Benefits of Permanent Makeup
The most obvious benefit of permanent makeup is it saves you time. Eliminate time from your daily routine and eliminate worry about your makeup smudging or fading. There are other significant benefits for someone to get permanent makeup beyond the timesaving benefits.
People with physical disabilities or impaired motor skills may want permanent makeup because it’s difficult for them to apply makeup themselves. With permanent makeup, they can continue to wear makeup without frustration. We’ve helped people whose eyesight has declined with aging as well as people who are living with cancer, arthritis, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
Permanent makeup, or cosmetic tattooing, is a fast-growing part of the health and beauty industry. The process of having permanent makeup applied is just like the process of getting a tattoo. Using a needle, your skin is penetrated and pigment is released into the skin. Proper sterilization, techniques, and licensing are key to a positive experience.
Eyebrows thin over time. If you have faint or partial eyebrows, a cosmetic tattoo can redefine the structure of your brow.
Enhance your natural beauty or go dramatic, extra thin line or thick as you want it.
Define your lip line and reduce “lipstick bleed.” A tattooed lip line can also change the size and shape of the lip as well as camouflage facial lines surrounding the lips as a result of aging.
Even out the color of the lip.
I wanted eyeliner for a long time but was very scared to do it. All my anxiety was for nothing. I sat with my numbing cream on and waited my turn and listened as 5 others went before me. I could not see them, but I could hear her instructions. I expected crying or noises of pain, but I heard nothing from anyone. I was done in 5 to ten minutes. Afterwards I was so relieved and happy. I have perfect eyeliner fast and practically painless. I traveled to Paducah for my service after doing my research because I wanted the best.

How The Process Works
Choose Your Shape & Color
We help you choose the shape and color of your tattoo with your features and the future in mind. Permanent makeup is just that – permanent. We help you choose the shape that will complement you always.
Before your tattoo is applied, your face will be marked to ensure your custom tattoo fits all your facial features. The color you choose will be applied to your skin so you can see the color and shape on your skin before the tattooing begins.
We apply a local anesthetic to numb the area and keep you comfortable.
Relax while we apply your permanent makeup.

Everything is sterilized before the procedure and is disposed of after each application.
Do I need any specialty creams?
No, you do not need any after care creams, only cool water.
Will I need touch-ups?
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
Do the inks affect doctor's equipment?
The inks we use are non-magnetic, so you will be able to have MRIs.
Will there be any swelling?
Swelling differs from person to person. You will need to apply ice afterward for two to three hours. We provide ice immediately afterward.
