You may still have some stain left leaving some colour however the strokes will fade and lose definition. This is why we recommend coming in annually for your refill to keep them looking fresh.Why do I have to come in for a review after treatment?Cosmetic tattooing is not an exact science, many variables can influence why a tattoo may not hold in certain places. Everyone's skin is different; colour may hold differently, there may be sun damage or scarring, or mishaps in the healing process. That is why we recommend coming in for a review at the 4-6 week mark for Nettie to assess and perfect the brow or lip.Is it the same as a normal tattoo?A Cosmetic Tattoo is not the same as a regular tattoo. The difference between the two treatments is the machine, the depth to which the pigment is tattooed into the skin, and the pigments used. Traditional tattooing is injected deeper into the skin and uses ink, whereas Cosmetic tattooing is more superficial and uses a pigment.How many years has Nettie been in the industry?Nettie has been a cosmetic tattooist for 9 years and has been in the beauty industry for 25 years.Which clinic does Nettie work at?Nettie works from all our Adelaide clinics: Mount Barker (Monday, 1 Saturday per month) Somerton Park (Tuesday) Norwood (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) Nettie also travels to Port Lincoln and Broken Hill every 6 weeks.
