I reserve the right to deny service to anyone at my discretion. If you now have (or have had in the past) any of the following contraindicative conditions below, please contact me ( to ensure you are a good candidate. Diagnosed conditions that are waived may be required to bring a doctor’s note stating their approval.

  • Pregnant or nursing

  • Epilepsy

  • Pacemaker or heart conditions

  • Organ transplant

  • Tendency towards keloids or scarring

  • Seborrheic dermatitis

  • Skin irritations or psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)

  • Sick (cold, flu, etc.)

  • Botox in the past month

  • Accutane in the past year

  • Doxycycline in the past 6 months

  • Extremely oily or problematic skin

  • Auto-immune disease

In order for your new brows to heal properly (and look their best) these Pre- & Post-Care Instructions found below are of the UTMOST IMPORTANCE! Pre-Care instructions are designed to limit bleeding and skin sensitivities during the service.  Excessing bleeding during the procedure will dilute the pigment color and lead to poor results! 

Please note:  I strongly advise prospective clients to book their appointments at least 3-4 months in advance of vacations, weddings, and other special occasions to allow adequate time for healing and to receive a touch-up.  In rare cases, some new clients may require multiple touch-ups (at an additional cost) to achieve their desired density and shape.


  • Do not work out the day before procedure.

  • NO alcohol or caffeine 48 hours before procedure.  (Yes, there is caffeine in decaf coffee and tea!).

  • Avoid sun and tanning on your face two weeks prior to procedure.

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 48 hours before procedure.

  • Avoid Fish Oil, Prenatal Vitamins, Nutritional Shakes (Shakeology, etc), "Hair, Skin, Nail" supplements two weeks prior to procedure.

  • Discontinue Retin-A, Chemical and Laser Peels, Microdermabrasions, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), and any chemical exfoliant or "brightening" skincare at least 4 weeks prior.  (Once your brows have fully healed, you must cover your brow tattoo with VASELINE prior to the use of these products on the forehead area to prevent premature fading).

  • Botox and filler on the forehead, temple, and eye area should be avoided 1 month prior to procedure for those who do not regularly receive injectables.

  • No brow waxing, tinting, or threading one week prior -- the more natural hair growth you have, the better!

  • Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.


1. 30 minutes AFTER PROCEDURE: Blot brows every 5 minutes with tissue to absorb lymphatic fluid that is excreting from tattoo.

2. With clean hands, gently wash eyebrow area using a fragrance-free cleanser (such as Cetaphil or Ceravie) and water.

3. Allow eyebrows to completely dry before applying ointment (pat dry with paper towel or air dry).

4. Once brows have fully dried, apply a thin layer of balm (provided to you) or Aquaphor with a Q-tip (grain of rice sized amount on each brow).

  • Repeat above steps 2-4 twice per day for one week after service.

  • DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking will cause scarring and pigment loss!

  • Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for 4 weeks after your procedure. Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to change color while it is healing and can also cause hyperpigmentation.

  • NO underwater swimming and bathing for 4 weeks to avoid bacterial infection.

  • Avoid pool, sauna, steam rooms, steamy showers, and hot baths for 10 days.

  • Avoid sweating on your face for 7 days. Sweating through or on the brows will expel pigment from the dermis producing poor, patchy results.

  • Avoid sleeping on your brow area for the first week.

  • Keep your bangs and hair pulled back from your face for the first week.

  • NO makeup or skincare products to be used on the brow area for 10 days.


Protect your investment after you’ve healed!        

  • Exposure to the sun and tanning beds will cause premature fading and discoloration of the pigment.

  • Apply a physical sunscreen daily on brow area once completely healed (10 days). 

  • For further sun protection wear hats, sunglasses, and stay in the shade!

  • Maintain the shape of your tattooed brow design by trimming, tweezing, threading or waxing superfluous hair.

  • Lasers will alter the color of the pigment. 20% zinc oxide must be covering your brow tattoo prior to any laser services.

  • Yearly touch-ups are recommended to maintain your results.

  • Certain skincare products and services will cause premature fading of your brow tattoo and may also alter the pigment color. Please apply a barrier layer of Vaseline over your brow tattoo before use of any of the following: glycolic acid, salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acid, hydroquinone, retinol/Retin-a, Vitamin C, peels, microdermabrasion, Obagi, or anything that brightens or treats hyperpigmentation.

  • Frequent chlorine swimmers, please apply a barrier layer of Vaseline over your tattoo prior to swimming to prevent premature fading.


The above Pre- and Post-Care instructions will affect how quickly or slowly you heal. The more fatigued you are, the weaker your immune system is and more likely infection may occur. Please get plenty of rest and drink lots of water to hydrate prior to your procedure!

*** I have a NO TOLERANCE POLICY for those to those who fail to follow the Pre- and Post-Care Instructions. Failing to follow the above instructions may result in denial of service and possibly future services. There are no implied or written guarantees, especially if you do not follow instructions!
