I was inspired to have my eyebrows tattooed when a client came in for the first appointment of the day with what I thought was heavy eyeliner on. Not the usual for my first client of the day. Often I have someone that is showered but in their pj's or sweats and no makeup.
Discussion revealed that Kelly at the K Club in Red Deer did the work. After meeting with Kelly I decided to go ahead with my own permanent makeup.
The seven pictures show the transition of my permanent makeup from natural blond with minimal natural colour, two sessions of tattoo, plus one session of touchup and the current look of one year later.
The nicest part about permanent makeup is; #1. Saves time. I am not drawing them on in the morning. #2. Permanent. Always there and fading away at a slower rate than the three hours when drawn with a pencil. #3. Great line definition. I admit it, at my age I can not draw this nice of a line.
The response I get from people is always a look of surprise when I reveal my only tattoo is on my face. They must look, and I think they do look good. The hard part of the process was getting past that month of having them looking a bit too dark.
In ten years I may have them redone.
