This is a tricky question, as everyone has to start somewhere. I would suggest a more mature tattooist for a more mature woman though (a little more age identifiable).

Feathering is a technique for tattooing eyebrows. It is very fine and mimics the fine hair stokes.

I would say a better investment (lol)

How long Does Microblading Last?

Because Microblading is just a tiny bit of pigment (to create each hair stroke), it fades quite quickly. This will differ for different skin types, so for an oily skin type the microblading will only last about 9 months but for most skin types you can expect 12 months before needing the annual 'touch up' to freshen up this colour ( i personally offer this at half price for my existing clients and a little dearer for new clients to my business).

The common misconception about this procedure is 1. It is so close to the eye can it damage it and 2. Its got to hurt as the skin is so thin.  Good news ladies, again the numbing cream on this beautiful thin skin works a treat. There are not alot of experienced artists in this area at the moment so pick your artist wisely, so dont just google 'eyeliner tattooing near me' (you might need to travel for this one).

Cosmetic Tattoo vs Regular Tattoo?

A normal tattoo is applied with a much more assertive pressure at a much deeper level in the skin. Our beautiful cosmetic tattoo is applied with a gentle little machine and only very small amount of pressure. A normal tattoo will last a lifetime and a cosmetic tattoo will only last a few year max hence the 'semi permanent' name.


Unfortunately this is so common and the main reason why ladies put off making themselves feel and look more amazing (while saving heaps of time and cranky moments). There is a way around this... choose "Experience".... choose someone who works with your age demographic and skin type often (they have usually been through all issues that can present). Mature skin is most difficult.... young skins are easy to work on. Ironically my main demographic is 40+ ladies, ( like I said I can tattoo younger ladies that's easy), my mature ladies just burst at the seams with gratification and satisfaction at the end of a procedure because I listen to what you have to say..
