Cosmetic Tattoo can be desirable for a number of reasons – have you ever wished you naturally look the way you look in makeup? – Do you have visible scars that make you self-conscious and you want to hide? – A cosmetic tattoo procedure could be just the answer to your prayers.

More and more women in and around Noosa and the Sunshine Coast are today opting for a cosmetic tattoo as a permanent makeup procedure that can include eyebrow and eyeliner enhancements that never smudge and lip colour that doesn’t wear off or bleed into the fine lines around the mouth.

When you have permanent makeup applied as a cosmetic tattoo with micro-pigmentation – you can swim, exercise and wake up in the morning with natural radiance!

Eyebrow Tattoo

Based on the Sunshine Coast, an eyebrow tattoo procedure with Kathleen Gentry is a relatively painless way to not only restore your natural looks but it also saves you from having to apply make-up every time you go out.

Light shades of colour can be implanted with a “hairline stroke”, eyebrow tattoo technique to achieve a very natural appearance. The Micro-pigmentation procedure can mimic the appearance of hair in the brow line and all natural pigments which are completely inert are used and you can choose shades of all colours to suit you.

Anyone who desires more fullness of the eyebrows, especially those who use a pencil will love the eyebrow tattoo procedure which will enable them to go swimming, play tennis or wipe their forehead without the embarrassment of no eyebrows.

Alopecia sufferers are pleasantly surprised at how natural an eyebrow tattoo looks which can be a real boost to self-confidence.

It is quite common for the eyebrow tattoo to remain looking great for up to 10 years, however, this is dependent upon each individuals physiology and lifestyle.

Eyeliner Tattoo

Using her unique methods, Kathleen can apply an eyeliner tattoo as a definite line or a subtle shadow to make your lashes look thicker or darker. Additional shadowing of colour can create a soft “smudged” look or more bold definite line that can be created as well and with Kathleen’s help, you can choose the shade and colour to suit you.

An Eyeliner tattoo involves implantation of pigments in the lash line which produces a subtle, natural look, mimicking thousands of tiny eyelashes, which is popular with both men and women on the Sunshine Coast who want their eyes to sparkle again.

Once you’ve had a permanent makeup eyeliner tattoo procedure, you can do away with all those cosmetic pencils and liquids and you never have to worry about smudging your eyeliner again, even after swimming!

Kathleen’s eyeliner tattoo procedure is relatively painless and can last for up to 10 years, depending on your lifestyle.

Ophthalmologists recommend micro-cosmetic procedures for those wearing contact lenses to avoid irritation from cosmetics.

Lip Tattoo

Lip Liner & Lip Colour Tattoos – The micro-pigmentation procedure for the lip liner tattoo can appear to change the size and shape of the lips to make them appear fuller and more youthful.

This lip tattoo procedure helps to prevent lipstick from bleeding into the surrounding skin and camouflages facial lines surrounding the lips as the result of ageing.

Soft shades, similar to the lip colour of a new born baby are popular for those wanting a natural look, while a more dramatic colour can be achieved if required. Kathleen’s 25+ years experience as a facial colour consultant will ensure you get the right lip tattoo colour to suit you.

Full Lip Colour – This lip tattoo procedure is a favourite with most people and can help in camouflaging uneven lip pigment due to natural pigment loss or scaring. This restores a natural, youthful and healthy lip colour. You can choose any shade and colour of lip tattoo to suit you.

Scar Camouflage / Reconstructive Tattoos

A scar tattoo or scar camouflage procedure, also known as micro-pigmentation, can lesson the visual effects of scarring, hypo-pigmentation and vitiligo. It is also possible to correct any undesired asymmetry of facial features.

The scar tattoo procedure requires a machine specially adapted for the process and is similar to those used for the cosmetic enhancement of eyes, lips and eyebrows. However, the tattooing technique is different and the emphasis is on the blending of specially prepared pigments to closely match the area around the the scar being worked on, thus reducing the appearance of the problem. This can greatly help reduce any feelings of self-consciousness and re-build your confidence.

Another area where scar tattoo procedures are providing a major benefit to woman is a nipple tattoo or reconstruction.

Following surgery and the creation of the breast mound, by a surgeon, an adequate interval needs to be allowed so that the reconstructed breast mound has settled into its final position. Once this has occurred, excellent results can be achieved by creating a new areola around the nipple, matching colours to the existing one.

Restoring a sense of completeness to the person, this is possibly one of the most rewarding procedures that Kathleen offers.

A scar tattoo procedure is relatively painless and can last for up to 10 years, depending on your physiology and lifestyle.

Your doctor will advise when it is appropriate to have the restorative tattooing done after your surgery, as this can vary from patient to patient.

Contact Kathleen today for a consultation on how our scar camouflage and breast restorative tattoos can help you gain back confidence in your appearance.

Having surgery for whatever reason, be it health or aesthetics, often leaves scarring.  Some of this visual scarring can be reduced by having restorative/re-constructive tattooing for scar camouflage and/or breast reconstruction purposes.  This is a medical tattoo for the purposes of aesthetics.

As you can see from our before and after photos, we can help reduce the contrast between skin and scar colour to give a faded, more natural look to the area.  For example we can add skin coloured pigment to the whitened or lightened scar area to blend more naturally.  We have even helped gentlemen with scarring on their scalp to have hair-coloured tattooing to blend in the bare areas to create the illusion of hair instead of a fully scarred area.

Our speciality however, is nipple/areola reconstruction tattooing.  We have helped so many women who have had breast enhancements or  reconstruction after surgery or mastectomies, by giving the nipple/areola area a more natural, even, three dimensional looking nipple using advanced tattooing techniques.

We pride ourselves on providing a comfortable and understanding environment for women who are needing these treatments to share their stories with us and allow us to help them regain their self-confidence with their bodies again.  We are honoured to be chosen to be a part of your journey and take great care to reassure you throughout the process, from the initial consult to treatment to after-care advice.

Reconstructive Tattoos (e.g. for Aerola (Nipple), Facelifts, Scars, Post Breast Surgery)

“Medical tattooing for the breast or nipple areola micropigmentation is the chosen option for many women post mastectomy breast reconstruction and conditions requiring areola or asymmetry correction. After the surgeon has rebuilt the breast the 3D nipple tattoo portrait is the finishing step of the reconstruction. I have been tattooing breasts since 1997 and specialise in creating the most beautiful realistic 3D nipple/areola illusion using a broad range of micropigmentation techniques. Taking time to create a visual aesthetic appearance creating a sense of depth and detail to a reconstructed breast. For most it will eliminate the constant reminder of breast cancer and give back a feeling of wholeness and femininity once lost. Nothing gives me greater pleasure and privilege than to be with my clients with the unveiling of their new nipple portrait. Happiness fills the room and the living story continues…”               – Kathleen Gentry
