Lita Brow Boutique is known for its realistic approach to cosmetic tattooing and Lita only wants the best results for you. Clients have the option to have a separate consultation before the procedure or the option of sending through pictures of the area to establish if the procedure can be done. We request that these pictures are of your naked brows, no filters, and no makeup on brows to allow us to assess thoroughly.
Some clients may not be a suitable candidate for cosmetic tattooing. Before booking in for an appointment with us please ensure that you have read through the list below.
A week before the cosmetic tattoo we also advise to stop using any products with Retin A, AHA or actives. If you are on Roaccutane or any other medication that may affect the skin please contact us to discuss.
If you have been previously tattooed or have any additional questions please feel free to contact us before booking and we can answer any queries.
Cosmetic tattooing is not suitable for the following:
Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers
Extremely Sensitive Skin
Excessive Sebum (very oily skin)
Skin that has recently had any laser or cosmetic treatments.
PRE-CARE FOR TATTOO
Limit blood thinners, coffee or alcohol for the week leading up to your tattoo. Limit sun exposure to face. No exercise on the day of tattoo before or after. No facial peels or skin treatments, Botox or Injectables 14 days before or after tattoo. If you are on medication or topical vitamins please disclose - call us 0412600018 before you book.
DO I NEED TO PURCHASE MY OWN ANESTHETIC?
Yes, and your own anesthetic must have your name clearly labelled on it from a compounding chemist, and you must apply yourself one hour prior to appointment time. Please call us if this is not possible. Throughout the procedure, our artists can reapply as needed.
HOW WILL I LOOK AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
You will look like you have had a very dark eyebrow tint. There may be some slight redness but, generally speaking, no swelling.
Lips and eyeliner could swell slightly post-procedure but recover within 24 hours. If you do get continued swelling, please apply a cold, dry compress to the area intermittently.
Please don't book a tattoo immediately prior to an event or travel to allow the skin to peel and heel.
Over the first week you will notice the tattoo will deepen in colour before lightening and peeling. This process can last anywhere from 5-10 days.
IS THERE A CANCELLATION POLICY?
Yes. Please go here to read it in full.
WILL I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT WHEN BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT?
Yes. All appointments booked online require a 30% deposit that will be deducted off the total price on the day of appointment. Balance due on day of procedure.
POST-CARE FOR TATTOO
No water, no sun, no swimming or gym, no excessive sweating or exercise for a week post tattoo. No chemicals, topical vitamins or makeup over the top of tattoo. Makeup can be worn but not over the fresh tattoo for a week. Nothing on the brows except for the aftercare balm given for a week post tattoo. Dry healing for oilier skins unless advised otherwise. We discuss aftercare at length in the tattoo session so please make sure you understand our instructions before you leave your appointment.
CAN I BE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING FOR COSMETIC TATTOOING?
Cosmetic tattooing procedures are not recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
CAN I WEAR MAKEUP TO MY APPOINTMENT?
Yes. We will wipe the area before placing on the anesthetic.
BOTOX And My brows
We recommend you book your botox appointment at least 14 days before or after your initial brow tattooing appointment.
CAN I BRING FRIENDS OR CHILDREN TO MY APPOINTMENT?
No. We regret you cannot bring a friend or child. Our salon is small and not child friendly. Due to Occupational Health & Safety, only the tattooist and client can be in the room during the procedure. If a friend accompanies you to the appointment they will need to wait for you at one of the many nearby cafe's or other establishments.
