How Long Will My Brows Last?

How Long will my brow tattoo last?

Eyebrow Tattoos are a semi permanent process. The goal is to keep the tattoo looking as natural as possible so as to enhance your existing beauty. In order to achieve this natural effect, we implant the pigment slightly shallower than a permanent body tattoo. The top layer of the skin, which is called the epidermis, naturally cycles through a growth period where new cells grow and old ones shed off.  As these skin layers continuously cycle through and exfoliate your cosmetic tattoo will slowly start to fade over time.

The length of time your cosmetic tattoo will last will depend on a variety of different factors, such as daily skin care routines, exposure to outside elements, hair colour, skin type, and other lifestyle choices. Typically, the tattoo will last around 2-4 years, however proper maintenance is highly recommended to keep your Brow Tat looking fresh, crisp, and the proper colour.

While the word tattoo is a bit misleading, eyebrow tattoos, like most other beauty treatments, do not last forever.  Just like when we dye our hair, or paint our nails, we eventually have to touch-up the colour.  Every individual has their own personal opinions of when it’s the right time to make that next appointment.  Some clients prefer to do little adjustments at the 6 – 12 month mark to keep their brows looking 100%, others are procrastinators and wait until around the 18 – 24 months.

Excessive fading requires complete redesign and additional work to rebuild the tattoo.  Therefore, any appointments made after 24 months from the date of the initial session will be scheduled as initial session.

Nano Brows is an excellent option for annual refresher appointments, whether it’s for hair strokes or powder ombré fill, because we can add extra fine details, depth, and colour enhancement with less trauma to the skin. When returning for subsequent treatments it is extremely important to prevent creating any scar tissue. Nano technology is the perfect solution for this contradiction.

Nano tattooing utilizes a super fine single needle cartridge that allows artists to deposit pigment at an even depth with more precision and stability.  A single smaller needle equals less trauma to the skin, which results in less discomfort during the session and a quicker healing period for the client.
