Over time these tattoos will need to be touched up as a way to keep the natural look alive.

These tattoos are usually done by professional companies who specialize in permanent makeup. However, a skilled tattoo artist should be able to do the same results, but at a much cheaper rate.

Even though permanent makeup is a great idea, the one bad thing is that once it has been done, it cannot be changed.  This means that if you tattoo your eyebrows when you are in your twenties, it is going to look the same when you are in your 70’s.
