question:
If it is semi-permanent, will it disappear completely?
mara answer:
This is a common misconception. Permanent makeup requires infrequent maintenance. Fading of your tattoo will happen slowly over time and may get to a point where it is undetectable by you, but there are no guarantees. In order to maintain its color, shape and detail, refresh appointments are needed. The length of time and condition of fading is unique to the individual - variables to consider are lifestyle choices, skin health/integrity, use of skin care products, age and also techniques/technology within the cosmetic tattoo industry. For most people, their tattoo will last between 1-3 years before booking a refresh.
Question:
Do I need a touch up?
mara answer:
Touch ups are highly recommended. Due to the uniqueness of each individual and the superficial nature of the tattoo itself, touch ups provide an opportunity to assess how your skin responds to the procedure. Touch ups provide an opportunity to make any adjustments necessary while also lengthening the longevity of your tattoo. These sessions are not included in the initial price and need to be booked between 6-12 weeks from the time of your first session.
Question:
Does it hurt?
mara answer:
Generally, no. Each person has a pain threshold, but consistent application of anesthetic typically keeps clients very comfortable. If you do not respond to numbing agents, there can be some discomfort.
Question:
How do I proceed if I have previous work done by another artist?
mara answer:
Previous work can be tricky. The current state of your tattoo, and understanding your expectations will help your artist offer advise and help achieve the desired result. All coverups must be pre-approved before booking. Please send a photo in natural light via the contact page on this website.
Question:
Can all three procedure be combined in one dat appointment?
mara answer:
Absolutely! Our artists love when you allow them to create a full look, basically like really drawing an image. It's way easier to create an image all in once rather than separate it, actually.
Just let us know, when booking, that you want to combine services, so we can reserve a plenty of time for you.
