Before beginning, let’s make sure you are a good candidate for permanent makeup. This is important so you may understand what is to be expected. I want to make sure you get great results, which also requires that you follow appropriate pre-care and post-care instructions.


You are not a candidate if any of the following apply to you:

  • Pregnancy
  • Nursing
  • Diabetes Type 1
  • Lupus
  • Hepatitis B/C
  • AIDS
  • Active Skin Disorders: Cold Sores, Shingles, Impetigo, Psoriasis, Pink Eye, Sun Burn, Severe
  • Acne
  • Active Vitiligo
  • Rosacea
  • Skin diseases such as eczema, seborrhea dermatitis, or psoriasis.
  • History of keloids
  • Blood Disorders: Sickle Cell, Hemophilia
  • Mental Disorders
  • Accutane (must be off for 6 months)
  • Steroids (must be off for 6 months)
  • History of MRSA or staph infections


  • Retinol/Retin-A must be discontinued 7 days prior to procedure. (It will cause the skin to bleed).
  • Injections (Botox, Radiesse, JuvaDerm, Voluma, etc.) must be done at least 2 weeks before or 2 weeksafter procedure.
  • Chemical peels and laser treatments may not be done within 60 days before or after procedure.
  • The use of Latisse® must be discontinued at least 3 months prior to your eyeliner procedure (it creates an inflammatory response, causes excess bleeding, and prohibits the eyeliner from healing well).
  • Sunburned or Suntanned skin is damaged skin and therefore will cause excessive bleeding.
  • We CANNOT work on sunburned or suntanned skin.
  • We are prohibited from tattooing over moles.
  • You cannot expose the area to the sun for 30 days before or after procedure.
  • Do not schedule this procedure within one week prior to a water vacation.
  • Stay out of steam rooms, saunas, hot yoga, swimming pool, etc. for one week following procedure.
  • Avoid working out or sweating for 7-9 days post procedure. Sweat will prevent pigment from healing into the skin.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine 1 day before procedure to minimize any oozing, bleeding or swelling.
  • Do not take coumadin, aspirin, ibuprofen, niacin, fish oil or vitamin E 3 days prior to procedure.
  • Please consult with your physician before stopping any prescribed medical treatments.


An initial application is incomplete until after a follow-up appointment, which IS SCHEDULED at the end of the first session, for approximately 4-6 weeks. Please, plan ahead and allow enough time to have the service completed.

WHILE YOUR SKIN HEALS, BE PREPARED FOR THE COLOR INTENSITY OF YOUR PROCEDURE TO BE SIGNIFICANTLY LARGER, SHARPER, BRIGHTER, OR DARKER than what is expected for the final outcome. This is a normal and expected result of the application and healing process. The healing process will take a number of days to complete, depending on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates and new skin regenerates to take its place.


  • Copy my location address and paste in your driving/ GPS app to check the ETA from your location to my salon (I am located inside the EMED primary care) the address is included in confirmation email when you make the appointment and plan accordingly.
  • Please prepare for a 2 -3 hours slot as to not feel rushed if I am running a few minutes behind with the client before you or if I run behind with you. Every client’s skin is different and some can be complicated; I do not ever rush my work. Please respect everyone’s appointment as well as your own.
  • All the appointments are one on one (1:1) setting only companions are not allowed.
  • I recommend showering and wash your hair before your appointment. Wet the eyebrows and lips after your procedure can interfere with the healing process as per instructions.
  • Previous tattooed or microbladed eyebrows. MUST HAVE A consultation before booking. If you are not candidate for coverup I will refer you to removal before.
  • Excessive oily skin potentially increases the lack of retention.
  • Very sensitive/low pain intolerant (we use numbing after the skin is open)
  • Please be aware that having a procedure done while on your menstrual cycle can make you hyper- sensitive at the procedure site.
  • Reschedule is allowed just one (1) time, must be made at least 24 hours before your appointment date. Please read my policies before to proceed.
  • If you have little to no existing hair, the Strokes treatment could to appear dimensional than those clients who have more hair naturally, therefore does not look natural by itself. You can add shading to make them less dimensional.
  • If you are a frequent smoker, take medications, spend time under sun your pigment may fade sooner.
  • If you are iron deficient or anemic, your pigment may fade sooner and bleeding/bruising may occur during and after the procedure.
  • For LIP PIGMENTATION, if you have previous work you need to send photos for consultation before booking. If you have dark spots (natural hyperpigmentation) consultation is required as well.

Pre-Procedure Instructions for Cosmetic Tattooing


  • You may fill in your eyebrows as you normally would so we can take into consideration the shape and color you desire.
  • Avoid tweezing, waxing, electrolysis, and coloring your brows for two weeks prior to the procedure. This will allow your technician the most flexibility to achieve optimal results.
  • Please be aware that we will remove your foundation and concealer to determine your true undertones. This is vital for us to choose the right color.
  • We offer several different options of eyebrow pigmentation lasting from several months to several years. (Microblading vs. traditional powder brows). We offer hair strokes, hair strokes with shading, and fully shaded brows. Your specialist will discuss the best options for you depending on your skin type, lifestyle, desired results and desired maintenance.
  • Rest assured, we use the best tools and the best pigments in the industry.


  • If you have any history of cold sores, fever blisters, or herpes simplex, you must contact your physician to obtain and take the proper prescription medication to prevent such outbreaks for at least 4 days before and after the procedure.


Though it is extremely rare, I reserve the right to refuse treatment for the following reasons:

Undisclosed skin condition (including sunburn/suntan) *50% of the work will be chargedUnder the influence of drugs or alcoholAny behavior which, in the opinion of the artist at V’LORE Ink Artistry work might be compromised or their ability to work safely and comfortably toward the desired results.

** Permanent makeup is a process. Two to three sessions are typically required to achieve the desired results. It is not uncommon to lose up to 70% of the color after the first session.
