The Best Surprise is a Pleasant Surprise!

COSMETIC TATTOOING can be a tricky process, especially in the wrong hands.

 

HAVING REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS and understanding why we do what we do... WILL MAKE OR BREAK YOUR EXPERIENCE.

 

We hope that this information will be helpful enough to avoid confusion and give you a sense of peace and foster a long-lasting bond us. 

Woman at a Desk
OPTIMIZE YOUR RESULTS  - PLAN AHEAD OF TIME! TO ALIGN YOUR EXPECTATIONS WITH OUR REALITY

The first step in becoming a happy client is understanding that our process is different than most other artists. We want to make sure that you understand that it takes a mutual effort to achieve optimal results. We also want you to know (upfront) that  by booking an appointment with us, you are telling us that you have READ, UNDERSTAND & AGREE WITH OUR PROCESSES. THIS WILL HELP . This ensures that you become an informed client. 

THIS WEBSITE OUTLINES ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW!

As you read on, take notes as you discover information that pertains to your situation. , Setting phone reminders may help you remember things that may be pertinent to YOUR journey. Click on the menu bar for pages that interest you, or if you would like to become even more acquainted with us and our style of work prior to your procedure, we would like to invite you to join in on one of our MONTHLY CONSULTATION EVENTS where all of your questions can be answered.  For starters, the levels of application are as varied as the numbers of people who want it... what may be "just enough" for one person, may be barely noticeable by another.  The same principle applies to flaws.  

 

OUR UNIQUE APPROACH TO BROW DESIGN...  CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT WHY. 

We require a conservative approach even for those wanting a dramatic look... because dramatic BLUE is not normally a great look.  So we start light at first to observe how the color heals into YOUR skin. This approach works great for most people. Others are frustrated that they need more follow-up sessions. We would prefer that everyone heal in with perfect results, however this is not real life. So we have designed an approach to protect everyone - because NO TWO CLIENTS will experience the same reactions or outcomes. Since we can never know (in advance) just how YOU will do, we create a light (BUT BEAUTIFUL) application on our first session. By the time the skin has fully healed, each client will have lost approximately 30-50% of the pigment. There is no way to predetermine the outcome for each client. Some skin just responds better than others... so please know that it may take some people longer to achieve their desired outcome, than others.  Once your results have fully HEALED, it will tell a story and will serve as a guide for future applications. 
 

WE PLACE ART IN YOUR SKIN!

You must understand that your skin is a biological organism that is moving and churning on a microscopic scale and will be fighting to remove what we just put in.  Add to that, all the various levels of self-care required. Some people follow all the rules while others will break all the rules. Some will even break out the peroxide to scrub out their new color. DO NOT DO THAT! Most likely, what you're seeing (when your brows seem bigger than life itself) is probably more inflammation than color! So... If you feel yourself move into freak out mode, just go back and admire those before and after pics! Take a breath... calm down... let it heal... and we will take the next steps at your follow-up session. IF YOU CANNOT CALM DOWN, CALL US .  : ) 

  • These guidelines are meant to HELP optimize the effects of your procedure. ​My thoughts are that every little thing you do all add up to help a procedure heal in "better "than if you don't do ANYTHING. You should know that even if you follow these instructions EXACTLY, it does not guarantee that you will have a perfect outcome.  And if you follow NONE of the guidelines, you COULD end up with great results... The body will heal, as it is programmed to heal. These suggestions may or may not help.

  • Each scenario plays out differently from person to person… just because it didn’t happen to YOU does not mean it won’t happen to your friend, mother, or sister.  And just because it didn’t happen before, does not guarantee that it won’t happen NEXT time.  

 

  • I do try to inform clients to help foster the best outcome, but really... I think each person's body and metabolism will determine each person's outcome, regardless of any amount of fussing you may or may not do... The body has ultimate say in how much color stays in and what gets kicked out. The best things you can do is keep the area clean and lightly moisturized. Cool, not hot... Dry, not sweaty...  With that said, please don't think you can push things by going swimming or taking long hot showers. I do know that THAT does matter!  

