Eye Liners: Ophthalmologists recommend this procedure for those who are allergic to conventional makeup and for those who wear contact lenses or glasses. Eye Liner can be applied as a definite line or a subtle shadow in the lash line. With this procedure, you always wake up looking more rested and will not look as tired at the end of the day. Upper and lower lids are included in the fees.
Eyelash Flares: Very fine & intricate 3-D effect of lines beginning from the eye liner and flaring out to form the illusion of eyelashes.
Eyebrows: This procedure can mimic the appearance of hair in the brow lines. Anyone who desires more fullness of the brows, especially those who use a pencil, will love this procedure. This procedure enables you to go swimming, be out in the summer sun, and be able to wipe your forehead without the embarrassment of wiping off your eyebrows! We use the Microblading technique. Microblading is a manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional hairstroke technique. It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because we’re impacting color closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no “spilling” under the skin.
Lip Liner/Full Lip Color: The procedure for lip liner and full lip color is beautiful! It can appear to change the size and shape of the lips as well as the color. This procedure helps to prevent your lipstick from bleeding into the surrounding skin and lines.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE PERMANENT COSMETICS? Permanent Cosmetic Makeup or “Micropigmentation” is a revolutionary new procedure of applying micro insertions of natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. Used in both the medical and artistic fields for over 30 years, these pigments have an extensive record of safety and their safety is undisputed. Micropigmentation is a separate specialty within the field of tattooing. The State of Tennessee requires specialized training with unique standards in order to perform this service and a one year apprenticeship with a licensed instructor. I am also a member of the American Academy of Micro-pigmentation.
ARE THE PROCEDURES SAFE? The safety and comfort of each client are of the utmost priority of concern. Each procedure is applied using the highest sanitation and sterilization standards available. Sterile, single use needles are properly disposed after each procedure, and I am gloved at all times.
ARE THE PROCEDURES PAINFUL? Although everyone’s pain sensitivity varies, the application of permanent makeup usually involves an initial minor discomfort. Topical anesthetics are used prior and during the procedures and are of the highest possible strength.
I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHOOSE THE COLOR AND WHERE THE PIGMENT IS PLANTED? Absolutely! Color and placement are the most important decision in micropigmentation. Selecting the right colors that enhance your natural beauty is vital to a successful procedure. You may choose bright, vivid colors or simply choose colors to achieve as natural a look as possible. Unless colors have been discussed and decided before arrival of your appointment, you will need to wear your makeup as you normally do and bring in your favorite lip pencil, lipstick, eyeliner or brow pencil so it may be matched to your satisfaction.
IS A “FOLLOW UP” OR “RETOUCH” NECESSARY? At your initial procedure the pigments will be implanted sparingly unless verbal instruction from you is otherwise indicated. During the healing process a large amount of your color will be lost as it migrates into the skin. In most cases, a follow up procedure in 4 – 8 weeks is necessary. Follow up procedures will fine tune your permanent cosmetic procedure. All follow up or retouches must be done with 60 days of initial procedure. After 60 days, retouches will be considered maintenance and charged accordingly.
DO I HAVE TO WEAR MAKEUP WHEN I COME FOR MY APPOINTMENT? We prefer for our clients to come with a clean face, meaning no makeup. Although we clean the area where we are tattooing it is better not to wear makeup in that area.
