on your body & menstrual cycle. If you are incredibly sensitive to pain, please contact your
Doctor or Pharmacist and speak with them regarding pain relief solutions.

pregnancy to book an appointment.

a tattooing procedure OR waiting until you are no longer breast feeding.

Do you measure my eyebrow shape before you start the procedure?

we use measuring techniques to obtain identical symmetry of your brows before we
start tattooing. We will also always ask for your opinion on the shape of the brow as

Brows and Microblading/Feather Touch Brows?

Ombré/ Powder Brows & Combination Brows are more defined in appearance
and once healed provide a look that is full however retains has a soft makeup
appearance. This technique also usually lasts longer than Microblading/ Feather Touch.

If you are wanting a longer lasting brow with fewer touch-ups required, then
Ombré/ Powder Brows or Combinations Brows may be the option for you.

Feather Touch technique involves the process of introducing pigment using small
strokes that mimic natural hair. Hair strokes alone may require additional re-touching
compared to other techniques; however, the result is simply divine.

Combination Brows?

Yes! You defiantly can, if you have previously had your eyebrows tattooed at Collective
Cosmetic Artistry. The cost is an additional $99 on top the touch-up price.
