Dear #AYA,

Who would you say is a good candidate for tattoo procedure makeup?

Pretty Intrigued

Dear Pretty Intrigued,

Tattoo Procedure Makeup can appeal to people for a variety of reasons. Primarily, Tattoo Procedure Makeup may be appealing for people who don’t have the time required to apply and refresh their makeup throughout the day. It can provide relief for those who suffer from hair loss, thinning hair, or alopecia. Some people who are unable to enjoy traditional makeup and cosmetics due to allergies or skin sensitivities may also turn to Tattoo Procedure Makeup. Tattoo Procedure Makeup can help those who want to look their best during physical activities like sports, swimming, hiking, biking, or working out without having to worry about “sweating off” or reapplying their cosmetics. Additionally, this procedure can assist people who have difficulty applying makeup daily due to vision problems or dexterity-related conditions like arthritis.


Dear #AYA,

What are the most common areas that Tattoo Procedure Makeup is applied?

Scoping it Out

Dear Scoping it Out,

The most common areas for Tattoo Procedure Makeup include areas on the face. For example, Tattoo Procedure Makeup can help accentuate the eyes as a form of eyeliner, provide additional fullness, shape, or color to the eyebrows, or add definition or color to the lips. However, in some cases Tattoo Procedure Makeup can be applied elsewhere on the body to help camouflage scars. Additionally, women who have undergone breast reconstruction surgery after breast cancer can use Tattoo Procedure Makeup for areola pigmentation to achieve a more natural-looking result.


Dear #AYA,

Is Tattoo Procedure Makeup a one-size-fits-all treatment as far as coloring goes, or will I have options?

Just Curious

Dear Just Curious,

You can absolutely pick which colors you prefer. Before your treatment, we will evaluate your skin tone and provide different color options based on your preferences. Typically, blacks and charcoals are used around the eyes. Our skilled providers will work to find colors that complement the natural tone of your skin. Keep in mind that the color will appear darker immediately following your treatment but will settle over time. Here at AYA, we only use pigments specially formulated for cosmetic tattooing, which are softer than traditional tattoo pigments.

When performed by a skilled provider at AYA, Tattoo Procedure Makeup can have a dramatic effect on your complexion while doing away with the need for makeup every morning. If you have any additional questions about this treatment don’t hesitate to come into any of our locations for a complimentary skincare analysis appointment.
