Getting a permanent makeup has become a trend in Iran and Iraq which is also gaining momentum among the youth here in India. Getting a permanent makeup basically means getting that perfect eyebrow with a permanent tattoo or a perfect lips. The flipside is they always look made up.

Like two sides of a coin, this is both a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing, obviously, is that you don’t have to run to do your make up if you are in a rush because you are always made up to perfection. But on the other hand, if it’s done in a bad way then it could be quite a difficult task to remove or fix it considering it’s a tattoo, it’s a permanent structure.

Though it does fade over time, you would need a laser to get it removed. Most people get the permanent tattoo done and then they are found to want to get the laser to lighten out a neighboring area. This is not a very safe option because the pigment which is there in the tattoo may interfere with the laser which could result in an accidental reduction of the effect of the pigment in the area where you have actually paid for to get a permanent makeup.

So if you are planning to get a permanent tattoo done, make sure you finish your laser hair reduction procedures or your laser skin tightening procedures first. Then, go for the permanent tattoo. Also, think a hundred times before you make up your mind because your facial features do change with time and what may now appear very attractive with fully bright pigmented lips would not look great when you are a little older. And you may be stuck with it for life. So, think twice before you decide to get anything permanent done on your face.
