I understand that the process used in cosmetic tattooing is not a one-step process and may require multiple procedures to achieve the desired results. I realise that the healing process takes at least 4 weeks and that there will be at least 4 weeks between procedures, regardless of how many procedures are required to achieve the desired results.


I understand that the fee for each touch-up session of Permanent Makeup procedures is €200 and must be completed within 3-6 months of the initial procedure to qualify as a touch-up. Touch-up sessions of procedures completed by technicians other than Elizabeth Oakes or after 6 months of the initial procedure range from a minimum of 60% of full fee to 100% of full fee after 2 years. Payment is rendered upon completion of each session. There is a non-refund policy.

I understand that this is a cosmetic tattoo and with time pigments can and will fade or change according to metabolism, lifestyle, skin type, medications, age, smoking, alcohol, sun exposure and use of chemicals such as Retin-A and Glycolic acids. Touch-up maintenance work will be expected in the future to keep it looking fresh. 

I acknowledge that no guarantees have been made to me concerning the results of this procedure. I understand that there are some known possible complications of permanent cosmetic procedures including redness, swelling, puffiness, corneal abrasions, dark patches, allergic reactions, pigment migration and tenderness. I also understand that it is normal to lose approximately 1/3 of the colour during the healing process. I realise that after the procedure the colour will appear to be too dark and that in about 6 days the colour will appear to change and that after about 10 days the colour will appear in its final form and will appear softer since the colour has moved from the dermal to the epidermal layers of the skin. 

A patch test is advisable however it does not ensure a client will not have an allergic reaction. By clicking to accept the terms and conditions, you give your consent to waive the patch test. If waived, I release the technician and salon from liability if I develop an allergic reaction to the pigment or any products used. (If you require a patch test you must wait 2 hours before we can start the procedure).

I realise there will be a period of time when scabs may form and the skin will slough off and that I am not to touch these areas during this time. 

I understand the nature of the procedure and possible complications or adverse effects that may occur as a result of applied pigments, which include risk of infection, scarring, eye damage, inconsistent colour, hemorrhage, and possible spreading, fanning or fading of pigments and or allergic reaction to any products used. I fully understand that this is a tattooing process and therefore is an art not a science. 

I understand that in the event of an MRI or CAT scan I will need to inform my physician and/or technician that I have had permanent cosmetic procedures as a pulling, tingling, or burning sensation can occur during these tests. I also understand that having a permanent cosmetic procedure may restrict my ability to donate blood for one (1) year. 

I have received and acknowledged pre and post procedure instructions and agree to strictly adhere to such instructions including refraining from wearing makeup or contact lenses for 3-5days following the procedure. When I resume wearing makeup I will use only new eyeliner, lipstick, mascara, or brow pencil according to the procedure I have had done. 

I accept responsibility for determining the colour, shape, and position of the pigments that will be applied and will approve such applications before the procedure begins. I understand that actual colour of the pigment may be modified slightly due to the tone and colour of my skin and that because of the elasticity of the skin the shape may change slightly from that which I originally approved. However, I know that every effort will be made to make the final result flawless. 

I understand that topical anaesthetics will be used for my comfort and to enhance the permanent cosmetic procedure and experience. I realise that there are some people who are allergic to topical anaesthetics and will acknowledge this fact if I have ever had any such problems. 

I understand that if I have any skin treatments, laser hair removal, plastic surgery or other skin altering procedures, it may result in adverse changes to my permanent cosmetics. I acknowledge some of these potential adverse changes may not be correctable. 

I understand the taking of before and after photographs is required. I also understand that exceptional photographs or results may be used in advertising or promotional materials and give permission for such usage. I also understand that any photographs will not be used for such purposes if I withhold my permission. I understand that if I have had permanent make up in this area previously that there can be no guarantee of the outcome of the procedure. 

I understand that due to skin conditions and/or hair consistency a combination of microblading and shading may be necessary in order to achieve a natural look and you will be advised of this prior to the procedure.I have read and understand the contents of each item above. I acknowledge that this is a contract and that I have received no warranties or guarantees with respect to the benefits to be realised from or consequences of, the aforementioned procedure(s). I request the permanent skin pigmentation procedure, appreciating and accepting the permanency of the procedure. I further acknowledge that at the time of signing this consent to this procedure(s). I was of sound mind and capable of making independent decisions for myself and that no one has coerced me into making this decision; I am not under the influence of alcohol or drugs. I also agree not to hold either Elizabeth Oakes or anyone who may be assisting her liable for any reactions, outcomes, or occurrences that may or may not result from having this procedure(s).
