Today, women from all walks of life and age are increasingly getting attracted towards such beauty treatments including tattooed eyes, brows and lips apart from the normal tattoo designs being done on the different parts of the body.
Unlike regular form of body art, which are inked on the third layer of body skin, the above mentioned cosmetic tattoo adds colored pigment to the second layer of the skin through a subtle color palette and aims to naturally enhance the features.
As per Wikipedia
Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eye lining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids. It is also used to produce artificial eyebrows, particularly in people who have lost them as a consequence of old age, disease, such as alopecia, chemotherapy, or a genetic disturbance, and to disguise scars and white spots in the skin such as in vitiligo.
What beauty experts say
The beauty experts call this inking procedure as permanent makeup because we then do not have to apply make-up on daily basis. However, it is semi-permanent, as said by Michele Curran, the cosmetic tattooist, and added that it is almost like taking ten years off.

Typically, results last a few years before they need to be touched up. Permanent makeup eyebrows are a new thing among celebrities too. Cost of eyebrow tattoos range from 25,000 – 35,000 INR. However, these need regular touch ups as well. These are commonly referred as cosmetic tattoo eyebrows.
Cosmetic tattoo expert Val Glover-Hovan, who does nearly 40 cases on a weekly basis, gracefully confides that cosmetic tattooing gives her clients the opportunity to look their best at any given time. It just gives them much more freedom and self-confidence, she reasons.
Eye and Lip Tattoo
The most sough-after among the requested procedures are eyebrows and lip tattooing. Besides, eye and lip liners are also in much demand.
If you’ve faint or partial eyebrows then cosmetic tattoo can help. Even lip tattoo can give a proper definition to the lip line, by reducing “lipstick bleed,” and giving a seductive shape to the lips.
And by going for a colored lip tattoo, you can hide your lip scars, plus can bid your expensive lipstick and gloss adieu. And similarly, after having an eyeliner tattoo you can kiss your eyeliner goodbye.

This client had her eyebrows and top eyeliner permanently tattooed. The eyebrow tattooing is an example of a “powdery filled” technique as opposed to individual hairline strokes since the client already has eyebrow hair but simply wanted an enhancement and shaping. The top eyeliner represents a thin eyeliner tattoo and a “lash enhancement” procedure that is used to define the eye without making it look excessively made up.
