  • FOR LIPS: If you're prone to cold sores. (For clients who are prone to cold sores, we recommend you reach out to your physician for a prescription of anti-viral medication and start taking it 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time to prevent an outbreak.)


  • Please eat something about 30 minutes prior to your procedure.

  • Do not take any Advil or other blood thinners such as Aspirin, Fish Oil, Niacin, Vitamin E, and/or Ibuprofen, unless medically necessary, 48-72 hours prior to your procedure. Tylenol is permitted if you have low pain tolerance.

  • NO CAFFEINE, ALCOHOL, or ENERGIZING DRINKS at least 24 hours before the appointment. This can heighten your sensitivity.

  • NO EXERCISING on the day of procedure.

  • No contacts. Please wear glasses to your procedure. We recommend you to not wear contacts for 24 hours after the procedure.

  • Discontinue lash enhancements such as Latisse, or over the counter products such as Revita Lash, 5 days prior to your procedure.


  • Please come with soft moisturized lips for best results as dry chapped lips can produce uneven color retention. Recommendation: 3 to 4 days prior the procedure, apply Aquaphor, A&D ointment or Vaseline on the lips for 20 - 30 minutes, then remove the product and gently scrub lips to remove any dead skin. Afterwards reapply Aquaphor, A&D ointment or Vaseline onto the lips for another 20 - 30 minutes. Doing this once a day 3 - 4 days prior to the procedure will help your lips retain more even color retention/better results.

  • If you have a history of or are prone to cold sores, fever blisters, please contact your primary physician to obtain medication to prevent outbreaks. Lip tattooing can trigger this outbreak therefore having the proper medication before hand can reduce this possibility.




  • After the procedure, use a moistened paper towel and blot the eyebrows every 2-3 hours for the rest of the day. No special cleansers needed. Just stick with water.

  • Do not sleep on your face.

  • On day 2 and day 3, continue to cleanse eyebrows in this manner 2 to 3 times a day (using a moisten paper towel and blot eyebrows).

  • Do not drench the tattoo area in water or any kind of moisture. Refrain from allowing the tattooed area to get wet. This can cause the scabs to be soggy and fall off prematurely which can result in poor pigment retention.

  • Do not engage in activities/exercises that will cause your pores to open (no pools/lakes/beach, no sun, no tanning, no saunas, no sweating, no hot/steamy showers) until your brows are done peeling. It is ok if your brows get wet when showering but try not to drench it in water for long. Take quick showers and immediately blot the brows dry once you're out of the shower.

  • Do not use skincare and makeup on the tattooed area until the peeling process is complete. You are fine to apply your skincare/makeup throughout your face just keep it away from your brows. When cleansing your face, avoid using cleanser on the tattooed area.

  • Around days 4 to 7 the brows will start its peeling process. This typically lasts 3 days (on average). DO NOT PICK YOUR BROWS. During this time, if your skin is dry or itchy, you can use A&D or Aquaphor for relief. Remember: ONE GRAIN OF RICE SIZE FOR BOTH BROWS. No more than 3 times a day for dry to normal skin types. Oily skin types should refrain from using ointments.

  • Your brows should be done peeling around days 10-14. Once brows are done with the peeling process, it is normal for it to look light, faint in color, and/or color can appear uneven. Although the peeling process is done, the epidermis is still healing from within. You'll be able to see the true healed results once the epidermis is fully healed (approximately 4 to 5 weeks from the date of procedure).

  • Touch up sessions are needed in order to redeposit pigment into areas that the skin didn't retain pigment well. Please make sure to schedule your touch up session promptly at 6-8 weeks after the initial procedure. Waiting too long to schedule your touch up can result in more pigment loss from the brows and can result in more fees.


  • Do not touch the tattooed area.

  • Dry heal the tattooed area for the first 3 days.

  • Do not allow any moisture to come in contact with the tattooed area.

  • If you need to cleanse the area within the first 3 days, use a moistened paper towel and dab lightly.

  • On day 4 apply ointment twice a day. Use a thin layer.

  • Do not pick.

  • No makeup until the peeling process is complete.


  • Immediately after, the area will feel sore and will look quite intense. There may be some swelling and minor bruising; this will only lasts for 1-2 days. Lymph will leak from the tattoo to form scabs. You do not want these fluids to sit on your lips and form scabs. Gently wipe/dab your tattoo every hour with a wet cotton round and pat the area dry to ensure no fluids sit and form scabs. It is normal to see color on the cotton round after you wipe. You may ice the area if it is feeling tender or swollen after the procedure. Wrap an ice pack or a ziplock bag of ice in a clean napkin and place on the area for as long as desired.

  • On day 2 the tattoo will appear much darker as scabs begin to form. Minor swelling or bruising may still be apparent. The scabs will fall off within 2 to 5 days depending on your skin and diligence with aftercare.

  • Do not drench the tattoo with water/moisture. Refrain from allowing the tattooed area to get wet. This can cause the scabs to be soggy and fall off prematurely which can result in poor pigment retention.

  • Do not sleep on your face.

  • Do not use any cleanser, makeup, skincare products until the peeling process is complete.

  • Do not pick, scratch, or bite the scabs.

  • Keep the tattooed area moisturized (this applies to the lips only) at all times with the ointment given. Only a THIN layer is needed. Don't apply excess amount of ointment to the lips.

  • Do not expose your tattoo to UV rays or tanning beds for 4 weeks after the procedure. These things can alter the appearance of your tattoo dramatically.

  • Once the scabs have completely fallen off, you may apply makeup over the area and return back to your normal routine. Note that after the scabs come off your tattoo may have a milky/grey hue to it. This just means that the surface skin is healed but the underneath layers still need time to heal.

  • The true healed results can take anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks to show (10 to 12 weeks for dark lip neutralization clients). It is only AFTER 8 weeks (or 12 weeks for dark lip neutralization) that a touchup to the tattoo can be performed.

  • Please note that your tattoo will be softer and not as crisp when healed.Results will vary with each individual and are extremely dependent on your skin and how you care for it during healing. It may take multiple sessions to achieve your desired result.
