*Remember the last two days are the worst.
All permanent cosmetic procedures are multi-session processes. You will need to come back for at least one touch-up visit before it can be determined that your work is complete. Touch-up visits are scheduled 1 to 3 months after the first visit.
Be prepared for the color intensity of your procedure to be significantly sharper, brighter, or darker than what is expected for the final outcome. It will take time for this transition, based upon how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates.
While these tattooed colors may initially simulate the exact color and tone desired, they will not always remain a perfect match. Tattooed colors are constant, while your own skin color will vary depending on exposure to cold, heat, sun and circulatory changes. For example, if you tan your skin and had a scar camouflaged, your surrounding skin will be darker in appearance than the treated area.
A skin test is offered upon request for a fee of $10.00.
*Your safety, comfort, and time considerations are all as much of a priority to me as are my own.
**Please arrive to your appointment on time and with all of your paperwork filled out which can be found in your appointment confirmation email.

And Change the World!
