There are contraindications for permanent makeup.  If you have a consultation/appointment for permanent makeup and the tattooist/technician/artist doesn't ask you about your medical history, please consider finding another person to tattoo your permanent makeup.  You do not want to put yourself at risk.

You may need to ask your doctor if have glaucoma (eyeliner procedure), pressure in your eyes due to high blood pressure (eyeliner procedure), are predisposed to infectious endocarditis, have active skin cancer in the area to be tattooed, are a hemophiliac, have healing disorders, on blood thinners, uncontrolled high blood pressure or had mitral valve disorder.

Let me know if you have/had allergic reactions to topical anesthetics.

Other Contraindications:

AHA’s (lactic, glycolic, citric, retinoic and tartaric acids) or any OTC creams and lotions for tone correcting, anti-aging, exfoliating, fading can discolor your permanent makeup.

Flue or Cold:  Please stay home, reschedule your appointment if you have cold or flu or sinus/respiratory infection.
