Cosmetic Tattooing

Cosmetic tattooing, also known as micro pigmentation, is a popular cosmetic process just the same as getting a permanent body tattoo.

Using a hollow vibrating needle the technician applies pigment into the top layer of the skin.

Each time the needle penetrates the skin a droplet of pigment is released into the hole in the skin that the needle has made, creating a shading or colouring to define that particular area.

Cosmetic tattooing is usually used for facial cosmetic purposes such as permanent lip liner, eyeliner, eyebrow defining or even redefining the appearance of a nipple after breast reconstruction.
