Enhancing Your Beauty within the cities of San Diego, Carlsbad, Del Mar & nearby areas of California

Permanent make up is applied to the skin through the use of tattooing. The methods involved with this procedure are known as dermagraphics, micropigmentation, or micropigment implantation.

Cosmetic tattooing is available to people of all ages. It’s a way for people to enhance their appearance. This procedure may be especially beneficial to people who are allergic to other cosmetics

Others choose cosmetic tattooing because they want to look their best at all times. People who do a lot of swimming, aerobics, running, and other physical activities can work up a sweat without having to worry about touching up their make-up.

People who are visually impaired or who have physical limitations may have trouble putting on make-up. Cosmetic tattooing can be a suitable alternative in those instances as well. Some people are very busy and just don’t have time to put on make-up.


Eyebrows are an area for cosmetic tattooing. Some people may want a simple line they can use as a marker to draw in their own lines. Others may want to have their eyebrows completely re-created. The technician can draw in a few hairs or make a full brow. It all depends on the client’s wishes


The lips are another popular area for cosmetic tattooing. It is important to talk to your technician about your lip design and color objectives. The chosen color will likely complement the natural color of your lips. You may also want permanent lip liner if it matches your skin tone and you want more definition.


Permanent make up in San Diego can also include eyeliner. It is available in many colors and styles. Some people prefer a soft and natural look. Try to give the technician an idea of how you want it to be applied. Some technicians will even ask clients to come in wearing eyeliner so they can re-create the same look. Another option is to bring in pictures.


The results from cosmetic tattooing are considered permanent because the color is implanted within the skin. For this reason, a person can’t wash it off. Still, the color can fade. That’s why it may be necessary to have periodic color re-enhancements done. The first procedure can last for up to two hours.

The touch-up procedures are often much quicker. It’s best to wait at least four weeks before scheduling a touch-up. A two month wait is recommended for a lip re-enhancement.

Having allergies or just leaky eyes can be a pain and almost impossible to wear make-up or keep it on. With permanent eye-liner, you can have the fresh make-up look 24/7. You even wake up and have your make up on. How amazing is that? Permanent makeup can be applied subtly or dramatically, while appearing so natural that no one knows it’s a cosmetic tattoo. You can also do your lips and brows. Permanent makeup procedures simply offer you the ability to maintain a carefree lifestyle while looking your best.
