How many sessions are needed?
Two treatments are usually needed. The first touch-up appointment is included up to 6 weeks. With most procedures the color heals dramatically lighter after the first week. Some clients prefer this, while others opt for a bolder look. At your touch-up appointment, we will assess the color retention and make adjustments as necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your cosmetic tattoo does not heal perfectly the first time, do not worry! We can always go darker and add more density at your next appointment.
Can I exercise after getting a cosmetic tattoo?
You must avoid working out for 7 days following your cosmetic tattoo appointment. Walking is allowed.
Can I get tattooed if I am currently doing chemotherapy?

How long does it last?
There is a common misconception that PMU is permanent. These treatments are semi-permanent, and do require some maintenance to keep the color looking fresh.
