Permanent Makeup (Cosmetic Tattoos) - Fort Worth, TX


Permanent makeup comprised of tattoo pigment is a great alternative to traditional makeup. If you suffer from sensitivities to traditional makeup, have decreased vision or medically-related hand tremors or stiffness that keep you from applying makeup sufficiently, or if you simply want to save time in your daily routine, cosmetic tattoos may be right for you. Even when the physical process of applying makeup is not an issue, our Fort Worth clients are thrilled with permanent makeup that does not run or streak with sweating or swimming.

Permanent makeup is applied with the same tattoo machines used to create body art.

Surgical Techniques


For patients with skimpy or no eyebrows, using makeup to hand-draw eyebrows can be a time-consuming hassle, and difficult to draw consistently every day. A cosmetically tattooed eyebrow design creates a natural and consistent look for the patient.

Upper eyeliner

If you struggle with applying eyeliner because of shaky hands, or you simply don’t have the talent to achieve the look you want, permanent eyeliner along the upper eyelashes can make uneven lines and smudges a thing of the past. You’ll have a perfectly symmetric look, as subtle or dramatic as you wish.

Lower eyeliner

When properly applied, lower eyelash eyeliner makes eyes appear brighter and fuller, but it can be challenging to apply correctly. Lower eyeliner is also prone to smudging and settling in the lines under the eyes, accentuating wrinkles and making you look older. Cosmetic tattooing is perfect to create smudge-proof, effortless, eye-opening liner along the lower eyelashes.


Full lips

If constantly reapplying lipstick throughout the day is taking too much time and effort, you may want to consider permanent makeup for the full lips. Lips can be pigmented with a neutral shade or in your favorite color so you’ll always be picture-ready. As an added bonus, you can apply traditional lipstick over the cosmetic tattoo, which will increase the staying power of the traditional lipstick.

Lip liner

As we age, the definition around our lips diminishes and many of us resort to applying a daily lip liner. With permanent cosmetic lip liner, the lips appear fuller, have clear definition, unevenness is balanced, and there is no more worry of lipstick bleeding.

About the Procedure

Once the client has thorough communicated their wants and concerns with the tattoo technician, the permanent makeup is applied. Cosmetic tattooing can be performed with a traditional tattoo coil machine, a pen machine, or a hand device. The device chosen will be based on the location of the tattoo and the design to be created. After the procedure, the client is provided with aftercare instructions specific to the area that has been tattooed.
