Over time, permanent makeup fades very slowly, usually over several years. Finally, it disappears altogether. Above all, it replaces the daily application of makeup, saving time. There is no need to invest your hard-earned money into buying expensive eyebrow pencils to help you achieve your desired shape and colour. Makeup is a temporary fix. The permanent effect is not permanent. Thanks to recent advances in cosmetology, no product can provide long-lasting results. On the other hand, it is difficult, time-consuming and unpleasant to correct the harmful effect. Before you undergo a permanent eyebrow makeup procedure, you need to find a great permanent makeup artist.

Permanent makeup has been gaining attention for a long time, and it has recently become more and more accessible to many women. The permanent makeup procedure is safe and helps women look well-groomed for a long time. Since nothing lasts forever, the effect of such a solution lasts for 1 to 2 years.

However, long-lasting results always depend on the subsequent eyebrow tattoo aftercare quality.

The deeper the pigment injection, the more painful it is. Tattooing is therefore painful and unpleasant. A discharge of lymph and blood accompanies the procedure. Permanent make-up, on the other hand, does not involve any discomfort. Guarantees complete painlessness with a thin, tiny needle that only inserts superficially. It has become a massive advantage of cosmetic brow tattoo. Of course, artisans use anaesthetic creams or ointments to reassure their clients. But they are not necessary. From our experience, I can say that many clients fall asleep during the procedure. If a client is suspicious, cites a low pain threshold or is very anxious, anaesthesia can be applied twice: before and during the process.

When can I wash my face after eyebrow tattooing?
The “no wetting” requirement is probably the most significant inconvenience of the rehabilitation period. It’s, therefore, a question of concern to anyone considering permanent eyebrow makeup. Why? The answer is simple: the crust formed on the skin after the procedure preserves the pigment, helping it to take root. If the crust is removed, Most of the dye will come out with the lymph. Therefore, an essential thing in post-procedure microblading aftercare is to be careful with the crusts. Of course, you can damage crusts while sleeping or wearing clothes, but the main danger is moisture.

Most importantly, you can’t get your eyebrows wet after tattooing. How long the healing process takes, and therefore the “dry period”, depends on the characteristics of the body. It usually lasts from 7 to 14 days.

To understand how long you can get your eyebrows, you must observe the area during the healing period. Immediately after the tattoo, there will be slight redness and swelling. On the third day, there will be crusts on the eyebrows, and on the seventh, to the tenth day, there will be slight desquamation, a normal body reaction to an invasive intervention. In conclusion, after the peeling process, you can safely take a shower and visit the swimming pool and sauna without restrictions!

How much is eyebrow tattoo cost?

This service is quite expensive. However, the price of permanent make-up depends on several factors. Firstly, which type of procedure do you choose? For example, microblading eyebrows, in which the technician manually traces each hair, can cost from A$600 and up. Powder brows cost in Melbourne from A$500 and the combo brows from A$800. Remember that any method requires correction, which is recommended one month after the first treatment. Secondly, the penalty is paid separately and is usually 50% of the full-service cost.

Although the price issue is very relative, the studio and the craftsman’s experience counts. First, a highly skilled artist can charge several times the price due to his name and brand. The price will also include the consumption of materials, salon rental and staff salaries. If the pigments are high-end, they don’t come cheap either. It means that the costs must pay off. In some salons in the capital, the cost of permanent eyebrow tattoo makeup can reach A$1000 and even A$2000. However, eye tattooing in the CBD can start from A$300. All this is entirely subjective.

How to find the right Cosmetic Tattoo Artist?

Some cosmetic tattoo masters work from home. Those affected by covid restrictions in Victoria find it difficult to pay high rent for eight months of isolation. It makes sense that cosmetic eyebrow tattooing services are much cheaper in such circumstances. By monitoring the market in Australia, we were able to set a price of 450 AUD for well-done microshading eyebrows tattoo. Alternatively, lip cosmetic tattoo in Melbourne can start at 450 AUD and go up to 1500 AUD.

However, You should always check the portfolio of artisans to reach your desire result. However, affordable services are always a risk. In conclusion, women should understand the experienced craftmaster will fit the safety concept and have at 3 to 5 years background.

But there is also a ‘middle ground. Permanent makeup artist Olha Po in cosmetic tattoo studio Face Figurati Studio has relocated from Europe. Newly opened, she is not yet well known, but many clients already trust her. She charges very little for her services. An example of this is permanent makeup at our studio. The artist’s ambition and desire to expand the client base motivate quality services. The prices here are adequate (from 450 AUD), and the quality of services is high.





Well, which salon and which master to choose is up to you. We don’t recommend saving on the cost of the procedure by selecting a trusted master.

The artist’s ambitions and desire to expand the client base are the motivators for high-quality services. Here, the prices are adequate (from 450 AUD), and the quality of services is high.

Most popular eyebrow permanent makeup

Although there are over ten different eyebrow techniques in our studio, we will introduce you to four modern eyebrow tattooing techniques that are very popular in Melbourne and Australia. They are well established amongst artists and clients.


