Pre-care Instructions

Please read carefully

If you wear contact lenses, please bring eyeglasses to all appointments! You must wear eyeglasses for 3 days post procedure for all eyeliner procedures. Then you can wear your contact lenses. Lenses must be clean or new!

If you have ever had (even if years ago) a fever blister, cold sore, shingles or chicken pox, it is recommended you obtain a prescribed antiviral medication from your doctor or dentist. Fever blisters are very common as a side effect of lip tattooing.

EYELINER: Any lash perming or tinting must NOT be done in the 72 hours before the procedure, and not re-applied until 30 days after the procedure. If you wear fake lashes, they must be removed at least 48 hours before the procedure and not re-applied before 45 days after.

EYEBROWS: All brow waxing, tinting, or threading must be stopped one week prior to the procedure.

Please being sunglasses as you may be light sensitive. It is not a bad idea to have a ride home after an eyeliner procedure if you are light sensitive.

Please do not book an appointment before any major events, like a vacation, social event, or wedding. Remember, tattooing is an art and normally requires at least one touch-up appointment 6-8 weeks following the initial treatment meaning the entire process can take 3-4 months.

Clients may be more sensitive to pain if on their period or during very stressful times in their life, so try to plan accordingly. Lasting Impressions will not provide you with any medications other than topical anesthetic for the procedure. If you feel the need to self medicate, you must have a designated driver to provide you with a ride home.

Avoid the sun and/or tanning bed for one week prior to your procedure. If you have a sunburn the procedure will be not be done.

LATISSE or similar lash treatment products MUST be discontinued at least 7 days prior to any procedure.
All clients must be off Retin A or Renova 30 days prior to all procedures.
Clients must be off Accutane for one year prior to all procedures.

Please avoid any alcohol within 48 hours of all procedures.

Avoid the following for 72 hours prior to all procedures, unless medically needed:
Aspirin or similar products
Niacin and Vitamin E
Gingko Biloba, St Johns Wart or Evening Primrose Oil

If you have any condition that requires you to take antibiotics prior to going to the dentist, the same will be required prior to any tattoo work.

If you are on blood thinning medications then you will need a medical release from your physician to proceed with the procedure.
