First things first. It’s a little scary, it’s a tattoo on your face, right?
The 2nd Part of the process could be the same day or a different day depending on your scheduled appointment type. You will fill out some medical forms, show proof or ID (18 years or older.) and have before picture taken for records or otherwise as determined with artist. Now the real fun starts. First your artist will cleanse your skin, dry and draw the design for your enhancement (in some cases such as eyeliner or lash enhancement this may have been discussed and skipped). Once the design is perfected to your standards and the color choice has been made. It’s SHOW TIME!
You will then get comfy on the table/bed. Looking around to make sure everything is clean and sanitized packages are being used in your procedure. ASK questions to make sure proper sanitizing procedures are in place to protect you.
The procedure will likely begin with your artist washing their hands and setting up their machine. A quick pass over the area will be done and a numbing cream/gel will most likely be applied.
Does it hurt? YOWZERS but not for long!! More than likely with the first pass you will feel some discomfort (as previously discussed this is a TATTOO!) There will likely be 1 to 3 passes over the areas. Each pass getting a little more comfortable as the numbing is starting to kick in. Once your technician is comfortable finishing the artwork you will be shown the mirror for any type of perfecting techniques that will be discussed. After the perfection process, you will get to see the result of your enhancement. BEAUTIFUL!
The final steps to finish up the process are to go over the aftercare instructions carefully with your artist and ask any questions that you may have for them about your healing. Your artist will then take an after photo for their records.
Well, that's it (for now) easy peasy, right? We than schedule the follow up appointment. This appointment is done ideally 30 - 60 days after initial procedure. You can expect the touchup appointment to be a breeze now that you're a pro!!
