Also known as Permanent Make-up, Derma Graphics or Cosmetic Tattooing, it is a procedure whereby minute
particles of natural and synthetic iron oxide colour pigments of pharmaceutical grade are implanted a little
more than 1mm below the skin’s surface using a hand-piece which holds a sterile needle or needle grouping. The
depth varies depending on which area of the face is being pigmented. Areas such as lips and eyebrows can be
pigmented a little deeper to a depth of around 2mm, the eye-lash area a little less. The pigments used are
hypoallergenic and are non reactive within the body. A conventional tattoo is implanted to a depth of 3mm
below the exfoliating layers of skin and the inks used in tattooing are carbon based, which is why they
remain there permanently.
Our Head office is based in North London in zone 2 which makes us very easily accessible. Parking is
