Cosmetic Tattoos: Are They Right For You?

Published July 17, 2019
By Celebrity Ink

Imagine waking up every day made up and ready to take on the world.

Our cosmetic tattoos help you achieve just that.

Cosmetic tattoos, or semi-permanent makeup, are a growing trend taking over the beauty world right now.

You may be interested to know that this includes eyebrow, eyeliner and lip tattoos, which increases self-confidence in women (and men!).

Semi-permanent tattoos are for everyone; young, old, and in between.

What's at least one thing everyone has in common?

They're all spending less time on their make-up!

Furthermore, cosmetic tattooing is great if you don’t have steady hands or have allergies to makeup.

Common Questions

We answer the following questions in this article;

  1. What are cosmetic tattoos?
  2. Do you use different inks to regular tattoos?
  3. Is the method different to regular tattoos?
  4. Is it painful?
  5. Is it permanent?

So, what are Cosmetic Tattoos?

Getting a cosmetic tattoo is now a widely popular form of tattooing whereby the artist creates soft designs that resemble makeup.

Our artists use colour pigments applied into the dermis layer of the skin, which leaves a lasting and beautiful impression.

How does the ink in Cosmetic Tattooing differ from regular tattoos?

While cosmetic and regular tattoos have similarities, there are also some very distinct differences.

Cosmetic tattoos use different ink to regular tattoos.

The pigments in cosmetic tattoos are made up of smaller particles and suspended in a diluter, which allows for a more natural, softer colour in the skin.

Is the method used for Cosmetic Tattoos the same as regular tattooing?

There is also a significant difference in the methods used in these two types of tattoos.

Regular tattoo machines have needles that pierce the skin while creating a vacuum that pulls the pigment into it.

However, cosmetic tattoos machines work on a rotary mechanism that turn and slice to apply the pigment.

Cosmetic tattoos do not go as deep as regular tattoos and are designed to blend into the skin seamlessly.

Is there pain involved?

Like any form of tattoo there is always going to be some degree of pain involved, however during eye area procedures a high-quality anaesthetic is applied.

A dental block is administered during lip procedures to try and significantly reduce the amount of discomfort you will feel.

How permanent is Cosmetic Tattooing?

This style of tattooing is only semi-permanent which means it will generally fade overtime and will require maintenance and touch ups in the future.

At Celebrity Ink, every cosmetic tattoo is performed with a high level of skill and knowledge, and the results speak for themselves.

Our technicians have years of experience to ensure you receive first-class results.

At Celebrity Ink you will walk away feeling like a Star every time.

Different Styles of Cosmetic Tattoos


Eyebrows have always been an integral segment of the beauty industry, but drawing a perfect arch every time can be frustrating!

Micro-blading is what's called our semi-permanent eyebrow technique where natural pigments are used to create naturally fuller brows.


Lip Blushing is a very natural looking semi-permanent tattoo makeup which uses natural pigments as a cosmetic tattoo designed to boost the colour and shape of your lips to give you a fuller look.

Natural shades, often two to three times darker, is used to your requested colour and applied with a cosmetic tattoo machine.

It delivers an enhanced version of your lips in shape, colour and size.

By deepening the colour of your lips, you can create a fuller healthier look.

Using unique shading and a pixelating technique, you can customise the colour to match your lip colour.


Typically, there are two different types of eyeliner tattoos.

One is where the tattoo pigment is placed within your eyelash layers to create a slight enhancement of your eyes.

This looks quite natural and creates a subtle effect.

The other style is more defined, with the eyeliner applied above your lash line, giving you a sweeping ‘cat eye’ look.

You should only opt for this style if it’s something you already apply every day and enjoy, as it’s quite a statement style to wear all year without the option of removal.


With so many people suffering from hair loss (both male and female), Scalp Micropigmentation can be a real confidence booster!

Scalp Micropigmentation (otherwise known as SMP) can give the appearance of a head full of hair or it can work towards concealing scars with a special tattooing technique.


Semi-permanent freckles are created by our artists by using either a rotary motor or a single needle (almost like bamboo tattoos!).

Wake up every day with youthful, wistful cheeks!

Scar Blending

This style of cosmetic tattooing is a brilliant way for people to hide unwanted scars.

We call it 'Scar Camouflage' and it's a unique treatment that blends an existing scar with the skin around it.

Effectively, it looks like there's no scar at all!

From breast augmentations to scars left from injuries or cosmetic procedures such as facelifts, scar camouflage is a wonderfully modern use of cosmetic tattooing.

Known to last for several years, it will only require maintenance visits every so often.
Makeup that you can wear all day and night for years to come has to be empowering!
