Eyeliner can be done either thick or thin, creating either a dramatic or natural look. A very thin stippling can also be done within the lash line to create a “lash enhancement” look. The stardust eyeliner is done by creating a smokey look using stippling.
Eyebrows are done by creating the shape to the clients liking and then making a powder style fill which is called a soft fill. Hair strokes can be added for a more natural look by combining this with microblading which we refer to as an ombre brow. The powderbrow gives the effect of a brow that goes light towards the inner brow and then darkens towards the tail. This is done with stippling.
Lip liner is done by following the natural lip line and feathering inward to create definition and a soft blend.
Microblading creates a very natural look and gives the appearance of thin hair strokes throughout the brow. It is not as permanent as the traditional eyebrow tattooing and may require more touch-ups.
Medical tattooing is the perfect compliment to put the finishing touch on a surgical procedure. It can also be used to achieve a desired look to minimize scarring or replace pigment when needed, particularly in people who have lost them as a consequence of old age, disease, such as alopecia totalis, chemotherapy, or a genetic disturbance, and to disguise scars and white spots in the skin such as in vitiligo. With over 14 years of experience, Alexis Kovacs is one of the leading artists in the country performing medical tattooing. Her services include traditional permanent makeup such as eyeliner, lip liner, and eyebrows, microblading, scar camouflaging, breast reconstruction tattooing, scalp pigmentation, and trans specific tattooing.
Scalp pigmentation achieves the look of hair follicles by stippling in areas where hair on the head is missing due to baldness or transplant scarring.
Scar camouflaging is done to darken areas of the body that are either missing pigment or to lighten where scarring has become red or dark. It is case specific and in some instances cannot be done due to certain issues and requires a consult.
Breast reconstruction tattooing is also used to restore or enhance the breast’s areola, such as after breast surgery. It can also be done cosmetically in instances where the areolas need more pigment or are misshapen or do not match each other.
Trans-specific tattooing is an excellent option for pigmentation optimization after vaginoplasty to further define the labia and bring the final coloring closer to the natal female vagina. For transmen, nipple pigmentation can become uneven or misshapen over time and tattooing can improve symmetry, shape and pigmentation.
