Permanent Make-up


Otherwise known as Cosmetic Tattooing, Pigment Implantation or Micropigmentation – this method enhances and gives definition to eyebrows, lips and eyes.

This is a process whereby pigments are placed under the skin by means of superficial scratching. Pigments used are organic and hypoallergenic. They are safe to use on skins with allergies to make-up. Needles, needle caps and mixing pots are sterile and disposable.Anaesthetic creams and gels are used prior to and during treatment. Shape, colour and intensity are discussed prior to treatment.


Experienced since 1988 Cathi is a full time cosmetic tattooist. She is also experienced in work on scarring (including post operative), hypo- and hyperpigmentation, creating areola after mastectomies or breast surgery.


A feathered application gives a natural look to:

  • Uneven eyebrows
  • Sparse eyebrows that need filling in
  • Brows that are too fair
  • Brows missing due to alopecia or chemotherapy

Pigments are matched to each individuals colouring or a specific brow pencil colour, ranging from light blonde to black.

Shapes are measured and drawn on before work commences.


Different applications can create different looks:

  • Giving definition to pale lips
  • Adding fullness to thin lips
  • To help correct uneven lips
  • Or replacing lipliner pencil, mixing to a colour of your choice.

Pigments will be mixed according to individual requirements, from soft lip tones to darker more defined colours. A specific lip pencil can be matched.

Shapes are drawn on before commencing.

Full Lip Colour gives colour to pale lips or for lipstick that lasts all day! For this we recommend a dental block.


This involves enhancing the eyes: top, bottom or both, either a soft natural look or a more defined line.

It is helpful to people with:

  • Allergies to make-up
  • Bad sight, who struggle to apply make up
  • Loss of lashes through alopecia or chemotherapy
