What is cosmetic tattooing?
Cosmetic Tattooing, also called 'Micropigmentation' is a popular well-tolerated cosmetic treatment involving the controlled insertion of safe colour pigments into the dermis layer of the skin, by the means of small, disposable needles.
What is the difference between cosmetic tattooing & body tattooing?
While tattoo ink and permanent makeup are very similar, there are some major differences:
Tattoos are made using ink while permanent makeup uses pigments
Tattoos and permanent makeup are also done with differing equipment.
The ink used in tattoos reaches deep into the subcutaneous layer (hypodermis) of the skin, making tattoos a permanent option. Permanent makeup only penetrates the dermis which is why, although called permanent, they only last up to 5 years.
