What Is Permanent Eyeliner?
Also known as an eyeliner tattoo, permanent eyeliner is a treatment you can receive that replaces the need to wear eyeliner each day. Permanent eyeliner involves using a tattooing technique to apply ink along the lashline to create the appearance of eyeliner. (This ink is permanent, but has to be touched up every 3-5 years.) Eyeliner tattoos can be applied in a variety of styles, from extremely thin and natural-looking liner, to thicker lines, and even winged eyeliner.
How to Prepare For Your Eyeliner Tattoo Appointment
If permanent eyeliner is something you’re considering, have a consultation with a professional technician first to weigh your options and learn more about the service. There are a few styles you can choose from and once you’ve decided on the eyeliner that will suit you best, you can move forward with your treatment. It’s always recommended to bring in inspiration photos.
Prior to your actual treatment, stop using any sensitizing skincare products (like retinol or glycolic acid) around the eye area for a full week before your appointment to avoid irritation. You’ll want to come to your appointment with clean skin that’s completely free of makeup. Many artists also recommend avoiding coffee (or any caffeine for that matter) on the day of your treatment to help you relax and avoid twitching.
What to Expect During Your Appointment
The technique of eyeliner tattoo has been perfected over the years, and (despite what you may have heard) has become a comfortable treatment. The service can last anywhere from 45 minutes to one hour, and the area is numbed before application. You will feel a slight buzzing along the lashes where the needle is applying the ink—the skin is slightly broken during the first pass of the needle, but you won’t experience bleeding or discomfort if you are properly numbed. Eyeliner tattoo has come such a long way from when your mother, aunt, or even grandmother got it and expressed how painful it was. When it first became a popular service, the pain was a deterrent for many people. Ton touts her technique is quite relaxing, “The clients that I’ve done eyeliner procedures for all tell me their comfort level is high and pain is barely there, some say they could sleep through the entire procedure with me. You feel a slight tickle on the lashes but not much else.”
