The lash line enhancement tattoo (invisible eyeliner technique) is a procedure which involves placing cosmetic tattoo pigment between the lashes, as opposed to a line on top of the lashes like a traditional eyeliner.
It gives the illusion of fuller thicker lashes and adds a beautiful contrast right next to the eye. Pigment is implanted directly into the lash line to create the illusion of darker, fuller lashes and creates a frame that makes the eyes pop.
This style is applied to your UPPER lash line, not the waterline nor the eyelid, but directly where your upper lashes grow. Can last anywhere between 1-5 years and maintained with a Refresh/Color Boost every 1-3 years.
This procedure takes approximately 2 hours and a Touchup is highly recommended 6-12 weeks after your initial service.
Initial session: $375
Touchup (6-12 weeks) $150
Important Pre-Treatment Factors to Consider
Lash Serums: Must Discontinue Eyelash growth serums such as Latisse or any other over the counter brands for 3-6 months prior to the procedure to reduce the risk of bruising/pigment migration. These sensitize the area making it too fragile and vascular for cosmetic tattooing.
Eyelash Extensions: Must be removed at least 2 weeks prior to your Lashline procedure. They can be reapplied 4 weeks after your touchup.

A topical anesthetic is applied for 10-20 minutes prior to the treatment to reduce discomfort. Most people report a “scratching” sensation that is tolerable. People with sensitive skin may experience more sensation, but again, the sensation is tolerable.
It can last anywhere from 1-5 years following your touch-up.
Your look can be maintained with a Refresh Color Boost every 1-3 years.
No, I only tattoo the upper lash line. The width and thickness of the tattooed line is determined by the size of the lash line.
Day 1 – May be some swelling by the end of the day.
Day 2 – May be some swelling, but should go down by the end of this day or the next.
Day 3-5 – Skin May feel dry, this is normal.
Over the next 30 days, they will enter a light phase once the scab falls off and gradually the healed color will emerge. As with all cosmetic tattoos the true healed results won’t be seen until approximately 6 weeks. Which is when you can return for the 6-12 week Touchup to build/perfect your look.
