Pre & Post Care

The American Academy of Micropigmentation recommends waiting two weeks after having the Covid-19 vaccine before having permanent makeup to prevent any possible reaction during healing.

Medical Restrictions

 Not everyone can have permanent makeup due to skin or other health conditions. A consultation is recommended before your procedure to ensure you are a good candidate. Your health and safety is the #1 priority! 



  • If you get keloid scarring

  • Hemophiliac (bleeding disorder)

  • Are pregnant or nursing


              Triflusal (Disgren)                                Dipyridamole (Persantine)

  Prasugrel (Effient)                              Pradaxia (dibigatran)

  Ticagrelor (Brilinta)                             Xarelto (rivaraxaban)

Ticlopidine (Ticlid)                               Eliquis (apixaban)

  Cilostazol (Pletal)                                Savaysa (edoxaban)

                  Vorapaxar (Zontivity)                         Clopidogrel (Plavix)                 




  • Plan ahead for your procedure! Permanent makeup is a two step process. Approximately 6-8 weeks after your initial appointment you will return for a Perfection Visit. At that visit we can make any adjustments needed to shape or color. In all, it will take about 10-12 weeks for you to completely heal. 

  • No Botox 2 weeks before procedure.

  • Absolutely no direct sun, tanning, or sunburn prior to the procedure. A sunburn will be cause for rescheduling.

  • Any blemishes, rashes or irritations in the area of the procedure are not able to be tattooed. Please call to reschedule and discuss!

  • You MUST be off  Retinols for 7 days prior to your appointment.

  • Avoid alcohol or caffeine 24 hrs prior to the procedure.

  • Discontinue Glycolics, Chemical Peels, Dermabrasion, Laser, Electrolosis and Retin-A 4 weeks prior to procedure.

  • Refrain from use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior to your procedure. Check your moisturizer, face wash BB or CC creams and makeup primers for anything that says acid.

  • No brow waxing or tinting one week before procedure.

  • You have to be off any kind of Accutane (acne medication) for 1 year. NO Exceptions!

  • If your doctor has you take antibiotics prior to a dental appointment, please check if you should also pre medicate before a tattoo procedure.

  • For Eyeliner NO EYELASH EXTENSIONS (Must be removed min of 3-5 days prior to procedure)

    • NO LATISSE-Lash growing serum (Discontinue for min of 3 weeks)

    • No contacts for 72 hours after procedure. Bring your glasses.

  • For Lip procedures, any past history of cold sores/fever blisters, please let the artist know and talk to your doctor about pre medicating with Valtrex or similar medication. Working in the lip area can provoke a cold sore outbreak if you carry the virus. 

  • Due to the nature of the service no children are allowed.

 Post Care

  • Wash your hands before and after touching your face! 

  • Immediately after your procedure and the rest of the day, blot with a damp paper towel every 15 minutes for the first two hours to remove any lymph fluids. Use a clean paper towel and clean hands each time. If you have hair in the procedure area, move it aside to blot the actual skin.   

  • Wash your procedure once or twice a day with a light touch using a mild, unscented cleanser such as Neutrogena or Cetaphil. Make sure your cleansing product does not contain any acids (glycolic, lactic or AHA) or exfoliants. Rinse well with lukewarm water. Pat dry with a paper towel or tissue.  

  • Moisturize your procedure with the ointment that was provided to you using a clean finger or q-tip. Make sure the skin is completely dry before applying.  ALLERGIC REACTION IS EXTREMELY RARE BUT POSSIBLE. IF YOU NOTICE ANY BUMPS, RASH, OR THINK YOU MAY BE HAVING A REACTION, STOP USING OINTMENT IMMEDIATELY. CLEANSE AREA AND CALL STUDIO. Blot away old product before reapplying.

    • Complete instructions will be given to you at the procedure appointment.

  • Avoid direct shower water on the treated area after the procedure.

  • Avoid steam, sauna, whirlpool, hot water during your healing process.

  • Avoid sleeping on your face during the first 10 days after the procedure. Use a clean pillowcase.

  • Avoid using Retin-A on or around the area for 30 days after. 

  • No swimming until the area is completely healed. Salt water/chlorine can cause the pigments to fade or change in color.

  • No exercise or heavy sweating for 5-7 days. Waiting 10 is best. No sweat into or out of the pores!

  • Stay out of the sun! Wear sunglasses and a hat to protect your procedure. No tanning beds, they will fade your pigment. No spray tan until healed.

  • No pet grooming, gardening, dusting or anything that causes dust, dirt or dander for a minimum of 72 hours. Waiting 5 full days is best. 

  • No botox for 2-4 weeks. No facials for 2 weeks. 

  • Makeup around the area is okay. Not on the area for 2 weeks.

  • Skin may be swollen and red under pigment. Some areas of blank pigment may occur and will be adjusted at the Perfection Visit.

  • For eyeliner procedures, do not put contacts in for 72 hours. You can put on brand new mascara after 72 hours. No eyelash tinting for 4 weeks. Wait 8 weeks after Perfection Visit for Lash Extensions or Latisse (growth serum).

  • DO NOT TOUCH, RUB, SCRATCH OR PICK AT THE TREATED AREA. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring.
