What Is Permanent Eyeliner?

Eyeliner tattoo is an advanced permanent makeup procedure that recreates the look of wearing eyeliner.

Using an electric device specially designed for cosmetic tattooing, the artist inserts semi-permanent pigments of natural origins into the skin of your eyelids, thus ‘permanently’ drawing on your eyeliner in the shape you want.

The whole procedure is generally considered to be non-invasive since it involves no actual downtime and you can carry on with your life right after it, but it does entail a few weeks of healing, as your skin needs to recover from the micro-trauma."

What Can I Expect After the Eyeliner Tattoo

Don’t get your eyeliner tattoo wet for the next 7-10 days. This does not mean you shouldn’t clean the area, only that you should protect the area during showers, and avoid swimming, saunas, steam baths, and activities that cause excessive sweating.

Don’t use make-up on or near the area for 7-10 days, until your skin is completely healed. You’ll need to remove the makeup, and harsh cleansers and rubbing can affect pigment retention.

Don’t touch, rub or pick any of the scabs or dry skin that you might see on your eyelids. Everyone’s skin is different, so the amount of scabbing varies.

Don’t sleep on your face.

Don’t get any facials, peels, Botox, or fillers for at least 4 weeks.

There is no actual downtime after the treatment, so you can carry on with your day, but don’t be surprised if you experience some swelling and redness."
