Unfortunately, a lot of conditions can heavily compromise the effectiveness of cosmetic tattooing. It is important to inform your artist if you have any existing medical or skin conditions. You may still be eligible for the procedure, but we will need to adjust your expectations. Results will vary from person to person.
Are you pregnant or breastfeeding?
Unfortunately you can not get any cosmetic tattooing if you are pregnant. If you are breastfeeding it is advised to dump your milk for 24 hours after the procedure. You can also contact the Australian Breastfeeding Association to get their advice.
Do you have diabetes?
Please get a Doctors certificate to state it is well controlled. Diabetics take longer to heal.
Are you taking fish oil, blood thinners, any skin thinning medications or harsh skincare products?
Bleeding too much throughout the procedure can push out the colour. Please speak with your artist if you have any concerns.
Do you have low iron?
Low iron can cause your tattoo to fade sooner or your body to reject it all together. If you’re unsure, please start taking iron supplements 2 weeks before your appointment.
Have you had any botox or fillers?
If you have had botox in your brow area, you need to wait until 4 weeks after. Try to get your brows done first.
Lip tattooing can not be done within 6 months on fillers.
Are you prone to cold sores?
Lip tattooing can cause an outbreak if you are prone. You will need to get some antivirals before the appointment.
Do you have oily skin?
You are not a good candidate for microblading. The strokes can blur and they fade sooner. Combination or Powder is a good option but you will still need to come for more regular refreshes.
Do you have any bloodborne viruses?
Please notify us.
