Cosmetic tattooing, which can also be known by the outdated and inaccurate term “permanent makeup”, is a procedure that involves injecting pigment into the dermis layer of the skin for a semi-permanent enhancement. While the concept has existed for centuries in many forms, it wasn’t until the 1980s that cosmetic tattooing began to gain popularity in the US.
In those early days, pioneering professionals used the same inks used by traditional body tattoo artists. These inks were designed to last a lifetime, and often came with long-term issues like migration, fading and discoloration. In the 1990s, a new generation of pigments specifically designed for the semi-permanent makeup industry began to emerge. These pigments were designed to be more natural looking and to fade over time more gracefully. As a result of these advances, cosmetic tattooing became even more popular. Now, it’s a widely accepted method to enhance lips, eyebrows and eyelashes.

There are so many benefits to cosmetic tattoo enhancements, from saving time and money on makeup to providing a lasting solution to sparse eyebrows, lashes and thin or uneven lips.
