  • What is PMU?

    • PMU stands for permanent makeup. First and foremost, this IS a tattoo. The pigments used, however, are different from traditional tattoo ink and are designed specifically for permanent makeup services. PMU only goes about 1/3 of the depth of traditional tattooing, resulting in a softer and more natural color. The pigments can be metabolized, meaning  they will have a more natural fade over time (as opposed to the blue/grey look of old school PMU).​

    • Fading will vary from person to person! Not only based on their skin and lifestyle, but also how well aftercare is followed- Not only at your initial "base-building" session, but for each touch up and color boost following as well.

  • How do I know which brow service is right for me?​

    • There are a number of factors to consider when choosing your brow service. Listed at the top of this page, you can see the three types of brow services that I offer and the general restrictions of each. If you are still uncertain, you can book the "Help Me Choose" option on my website here.​

  • Can men get their brows done as well?​

    • ABSOLUTELY! PMU is not just for women. No matter the person, we will always work to find a brow style that suits your preferences, which includes more masculine styles too!​

  • Does it hurt?​

    • Everyone's pain tolerance is different, but you may experience some temporary discomfort at the beginning of the procedure. Once we finish the "first pass" and open your skin, we can apply a secondary numbing agent to the area to help make you as comfortable as possible. Remember, this is a tattoo!​

    • If you have had issues in the past with numbing agents, including but not limited to lidocaine, our numbing agent may need extra time in order to work, or may not work as well for you as others.​​

  • What kind of experience do you have?​

    • Kat is experiences with over 10yrs within the beauty industry, ranging from Hair Stylist, Makeup Artist, Salon Manager, Trainer, and Special Effects artist for short films.​

    • After a one-year apprenticeship under the direct supervision of the studio owner, Kat obtained her Body Art/Tattoo License. She is also certified in bloodborne pathogen training, and regularly takes classes and trainings to further her skills in the beauty industry.

  • Skin is unpredictable and everyone is different!​

    • Results will vary from person to person based on anything from skin type to lifestyle and so much more. It is almost impossible to replicate someone's exact results onto another person.​

    • Each individual is unique in style, preferences, skin type, lifestyle, etc. and there is no "one size fits all" in permanent makeup. Most important to remember is that your first session is what is considered your "Brow Building" appointment. A touch-up will generally be required in roughly 4-8 weeks after your first appointment, and regular maintainence will be required every 1-3 years to keep desired results. While we will work to achieve symmetry, this may take several sessions to obtain desired results. A "perfect" result is not a realistic expectation after the initial application.

  • It can take multiple sessions to achieve your desired results!​

    • Sometimes it​ doesn't matter how great your artist is or how well you follow aftercare procedures. You skin may absorb better or worse than the last person. This is why we call your first appointment your "Brow Building" session. 

  • Do Not Expect Perfection!​

    • We can aim for symmetry, but keep in mind the average person's face is not naturally symmetrical. If we were to copy and paste your brows, they would more than likely look uneven! Through your sessions, we will work to build symmetry and give the illusion of "perfect".​

  • What should I expect at the first session?​

    • ​Initially, the color will appear much darker and/or vibrant in comparison to the healed results. Immediately after the procedure, your brows will also appear bigger and uneven due to swelling. Unfortunately, when our skin swells, it does not typically swell evenly. For this reason, I will always include you in the mapping process and show you exactly where our outline is before beginning so you know what to expect. This also gives you an opportunity to ask more questions and be more included with your end results. Together we will walk through any style/shape/color preferences and find something that works well for you (your bone structure, your existing brows, your face shape, any preferences and what is most realistic to achieve).

    • Usually, within 5-7 days, your will see your brows shrinking and fading. By the time they are healed, you will see about 20% shrinkage, and 50-70% fading/softening of color. Additionally, the pigment will fade naturally over time. The pigments used are specifically designed for permanent makeup procedures, and designed to fade in a way that is natural to our skin, as opposed to the blues/greens you may have seen from much older forms of PMU. Sun exposure, oily skin types and highly active lifestyles may further impact the amount of fading over time.

  • How old do you need to be?

    • As this procedure is a tattoo, by law you need to be a minimum of 18 years of age and have a valid ID with you at the time of your appointment. If you cannot provide a valid form of ID at your appointment, we will need to reschedule for a time where you are able to provide one.

  • Should I expect my brows to be swollen?​

    •  Clients with sensitive skin are more prone to swelling, but every client should expect some swelling. The severity will vary from person to person, but should dissipate within 24-48 hours.

    • Some clients have described the area as feeling "heavy" after the procedure for about a day or two.

  • What can you tell me about the type of pigments you use?​

    • ​Pigments used are proudly cruelty-free, PETA certified, and vegan products that are never tested on animals.

    • If you have concerns about sensitivities or allergies, contact us for a patch test. Skin Sensitivity Testing should be performed a minimum of 7-10 days before introducing pigment into the skin.
