Why cosmetic tattooing fades over time and body tattoos last forever

Ever wondered how cosmetic tattooing fades over time but body tattoos are permanent? It’s a topic that’s not freely discussed and it is often one of the first questions we get asked by our clients. Most likely this subject was not really discussed during your course (unless you trained with us at SCHB) and you may not know how to answer your clients when they ask about this.
I’ve put together a thorough explanation for why and how cosmetic tattoos fade over time.

The Importance of Patch Testing your Clients

Patch testing - do we need to perform them for every single client? And if not then how do you identify which clients you should be patch testing? As the artist it is your responsibility to recognise the risk identifiers during your consultation process for each client and each type of service. The article below focuses on identifying the risks for cosmetic tattooing, microblading, and plasma fibroblast clients. Learn what to look for and how to patch test in this article.

Cosmetic Tattooing, Scalp Micropigmentation & MRI’s

It’s 2022 and one of the most requested courses so far has been for scalp micropigmentation. Popular amongst men and women it is quickly becoming one of the most in demand services in the field of cosmetic tattooing.

If you are offering or thinking of offering scalp micropigmentation as a service then it is important that you understand the risks and concerns of your clients.

Any beauty therapist who have considered adding plasma fibroblast treatments to their service menu will be able to tell you just how overwhelming it can be when choosing a plasma pen.

Eyebrow Tattooing : Realism in Cosmetic Tattooing

Are you a little sick and tired of seeing instagram perfect eyebrows? Perhaps you have clients who want a fuller brow but don’t want to look like they are wearing brow makeup. Microblading is certainly a great choice for natural-looking brows, but not every skin type is suitable for microblading, and unfortunately microblading does tend to lose its crispy sharp hair strokes during the healing process. Often, if the hair strokes are placed too close together they will eventually blur together and become undefined. Cosmetic tattooing is often overlooked in favour of microblading, but what if I told you that you can get BETTER and even MORE NATURAL looking results with only cosmetic tattooing? Read this article to learn more about how to achieve natural hair strokes which retain their hair like appearance with cosmetic tattooing!

Topical Anaesthetics in Australia

If you’re planning a career as a cosmetic tattoo artist, you will need to know the do’s and don’ts of using topical anaesthetics in Australia. It can be a confusing topic that is not necessarily covered in depth during microblading or cosmetic tattooing courses. I’ve personally found that most PMU artists are not really aware of the exact regulations around the sale and use of topical anaesthetic in Australia, even ones who have been working for years.
Unfortunately if you are busted using or buying topical anaesthetics against regulations you can face up to $10,000 in fines. Protect yourself, your clients, and your business by reading the following article on topical anaesthetics in Australia.

What to do if you hate your cosmetic tattoo

What to do if you hate your cosmetic tattoo

Occasionally we receive the odd enquiry from a client (someone else’s!) who is stressed out about their cosmetic tattoo. They hate it and want to remove it. Maybe they have only just had the tattoo done and they are worried about being stuck with it, and sometimes it’s an older tattoo that has faded but is not completely gone. Many people don’t realise that while semi-permanent tattooing is designed to fade over time, there is a portion of the pigment that may never completely fade by itself. So what do you do in this situation? There are 7 different things you can try before resorting to laser removal which is expensive, painful, and may cause more damage to your skin. Don’t panic and try these first 🙂

Microblading Results after 1 year

Are you (or your clients) hesitating to commit to cosmetic tattooing or microblading? I know it took me years before I decided to give it a try, and the reason why I was so cautious is that I did not know how my brows would look 6 or 12 months after having them done. What if they don’t fade and I hate them?

Eyebrow artists fill their portfolios with images of freshly done brows, but how will they look in a year's time when they aren’t so fresh anymore? No one shares these images freely so it’s impossible to find information on this topic.

Although I’m now a brow artist myself, I still remember the confusion and frustration at the lack of information available. So I’ve recorded my personal brow journey for your viewing pleasure. From virgin brows > present brows.
