COSMETIC TATTOO FAQS
Amy Jean Eye Couture is known for their incredibly realistic approach to cosmetic tattooing and only want the best results for you. Clients have the option to have a separate consultation before the procedure or the option of sending through pictures of the area to establish if the procedure can be done. We request that these pictures are filter free, with no makeup on the area and uncropped to allow us to zoom in if necessary.
Some clients may not be a suitable candidate for cosmetic tattooing. Before booking in for an appointment with us please ensure that you have read through the below list.
Cosmetic tattooing is not suitable for the following:
- Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers
- Chemotherapy patients
- Seborrhoea Dermatitis
- Extremely Sensitive Skin
- Excessive Sebum (very oily skin)
- Sunburnt Skin
- Skin that has recently had any sort of laser/cosmetic treatments.
A week before the cosmetic tattoo we also advise to stop using any products with Retin A, AHA or actives. If you are on Roaccutane or any other medication that may affect the skin please contact us to discuss.
Can I wear makeup to my appointment?
Yes, you can wear makeup to the appointment – we will wipe the area with an antiseptic wipe before placing on the anesthetic.
Do I need to purchase my own anesthetic for the procedure?
Your appointment includes half an hour of anesthetic that we will apply before you move through to the design process. Throughout the procedure your artist can top you up so you remain numb for the duration of your cosmetic tattoo.
How will I look after the procedure?
After the Feather touch tattoo there will be no redness or swelling to the area, however the lips and eyeliner will have a subtle swelling (in some cases this is only very minor). We don’t recommend having a cosmetic tattoo procedure prior to an event/special occasion where the area might make you feel a little self conscious. As the area heals, the pigment will deepen in colour before fading away and this can last anywhere from 3-10 days.
Can I bring friends or children to my appointment?
Unfortunately our salon isn’t child friendly and due to Occupational Health & Safety, only the tattooist and client can be in the room during the procedure.
How does this affect my botox treatments?
We recommend having your botox in between the initial tattoo application and the retouch appointment. Amy Jean recommends Caroline Young from “Metica Clinic”. Metica is situated in the same building as Amy Jean Eye Couture Sydney CBD Studios.
What is the “post care for FTT”
Amy Jean Eye Couture artists recommend a ‘Dry Heal’. This means the area treated cannot be exposed to any water, oils, rich moisturisers or heavy makeup in the T-zone for 7 days. Some clients book a professional blow dry to avoid watering the brows in the shower. If the skin type is excessively dry you can use a minimal amount of bepanthen across the brow on the 2nd & 3rd night.
If you have been previously tattooed or have any additional questions please feel free to contact us before booking in and we can answer any queries.
