What should I do before my procedure
For lips: If you have EVER had cold sores/fever blisters/herpes on or around your lips, you MUST obtain a prescription from your doctor and inform him/her that your intention is to have a lip tattoo. Start taking it 3 days before and 4 days after the procedure (or follow the doctor’s instruction). Failure to take this anti-viral medication may well cause an outbreak, which in turn will compromise the results of your lip procedure.
For eyeliner: Wear your regular glasses instead of your contact lenses. Do not wear mascara (especially water-proof mascara, because this is more difficult to remove, and doing so will cause the eyes to be more irritated and sensitive).
For eyebrows: If you have an ideal shape and color in mind, bring reference photos and eyebrow pencil or powder.
If you plan to go on a vacation, it is recommended to plan this trip a minimum 10 days after the procedure. We also request our clients avoid prescription blood thinners (if possible) for 24 hours prior to their appointment. This also includes Vitamin E, Aspirin and Alcohol.
