Eyeliner Tattooing

Updated: Jul 10

In the realm of beauty and cosmetic tattooing, eyeliner enhancement is a timeless staple. It accentuates the eyes, defines their shape, and can transform the entire look of a face. For many, applying eyeliner daily is part of their routine, but what if you could wake up with already ready-to-go defined eyes every day without lifting a finger? This is where eyeliner tattooing, also known as permanent eyeliner or cosmetic tattooing, comes into play.

What is Eyeliner Tattooing?

Eyeliner tattooing is a semi-permanent technique that involves depositing pigment along the lash line to create a defined eyeliner look. It's a popular choice for those who want to save time on their makeup routine, achieve a consistent look, or have difficulty applying eyeliner due to medical conditions, poor eye sight or shaky hands.

Types of Eyeliner Tattoo Styles

There are several styles of eyeliner tattoos to suit different preferences and eye shapes:

  1. Eyeliner Enhancement: A subtle line performed just within the lashes that mimics the appearance of a fine eyeliner. Gives the result of fuller-looking eyelashes.

  2. Winged Eyeliner: Perfect for those who love a cat-eye look without the hassle of daily application. The wing's length can be tailored to client's preference. Long vs. short.

  3. Shaded Eyeliner (Stardust): Provides a soft, smudged effect that resembles traditional pencil or smoky eyeliner.

The Procedure

During the procedure, a trained technician will use a machine and/or manual tool to gently implant pigment into the skin along the lash line. Before beginning, the technician will typically consult with you to determine the desired thickness, shape, and style of eyeliner that best complements your eyes and facial features and what is most ideal for your skin type.

Benefits of Eyeliner Tattooing

  • Time-Saving: Eliminates the need for daily eyeliner application.

  • Consistency: Ensures your eyeliner looks near-perfect every day, regardless of weather or activities.

  • Waterproof: Unlike traditional eyeliner, tattooed eyeliner won't smudge or smear, making it ideal for active lifestyles.


After your procedure, it's important to follow the technician's aftercare instructions carefully. This usually includes keeping the area clean and dry, avoiding makeup and sun exposure for a few days, and applying a healing ointment as directed. The initial pigment may appear darker than the final result due to the healing process, so don't be alarmed if it seems intense at first.

Is It Safe?

When performed by a skilled and experienced technician using sterile equipment and high-quality pigments, eyeliner tattooing is completely safe. However, it's crucial to do your research and choose a reputable technician who adheres to strict hygiene standards and has positive reviews from previous clients. Another thing to look for, is if that technician shares their results on different age groups and different eye shapes because finding a versatile artist is also important.

Who Should Consider Eyeliner Tattooing?

Eyeliner tattooing is suitable for many people, including:

  • Busy Professionals: Save time on your morning routine.

  • Busy moms at home: Focussing more of your time on your loved-ones.

  • Athletes and Swimmers: Enjoy long-lasting eyeliner that won't smudge during activities.

  • Those with Vision Impairments: Difficulty applying eyeliner due to poor eyesight.

  • Lovers of makeup: Simply enjoying more how you look with eyeliner on rather than off.

Whether you're looking to simplify your makeup routine or enhance your natural beauty, this semi-permanent makeup technique can provide you with the confidence of waking up with flawless eyeliner every day.
