“It is a ‘selective’ art form of traditional tattooing.”

This is a nonsurgical micro procedure known as “Micropigmentation.” The organic pigment is used with no iron oxides in tattooing, as they are safer and more beneficial for implantation. The color is custom created during the consultation and then skillfully implanted into the dermal layer of the skin to simulate natural or well-defined makeup. Handheld single use disposable needles are used for sanitary purposes.