  • Please be aware, that when you book your appointment and sign your consent forms, you do so with prior knowledge that YOU HAVE READ AND FULLY UNDERSTAND OUR PROCESSES as CLEARLY OUTLINED - throughout this website.

The person who books without reading, just because Dominique Sachse came here, could be in for a surprise. Dominique came in fully informed and followed all protocols. She has great skin that took the pigment well and we used a conservative approach on her that took several sessions to achieve. See her videos! 

 

However, even if you do the same, you should understand that SKIN is not the same from person to person. So if you have any questions now please present them to us in advance by sending us a message, prior to your treatment. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

  • Don't be afraid. As long as you are a good candidate, AND PATIENT WITH THE PROCESS, we have the confidence and skill to get you to a happy place!  Please read through this website, please take notes of things that pertain to you and set reminders accordingly. Planning for cosmetic tattooing is more like planning for a medical procedure than for a haircut. We want to help to ensure you get YOUR best possible results. The healing process can be rocky for some, so be sure to read all about that as well! 

THE DOWNSIDE OF A CONSERVATIVE APPROACH:

The downside of a conservative approach means that you will most likely need follow-ups. Do you know who is MOST appreciative of this process?  THE PERSON WHO HELD THE MOST COLOR! This process prevented their procedure from falling off the cliff! So if your procedure is too light, we dodged a bullet. OUR MAIN GOAL FOR YOUR COSMETIC TATTOOING IS TO HELP MAKE LIFE EASIER We cannot make it perfect.

Unlike a hair or nail appointment, it takes A WEEK OR MORE for clients to plan. When you reserve your place on our calendar, no one else can book this time and we cannot just call in another client to take your spot if you cancel or end up not showing up for your allotted appointment time.

​During this time, we purchase supplies and arrange our time to merge with you. Our business model relies on serious minded commitment on both ends...

You may see the term "Brows 360" on this website.  This is a style, not a procedure.  All this means is that YOU do not have to try and figure out what you need. Our signature technique encompasses the ALL-AROUND BEST combination of Microblading, Ombre and Shading techniques to give you the brows that suite your face, personality and lifestyle!  

Multiple sessions are typically required for all procedures. Sessions should be spaced at least 2-3 months apart... Preferably 3 to make sure the skin has reached its final healed stage and the color is no longer changing.  For a lucky few, only one session is needed while most people will need more work which depends on a multitude of variables.

Completed work can last roughly 1-5 years, depending on individual circumstances.

IF YOU ARE UNDER THE CARE OF A DOCTOR:
  • PLEASE ASK YOUR PHYSICIAN IF YOU ARE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THIS TYPE OF PROCEDURE PRIOR TO SCHEDULING AN APPOINTMENT.  

  • If you have any organ, knee, or hip replacement that requires you to pre-medicate with an antibiotic, you will need to do that as well prior to cosmetic tattooing. Please ask your physician for clearance to do this!

  • Other antibiotics are not recommended within a week prior to or after a procedure as they can work against the retention of color. 

  • PRESCRIPTION Blood Thinners should not be discontinued without the doctor's permission but may cause extra bleeding. Extra bleeding will reduce the amount of color retention, however, more can be added at follow-up!

  • THIS IS A GOOD PLACE TO REMIND YOU ABOUT ALLERGY TESTING...

We always recommend that you get a test. Even though allergic reactions are extremely rare, and there is no scientific evidence for or against testing, my feeling is that if we test, we MIGHT catch a problem before it happens. 

SET YOUR OWN APPOINTMENTS ONLINE!
  • Consultations are recommended but are not mandatory if you are familiar with the process. 

  • Allergy testing is not mandatory either, but if you want one, and cannot come to the consultation meeting, you can schedule a QUICK TEST (FREE and can be booked online from this website). Testing should be performed a very minimum of 3-7 days, prior to your procedure date.  

  • Color Selection and Design work is not performed at Consultation. 

  • Meetings are held once per month in order to answer any final questions prior to your appointment and become more acquainted with us!

  • If you choose not to attend, we will assume that you understand and agree to all of our recommendations for planning, aftercare, and healing protocols...

