Permanent makeup is considered a virtually painless procedure with almost no adverse effects. But to minimise the risks, it is best to consult a certified technician. This article will tell you what the procedure is and how to prepare for it, if it hurts to do an eye veil tattoo, and how to avoid possible complications.

Today, tattooing refers to applying permanent dyes with fragile needles into the superficial layer of the skin. Modern permanent eye makeup does not require renewal for up to a year but is easily corrected and removed if you want to change the image.

Does it hurt to get an eyeliner tattoo?

Do many people worry about whether it hurt to get eyelid tattooing? These fears are natural, although in vain. Of course, much depends on the specialist’s skill, the tools used, the chosen technique of permanent eyeliner makeup, the area of skin coverage and the individual characteristics of the body. But in most cases today, the masters use anaesthetics, applying them to the skin before the procedure and during it. Lidocaine, part of such preparations, has an immediate effect and completely relieves the discomfort.

Does it hurt to get an inter eyelid tattoo? The delicate and delicate skin in this area may be sensitive, but modern anaesthetics are excellent, and the procedure is also completely painless. If there is discomfort, you will not have to endure it for long, as an experienced craftsman requires a small amount of pigment and very little time to create a perfectly straight arrow.

But the level of comfort during the procedure depends not only on the skill of the expert, tools and materials used. Individual body features play an essential role as well. Girls with high pain thresholds can easily tolerate even long sessions. At the same time, those with sensitive skin may feel discomfort, in which case the specialist uses a more significant amount of anaesthetic.

Who has contraindication to the treatment?

Strictly prohibited eyeliner tattooing, eyebrows and lips are in the presence of certain medical conditions. The list of contraindications includes the following:

  • cardiovascular disease;
  • blood clotting disorders;
  • malignant tumours;
  • diabetes mellitus;
  • infectious diseases;
  • acute respiratory infections;
  • epilepsy;
  • conjunctivitis.

Does it hurt to get an arrow tattoo during pregnancy? As hormonal changes can affect skin sensitivity, it is generally not recommended to have the procedure done during this period. 

How to minimise unpleasant consequences?

Your first meeting with the artist will not only tell you if it hurts to get an eyelid tattoo but also how to minimise any possible complications. There are several rules to follow before and after getting tattooed, so you won’t be disappointed with the result.

Preparation before permanent eyeliner tattooing make-up:

  1. The day before the procedure, do not drink alcohol.
  2. On the day of the session, avoid coffee and energy drinks.
  3. Do not use a sauna, do not sunbathe for a week.
  4. Three days before the procedure, do not take any medication that affects blood clotting.
  5. If you will do a lip permanent a week before the session, start taking Acyclovir to avoid a herpes exacerbation.

Eyeliner tattoo aftercare:

  1. For the first few days, do not wet the skin in the tattoo area.
  2. Do not touch the face with your hands.
  3. Apply dry cold to reduce swelling if necessary
  4. On the third day, the skin in the pigmented area will start to peel. Don’t remove the “Crusts”. It must fall off on their own.
  5. Within a few days, you can treat the skin with chlorhexidine or other antibacterial agents that do not contain alcohol.
  6. Bathing, going to the beach and sauna are not allowed for a fortnight.
  7. Before and after complete skin healing, do not go out in the sun without a hat and sunglasses. Be sure to apply sunscreen before going outdoors.


Possible complications

Any treatment involving disruption of the integrity of the skin can have adverse effects. Therefore, choose a suitable artist and the permanent make-up studio carefully. The experience of the specialist directly depends not only on whether it hurts to do eyelid tattooing but also whether there will be complications. Professionals always open the package with disposable sterile instruments in the client’s presence, work in a mask and gloves. All this minimises the risk of infection.

Many people think that swelling is one of the signs of complications. However, the accumulation of lymph under the skin is a natural reaction of the body to the intervention. It will completely disappear in a few days after the session. There will constantly be swelling after the tattoo, even if the procedure is performed by a professional. In rare cases, an anaesthetic may provoke an allergic reaction.
