The average time for permanent makeup procedures takes around 2 – 2 ½ hours to complete. A seasoned master artist can complete this in about 1 hour or less. Time will be spent completing a consultation which includes discussion of your medical history, lifestyle, personality, design, color, and any questions or concerns you may have. After a topical numbing agent has been applied the design will be created for review. The actual tattooing can take between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the tissue response.
