Pure Skin Clinic Clients can now wake up with beautiful brows every day! The latest trend in beauty has finally arrived to our clinic! Eyebrows are extremely important in giving your face character and expression, whilst framing and accentuating your eyes. If your brows have been over plucked, are patchy, non-existent or you’re just tired of drawing them on, cosmetic tattoo for your brows is the perfect solution.

The first method of Featherstroke eyebrow tattoo is the latest hair-simulation technique for beautifully natural-looking eyebrows. Featherstroke, (also known as microblading), creates a gentle ‘feathered’ effect and looks completely natural because it mimics the real eyebrow hair and can be individually customised depending on the client. Featherstroke Eyebrow tattooing uses a hand tool with fine needles to apply fine strokes into the skin. A micro pigment is then applied, filling the strokes with colour and creating the appearance of fine hairs. Brows can be subtly coloured or completely remodelled as each new strand is intricately etched and coloured by hand.

The second method is using the same rotary machine and creating a very natural, lifelike looking eyebrow. This is called the hair stroke method, which essentially is using the tattoo needle to create lots of little hair like impressions by implanting pigment in a line under the skin. The advantages are that it does look very natural, like real hair. It is perfect for people that already have quite good hair coverage, and for those who want to fill out gaps in their eyebrows where hair is missing, because the strokes can be made to mimic the natural hair present in colour, thickness and angle. In younger skin, it can even work very well for creating a complete brow where little to no hair exists.  


Cosmetic tattoo eyeliner adds depth, definition, and lift to the eyes so that they appear larger and more striking, and lashes appear thicker and fuller. Eyeliner “frames” the eyes and can make eyelashes appear darker, fuller, or thicker. It can enhance the shape or balance (symmetry) of a person’s eyes, create the illusion of larger eyes, or affect how the spacing of the eyes is perceived. Besides convenience, a Cosmetic Eyeliner Tattoo is the perfect solution for anyone with allergies, contact lens sensitivity, dexterity issues, vision problems or an active lifestyle. Permanent eyeliner can be as natural or as sophisticated as you wish, depending on the shape of the eyeliner you would choose.


Lip Liner cosmetic tattoo creates an attractive lip line that defines the lips and enhances the shape of the mouth whilst giving the appearance of fuller lips.  Lip liner tattoo is ideal for people who have no definite lip shape, pale lips, small lips and for those that would like to emphasis the mouth. It is especially successful for sun damaged lips, uneven lips or lips that have lost the shape as a result of cold sores or injury.

SMP – Scalp Micropigmentation

A medical grade tattooing technique

Geelong’s own AWARD WINNING cosmetic tattooist Kelly Inglis is now performing SMP or Scalp Micropigmentation.  This specialised treatment is also called scalp tattoo or head tattoo.

SMP is the process of coloured inks or pigments being implanted with specialised needles into the skin to create densification where a client is experiencing hair loss.This is a medical grade tattoo technique where tattoo pigments are placed on the scalp in a stippling pattern to look like a shaved head of hair. This reduces the contrast between the colour of the hair and colour of the scalp so it is not as easily seen.

When done properly, an observer can’t tell the difference between a shaved head and a tattooed head. We do this with thousands of very tiny dots placed in the scalp at the base of a hair and between the hairs.

SMP is very effective in treating thinning hair in both men and women, balding in a shaved scalp taking on the appearance of a bold look and also in the treatment of scalp scars caused by previous surgeries or skin diseases such as Alopecia Totalis. SMP is a permanent hair concealer for both men and women with results lasting 5, 10 or even more years before a colour boost session is needed.

SMP (Scalp Micropigmentation) is the quickest non-surgical procedure for the following treatments;

  • Scalp enhancement to achieve a shaved look,
  • Male & female pattern hair loss for long hair density,
  • Recreating or thickening receding hair lines,
  • Crown hair loss,
  • Neurological scars,
  • Burns to the scalp,
  • Densification in conjunction with hair transplantation,
  • Alopecia conditions,
  • Camouflaging hair loss due to trichotillomania, and
  • To further enhance densification for ex hair transplant clients who have exhausted their donor area.

Treatment: Treatment times may vary depending on the hair loss.  The scalp micropigmentation procedure for the average person is 3 sessions of 3 hours at 1 week apart. However this can vary with sessions lasting 2 to 4 hours or even requiring a 4th session in some cases.

Pricing: Pricing for SMP has many variables dependant on the amount of hair loss and the desired result.  The Norwood scale is also taken into consideration with future hair loss not to be overlooked. 

Consultation: Please call ahead to book a time for your consultation.

Those suitable for SMP include:

  • Hair thinning or regional balding where the patient desires to appear to have a fuller head of hair, with or without a shaved scalp,
  • Scalp scars from scarring alopecias,
  • People with autoimmune diseases such as refractory alopecia areata or alopecia totalis,
  • Women who are balding or thinning who are not responsive to minoxidil or other medical treatments and do not qualify or wish to have hair transplantation,
  • Neurosurgery scars and scars from head trauma, surgeries and/or hair restoration procedures,
  • Chemotherapy patients, who do not grow back significant amounts of their hair after treatment,
  • Deformities in hair restoration patients resulting from unplanned processing hair loss in men, whose hair transplants can’t achieve the amount of ‘fullness’ they expect,
  • People with wide or obvious scars from donor strip harvesting techniques,
  • People who have open donor scars from hair transplant surgery from harvesting techniques between the 1950’s and early 1990’s, from strip harvesting surgeries, or from FUE techniques that create punctate scars,
  • Patients who have old pluggy or corn-row look with or without donor site depletion and a see-through donor area, and
  • People who dislike using topical concealers or wigs.
