We maintain that cosmetic tattooing procedures have a wide range of benefits for every person. But, there are always exceptions to the rule. There are certain occasions where we are unable to perform our permanent makeup procedures. Other times, we need to show a bit of caution to protect the wellbeing of our clients. Who can get cosmetic tattooing

Pregnant or nursing

If you are pregnant or nursing, we are unable to perform any cosmetic tattooing procedures as it does not comply with our code of ethics.

Firstly, we are entering into the bloodstream with anaesthetics and pigments. Everything that we inject will be passed to the baby while in uterine or during nursing. Secondly, hormones are constantly in flux and this can have detrimental effects during the healing process. Because of this, we are unable to work on anyone who is currently pregnant or nursing, with no exceptions.

If you have had a history of cold sores. 

While we are able to provide cosmetic tattooing procedures to those who have cold sores, there are some caveats.

Cold sore history is only relevant during lip blushing tattoos. If you have ever had a cold sore, even if it was 30 years ago, you will need a prescription from your physician for an antiviral medication. You may as well get two so you are ready and prepared for the follow up appointment. Or we are able to safely dispense the oral medication to you under our medical directive

The herpes virus can live dormant in the body for many years. During the tattooing process, we cause trauma to the lip which can cause the virus to react, causing an outbreak of painful cold sores that will significantly hinder the healing process. About half of our clients fall into this category and have had great success preventing cold sores using the antiviral.

While there is almost no limitation to who can benefit from cosmetic tattooing procedures, please keep in mind these few exceptions when calling to book a consultation.
