What is Microblading?
Microblading is the process of implanting color pigment beneath the surface of the skin by means of a small, sterile, disposable needle to produce the appearance of fuller eyebrows or to enhance the natural features of the face.
How long does microblading last?
The treatment is considered semi-permanent and will not wash off, however, it will fade over time and may need a touch-up every 1-2 years. Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including: the pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster), lifestyle (sun exposure), iron deficiency (your body absorbs iron-oxide as a supplement), and if any chemical peels come into contact with treated areas. Please note that final results can not be guaranteed as each unique skintype will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. The tattooed hair strokes tend to have a more crisp look once healed on dry skin compared to more blurry strokes on oily skin. I will re-evaluate how your skin has received the pigment at your touch-up appointment and make any changes necessary.
Touch-ups are normal for cosmetic tattoo procedures, with each new procedure requiring 2 visits. The initial procedure is followed by a touch-up procedure if needed about 6-8 weeks later.
Can I get my eyebrows microbladed if they were previously tattooed?
Unfortunately, I do NOT work on previously tattooed/microbladed eyebrows.
Do you offer training in cosmetic tattooing?
I do not offer training/apprenticeship at the moment. Any changes to this will be announced via Instagram/Facebook/Twitter.
How many treatments are needed?
Two treatments are usually needed, at least 6 weeks apart. Sometimes just one treatment is sufficient, but a touch-up appointment is offered at low cost if needed. With most procedures, the color looks dramatically lighter after the first week. Some clients prefer this, while others opt for a bolder look. At the second treatment, we will assess the color retention and make adjustments as necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your cosmetic tattoo does not heal perfectly the first time, do not worry! We can always go darker and add more density at your next appointment.
*Please note, if a service is received during a guest spot, a return trip is not guaranteed.
How will I look immediately after? What is the healing process?
Your semi-permanent makeup will appear darker and bigger than expected for the first few days. This will gradually lighten during the complete healing process. Please view the detailed aftercare.
Can I get tattooed if I'm pregnant or nursing?
As a precaution to avoid any complications, I do not perform cosmetic tattooing on pregnant or nursing women.
How can I book an appointment?
All booking is done through this website on booking day. Please refer to the "Booking" tab for more information.

A $200 deposit is required to book an appointment. The deposit is non-refundable and goes towards the total amount for your appointment.
Do you work on the weekend?
I don't at the moment. The studio is open Monday to Friday.
Can I bring a friend/family member with me to my appointment?
Yes, you may bring one person with you to your appointment. The studio is very small and any extra friends/family members must wait outside of the studio.
My reschedule/cancellation policy is a minimum of 48 hours. Any no-shows or cancellations within 48 hours will forfeit their deposit and will be required to re-book a new appointment for an additional $75 fee.
