WHAT IS EYELINER TATTOOING?

Eyeliner tattooing is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of permanent pigment along the lash line to enhance the appearance of the eyes. It is a popular option for individuals who want to achieve a defined and long-lasting eyeliner look without the need for daily makeup application.

During an eyeliner tattooing procedure a tattoo machine is used to deposit pigment into the upper or lower lash line, or both, depending on the client's preferences. The pigment is carefully applied in thin, precise lines to create the appearance of natural eyeliner.

Eyeliner tattooing can be customized to achieve various eyeliner styles, ranging from subtle and natural-looking to bold and dramatic. Common eyeliner styles include:

  • Classic eyeliner: A classic eyeliner tattoo involves applying pigment along the lash line to create a defined line that enhances the eyes' shape and adds depth and dimension.
  • Winged eyeliner: A winged eyeliner tattoo features a wing or flick at the outer corner of the eye, extending beyond the lash line for a more elongated and dramatic look.
  • Smudged or smoky eyeliner: A smudged or smoky eyeliner tattoo involves blending the pigment along the lash line to create a soft, diffused effect that mimics the look of smudged eyeliner.
  • Lash enhancement: A tightline eyeliner tattoo involves applying pigment to the upper waterline (tightline) to enhance the appearance of thicker, fuller lashes and create the illusion of denser eyelashes.


Eyeliner tattooing offers several benefits compared to traditional eyeliner makeup, including:

  • Long-lasting results: Eyeliner tattooing provides long-lasting results that can last for years with proper care and maintenance, eliminating the need for daily eyeliner application.
  • Time-saving: Eyeliner tattooing saves time and effort in the morning routine, as there is no need to apply or remove eyeliner daily.
  • Waterproof and smudge-proof: Eyeliner tattooing is resistant to water, sweat, and smudging, making it ideal for individuals with active lifestyles or allergies to traditional makeup.
  • Customizable: Eyeliner tattooing can be customized to suit each individual's preferences, including color, thickness, and style, to achieve the desired eyeliner look.

However, it's essential to consider the following factors before undergoing eyeliner tattooing:

  • Permanent nature: Eyeliner tattooing is a permanent procedure, and the results cannot be easily removed or altered. To remove the tattoo a eye shield needs to be inserted by a medical practitioner.
  • Potential discomfort: Some individuals may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity during the eyeliner tattooing procedure, similar to the sensation of traditional tattooing.
  • Risk of complications: Like any cosmetic procedure, eyeliner tattooing carries a risk of complications, such as infection, allergic reactions, or pigment migration.
