I'm tired of having to pencil in my thinning, disappearing brows once
or twice a day. Does anyone know anything about eyebrow tattoos -
effectiveness, attractiveness, price? Any danger or downsides? Advice
and recommendations appreciated!
A few years ago I had a mole removed from my eyebrow. It
created a bald spot which I got filled in with permanent makeup
(ie tattoo). I went to Yolanda of LeMor Permanent Cosmetics
(925-934-6020) out in Walnut Creek. I thought she did a good
job of matching a color to my existing eyebrow hair.
My understanding is that you have to have it redone every few
years but it has been nearly 3 years for me and I think my spot
As far as safety, Yolanda can talk to you about that. My
understanding is the pigment that she uses for eyebrows is very
unlikely to cause a reaction where as the pigment that is used
for lips could cause a reaction in some people. Good luck!
Hi! I had my eyebrows tattooed a few years ago and now it's
beginning to fade. I didn't really like the place I went to so I
was wondering if anyone out there has had their eyebrows done and
can recommend a good place for me. Thank you in advan
If you ever go to the Palm Springs area the very best one is ''New
Age Glamour'' in palm desert. I have been going to them for
about 5 years and continually get compliments when I mention that
my Eyebrows are done that they look so natural no one would know.
My beautician says she has seen many eyebrows done and still says
mine stand out by far as the best she has ever seen. Costs are
cheaper in Palm Desert than here. In this area I used Lisa Bruce
For tattoo coverup for scars. Lisa was or may still be the
President for the permanent makeup association, or whatever it is
Called. Lisa Bruce is located in Albany at 1225 Marin
510-527-2376. Look at her books of photos of people she has done
To see how she does the eyebrows. New age glamour does Janet
Jackson and other showbusiness people. Best wishes.
Try Yoland LeMore in Walnut Creek. I had mine done, twice
actually, I think the fading is just something that happens
after a few years. Anyway, she does good work and teaches
permanent makeup tattooing.
I am thinking about having permanent eyeliner tatooed on my
eyes, but understandable, I am very apprehensive. Does anyone
have a recommendation for a good person and place to go have it
done? Has anyone had any bad experiences with it?
I have not had any permanent cosmetics done, but the woman I go
to for electrolysis does permanent cosmetics and she is great -
so friendly and professional. She was President of the Society
For Professional Permanent Cosmetics. Her name is Lisa Bruce.
Her office is on Marin Ave in Albany and her phone number is 527-
2376. Good Luck!
A metal is used in the permanent eyeliner. Please note that if
you have permanent eyeliner you may not be able to have an MRI
later. I'll have to check on whether or not you can or if the
risk of damage to your eyes/eyelids is considered too high.
Certainly, it would make the images unreadable close to your
eyes. It may move the eyeliner a little, causing irritation to
your eyelids and possibly ruining your eyeliner. Just thought
you might want to consider this point before going ahead with
I know a licensed cosmotologist who does permament make up and
she does wonderful work. I haven't personally had permanent
make up done but a lot of my friends have gone to her and love
it. I do have my eye lashes and brows tinted by her and am very
pleased with that service. Her name is Sherri Pezzola and the
number to reach her is 510-262-9566.
I had permanent eyeliner put on by Laura Bruce, on Marin in
Albany. I found her to be helpful and professional. I am happy
with the tops of my eyelids, but have had trouble getting the
bottom liner to stay. Part of this is because I like to wear it
on the inside of the eyelid, instead of right below the lower
lashes. I don't think you would have the problem if you put it
below the lashes. Both upper and lower, although it's been a
little over a year, still itch on occasion. No one, not even my
eye doctor, had heard of this happening. Laura has been willing
to go over my lower liner more if I desire, but I haven't gotten
up the courage to try it a third time. The pain was not as bad
as I anticipated, though it's hard to look into the light with
your eye open and anticipate the action. The actual tatooing is
probably 10-20 minutes per eye, though it takes longer. The
first night, there was quite a bit of swelling. If I remember
correctly, the cost was between $400-500 for the whole
procedure. Good luck, whatever your decision.
I have had the eyeliner, eyebrows and lipliner done. I started
out with the eyebrows (about five years ago)to see if I would
like it and the following year did the eyeliner and subsequently
have also had the lipliner done. They are a trememdous savings
of time. I have mine done in Palm Desert (Palm Springs) at New
Age Glamour. They do a great job and are much cheaper than in
this area. The only drawback is that it is not a one time thing.
As time goes on it begins to fade and you can either put the
makeup back on or get a touchup. I highly recommend it.
I have no personal experience with permanent eye liner, but the
skin person I went to in Tiburon does. I can't remember if she
had just had it done herself, or if she actually applies it to
others. I would trust her completely. I have used her for
facials and electroysis. She was well worth the trip from the
east bay to Tiburon. Hope this is of some help.
