Cosmetic tattooing is becoming increasingly popular as people seek long-lasting solutions for their beauty needs. If you’re considering getting a cosmetic tattoo, selecting the right cosmetic tattoo artist is a vital part of the process. We’ve compiled this handy list of pointers to keep in mind while selecting your cosmetic tattooist:
How to choose the right cosmetic tattooist
The easiest and foolproof way to gauge the expertise of a cosmetic tattoo artist is via their resume. Over the past few years, the cosmetic industry has seen an increase in businesses offering cosmetic tattoo services performed by staff lacking the required experience. Unfortunately, this leads to many clients reporting complications such as infections and scarring.
The best way to safeguard yourself is by choosing a technician with the right knowledge and expertise. At La Klinic, all our procedures are carried out by highly trained cosmetic tattooists who keep your safety and satisfaction as their top priorities. We bring back new techniques and the latest technology from advanced training sessions held in Europe to offer you the best and safest services in the industry.
- Recommendations and reputation
Another effective way to gauge the expertise of any business is to check the Google reviews left by their customers. Social proof is a surefire way to validate any claims the cosmetic tattoo artist puts forth. Read reviews and testimonials to see if the clientele is satisfied with the outcome of the treatment.
It’s important to have a look at all the reviews, good or bad, to get a feel of the quality of services offered. Run a quick search on the internet, and you’ll soon get a fair idea of the general opinion of the business’s customers.
- Equipment and location
Cosmetic procedures need to be carried out in sterile environments that minimise the risk of complications. The cosmetic tattoo artist should be wearing gloves, and all equipment must be sanitised and sterilised between uses. The appropriate equipment should, of course, be used for the procedure.
At La Klinic, we follow the highest standards of safety and sanitation, and we only use the latest and most precise devices to carry out all our procedures — so you can achieve the best results in the safest and most efficient manner possible.
No two facial features are the same, so there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to cosmetic tattooing. If you see the cosmetic tattooist reaching for a stencil, consider that a red flag you should not ignore. Natural-looking results cannot be obtained without carefully studying each feature, and a stencil is the last thing that will help you get the results you want.
Our clinic employs the ultra-fine technique of facial morphology to design the perfect shape for your face. Our expert cosmetic tattoo artists will create a customised look that works beautifully with your natural features, and your seal approval of the proposed shape is a must before we start the procedure.
When it comes to a sensitive area such as your face, compromising quality for affordability is not the best idea. As a rule of thumb, your decision should be based on the expertise offered rather than the price.
Although this might seem relatively insignificant, the confidence level of the cosmetic tattoo artist can play an important role in determining the outcome of your procedure. The artist must have faith in their abilities, or else the chances you’re satisfied with the final results are slim.
- Before and Afters
Obtaining visual validation depicting the skill of the cosmetic tattooist is a must. Before and after photographs give you a clear idea of the procedure’s success rate. Always ask for photographic evidence during your consultation.
Every cosmetic tattoo artist has their own unique technique. Ensure you’re happy with the artist’s style before moving forward with the process.
The consultation is an essential step in getting a cosmetic tattoo. Prepare a comprehensive list of concerns and questions you want to be addressed and answered. The cosmetic tattooist must be able to give you adequate information and equip you with the knowledge needed to make an informed decision.
A good cosmetic tattoo artist should offer you support before, during and after the procedure. The artist’s goal should not simply be to carry out the procedure but to build lasting relationships that make you feel well looked after.