  • Most of the important information is found on this website. 

SET UP YOUR FUTURE APPOINTMENT DATES AS WELL!  (Follow-up Maintenance): 
  • 12 weeks after the first session, a touch-up session should be performed to adjust any hair strokes or color that may have not adhered properly. The first procedure does not always stay 100% since this is done on the very surface of the skin.

  • If possible, please book your follow-up appointment the same day you ​book your first procedure, if you need to reserve particular dates.  

  • If you do not receive a confirmation via email, this means your appointment did not process, and you should try again until you get a confirmation. If you have trouble, please feel free to contact us through the booking tab. You may leave a message there.

  •  When you click on the BOOK NOW button above, you will be given an opportunity to select the artist of your choice and their available dates will populate on the calendar! 

PLANNING FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT DAY - PLEASE HELP US KEEP THINGS LOW STRESS! 
  • CLICK HERE to find out what to do on the days prior to your appointment. 

  • Having realistic expectations ALSO applies to your appointment time!

  • Creating a "PERMANENT MARK" on someone's face is a complex and personal thing that cannot be rushed.  

  • Some people require more time and focus than others... this is just the way it is. 

  • Just know that we are committed to providing THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE for everyone.

  • Your arrival time is not your START time. 

  • There is a 30-minute window in which to complete paperwork and ask any final questions as we start the numbing process. 

  • Appointments that are scheduled at 10 am are the only ones we feel safe in saying will start ON TIME, barring any unforeseen incidents.

  • Appointments set at noon or later may be held up due to a variety of reasons. 

  • If you have to wait, we ask for your patience while we take good care of the client in the chair.  

  • Avoid a TIME CRISIS on your end, by allowing a 3-4 hour window of time to complete your appointment. 

  • Do not plan anything right after your appointment just in case we are running behind.

  • Make a backup plan in case you have lunch or dinner plans.

  • Have someone scheduled as a backup to pick up your kids. 

  • Don't plan any first dates - on the day of your procedure.  : )

 FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS:
  • Schedule Follow up #1 and #2 at twelve (12 ) week intervals, following the date of your initial procedure. This keeps the application dates on track.   

  • 2-3 Weeks prior to your follow-up, check your permanent makeup. If you feel that everything is ok, and you'd rather wait a while, (or if something else comes up) you may reset your appointment. You may change, your date up to one (1) week prior to the date of your next visit. If you need to postpone, just search your emails for "Permetika" to find your most recent confirmation email. You will find a link there to reset your appointment. 

NOTE:  OUR CANCELLATION POLICY IS ONE WEEK.
  • We have to adhere to this policy in order to allow another person AMPLE TIME to prepare to fill the spot and to keep business running smoothly.

  • If you are a NO SHOW, your booking fee will be forfeited.

  • We will gladly reset your appointment one time as a courtesy because we all forget sometimes.

  • If you are a NO SHOW more than once, you must set a new appointment, which will require a new booking fee.

  • This policy shall remain in effect, no matter what the cause.

  • If you are not tech savvy or just not familiar with on-line booking, and do not know someone who can help you, we will be happy to assist you if you will contact us here at 713-443-8999.

  • Texting is preferred to phone calls because we are often working on procedures with clients.

ARE YOU RUNNING LATE? 
  • WE GET IT!  So no worries... We build in an extra 10-15 minutes to allow for this...

  • If you're running MORE than 15 minutes, we can still start and make a difference - but we may need to cut the end of your session short IF someone else is waiting.  

  • If you are over 30 minutes late, we will need to reschedule if we have a client scheduled after you. If not, I can usually be flexible. 

PHONE CALLS . . .

We welcome calls (but prefer texting as we are often busy helping clients!) We will return messages at our earliest opportunity.  If your call is sent to VOICE MAIL this means we are helping another client. It would be super helpful if you could send us a text instead of leaving a voice message... it'll be seen and responded to faster than VM.

 

QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR LOCATION:
  • As our location may change, please plan ahead and check our website for available locations. 

  • If you call for directions just before your appointment, we will probably miss that call - so be sure to enter our location into your phone prror to your appointment day.
