A skin test/patch test is available upon request. If you choose to have a skin test/patch test, it must be completed a minimum of 48 hours prior to your procedure.
Since the skin may swell or redden, we recommend not making any social plans for a day or two after your procedure. It is always best to avoid these procedures within a few months prior to important life events such as weddings. Procedures may take longer than expected to be complete under some circumstances.
- REFRAIN from the use of alcohol, aspirin, aspirin containing medications, ibuprofen, fish oils, niacin or any other blood thinning medications or supplements for seven days before and two days after you procedure. No medication should ever be discontinued without first consulting your physician.
- REFRAIN from judgment altering drugs for at least 24 hours prior to any procedure. No medication should ever be discontinued without first consulting your physician.
- Avoid caffeine the day of your procedure.
- HYDRATE – inside and out! Make sure you’re taking good care of your skin in the weeks prior to your service.
- STOP any and all lash and/or brow growth serums for a minimum of 3 months prior to your procedure. This is particularly important with permanent eyeliner procedures. Those types of serums are stimulants. They will make your eyelids to fragile and vascular for cosmetic tattooing. As a result, there will be bleeding and bruising.
- DO NOT wear contact lenses during or within 48 hours following the eyeliner procedure. Remember to bring your glasses with you. You may resume wearing your contacts lenses as soon as your eyes return to their pre tattooed condition.
- Any lash or brow tinting, lash lifts, brow lamination’s, or lash curling should be completed no less than 48 hours prior to your procedure. REFRAIN from using an eyelash curler for at least two weeks post permanent eyeliner procedures.
- Any tweezing or waxing should be done at least 48 hours prior to a procedure; electrolysis no less than 5 days before. Do not resume ANY form of hair removal for at least 2 weeks post procedure.
- REFRAIN from sun over exposure, including tanning beds, prior to your procedure. Your skins health plays an immeasurable role in your healing and final outcome.
- Following an eyeliner procedure, as a safety precaution, we recommend that you have someone available to accompany you or drive you home.
- You can wear your normal makeup or bring your brow pencils to your consultation but, it is not necessary for your procedure. Do not wear ANY eye makeup, including mascara, to an eyeliner procedure.
- Permanent cosmetic procedures are a multi-session process. You are required to come back for at least one fine-tune/touch up visit before it can be determined that your work is complete. Fine-tune/touch up visits are scheduled 4-8 weeks after your initial procedure. Your fee covers your consultation, the initial procedure, and one fine-tune/touch up visit. Additional touch up appointments will require additional fees.
- Be prepared for the initial color intensity of your procedure to be significantly sharper, brighter, and/or darker than what is expected for your final outcome. It will take time to transition based upon how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates.
- While Tattooed colors may initially simulate the exact color and tone desired, they will not always remain a perfect match. Tattooed colors are constant while your own skin color will vary depending on many variables including but, not limited to exposure to cold, heat, sun, and circulatory changes.

Don’t panic! Your brows can get darker before they start to get lighter.
Using a clean cotton swab, apply a light layer of your specific aftercare product (provided by Chaya Beauty) as directed by your artist. Less is more – do not over apply, just enough to keep them from scabbing.
- DO NOT use Neosporin or Vaseline or any other product not directed by your artist on the treated area and DO NOT listen to your friends’ aftercare advice.
- NO water on them for the first 48 hours. AVOID water on them for the next 10 days.
- DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can alter color retention and cause scarring.
- NO saunas, jacuzzies, or long steamy showers for 10 days.
- AVOID sun exposure and tanning beds for the first 3-4 weeks. This can compromise the healing and final outcome of your procedure.
- AVOID heavy sweating and/or working out for the first 48 hours.
- DO sleep on a clean pillow and bedding to prevent infection. Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days. This reduces contact with the treated area and also aids in preventing infection.
- AVOID drinking alcohol and riding in open air vehicles for 10 days.
- NO makeup, cleansers, creams or other products on the treated area for 10 days. This includes but, is not limited to: Retinols or Retin-A, Alpha Hydroxyls (AHA’s) Peroxides, Proactive, Salicylic, Lactic, or Glycolic Acids.

There are no written or implied guarantees. If additional fine-tune/touch up sessions are required, there will be additional fees.
Proper care post procedure is necessary to achieve the best results. Keep in mind that, in many cases, some unevenness of color is to be expected. The purpose of the touch up visit is to correct any color or shape issues. Please review the following aftercare directions and refer to them as necessary.
- Ice packs, protected with a cloth, may be applied as necessary to reduce swelling. Sleeping slightly elevate helps alleviate swelling sometimes seen in the morning after face procedures.
- Wash your hands before touching the treated area. Clean cotton-tipped applicators may be used to gently cleanse the eye area. Do not expose the area to dirty or unsanitary conditions. Wearing glasses outdoors is a good way to protect new eyeliner from dust etc.
- Some itching is normal. DO NOT PICK, PEEL, OR SCRATCH the treated area or your color may heal unevenly and you risk scarring and infection.
- No makeup is to be applied to the area for 10 days after the procedure. After any eyeliner procedure, use new mascara and eyeliner for the first 10 days after the 10 days with no makeup. Do not use a lash curler for 2 weeks after your procedure.
- Do not expose your healing skin to shower spray, skin creams, ointments, or lotions other than what you have been instructed to use for at least 3 days following your procedure. This includes but, is not limited to the following: growth serums, Retinols or Retin-A’s, Alpha Hydroxys (AHA’s), Peroxides, Proactive, Salicylic, Lactic, or Glycolic Acids. Even though none of these should be applied to the eyeliner area, keep in mind that products do “travel” on the skin, so avoid the area at least 1″ around the eyeliner.
- Do not expose your healing skin to direct sun, tanning beds, hot tubs, steamy/hot tub baths or showers, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, or any extremely hot water for 2 weeks following the procedure.
- Protect your eyes from the sun! Sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics and may cause irritation even years later. No direct sun exposure or tanning for at least 4 weeks following your eyeliner procedure.
- If you are planning chemical exfoliation or other medical procedure, please inform your physician of your cosmetic tattoo. Chemical treatments, microdermabrasions, facials, botox are not recommended for four weeks afterwards.
- Avoid heavy sweating for the first week.

Per the AAMPMU Board, January 21, 2021, here are some of the facts about the COVID-19 vaccine that you need to know:
None of the authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines or COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in the United States contain the live virus that causes COVID-19.
This means that a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19. However, it may compromise the immune system temporarily in order to strengthen it. Sometimes this process can cause symptoms, such as fever.
These symptoms are normal and are a sign that the body is building protection against the virus that causes COVID-19. It typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity (protection against the virus that causes COVID-19) after vaccination.
Only once the body has had time to fully build immunity should PMU procedures be performed. AAM Founder Dr. Zwerling advises no tattooing between the 1st and 2nd dose of the vaccine and then waiting 10-14 days after the second shot.
