The field of permanent cosmetics is not a regulated industry in the State of Arizona. Many providers are offering this service that is not credentialed. As per HB 2666-441-H, it is unlawful for a person to engage in the business of tattooing out of a home. Make sure you research your provider.



Absolutely! Permanent makeup (cosmetic tattoo) helps give back what time has taken away and saves you the precious time you normally spend "putting on your face". You can save countless hours in a single year that were formerly spent struggling to draw eyebrows evenly or eyeliner halfway straight...that's much extra free time! Plus, imagine the money you'll save not buying expensive cosmetics that rub off, smear, smudge, and disappear during the day. Permanent makeup is not necessarily intended to replace cosmetics completely. Because the color is placed "in" your skin and not "on" your skin a more natural, softer look results. When you're ready to kick up your heels and go out for a night on the town or want a different look, you can apply as much additional makeup as you wish.




Permanent makeup is the art and science of implanting color into your skin. It is putting the right color in the right place so you can look better naturally. Specialized instruments allow us to place color into the layer of skin known as the dermis. Because the outermost layer of skin, the epidermis, is always shedding and renewing itself; you are looking at the color through a thin veil of skin. When a procedure is completed, the color will appear darker than the final result. This is because the color is in both the epidermis and the dermis. The color in the top layer will flake off during the healing process lightening the overall effect. It is a cosmetic invasive procedure that requires skill, experience, and cooperation with your permanent makeup professional. You are an important part of the team.


Eyebrow procedures have the least swelling. With eyeliner, expect swelling for 2 hours. Lip color often involves the most swelling. You must let your micro-pigmentation professional know if you have a history of fever blisters so medication can be taken before your treatment.


Micro-pigmentation lasts a long time, but not forever. As you become accustomed to your new makeup, wanting more is not uncommon. You will want to freshen up your new makeup every couple of years. The darker the color, the longer it will stay unchanged in your skin. Natural, delicate colors are oftentimes more vulnerable to the effects of the sun, swimming, and breakdown by the body's natural response.


Topical anesthetics have been developed especially for permanent makeup procedures. These creams and gels are applied to the desired area before and during the procedure to assure you of the most comfortable experience possible. Most people describe the sensation as a "tickle. However, some people still experience discomfort, especially with lip color procedures. How much pain? On a scale of 1-10, you will usually be somewhere between 0-2. Rarely is anything stronger than a Tylenol necessary for the discomfort, and you won't have to miss work or take time off to recover.


You may have special needs for permanent makeup, such as scars, vitiligo, alopecia, or health problems. We will be happy to meet with you to evaluate your special needs. Micro-pigmentation practitioners are true professionals, so don't ever be embarrassed to ask.


Your investment in permanent makeup saves you time and money. Your investment can completely eliminate the daily time-consuming ritual of applying your makeup. And you'll save the embarrassment of smeared, smudged eyeliner and brows so common with mascara and brow pencils or powders. Rapunzel's works closely with you to achieve exactly what you want.

How Much Does Permanent Makeup Cost?

Permanent makeup is just that, permanent. If you go shopping for clothes, shoes, furniture, and other consumable goods, it is often wise to shop price. If you don't like the item you purchased, you have not made a lifelong mistake, and you can simply discard it. A discriminating buyer will often estimate how long an item should be appropriate in their life and base their price shopping accordingly. You do not have this same luxury with a procedure that is permanent such as plastic surgery, a tattoo, or permanent cosmetics. Having those services done will alter you for life.


This is one of the most often-asked questions when considering permanent makeup. The bigger issue is, do you really want the cheapest person you can find? In this industry, higher cost often equals higher quality.

There is some really bad permanent makeup work walking around where the individual decided to "price shop" and lived to regret it. A permanent makeup technician who is using proper sterilization, good equipment, and has a professional facility will not want to be the lowest-priced person on the block. They will invest their funds in sterile and sanitary business procedures, proper insurance, and for professional forms, and surroundings. A low-cost person will not have all of these, or they would be unable to "give away" their services.

Interview the technician being considered. Look at their portfolio. Is the facility clean and neat? Do they show you singly packaged equipment with sterile markings on the bags? Do they have certificates of continuing education? All of these items are necessary for success in permanent makeup.

Be sure that your technician informs you that permanent makeup procedures are a process and that you will need a second (and sometimes a third) layer of color implanted. Your total procedure cost should also include a topical anesthetic to minimize pain and discomfort during the procedure. In the permanent makeup industry, you get what you pay for! The reality is that permanent cosmetic procedures are an art; you are in good hands at Rapunzel's.
