WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US... We always enjoy our time spent connecting and educating the people who care enough to come.
I enjoy talking clients through every procedure because it's super important to EDUCATE you, in order to have the most realistic expectations. After all, isn't an educated client the happiest client of all?
We often don't have a lot of time to spare talking on the phone, so this is a great opportunity to come and relax while we answer your questions and getting to know each other's goals. So come satisfy your curiosity in a FUN environment where you'll meet other people who also share similar interests. It'll be like a girls night out, unless you're a guy. Hey... Men need brows too!
Since this is an educational experience. be sure to bring a list of all of your questions and learn what permanent makeup can (and cannot) do for you.
You will not experience hardcore sales... but we may share some of our other procedures if you show an interest. However, we want you to feel no pressure because we only want to help and we have no expectations of you other than to want to learn.
Seating is limited, and you must register on line to select a date for the class. This will give us an accurate head count for the meeting. The class should be scheduled a MINIMUM OF 1 WEEK prior to your first permanent makeup session.
Consultation Appointments may be reset to any later date, without consequence or penalty.

Skin Allergy Patch Test – Step by Step . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . BACK TO TOP
STEP 1 CLEANSE:
Wash a small area of skin on the inside of the elbow or behind the ear. Rub area briskly with an alcohol pad. Allow to air dry.
STEP 2 APPLY PIGMENT:
When the test area is dry, apply a TINY drop of pigment to the cleansed area using a sterile Q-tip. Important: Use the SAME color from same lot/batch# as will be used during treatment.
STEP 3 PRICK SKIN:
Using a lancet or sterile needle, prick the skin through the drop of pigment (as if to remove a TINY splinter). Prick 10-20 times in a small circle about the size of a mustard seed - NOT A PENCIL ERASURE! Prick just long enough to deliver some color into the skin.
STEP 4 MONITOR:
Monitor the area for the next 72 hours. The skin may itch and or sting slightly upon application, however it should not burn or feel intensely painful. Itching may continue. This is normal part of the healing process, so don’t worry.
STEP 5 FOLLOWUP:
Follow-up with your client after 3-5 days to inquire about the condition of the tested skin patch.
Analyzing the Skin Patch Test Results
As previously stated, most clients will have a slight sensitivity, stinging or itchy feeling to the test upon application, and itching may remain as the skin heals. This is normal and not a sign of an allergic reaction. However, you should not experience burning or severe irritation that they consider unbearable.
*** SIGNS TO WATCH FOR: WELTING, OOZING, SWELLING, REDNESS AROUND TREATED AREA.
RESULTS: No irritation
ACTION: GREEN LIGHT GO! This skin patch test did not present any signs of allergic reactions. It is ok to proceed with scheduling the cosmetic tattooing appointment. (See warning below).

ACTION: YOU ARE NOT A CANDIDATE FOR COSMETIC TATTOOING: This skin patch test demonstrated signs of allergic reactions. You must consult your physician for further treatment.
WARNING: A negative test is NOT a guarantee that a future reaction will not appear. Your body candecide at ANY point in the future, to become allergic to almost anything. It depends on the state of your immune system.
