Cosmetic Tattooing - Look like yourself, only better!

More and more women are taking advantage of cosmetic tattooing. One of the only Board Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professionals in South Carolina, Nancy Ruth specializes in cosmetic tattoos for women who want the most natural appearance possible.

Many of Nancy Ruth's clients are tired of applying eyebrow pencil day after day. Or they don't want their eyeliner to smear every time they cry at a movie or rub their eyes. Perhaps they want lasting color in their otherwise pale or thin lips. Here are a few reasons women are choosing and enjoying cosmetic tattooing:

What type of cosmetic tattoo procedures can be done?

Are cosmetic tattoos really permanent?

Technically, cosmetic tattoos are considered permanent because the color is implanted into the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, fading can and often does occur, requiring periodic maintenance.

How long does the procedure take?

The initial procedure will generally take approximately 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours. Follow up procedures usually do not require as much time as the initial procedure

Is it painful?

While you may feel touch and pressure your procedure should be well worth any mild discomfort you experience. Cosmetic tattoos are of a skin invasive nature and therefore you may experience some discomfort. This may vary according to each individual's pain threshold. There are topical anesthetic creams used to control the discomfort.
