To understand Permanent Make Up or PMU, one should know, although called "permanent" in the industry. It is really semi-permanent due to the delicate skin it's placed in and special pigments designed for use on the face, it will never completely disappear, but will need to be enhanced over time.  It's probably one of the most satisfying and truly appreciated gifts you can give yourselves.  Visit each section of our website for photos of Nikk's work.  Eyebrows | Eyeliner | Full Lip Color.  In each section there is more information on each service. 

Permanent Make-up is a multi step process. It differs from traditional tattoos in application and the pigments or dyes used. The pigments used are made of larger particles to prevent migration (running under the skin), as well as creating a softer more natural look for your face. Typically, you’ll need an initial application with 1-2 follow up applications 30-60 days after the initial to achieve the desired effect. After 2 decades of doing Permanent Make-up, Nikki has developed a schedule based on the average visits required per procedure to give the best results. These are listed on the price menu per procedure. These visits should be scheduled no sooner than 4 weeks after the last application and no longer than 2 months from last application for the best result. If you wait longer than the recommended, it’s very likely you’ll need another application to bring it up to the desired color. You want the area healed enough not to cause scaring but while the new pigment is still able to bind with the former application. The outcome will not be pleasing if you don’t do all visits recommended, or if the care instructions are not followed completely.

The prices below are based on the average process times required to achieve desired shape, thickness, and color depth. Color retention is unique to the individual. So necessary application visits can be less or more. Although “permanent”, over time the pigments will have to be refreshed. Things that can affect color retention other than poor after care are: going over old color, individual metabolism, overall health, sun exposure, smoking, medications / supplements, oily skin, skin care products for anti-aging & cell regeneration, changes in face shape, etc. will dictate how often you need maintenance. After the recommended schedule is complete, most people don’t need more for an average of 3-5 years. It is not forever permanent and there are no complimentary sessions offered. Because it is known & understood in our industry, it will always have to be maintained (just like your hair color or nails)

Although not maintenance free, this is still one of the most beneficial time saving beauty treatments you can give yourself.

Why see me for your permanent make up needs?

From the owner Nikki Thompson

Please visit my gallery of my healed work. Anyone can send you out looking ok. But how does it look healed? That's why I show the finished product-what counts. I'd personally be very worried if all someone show's is stock photos. What is wrong with their own work?

Then, there's the training & experience. I have over 100 hours in training from all over the USA. I've had classes in Georgia, Portland Or, Las Vegas NV, and Hollywood Fl. In advanced procedures. You have to qualify to take these classes. I do.  My experience in applying permanent makeup dates back to 2003. I do some type of permanent makeup daily. Some day's this is all I do. I see a lot of my competitors suggest they offer Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP), scar cover/camouflage and areola services but don't have photos to back it up. I do, lots.

My most welcomed referrals come from happy clients but I also have many physicians, salon owners, & estheticians in our area refer their clients / patients to me. That speaks volumes. And I so appreciate it! I hope you read all my information and look at my work and decide I am the best fit for you. Thanks!! Nikki "



Why is the work done in "sessions"? How are permanent cosmetics applied? How does Microblading compare to your brow technique? What is the difference between Micro Needling and Dry Needling? Who is a good candidate? How long will it last? Will it hurt? How will I look after? Does eyeliner only come in black? Other Precautions to Take:

I hope this has been informative. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any other questions or concerns. Consultations are not normally done for permanent make up because there is enough time built into the appointment to discuss shape, color & thickness. And this is a lot of information here so please reach out if you have further questions.

Thanks, Nikki
