Cosmetic tattooing, also known as permanent makeup or micropigmentation, is the precise and considered process of implanting carefully matched pigments of color beneath the surface of the skin. A very small needle is used to create the appearance of fine hair strokes or a soft powdered effect for the brows for the brows, or to apply pigment to create soft, candied lips, which gives definition to natural features.
While cosmetic tattooing is considered semi-permanent makeup, it’s important to know that any tattoo has the potential to be permanent. This is why Her Velvet Hand uses only a digital cosmetic device for all procedures — also known as the Nano technique — rather than traditional tattoo machines, and uses quality organic and non organic pigment blends instead of the most common tattoo ink. These special tools and pigments are designed to enhance natural shape and color without appearing abrupt or unnatural, and allow fading over time. This is an important and unique approach to cosmetic tattooing because it allows each client to make adjustments as natural coloration or skin changes occur, and when what is in vogue evolves.
Her Velvet Hand’s approach to cosmetic tattoo artistry is to create transformations through subtle enhancements, and careful shaping and shading, to bring out each clients’ innate beauty. Cosmetic tattooing is ideal for anyone seeking a low-maintenance, polished appearance that brings forth their features in a naturally appearing way. This technique can help to restore the appearance of full eyebrows that have been over-tweezed or hair loss due to alopecia, chemotherapy or other factors, a fuller-appearing hairline, and to bring pigment to lightly colored lips.
Courtney is one of the few highly trained and skilled Nano technicians in the country. A technique used globally, digital nano tattooing allows cosmetic tattoo artists to gently replicate authentic-appearing hair strands by injecting microdots of pigment into the skin. This technique uses extremely small needles ranging from .25mm to .33mm which is minimally invasive to gentle facial skin. With traditional microblading, the tool is made up of stiff needles that cut the skin and brow area in hair-like patterns and place pigment into the long slits. Over time the excessive cuts through continuous touch-ups leave the skin compromised, and with excessive and permanent scar tissue.
Dedicated to personalized artistry and protecting the skin’s integrity, Courtney has spent years training with the Nano technique. This practice gives her the ability to create more precise shaping around the brows and lips, and minimize damage to her clients’ skin using the safest cosmetic tattoo procedure currently available.
