Permanent Makeup, Permanent Cosmetics, Cosmetic Tattoo
Permanent Cosmetics, Permanent Makeup, Micropigmentation and Cosmetic Tattoo are terms all describing the same thing; the tattooing of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin with needles. Other terms such as “semi-permanant makeup,lineology and dermalogy” are sometimes used wrongly to mislead the consumer to believe they are receiving something other than a tattoo
There is no such thing as a “dermalogist or lineologist”. And at this point there is no such thing as “Semi-Permanent Cosmetics” applied by needles. These are deceptive terms and relay false information to the public. Be aware of the terminology your practitioner uses. Don’t be fooled by fancy terms you don’t understand.
The truth is, any application of pigment into the skin is tattooing. While it is definitely a specialty within the art of tattooing and requires specialized supplies and training, it is still tattooing. Some might like to suggest that it’s not tattooing, but if color is placed in the skin with needles, there’s only one thing that can be; a tattoo
Fabulous Permanent Makeup requires knowledge of the skin, structure of the face, traditional color theory as well as color theory as it relates to the living canvas of the skin. Color takes on an entirely different personality once placed in the skin, which also has color of its own.
It also requires a thorough understanding of traditional cosmetic makeup application. While it is a form of tattooing, again, it is a specialized form. I do not practice traditional tattooing and would not attempt to do body art. My specialty is cosmetic tattooing.
I have spent 2 decades studying the face, its structure, balance, characteristics and personality. Everyone is unique and individual. What looks perfect on one person may be completely wrong on another.
