Eyelash enhancement tattoo, also known as eyeliner tattooing, has become an increasingly popular permanent makeup solution for those wanting a defined lash line. Eyelash enhancement tattooing offers bespoke looks. Whether it be to recreate your favourite winged eyeliner style or to delicately frame your eyes with a subtle enhancement, the options are endless.

What Is Eyeliner Tattoo?

Eyeliner tattoo is a form of semi permanent make up, a cosmetic tattoo along the lash line to create an eyeliner look. Both top and bottom lash lines can be tattooed, however, water lines cannot. 


In terms of the eyeliner tattoo procedure, a permanent makeup specialist uses a small amount of pigment and a digital device to lightly implant pigment colour under the skin. The end result is smudge proof, waterproof eyeliner, that looks beautiful day after day.


The initial treatment takes a few hours, with results being seen immediately. As eyeliner tattoo fades over time, we recommend a colour boost pigment top up every 12-18 months to keep your eyeliner tattoo vibrant.

Our Eyeliner Tattoo Procedure

This is what happens during the treatment: 

  • After cleansing the area in preparation for treatment, we will discuss your preferred eyeliner tattoo shape and style.

  • We will look at colour swatches together and decide on the best shade to achieve your desired look.

  • I will measure around the eyes, assess your features, and create symmetry in mapping your eyeliner tattoo.

  • Then, the needling process begins. I will gently implant the pigment under the skin with a series of light, featherweight strokes. These strokes form a superficial line in your skin where the colour pigment will seep in and settle.

  • Upon adding the final layer of pigment and leaving it to set for five minutes, I'll clean the area one last time before you see your beautiful new eyeliner tattoo!

  • A top-up session will be scheduled for around four to six weeks' time. At this stage, I will assess the results and fill in any gaps where the pigment hasn't taken.

During those four to six weeks, you'll need to follow the after-care instructions carefully and avoid scratching or picking at your eyeliner tattoo. Your eyelids will begin to heal shortly after the initial procedure, so you may feel a small amount of tenderness or irritation, just as you would with a tattoo elsewhere on the body. Rest assured, that is completely normal. 


Within the first 10 days of the initial treatment, you can expect your eyeliner tattoo to fade and change in colour. The final colour and shape of your eyeliner tattoo will emerge once fully healed.


Are eyeliner tattoos safe?

Absolutely! Eyeliner tattooing is harmless in execution. It is imperative to find a permanent makeup specialist offering lash enhancement services within a safe and sterile clinic or salon. Your specialist will be able to talk you through the treatment in detail and provide the best option for your desired look.

Will eyeliner tattoo fade completely?

An eyeliner tattoo will typically fade within 12-18 months, however fading varies depending on skin type and lifestyle. Should you no longer wish to continue with your eyeliner look, pigment can be removed with laser treatments.

Eyeliner tattoo, does it hurt?

The treatment lasts about three hours with only a slight sensation of pain, far less than a body tattoo as numbing cream is applied to relieve any discomfort. However, what you’ll feel depends on individual pain tolerance. You can expect to feel some pressure on the skin during the treatment.

Is eyeliner tattoo for older ladies?

Eyeliner permanent makeup is suitable for anyone over the age of 18. Due to the bespoke nature of semi permanent makeup, eyeliner tattoos can recreate a dramatic makeup look or subtly revive a lash line with lashes lost to the aging process.

Can I have eyeliner tattoo with wing?

Your eyeliner tattoo is mapped and customised in line with the appearance you would like to achieve. SYR Studio offers a variety of styles from slight lash line enhancement to a liquid liner look.

Eyeliner Tattoo Benefits

Eyeliner tattoo is increasingly popular because of the benefits that it offers. If you're still on the fence about whether to book a treatment, here are some of the advantages that just might persuade you to get your eyeliner done!

  • Long-Lasting Results

Eyeliner tattoo thickens and darkens the lash line while framing your eyes. It can help maintain an aesthetically pleasing eye shape for years to come. Annual touch-ups will make sure your permanent makeup always looks great with minimum effort on your part.

  • Easy Solution to Lost or Fine Lashes

Overtime, lashes are lost naturally to the aging process or health reasons. This treatment will leave you with instant long lasting results of a defined lash line in just a few hours.

  • Painless, Safe, and Effective

Eyeliner tattoo is totally harmless in its execution. Initially eyes can feel puffy, but this is only temporary and mild. Treatment is largely painless and the results are completely worth it.

  • Waterproof Results

A common problem with eye makeup is that it often gets smudged and spoilt by sweat or water. However, eyeliner tattooing presents none of these difficulties. Results stay flawless no matter how active your lifestyle.

  • Quick Process

With eyeliner tattooing, there is no downtime after the procedure, and you experience instant results. You can book an appointment in an aesthetic clinic or salon, have your permanent eyeliner treatment, and continue with your day straight after.

Things You Need To Know About Permanent Eyeliner

Before you undergo eyeliner tattooing, you should avoid blood-thinning medicines like aspirin or skin-thinning products such as retinol for at least two weeks before the procedure takes place. If you wear contact lenses, please bring your glasses the day of your treatment.

Detailed instructions will be given on how to care for your new eyeliner. Essentially you must keep the area clean. We recommend using Optrex infected eye drops for the first 3 days and apply the healing balm regularly until the skin has healed.
