We don’t believe in templates or a one-size-fits-all approach to any of our cosmetic services. For every client, we pair our highly specialized techniques with truly unique solutions.

The result is a look that feels personal to you and highlights your individual beauty.

COSMETIC TATTOOING TECHNIQUE

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, 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.

NANO BROW TECHNIQUE

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 .35mm 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, the artists at Her Velvet Hand have years of experience with Nano technique. This practice gives us the ability to create more precise shaping around the brows and lips, and minimize damage to our clients’ skin by using the safest cosmetic tattoo procedure currently available.

CONSULTATION $50

Prior to any tattooing procedure, we will have an initial consultation to understand your goals and determine which solution is right for you. A 30-minute consultation is $50 and will be applied to the cost of your procedure. Should you decide not to move forward, the consultation fee is not refundable. To book a consultation with one of our artists, please CALL or Email the studio.

NANO BROW

NANO BROW

Nano Brows are created by digitally implanting pigment into the skin. A sterile nano needle is used to tattoo each individual hair stroke for the appearance of a hyper-realistic, noticeably full brow. Suitable for all skin types and the least abrasive of all permanent eyebrow procedures, Nano brows create micro wounds rather than long slices in the skin from the microblading practice, which is far less traumatic to the skin and more sustainable for long-term skin health.
This is a semi-permanent procedure that requires touch-ups every 1-2 years depending on individual skin types.

Initial Nano Brow
$450-800 Per Session (Price varies based on Artist)

8-12 Follow-up Sessions
$150 Per Session

Refresher Appointment
$600 Per Session (Must be approved by Artist prior to booking)

For existing Her Velvet Hand cosmetic tattoo clients interested in booking a Refresher appointment- you must email a clear photo of your current brows/lips with NO makeup on to info@hervelvethand.com to be pre-approved.

Please Note: A Color Refresher appointment cannot be performed any sooner than 12 months following the last procedure. This is to ensure the quality of your results and the integrity of your skin. Any existing work MUST be lightened a minimum of 65% or more in order to avoid over-saturation of color, overworking the skin and for your results to stay as aesthetically natural as possible.

Nano Powder Brows

Nano Powder Brows

Our Nano Powder Brow Technique gives a soft shaded penciled in look to the brow. Once healed, the blend of the powder technique and the soft shading in the skin appear incredibly natural. We fully customize your results based on wether your goals are a light & airy defined brow or show stopping BOLD brows. This technique is suitable for ALL skin types and is the least invasive of cosmetic tattoo procedures.

This procedure can last between 12 months to 3 years of longer depending on your skin, lifestyle, etc. Yearly to Bi-Yearly touch ups are recommended to maintain color and shape.

Lip Blush

Using a digital machine similar to the one used to create Nano Brows, the Lip Blush process implants color into the lips to create a soft, candied look. The procedure gives the appearance of a fuller lip while also gently brightening and enhancing its natural color. There are no edges, borders or harsh lines, which create a beautifully subtle and enhanced lip.

Lip Blush is a semi-permanent treatment that requires touch-ups every 1-3 years depending on your individual skin.

Lip Blush

Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation is a form of cosmetic tattooing on the scalp that gives the appearance of a fuller hairline for women and men. The procedure is specifically for people with thinning hair or with a shaved head who are wanting a denser appearance. To see if you are the right candidate, book a consultation with our SMP expert Karla Solis.

Scalp Micropigmentation is known for its ability to help conceal male pattern baldness from crown balding to receding hairlines, near or complete hair loss, and alopecia. It can even give individuals who are not good candidates for a hair transplant the illusion of a shaved head. The procedure can also hide or fully camouflage scars and birthmarks, and restore hairlines for partially or fully bald heads. The innovative solution simulates a full front, side and crown region, and gives the appearance of a full, youthful head or cropped hair.

Karla, Her Velvet Hand’s Scalp Micropigmentation Specialist, applies an individualized approach and attention to detail to every procedure. By avoiding harsh edges or trendy styles, carefully designing and blending the hairline, and considering each client’s natural appearance, Karla creates normal appearing and truly undetectable hairlines. Karla takes into consideration the placement, density, natural patterns and color for every client, and uses high-quality and safe non-toxic permanent tattoo inks that heal true-to-color over time.

With careful attention to detail and an authentic-appearing hairline as the ultimate goal, the transformation may take several sessions depending on each client’s desires and individual factors. Karla’s unique approach is to begin with a conservative foundation and thoughtfully build to reach each client’s vision for the procedure.

Our Full Scalp Micropigmentation session includes both the frontal region and crown portion of your scalp. The session is 4 hours.
$600 Per Session
