Cosmetic Tattooing – Practical Applications

Cosmetic tattooing is not a modern or new age fad. It a very ancient technique that has only quite recently been added to the list of cosmetic procedures performed in clinics by cosmetic professionals and not only by tattoo artists. In most western countries permanent make up, eyebrow tattooing, eyeliner and lip liner tattoos, also known as Micropigmentation (or micro pigmentation), are done by professional plastic surgeons, cosmetologists and highly skilled aestheticians.

Although cosmetic tattooing can be performed for vanity, as in my case, there are many people who use this technology to restore natural features that have been lost due to certain diseases such as multiple sclerosis or the results of hair loss after a chemotherapy or for those who have a condition known as alopecia and have lost all facial hair.

It is also a practical solution to makeup application for seniors who do not have steady hands, or for those who are visually impaired and can’t apply their own makeup on a daily basis. Many women are also allergic to cosmetic products and although they desire to enhance their natural beauty with a little touch here and there are unable to do so and therefore opt for cosmetic tattooing.

Permanent Make Up and Sensible Vanity

Cosmetic Tattoo

For those of us who choose cosmetic tattooing or permanent make up for reasons that appear to be purely vanity based, there is a sensible side to it too. Active professional woman may choose eyebrow tattooing or permanent eyeliner or lip liner to better manage their time. Many career oriented woman need to look great but have demanding careers that don’t permit them to fuss and fret over their makeup everyday.

Permanent make-up can save time and frustration for a busy professional who gets up early, cares for family or children and then must look “put together” at the office. For business women who travel a lot it can be a godsend to arrive at an airport just in time for a meeting and be already made up, eyebrows perfect and eyeliner un-smudged so that with a dash of lip gloss she’s ready for the boardroom.
