Things to consider with an eyeliner tattoo

Just like with any cosmetic tattoo, there are three key things to consider to ensure your eyeliner tattoo is a success. As the saying goes, your eyes are the window to your soul, so your eyeliner tattoo should complement your eyes.

1. Thickness of the eyeliner tattoo

The thickness of the eyeliner tattoo line is crucial because it is the thickness that will largely determine how you look once your tattoo is finished. A very thin soft line is the right choice for clients wanting a natural look, where the tattoo is used simply to help accentuate the eye and give the appearance of fuller lashes.

2. Colour of the eyeliner tattoo

What any good cosmetic tattoo technician will advise is that the colour you choose is one of the most important decisions you will make with regards to your eyeliner tattoo. Colours that have lots of depth in pigment for example deep black or very dark brown are best to use for longevity. Softer shades provide for a more natural look but also tend to fade quicker over time.

3. Length of the eyeliner tattoo line

A line which is slightly longer than the natural eye can make the eyes appear bigger. However, a line which is too long can look too comical. Less is always more with eyeliner tattooing, as you can always add a little length during your free touch up session.

A beautifully applied eyeliner is fundamental in accentuating and enhancing the shape, colour and size of your eyes. A skillful technician will give you a perfectly applied eyeliner in your choice of thickness and style, that is waterproof, smudge-resistant and long lasting.
