Wouldn't Do It Again - San Diego, CA
on 27 Mar 2012
As a professional cosmetic tattoo artist I always do an extensive consultation with my clients. Yours should have told you that fading will be expected. All color fades.The sun is the biggest factor but also the condition of ones skin and the skill of your technician(a note to the flaking off experience) Body art fades slower because primary colors are used. In permanent makeup tertiary colors are used to mimic makeup. The lighter your color the sooner it will fade. As far as the scarring, your technician was not properly trained. Overworking the skin should never happen. The public needs to recognize as should those looking into learning permanent makeup, that this is a tattoo. It cannot be learned in 5 days.I am in hopes that Body Art type apprenticeships will someday soon be the norm for those looking to get into the trade. The public needs to be educated. Do your homework. Would you go to any cosmetic surgeon?, no. Ask allot of questions, look at photos of their "healed" work. Ask them if it is there's.Ask about the length of training and do they seek advanced training. Don't trust your face to just anyone.
Permanent Makeup can be beautiful and even undetectable, when done properly.
