About Permanent Eyeliner

What would you say if we told you that you would love permanent eyeliner any you would not have to deal with eyeliner anymore that smudged, smeared or cried off? Well, with permanent eyeliner that can be true for you too!

Permanent eyeliner is a cosmetic tattoo that can be applied on the upper and lower eyelids. For darker and thicker lashes the lash line can be filled in. Have the liner applied thin and natural or thick and dramatic, it’s your preference. A variety of colors can be used, however, shades of brown and black are certainly the most popular.

When you decide to have the eyeliner tattoo procedure done, it is of utmost importance to choose your permanent makeup artist with care. Take the time to have a few consultations and look at before/after pictures of work that they have done. This is not a decision to make on the spur of the moment as correction can be costly, not to mention the horrible feeling of having a botched makeup job. Choose an artist who is qualified and has done many, many procedures. Ask about the procedure set-up and make sure that all needles are sterilized and disposed of after one use and that the artist’s credentials are current. Do not be shy about inquiring as to the guidelines for using personal protective equipment to prevent infection and avoid cross-contamination. Any conscientious practitioner will be happy to talk with you before you make a decision.

So what can you expect post-procedure? After having permanent eyeliner done, there is some simple after-care to think about. The eyelids can be puffy and tender and may stay that way for a few days. You’ll want to sleep with your head elevated the first night or so. Your eyes will typically look like you’ve been crying a lot. If you swell up after a good cry, then you can expect to look like you have had a good cry. They may be noticeably tender, maybe a bit red but not terribly swollen or painful. You will be provided with after-care instructions and you’ll know what to do and what to expect before you leave the studio.
