In just a few years, permanent makeup has become one of the hottest beauty and body modification trends in the world. With endorsements from celebrities and social media influencers fueling the hype, traditional makeup technicians and tattoo artists alike have moved to add permanent makeup procedures to their list of offerings. Whether you’re just getting started in PMU or need to restock your supply of permanent makeup accessories and tools, PainfulPleasures has you covered.
Permanent makeup basics
Most permanent makeup procedures are performed with a permanent makeup machine, which is essentially a pen-style rotary tattoo machine. Permanent makeup pigment, however, is different from traditional tattoo ink. Because it needs to match and blend with different natural skin tones, permanent makeup pigments are much less densely concentrated than tattoo ink. Additionally, permanent makeup pigment is deposited only into the epidermis, or the outermost layer of skin. That means “permanent makeup” can last a long time, but will eventually fade as these outer layer skin cells are shed and replaced by the body over the course of months and years.
Permanent makeup accessories
In addition to permanent makeup machines and pigments, we offer lots of permanent makeup accessories to improve the experience for both you and your clients, and ensure their permanent makeup heals beautifully.
Permanent makeup machines can be set up with different equipment and accessories to make their operation more convenient and comfortable. Browse our selection of permanent makeup machine tips for disposable tip and grip combos that make safety simple. With a permanent makeup power supply and other permanent makeup procedure supplies like a foot switch and grip cover, you can increase the flexibility of your machine while also increasing its ease of operation.
Even though permanent makeup generally hurts less than tattooing, some clients still worry about the discomfort or pain of the procedure, so it’s a great idea to keep a supply of permanent makeup anesthetics on hand. You should also send clients home with plenty of permanent makeup aftercare supplies, like skin conditioner and aftercare salve, which help the skin heal as quickly and clearly as possible so that the permanent makeup application achieves the desired result.
If you’re just getting started in permanent makeup, we also carry educational PMU books and DVDs that will help you learn everything you need to know to perform permanent makeup procedures safely and correctly with beautiful results. In addition, you can practice your skills risk-free with our permanent makeup practice skins.
