About Permanent Eyeliner

Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to deal with eyeliner that smudged, smeared or rubbed off?  Well, with permanent eyeliner that can become a reality!

Permanent eyeliner is a tattoo process that can be done on both upper and lower eyelids.  The lash line can also be filled in, making the lashes appear darker and thicker.   The liner can be applied thin and natural or thick and dramatic, it’s your preference.  A variety of colors can be used, however, shades of brown and black are certainly the most popular.

When you decide to have the eyeliner tattoo procedure done, it is of utmost importance to choose your permanent makeup artist with care.  Take the time to interview a few artists and look at before/after pictures of work that they have done.  This is not a decision to make on the spur of the moment.  Choose an artist who is qualified and has done many, many procedures.  Make sure that all needles are sterilized and used only one time and that the artist follows the guidelines for using personal protective equipment to prevent infection and avoid cross-contamination.

The thinnest skin on the human body is found on the eyelids, where the epidermis is approximately .05mm thick.  If done by an inexperienced hand, the eyeliner outcome can be less than optimal.  The liner can end up blotchy, color can migrate, and tissue damage can occur.  So, talk to several permanent makeup artists, view their work, ask a lot of questions, and don’t get in a rush to have the procedure done.  Any reputable artist will be happy to talk with you before you make a decision.

After having permanent eyeliner done, there is some after-care to think about.  The eyelids can be puffy and tender and may stay that way for a few days.  They typically feel like you’ve been crying a lot.  Noticeably tender, maybe a bit red but not terribly swollen or painful.  The artist you choose should provide you with after-care instructions so make sure you know what to do and what to expect before you leave her office.
