The art and history of micro-pigmentation
From the beginnings of civilization, both men and women have adorned makeup and the art of tattooing to improve their appearance and denote concepts such as wealth, strength, bravery and spiritual well-being.
Beginning with the Egyptians where permanently inked patterns were found on their face, hands and arms to the Polynesians who have been practicing the tradition of "Tatau" on their torso going down to their knees as a requirement of ascending to a leadership for noble young men, the art of tattooing evolved independently in various parts of the world from the bamboo stick to the digitally controlled computerized tattoo machine.
When tattooing and makeup converge the result is called permanent makeup also know as micro-pigmentation, the introduction of pigments into the papillary dermis for aesthetic purposes. It's a skill, a science and an art, the objective being a very subtle enhancement of colour that looks as natural as possible.
There are different reasons that might lead a client to consider permanent makeup such as limited time or dexterity, impaired vision, paralysis or loss of limbs, burn injuries, multiple sclerosis or allergies to topical cosmetics.
Different treatments are available from 3D permanent makeup, Areola re-pigmentation, Scar camouflage.
