"This style of tattooing can be so subtle that even close up your best friend might not even notice. For me, it's all about bringing out and accentuating the natural beauty in the ladies who come to me. Gone are they days of hideous 80s and 90s style of tattooing. Cosmetic tattooing is having a revolution, and there are so many new methods out there to enhance your beauty, that sometimes I feel like I need them all myself. I've trained with some of the best in the country right now and I'm also lucky enough to now consider them my colleagues and friends. Their influence will always be present in my work, but at the moment I'm really enjoying pushing the boundaries and following my own style."
Interview with Amy Allen
Carmen Beauty Editiorial
Ladies come to me often with messed up brows, some from years ago and some only a few months old as well as everything in between. My job is to give them something that I feel proud to put my name to. Having the option to be able to include laser removal really helps me to open up a world of possibilities. Making the best of a bad job isn't always the answer and I've never been completely happy with a straightforward cover up. Cover up work is usually bigger, darker and perhaps still not symmetrical, when it comes to brows anyway. I would highly suggest to anyone who is unhappy with their cosmetic make up to consider laser. I can see 3 to 7 ladies a week nowadays who come specifically because of bad Microblading. Laser removal is pretty simple to do if you have the knowledge and experience. Most times my ladies don't even bleed and hardly even feel the laser. And in just 4 weeks your skin is ready to have the first stage of cosmetic tattooing and a step closer to your perfect brows.
Correction work consultations are free of charge.
We only offer cosmetic tattooing to 18s and over.
Due to the way our bodies heal after the first treatment, all of our semi permanent make-up requires a top up treatment which is carried out at 5 to 10 weeks after the first treatment, depending on the type of treatment you have.
Our cosmetic tattooing procedures now include a free top up treatment. (Excludes Microblading)
Microblade Brows Top up is payable at the treatment and is priced at £75
The Ombre Brow
This amazing technique offers a great shape and great colour results and is our most popular brow.
Ombre brows are taking the semi permanent make up world by storm and are set to over take from microblading in 2018.
The last much longer than microblading and fade in a pleasing way so you get great brows for longer.
The more you top up the darker and longer they will last. Or for a more subtle look the technique can be used to get brows that offer just a hint of colour but define the shape.
This treatment is £350
Natural Bladed Brows (microblading)
This delicate technique is used to simulate hairs and create a fuller more shapely natural looking brow.
Microblading is not suitable for all skin types, due to its delicate nature. Please expect brow design to shrink in size by 20% and to lighten in colour by 40% during the first 10 days after treatment.
*Microblading alone will never look like make-up brows
*Microblading will have "gaps" to simulate natural hairs
*Microblading pigment will need to be 2 to 3 shades darker than your natural colour to allow for fading
*Microblading is an art form and a process to create your perfect natural brow. We don't work from stencils.
*Microblading will need to be slightly bigger than your natural brows to allow for the shrinkage effect.
