The history of permanent cosmetics

The word 'tattoo' was first added by English sailors, who were tattooed while on the Polynesian islands and brought the tradition back with them to Europe. A tattoo is any mark made under the skin by inserting ink- or pigment-. The technical expression is 'dermal pigmentation.' Typically, tattoos are used as a kind of decoration or modification of the body.

For thousands of years micropigmentation has still been in use, with archeological evidence showing tattoos on bodies as old as 3300 B.C. Mummies from Egypt and Nubian are tattooed, as were the Incas, Mayans, Aztecs, and Greeks. Today's practice continues-using tattooing to create style, dignity and set yourself apart from others.

Cosmetic micropigmentation is used to enhance the brows, eyes, and lips. It is waterproof and can not be washed away or smeared. Permanent makeup also saves time every day, because you don't need to apply and re-apply makeup at the beginning of the day and repeatedly. Lips can have a fuller look and eyebrows can be symmetrical. You can align your eyes to add depth and enhancement.
