Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be any swelling?

Healing times for eyeliner - 5 to 7 days. Eyebrows - 7 to 10 days. Lips - 5 to 7 days

 

Do the inks affect doctor's equipment?

The inks we use are non-magnetic, so you will be able to have MRIs.

 

Is your equipment clean?

Everything is sterilized before the procedure and is disposed of after each application.

 

Does it hurt?

Being a licensed tattoo artist, I have access to the strongest anesthetics available. They

are applied ten minutes before the procedure.

This will depend on how the tattooing is cared for, and you will be given a specific after-care sheet. If followed, you will have no problems with healing and be less likely to require any touch ups.
