I had this done 48 hours ago. While it is fresh, there are a couple of things to note. First- do NOT consider doing the eyeliner without heavy anesthetic. I had it done in a surgery center, with numbing shots on eyebrow and eyeliner and was given pain meds when I got there as a Pysician is on site.
The shots do hurt and burn, but make things very tolerable. This is not something you shop the price or use a coupon! It is permanent on your FACE! Take your time, see photos, get all the info you can and make an informed decision on using a very experienced tech. Know that you will be very bruised and look hideous afterward.
Plan this on vaca or at a time you can work from home. Makeup will NOT cover the bruises in the first 72 hours. I can tell I will be thrilled under all the bruises and ink. I can't wait until the final result appears. Also touchups should be at no charge as you may need touchups and you should negotiate that initially in the price. Additionaly touch ups are imp. because it is something you can add to, but not take away, so heavy tatooing may be something you regret later.

Day 4, still bruised, but much better. Now can cover with some makeup and it just looks like my own make up is smeared. No pain or discomfort at all after the first day. Will need touch up, but was told I probably would. Very, very pleased thus far. Eyebrows are brown, eyeliner is charcoal grey. Scabbing is starting to fall off and reveal what is underneath. The pic is from day 2 and will take another in a few days.

OK, had the touch up 2 weeks ago and it was sooo worth the extra time hiding! I took arnica this time for several days before and I only bruised on 1 eye and it was gone in a week. The results... amazing. The msg... a touch up on eye and eyebrow tatooing is really important for definition and filling in any missed or faded spots. Even if your are thrilled with the first go round, you will be so much more thrilled with the touch up. I am so happy with my result! My only regret is not doing this years ago.
:( My permanent makeup is so faded. I really wanted a good 5 years, but no such luck