Microblading eyebrow is a settled salon treatment that allows you to correct the shape of your eyebrows. The stylish “adds missing hairs” using a special pen scalpel with a fine needle, injecting pigments into the upper layers of the dermis. Microblading brows have recently appeared on the beauty services list but have become popular immediately.

Powder Brows

Powder brows tattoo allows you to emphasise the natural shape and place the necessary accents, e.g. to intensify the connection, lengthen the eyebrow or make it more expressive at the base. With shading, it is also possible to give the desired shade to already drawn eyebrows, which is especially important if it is necessary to correct previously.

Feathering Eyebrows

Feather Eyebrows is an eyebrow colouring procedure using a tattoo pen to inject pigment under the skin. The technique dates back to ancient times: Cleopatra and even the familiar people of Ancient Egypt did pigmented tattoos. In China and Japan, people drew on the body by hand. This technique has a similar approach to microblading but differs in the style of the strokes.


Microshading a permanent eyebrow make-up technique in which the artist uses a thin pen to make many small dots in the gaps between the hairs but does not try to fill in the contour. The result is a smoothly shaded line, like the eyebrows tinted with shadows.

Combination brows

Combination brow tattoo are probably the most detailed and complicated way to draw eyebrows. However, the result is also impressive in its naturalness and aesthetics. The name of the technique speaks for itself: hair by hair. At the same time, it achieves a natural brow density and looks as organic as possible in the chosen shape.

Ombre Brows

Ombre Brows, also known as ombre powder brows with a dark gradient pigment line from the bottom to the top of the brow. The treatment refers to a semi-permanent procedure to shade the eyebrows to improve their shape and fill in areas of imperfection, creating a gradient effect.

What is the difference between Microblading and tattooing?

1. Application area

Firstly, microblading and tattooing are permanent make-up techniques that allow for a long-lasting bright eyebrow effect. However, there is a difference between the two. Tattooing can do in different ways on the eyebrows, lip blushing, and eyeliner, and feather eyebrows (microblading) is done only on the eyebrows. Salons that offer lip tattoo usually refer to tattooing or its variants – the powder brow tattoo technique or spraying. Read on for the reasons for these restrictions in the microblading areas.

2. Microblading never left scars

The eyebrows microblading technique involves applying micro-incisions filled with pigment to the skin. Multiple micro-incisions appear on the skin, resembling hairs filled with the correct shade. The craftsman applies these micro-incisions to the skin in a random pattern to achieve a natural-looking effect, creating the typical sloppiness of natural eyebrows. When the eyebrow feathering technique performance is correct, the artist may gain the most natural-looking result possible. This technique is suitable for girls with thin or naturally thin eyebrows.

However, a lot can go wrong during the procedure: 

  • from the incorrect choice of pigment
  • to too thick “hairs”, which can be drawn by an artist.

Another fake story is that new hair will not grow back with deep cuts because the hair follicles been damaged. That’s why it’s essential to choose a good artist. Study his portfolio and, if possible, see the work before and after the procedure and a few months later.

3. Permanent makeup is a tattoo

The connection between permanent makeup and tattoos becomes clear right from the name. Although there are many techniques, and the result and naturalness of the image will differ depending on the chosen method, the artist’s principle is simple: the upper layers of the epidermis, in the form of eyebrows, are subjected to tattooing. If the artist tries to work in deeper layers of the skin, it will remain on the surface without going deeper into the epidermis. As a result, a tattoo looks exactly like a drawing with pigment distributed on the skin, but it is not so easy to trace individual hairs with a tattoo machine.

4. Persistence

Cosmetic tattoos and microblading differ in their durability and longevity. Microblading lasts about a year, while tattooing lasts several years. The longevity of a permanent makeup tattoo depends on the chosen technique, the professionalism of the artist and the pigment used. With time, after the microblading procedure, the dye may fade or even disappear from the skin.

The durability depends on how deep the dye injection into the skin during the tattoo treatment. It is worth saying that deeper does not mean better in tattooing. Usually, the master’s work in deep layers of the skin turns out to be unpleasant for girls, which we have already written here.

5. Effects

The unpleasant consequences of permanent makeup and microblading are also different. In the case of microblading, there are fewer of them. The worst that can happen is terrible craftsmanship and fuzzy tattooing with cheap pigments. Feathering eyebrows is easier to remove from the skin as this technique doesn’t allow the dye to penetrate too deeply into the epidermis.

Changing the colour of the eyebrows to blue or red is the most common complaint of girls. Unfortunately, over time, uncertified and cheap pigments used, especially black ones, take on a blue tint – this is often the case with old tattoos. But with tattooing, when not done right and the pigment is not selected correctly, there are usually many more problems. You can read more about contraindications and tips on the FAQ page.

