Frequently Asked Questions - Permanent Eyeliner

Permanent eyeliner frames the eyes and makes the eyelashes appear thicker, darker and fuller. It eliminates the need to apply eyeliner or eye shadow across the lashes. It enhances the shape and balances the symmetry of your eyes.


We can even create an elusion of yours eyes looking bigger and more open. Eyeliner can also enhance or intensify eye colour.

There is so much versatility with eyeliner if you prefer a more a natural look or a dramatic look the tattoo is completely tailored to you and your desired outcome.

Eyelash Enhancement Is extremely natural and very subtle. We place the pigment along the lashes and can be very thin or we can add thickness. This look mimics the same effect you get when you have a fresh eyelash tint and your lashes look thicker more defined and your eyes are slightly enhanced and more open.

Baby Eyeliner This is a step up from an eyelash enhancement it can be very thin or thick. We can go as thin as an eyelash enhancement but add a tiny little flick on the edge to open the eyes and create symmetry.

Stardust Eyeliner This is our absolute favourite look at THE MEK and can be a more dramatic look or a softer look but doesn’t have the crisp lines and instead is more ‘smokey’ and is designed to look like eyeshadow.

How much does it hurt?

Eyeliner is surprisingly nearly pain free. Every client has quite different pain tolerance, but we keep you extremely comfortable throughout the entire procedure. We use a pre numb ointment as soon as we finish your consultation for 20 minutes once your feeling nice and numb we start the procedure.

Our tattooist keeps your eyes closed with unique stretches that are amazingly comfortable and comforting. After each stage of the tattoo we then apply another numbing ointment to prevent any discomfort. The tattoo itself is the quickest part of the tattoo and is surprisingly easy to have done and we can have as many breaks as you need.
