The transition from tattooing to cosmetic tattooing was made easy by the training and support we received from Dermaceâ„¢, a leading cosmetic tattooing training school. The machine we use is totally different to a normal tattoo machine - we use the latest up to date Dermaceâ„¢ Margo BioEvolution micro pigmentation machine which makes for minimal discomfort to the client.

We have a wide range of colour pigments to suit every skin type and colour - if you are reading this and you are interested in the cosmetic procedures we can provide, the three steps to enhancing your beauty are:

1. Initial free consultation to decide if this procedure is for you. Included in this is an allergy test for ink and the anaesthetics we use, and some colour matching too.
2. First procedure, first pass (under local anaesthetic).
3. Second appointment for a check-up and possible retouch.

The cosmetic tattooing procedure can last from 18 months to 5 years, depending on your skin type and life style factors ie. use of sunbeds and natural sunshine, and everyday cleansing - in some circumstances it's sometimes necessary to return to the studio for a brightening at a minimal cost.

At Hype Cosmetic Tattooing we have both Imma and Johnny who are trained and qualified in semi-permanent makeup. Imma can provide a feminine and artistic ability to perfectly create your semi-permanent makeup enhancement.

For initial consultation contact Imma who is a qualified Dermaceâ„¢ technician, she can advise you on all aspects of each procedure and answer any questions that you may have.
