What you do both before and after your cosmetic tattoo service is equally important to ensure the best experience and results possible! Please read through the information below.

Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for cosmetic tattooing. You cannot receive any cosmetic tattoo service if you are:

  • Pregnant/breastfeeding

  • Currently using Accutane or have used within the last year

  • Using any blood thinning medications or antibiotics (must be off antibiotics for a full 2 weeks before your appointment)

  • Prone to keloids

  • Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne, or irritation in the area to be tattooed

  • Diagnosed with epilepsy or have seizures

If none of the above apply, continue reading for how you can best prepare for your service.

  • Discontinue any anti-aging products (includes but is not limited to Retinol, Retin-A products) for at least 2 weeks before appointment

  • Do not get any Botox, filler, chemical peels, microneedling, microdermabrasion, or anything similar for at least 2 weeks before appointment

  • NO blood thinning medications 48 hours before appointment. This includes but is not limited to ibuprofen, aspirin, fish oil, vitamin E, diet pills. *If you need to take a pain reliever, Tylenol or acetaminophen is okay*

  • NO alcohol 24 hours before appointment 

  • NO caffeine 12 hours before appointment

  • NO exercise the day of your appointment

  • If you have a history of being prone to cold sores, it is highly recommended that you take the proper anti viral medications 4-7 days prior to your lip blush appointment to prevent an outbreak.

If you arrive for your appointment and have a condition above or have not followed the before care, you will be rescheduled and charged as a same day cancellation.

After Your Appointment

Immediately after your appointment, please follow the provided aftercare and note the following:

  • No anti-aging products for 2 weeks after appointment (includes but is not limited to Retinol, Retin-A products)

  • No Botox, filler, chemical peels, microneedling, microdermabrasion, or anything similar for 2 weeks after appointment

Brow Aftercare:

  • For one hour post appointment, firmly blot brows with a clean tissue/cotton pad to remove the lymph fluid.

  • By not absorbing the excess fluid, it will dry on your brows, create massive scabs and they will peel and flake like crazy!

  • Within the next 2-3 hours, wash your brows as follows:

  • Wash hands

  • Use a TINY (pea size) amount of provided soap and water NOT in the shower (do at bathroom sink)

  • Wash gently in the direction of hair growth.  This will be a light swipe and enough pressure to remove any excess oil or oozing.

  • Rinse thoroughly.  Cup hands with water and rinse to be sure ALL soap is removed.

  • Pat brows dry with a clean paper towel.

  • Apply 1 rice grain size amount of balm to BOTH brows (a little goes a long way!)

  • Continue to wash brows twice a day and apply balm morning, noon, and night for 10 days (please do the entire wash routine as stated above)

  • Do not get brows wet (other than when washing) for 10 days.  This includes but is not limited to bathing, sweating, steam, sauna, hot tub, etc.

  • No direct sunlight for 2 weeks.

  • No other products on brows for 2 weeks.  This includes but is not limited to make-up, lotion, face wash, serums, shampoo, conditioner.

  • No picking or scratching scabs.

  • Use a clean pillow case and do not sleep on your face.

  • Avoid any products with active ingredients (exfoliants, retinols, acne, and anti-aging products) on brows or it will cause premature fading.


Lip Blush Aftercare:

  • Blot lips periodically for the first hour after the procedure to help reduce scabbing.

  • Keep lips moist with ointment for 7-10 days

  • No picking or scratching scabs.

  • No spicy food for first 3 days.

  • No other products or make-up on lips until fully healed.

There is always a risk of infection for any type of cosmetic tattoo.  If you experience any of the following, stop the aftercare and consult a doctor immediately:

  • Rash/red lesions by the tattooed area

  • Swelling of the tattooed area

  • Pus coming from the tattooed area

  • Hard, raised tissue

  • Fever

  • Abnormal shivering
