• Iron deficiency
Using Retinol-A or Aha on and around your eyebrows
Using Medicated Lash Serums
Does the application hurt?
We take every precaution necessary to ensure the Eyeliner procedure is as pain free as possible. A strong topical anesthetic cream is used prior to and during the procedure to keep you as comfortable as possible.
Some clients find the procedure a little uncomfortable while others report no discomfort at all.
You must keep your eyes closed and relaxed throughout the procedure we will hold you lid tight and in safe positions to ensure safety
How long is the recovery or healing time?
Immediately after your Eyeliner procedure and in the first few days, your eyeliner will appear significantly darker and defined than perhaps your desired look.
In some cases, the flakes may take longer to heal and fall off. DO NOT PICK YOUR FLAKES. The pigment is within the scab and you do not want to pull any pigment out of your skin prematurely. We all heal differently and what works on one client may not be effective on another so please do not compare your results.
The complete healing process takes approximately 6 weeks.
How do you choose a colour?
We discuss colour preferences together and use colour theory , undertones and your natural colouring to select the best match for your features and personal preference. As a rule of thumb, we choose warm blacks and layer dark brows to enhance your eye colour and not have eyeliner heal or fade blue / grey
What types of pigments do you use?
We use Canadian & American made, Vegan & cruelty free pigments , They are 100% vegetable based with NO HEAVY METALS.
MRI Safe , Our Pigments will fade over time and are naturally absorbed by the skin. They are perfectly safe.
PLEASE NOTE: IT IS ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL TO HAVE A TOUCH UP DONE. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO PREDICT HOW WELL YOUR SKIN WILL RETAIN THE PIGMENT. DUE TO THIS AND MANY OTHER VARYING FACTORS, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE YOUR RESULTS.
How do I prepare for my appointment?
Preparing for your Eyeliner / Lashline Session!
Please read over carefully and if you are unsure , ask your artist .
Do not drink alcohol, too much coffee or energy drinks ( in excess) 24 hours prior to procedure
Ensure you do not have EYELASH EXTENSIONS on during your appointments - we recommend having removed at least 3 days before service and not having reapplied until after you are completed healing after touch up session
DO NOT USE Lash Growth Suppliments / Topical Products like Eyenvy , Latisse , Lumigan , etc for atleast 6 weeks leading up the the session. USING these products increase the likely hood of migration on pigment as your eyelids become more vascular with frequent or long-term use
