Frequently Asked Questions.
If you feel like you need more clarification or have any concerns please feel free to contact us below.
Does Cosmetic Tattooing Hurt?
Pain thresholds vary for each individual person. Cosmetic tattoo treatments obtained during your menstrual cycle may increase sensitivity and discomfort during your procedure. Every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable throughout, such as the use of the highest grade and strongest numbing cream compounded especially for the use of clients at Brows By Hannah.
Most clients fall asleep!
How Long Does It Last?
Due to the unique nature of skin types there is no definite answer to this, most clients find that their results last between 1-2 years before finding themselves wanting a refresh of colour to keep the hair strokes looking crisp and fresh.
After your first appointment it is normal to have areas of the eyebrow or lip that has not retained the colour as solid as other areas, this is completely normal and is why a second appointment is always necessary to address any areas like this and to ensure flawless results. As we do not tattoo as deep into the skin as a traditional body tattoo, this means that the tattoo is more semi-permeant but gives us a more hyper realistic hair like effect. Alterations can be made at touch up appointments as of clients like to start very conservative then build upon the brow at each additional appointment as they feel comfortable.
Lifestyle factors such as sun exposure, use of active skincare ingredients, chemical/ laser peel contact, smoking, thyroid medication and oily skin will fade your cosmetic tattoo at a faster rate.
Final results cannot be guaranteed as each unique skin type will retain pigment differently and fade at a different rate. Multiple sessions are completely normal for cosmetic tattoo procedures. Every new procedure requires a minimum of 2 visits.
Can I bring someone to my appointment?
Unfortunately due to health and safety regulations, we cannot accommodate anyone under 18 years old in the salon.
Can I cancel or reschedule my appointment?
All bookings that are made require a deposit to hold that appointment for you. If you need to cancel or reschedule you must give at least 48 hours notice prior to your appointment and we will simply carry your deposit forward to your chosen date. Failure to give the correct amount of notice will result in your deposit being forfeited. If a client is more than 20 minutes late the deposit is automatically forfeited.

I Have An Existing Cosmetic Tattoo
If you have a pervious cosmetic tattoo and would like this re-worked a photo MUST be emailed prior to booking an appointment to assess if the previous tattoo can be covered up. Results on such cases cannot be guaranteed and additional touch ups maybe necessary at an additional cost.
What should I do before my appointment?
It is important to refrain from taking any blood thinning medications 72 hours prior to your appointment. These generally include medications such as Vitamin E, fish oil, aspirin and ibuprofen. For lip tattooing it is recommended that you come to your appointment with your lips EXFOLIATED and hydrated. If you have a history of cold sores you must take antivirus medication (from pharmacy or GP) 2 days prior to your appointment.
How will I look immediately after?
In the first few days post procedure your eyebrows will appear thicker, darker and may have a reddish tinge to them. During the first and second week they will fade dramatically lighter then the colour will return and settle into the skin.
With Lip tattooing, for 2 days post treatment the colour will be very bold before fading to be lighter in the first and second week.
