Obviously you should not have laser hair removal done anywhere near a tattoo... That kind of laser is seeking out pigment and can blacken your permanent makeup and even badly burn the skin over them. Are other kinds of laser safe?

Every laser will damage the permanent makeup. You should either plan on either staying away from the permanent makeup with laser or going back to get the permanent makeup redone after laser. The makeup can also oxidize with laser treatments including turning orange, grey or darker colors after treatment.

I've put off getting the permanent makeup for a few months while I take care of the rest. Thanks, folks.

The area you need be most careful of are the lips. Lasers and Lip pigments don't coexist well! The Titanium Dioxide (white) is a blending color in most lip pigments, and lasers will turn this color black! We don't want black lips! As for your Eyeliner and Brows, no laser should be used in close proximity to these areas ever.During any laser procedure the eyes must be covered or loss of vision could occur. You may use a barrier ointment over the brows also such as Vaseline to prevent any exfoliating peels to be absorbed. And always always warn the person who is working on your skin that you have PMU. You need not wait, just communicate with your providers.
