IN PREPARATION FOR YOUR BROW TATTOO APPOINTMENT PLEASE NOTE

Thank you for choosing East Side Brow Tattoo and welcome to the first day of having new brows.  

Let’s commence with the importance of staying well hydrated and avoid alcohol 24 hours before tattoo procedure. Alcohol may cause excessive bleeding in turn diluting the tattoo ink. Bleeding also results in crusting upon healing which may leave you with a very patchy result.

It is essential you are in good health and illness free. If you are unwell the procedure will be very uncomfortable and will slow down the healing process and may cause complications.

BEFORE ATTENDING YOUR EYEBROW COSMETIC TATTOOING PROCEDURE

If you have experienced any of the following contraindications medical permission is required- In circumstances where medical permission cannot be obtained clients must give their informed consent in writing prior to treatment.

You must speak to your Doctor regarding postponing the use of blood thinning medication for one week prior your appointment as taking any blood thinning medication (cartia, warfarin, and aspirin), thin the blood and excessive bleeding pushes the pigment out of the skin.

Stop all vitamins such as Vitamin C, Garlic, Chamomile, glucosamine, fish oil, primrose oil, anti-oxidants, ginger, gingko 1 week prior to treatment as well as caffeinated drinks, alcohol and blood thinning medication 1 week prior to treatment, this is necessary to alleviate blood flow as vitamins and blood thinning medication causes excessive bleeding which pushes the pigment out of the skin making it very difficult to work and impairs the results.

Any moles, freckles must be checked by your GP prior to being tattooed and any of the following contraindications require medical permission.

Slipped disc Epilepsy

  • Gently exfoliate your brows the day before or day of your treatment.
  • Arnica can be taken to minimise bruising and antihistamines to minimise swelling for people who suffer from allergies and hay fever, at least 2 or 3 days before the procedure.

  • Groom your brows 1 week prior to treatment, waxing and tweezing stray hairs.
    If you use brow tinting products to tint grey eye brow hair this should be done at least 48 hours before tattooing or you will need to wait 4 to 6 weeks after tattooing has healed and follicle has closed to tint eye brow hair.
