Pre & Post Care Instructions
Pre & post care instructions are for your safety and for the best outcome of your procedure.
Please be sure to read ALL of the instructions thoroughly to avoid being refused service and a missed appointment fee being charged.
We don’t like having to enforce these rules or charge these fees, so please don’t make us.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO SHOW UP FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT PREPARED, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN.
Failure to follow all precare instructions may cause the need to reschedule your appointment and $150 rescheduling fee will be charged.
Any active breakouts, birthmarks, moles, raised bumps or other obstructions in the area to be tattooed will need to be rescheduled and charged $150 rescheduling/missed appointment fee.

To avoid unfair delays to clients, if you are more than 15 minutes late, you will be required to reschedule, charges may apply as indicated in the Policy above. We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise, however last minute changes affect not only your technician, but other clients as well. We are not responsible for providing directions if you are lost or late. We are not responsible if you’re late and miss your appointment and incur charges as a result.
Follow Up Policy
A Follow up (also known as a touch up visit) is required for each new permanent makeup procedure. Follow ups are to be completed no sooner than
8 weeks and no later than 4 months after your 1st visit. If your touch up isn’t completed in the allotted time period, it’s considered an incomplete procedure and a new set of brows will be required (2 visits) and charged full price. Annual color boost (or touch ups) are to be done annually, within
12-18 months (for microblading) or 18-24 months (for ombre/powder style brows) of your last appointment (the follow up visit) to qualify for the lower priced color boost. No exceptions to this policy, time frames are set due to the amount of pigment loss and color shifting that occurs past these points which causes the need for color corrections and/or lightening sessions to give the best outcome for long term results. Color correction sessions or lightening/removal is an additional expense. There will be an additional charge for clients who exceed those time frames as indicated on the pricing page of the permanent makeup tab.
If you have a previous tattoo/permanent makeup, you are required to contact our office prior to your appointment. It is required that you submit clear, close up photos in good lighting. If there is a possibility that you are not a candidate for microblading or other type of eyebrow style, removal will be recommended first. A $150 appointment fee will be charged if you arrive to an appointment without sending photos of prior permanent makeup, are not a candidate for microblading or powder/hybrid brows, and wish not to proceed with a different style of brows or removal.
Any active breakouts in the area to be tattooed will need to be rescheduled and charged a $150 rescheduling fee if you do not provide 24 hour notice.
Active breakouts in the tattooed area can spread infection throughout the area and can be very dangerous to the skin. Any birthmarks or moles on or near the area to be tattooed are a contraindication and need to be approved prior to scheduling an appointment, text a photo to the number below.
Please contact us as soon as a breakout is noticed, and text a photo to the number below for the location of the scheduled procedure.
Although these policies may seem strict and unnecessary, they have been implemented as a result of experience.
If you have questions or concerns about any of the above mentioned, please feel free to reach out.
We reserve the right to adjust these policies as needed.
