What is permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup refers to the application of pigments (solid particles) under the skin to give the appearance of cosmetics. A needle is used to place the pigment on the skin.

What makes cosmetic tattoos so different?

Permanent makeup can best be described as a tattoo, but it has a different purpose than traditional tattooing. The goal is to make permanent makeup more subtle, rather than attracting attention. The artists aim to blend in with skin tones and facial features.

What are pigments?

A pigment is defined by the Dry Color Manufacturers Association as "a colored, black or white particulate organic/inorganic solid which is insoluble in and essentially chemically and physically unaffected by the substrate or vehicle it is incorporated into. The vehicle can be either distilled water or any other suitable liquid and should ensure that the pigment is evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

Glycerin is a humectant and has a large molecule. "This molecule is literally embedded in the skin." Permanent makeup artists prefer pigments that contain glycerin because they glide on the skin and do not dry out in the cups.
