It is very important if you are darker skin type to have a expert perform your permanent makeup work because if cheap ink and the wrong colors are used the end results can turn out blue, gray, pink or a unwanted color.

Karen Marlise warns people beware of hand stabbing permanent makeup given a fancy name to make it sound like it is highly skilled technique which truly she doesn’t think applies to what is really done. A needle that is attached to a plastic stick so it can be hand poked into the skin. Instead of the even, regular action of a quality permanent cosmetic machine which very high quality needles which regulates even distribution of color in the skin. This hand stabbing some call it micro-pigmentation but, Karen calls it no different then a jailhouse tattoo because of the end appearance of most of the work she sees and what client’s tell her. She has been told how long it takes, how painful it is, how short the life of the work lasts and how all over the place the end result is. Usually way too thick and sloppy looking like some that couldn’t see to put of their makeup on. Karen doesn’t want to insult others work but, she believes you shouldn’t be doing the work if you can’t do it beautifully. Karen sees eyeliner done all the time that is way too thick, no color in the lash line and then the bottom put underneath the lash line too low and looks awful on most people making their eyes drupe.
