Previously, I was wary of tattooing, and there was no need to do it, time, and, frankly, desire. Finding myself on maternity leave, I did decide, which I later did not regret.
A significant role was played by my girlfriend, who is the mistress of a beauty salon and she does permanent makeup for everyone and even herself. I constantly paid attention to her magnificent eyebrows and neatly traced lips.
She finally persuaded me, and no longer able to resist, I decided.
At first, I was embarrassed by the fact that at the time of the procedure I was still breastfeeding my daughter (at that time she was half a year). I was also worried about the soreness of the process and my appearance after it.
Most of all I was worried about the fact that, due to the presence of GW, the color may turn out to be different. During the procedure, we did not use painkillers, so I didn’t worry about my daughter’s health.
There are no special recommendations to follow before the procedure. I wanted to slightly adjust the shape of the eyebrows, so I didn’t pull out the hairs for a week.
Initially, it was necessary to choose the color and shape. I hesitated between radically black and gray-black. In the arsenal of a good master a lot of colors of paint, with which you can create almost any shade that the client wants.
I didn’t want redheads, I don’t like this shade at all, and I constantly try to get rid of him in my hair. Mixed black and gray (more black), picked up the shape that I liked, and started.
During the procedure, I was lying on the couch, the process took about 30-40 minutes. Feelings are not pleasant, but too painful, I would not call them. Then I sat down and the master made adjustments in this position.
There are several options for applying tattoo – you can apply paint in the form of a solid line (it is easier and faster), and you can use the technique of feathering. For me, the best option was a mixed version, because, my eyebrows are pretty dark, thick and almost the same color as the paint.
After the procedure, the skin around the eyebrows was slightly swollen and reddened. In some cases, there may even be a slight swelling. The color is initially very bright and dark, which should not confuse you.
Days 5 after applying the paint, eyebrows should be lubricated with a fatty agent — etonium or calendula ointment (a penny in a pharmacy). Within a few hours, the painful sensations disappear, and feelings of tightness and dryness appear, it is here that fat ointment comes to the rescue. These days it is important not to scratch your eyebrows, although it is very difficult to hold back.
On the 5th day, I began to go crust, under which my new eyebrows coquettishly exposed.
Due to the fact that some of the muscles of the face could be strained or the paint lay unevenly, the master usually prescribes a correction procedure two weeks after the first session.
Repeatedly and carefully considering the new eyebrows in the mirror, it seemed to me that on the bridge of the nose symmetry was broken a little, literally a fraction of a millimeter. The master noticed some more irregularities and corrected them in about 15 minutes.
Having decided on the procedure, do not neglect safety issues. Remember that the needle that the master uses must be disposable. Otherwise, it is likely to become infected with a dangerous disease. Also, the master must have disposable gloves.
Another aspect that is not very dangerous to health, but, nevertheless, frustrates very much. Surely, you have repeatedly noticed that tattoos and tattooing change their original color over time.
The reason is paint quality. Inexpensive and, as a result, not very high-quality paint is likely to change its color. This is what causes bluish, greenish and orange eyebrows instead of gray, black and brown.
I have never regretted joining the ranks of lovers of permanent makeup. Already 4 (four!) Years, I do not know what it is to tint eyebrows. And even without eye makeup, they give the face some clarity and brightness. Yes, the color has become quite a bit lighter, but it looks organic and natural.
In theory, such a long tattoo should not hold. A friend-master said that my case is sporadic, and perhaps even that such an effect is related to my GU at that time, who knows. Usually eyebrows retain the look of the year two.
The cost of the procedure of applying permanent makeup varies depending on the level of the salon, the master and even the country. For example, in Kiev, the average cost is 1600-2400r. (400-600grn.), This also includes the cost of correction.
Now I plan to make a permanent make-up of the eyelids, I really like the eyes of my mother, who turned to the same master. By the way, on my mother’s eyebrows, the paint held on for two years, and on her lips – almost three.
And how do you feel about permanent makeup eyebrows?
