GETTING READY FOR YOUR COSMETIC TATTOO
Thank you for choosing The Browtini Bar! We look forward to working with you to create the perfect cosmetic tattoo for your unique facial features. First, here’s a few tips on how to prepare for your new ink before visiting the studio.
BOOKING YOUR APPOINTMENT
Note that we often experience high appointment volumes and may close our books for periods of time. We appreciate your support and patience.
Please book your first appointment using our online Booking page for all brow services.
Touch-up appointments can be scheduled by contacting us here.
To respect the time of our artists, a non–refundable deposit is required to schedule and secure your appointment and is deducted from the total price. This deposit is to ensure that you are committed to undergoing a cosmetic tattoo. If you cancel or miss your appointment, you will forfeit your deposit. Please email email@example.com or call 682.215.2020 if you need to reschedule or change your appointment time.
For best results, we recommend the following:
Do not consume alcohol, caffeine or blood thinners (aspirin, ibuprofen, Niacin, fish/primrose oil) 48 hours before your procedure to avoid excess bleeding.
Avoid the following facial procedures 2 to 3 weeks before:
Botox and fillers
Chemical peels (Glycolic, Pumpkin, Alpha Hydroxy, Salicylic Acid)
Laser Facials, both ablative and non-ablative, including Fraxel, Co2, and IPL laser treatments
Exfoliation and retinol product.
Complete the following cosmetic procedures prior to your brow tattoo:
o Brow waxing/shaping (2 days in advance)
o Brow tinting (1 week in advance)
Avoid sun/ tanning bed exposure for 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your procedure. As your skin exfoliates from a tan or sunburn, it will take the tattoo pigment with it. If you arrive with signs of sun exposure, we will unfortunately have to reschedule your appointment and you will forfeit your deposit.
On your appointment day, we ask that you come prepared to be as relaxed as possible for the duration of your cosmetic tattoo.
Eat a light snack 20 to 30 minutes before arriving
Wear relaxed clothing that you can sit and lay down in for an extended period of time
Here’s what to expect from your experience upon arrival:
Consultation & The Browtini Bar Signature Brow Design: (30 min) This is the opportunity to meet with your artist and create a plan for your tattoo. As artists, we will work with you to design your custom cosmetic tattoo to highlight your natural features. Our Browtini Bar Signature Brow Design includes not only the shape outline, but also each individually hand-drawn hair stroke. From there, we choose a pigment match based on your skin tone and hair color. We’ll also discuss care and healing during this time.
Numbing: (10 min) Prior to the procedure, a topical anesthetic (prescription strength) is applied. We also layer an additional numbing agent during the tattooing to increase your comfort.
Tattooing: (Duration depends on service) Your tattoo artist will carefully implant pigment to mimic the appearance of natural hair within the designed shape.