But with tattooing, if it performs incorrectly and the pigment is selected, there are usually much more troubles. Changing the eyebrows’ colour to blue or red is the most common complaint of girls. Unfortunately, not certified and cheap pigments used, especially the black ones, take on a blue tint over time – this often happens with old tattoos. More information about contraindications and advice you read on the FAQ page.

eyebrow tattoo procedure

Permanent eyebrow makeup is harmless for your hair! The pigment only penetrates the uppermost layers of the skin without affecting the hair follicles – they are located much deeper.


Eyebrow tattoo last from 1 to 3 years. How long the eyebrow tattooing lasts in the skin depends on many factors: the immune system (if the client is rarely ill, the immune system works well – it removes the pigment faster)

Eyebrow tattooing (permanent makeup) can be called a successor to tattooing. It’s also a new pigmenting technique that differs from tattooing perfomance, the duration of the effect and its appearance.

In reality, permanent eyebrow make-up is one of the most painless facial procedures ever, as the forehead contains a minimum of nerve endings.

What is the cost of the eyebrow tattoo procedure? On average, the cost of eyebrow tattoo procedures in Melbourne is A$500-A$1000. Touch Up will cost 50% from the first treatment.

Most modern specialists suggest that a laser is the best way to remove permanent makeup. It’s due to the advantages of the laser procedure: The laser effectively targets the pigment particles, destroying them. Subsequently, the lymphatic system eliminates crushed pigment.

Eyebrow tattooing is a cosmetic technique that uses tattoos as a means of creating make-up-like drawings, such as eyeliner and other permanent colour enhancers on the skin of the face, lips and eyelashes.

A permanent eyebrow tattoo’s result depends on the preparation and aftercare quality causing harmful effects. It is necessary before the procedure:

Firstly, permanently restrict alcoholic drinks for 2-3 days and exclude Energy drinks. All this affects the immune system and the general condition of the organism;

Secondly, 3-4 days to stop taking antibiotics, hormonal and blood thinning drugs;

Thirdly, 2 days before the procedure, start taking anti-allergy medication if you are prone to it;

Also, during the week before the procedure, do not pluck eyebrows, do not exfoliate, scrub, and do not paint eyebrows with paint or henna.

Follow-up care is required after the permanent eyebrow makeup procedure. Proper skin care will recover quickly and without problems, and the effect will be correct and beautiful. Quality and effective care consist of the following:

  • Daily use of moisturising and healing products at least 3 times a day. It helps to avoid thick crusts and dry skin;
  • In addition, hand hygiene. During all treatments, should have clean hands;
  • Finally, wipe your eyebrows only with paper towels or natural, lint-free cloth.
  • Firstly, peel off crusts on your own, scratching your eyebrows when itchy;
  • Also, perform cosmetic procedures for one month after the process;
  • In addition, sunbathing or being in direct sunlight for a long time;
  • Also, visit a steam bath;
  • In addition, visit the swimming pool for the first week;
  • Finally, do not engage in vigorous sports to avoid excessive sweating.

As a reminder, swollen and reddened skin in the first hours after the permanent makeup session is typical. After some time, they finally disappear. Peeling after crusting and darkening of the pigment is also expected.

Correction helps to prolong the effect and reduce imperfections after the first treatment. With correction performance one month after the first tattoo session, the effect lasts at least 1.5 years. If it’s not complete, be prepared to repeat the whole procedure after 6-12 months.

An eyebrow tattoo is perfectly safe, but like anybody intervention, the procedure carries a certain amount of risk. In some cases, it can be harmful, but the danger is straightforward to avoid if simple rules are followed.

The crucial differences between the semi-permanent and conventional tattoo in the traditional sense lie in the pigment used and the depth of the introduction. For cosmetic tattooing, colouring is unique and more modern. Permanent makeup pigments are dense, chemically compounded and practically unaffected by the body. It’s made on a mineral basis and has a natural composition. So the body breaks them down and excretes them quickly.

The fundamental difference between permanent makeup and classic tattooing is the depth of pigment injection. During tattooing, the dye does inject under the skin to a depth of one and a half millimetres. Not deeper than 1 mm. In this case, there is a risk of affecting the hair follicles. That’s why women with tattooing might miss eyebrows. With permanent eyebrow tattooing, the pigment is an introduction to the upper layers of the dermis. There is no risk of damaging hair follicles, and the eyebrows grow back without problems.

To answer the question of how long you can not wash the eyebrows after the tattoo, experts recommend sticking to the “dry period” for about 7-10 days. During this time, the skin heals superficially, and the crusts that have formed fall off on their own.

Eyebrow tattoos can remove using an acid remover. Artists inject acid under the skin to the depth of the colouring substance, where it starts an active biochemical reaction. It’s a penetrating chemical formulation with pigment-like components.

Pregnancy is on the list of contraindications for tattooing. The vast majority of tattoo artists will refuse to carry out the procedure. The reason for this will be the need for an anaesthetic gel. The anaesthetic is strictly contraindicated for pregnant and breastfeeding women as it contains lidocaine. It enters the woman’s bloodstream and can harm her and the unborn baby.
