Do not wear contact lens during the procedure or for 24 hrs after.
Bring sunglasses to wear home. Eyes may be light sensitive.
Do not dye or perm lashes for 2 days prior.
Do not use eyelash curler the day of the procedure.
If you have had any type of eye surgery, consult with the physician about how long you should wait before having a permanent eyeliner procedure. Most physicians are giving a 2 month ok after cataract, lasik, and blepharoplasty.
Do not use mascara until outer healing is complete (3-5 days). Most clients are returning to work in 2 days and are noncompliant about this, so at least begin with a new tube of mascara due to risk of bacterial presence in used tubes. Stay a little farther out on the lashes, not too close to the liner. Remove with vaseline or baby oil without rubbing it into the liner.
Eyes will be swollen for a few days. Eyes may feel dry or irritated. Lubricating refresher drops may be used.

Does eyeliner cosmetic tattoo hurt?
The pain threshold of each individual is different, but it is a sensitive area. Topical anaesthetic is used to help numb the pain.
What colours can I choose from for my eyeliner tattoo?
With eyeliner, we tend to recommend black, charcoal or brown. This depends on the individual; some people opt to choose a more vibrant colour (e.g. green or blue). Just remember trends change and tattoos are permanent.
What will it look like immediately after treatment?
Immediately after a lash line or an eyeliner tattoo, eyes will be a little red, swollen and agitated (almost like hayfeverish eyes). The eyeliner will be quite an intense colour with a wet look finish. It will also look much thicker than the desired result due to the swelling. The swelling will subside within a few hours; an ice pack can be used to aid relief of swelling.
When can I return to work and how long will it take to heal?
Eyeliner and lash line tattoos usually cause a little bit of swelling and redness. This usually subsides in a few hours and clients return to work the very next day. Daily care is essential to ensure the healing is at its optimum best, it generally takes 6 weeks for the eyes to completely heal.
