The Bobbie Charles Cosmetic Tattoo Journey:


Please keep in mind we never complete a consultation and perform your Cosmetic Tattoo procedure on the same day. 

Due to Queensland legislation we are required to complete an in-depth consultation and obtain written consent to place an individual order for your compounded anaesthetic prior to the procedure.  This ensures your procedure is pain free and there are no contraindications throughout your Cosmetic Tattoo appointment/s. 

During your consultation, our Brisbane based Nationally Accredited Cosmetic Tattooist will thoroughly discuss the following:

  • The full procedure including the anaesthetic being used, what you will feel during the procedure, discuss any of your concerns and give you all the pre and post care instructions.
  • We will help you decide on the perfect enhancement for you by asking questions about the makeup style you like to wear and what ‘look’ you’re hoping to achieve. We will draw a temporary design for you to manipulate with asymmetry correction in mind, until it’s perfect.
  • Your skin type and texture; as this will help us decide the longest lasting option for you.
  • Your skin tone, eye colour and hair colour. This will help determine the perfect blend of colours for your pigment. 

With all questions answered, your mind at ease and the confidence to go ahead with the procedure; we will then schedule all of your appointments. 

Your consultation will incur a $50 charge that is fully redeemable when you book your Cosmetic Tattoo procedure. 

To secure your Cosmetic Tattoo appointment, we will require a 50% booking deposit.


On the day of your appointment, allow up to 2.5 hours in total (the tattooing component of this is usually about 1.5hrs). High grade topical anesthetic is applied to the procedure area upon arrival, whilst an in-treatment anesthetic is continually applied throughout to keep you comfortable for the entire duration of your appointment.

Our Brisbane Cosmetic Tattooist will skilfully map out your design using mapping tools and your face structure for guidance. Hypo-allergenic pharmaceutical grade Cosmetic Tattoo pigments are then carefully implanted into the dermal layer of the skin, ensuring that the Cosmetic Tattoo finished result is perfect and fully meets your expectations as well as our Cosmetic Tattooists exceptionally high standards.

Post Procedure

Immediately following the Cosmetic Tattoo procedure, the enhancement may display mild redness and occasionally slight localized swelling. This usually subsides within 24 hours and should not hinder most normal day-to-day activities.

The tattoo colour will also appear substantially more intense – about 30% brighter or darker than desired. This will lighten and soften as the skin heals, usually within 10 days. It generally takes 4 weeks for the pigment to settle and the true colour to appear. It is only at this stage that the true color outcome of your Cosmetic Tattoo procedure can be fully assessed and appreciated.


Our Cosmetic Tattooist will explain all aftercare at the end of your appointment. Printed aftercare instructions and an aftercare kit will be provided to you. The treatment area should be kept clean and free of any water, sweat or creams until peeling is finished with the exception being lip tattooing which is to be keep moisturized at all times to prevent cracking.

It is recommended that make-up on or near the tattoo be avoided until the natural exfoliation or peeling has finished, usually 10 days. Any tiny scabs that may form should not be scratched off as this may dislodge pigment before the skin has had time to heal.

Perfecting Appointment

Cosmetic Tattooing is a two-step process. At your perfecting appointment 4 weeks post initial appointment, we will evaluate how your tattoo has healed and make any required changes. Allow up to 2 hours for this appointment. You can expect to lose up to 30% of the initial pigment colour, this is completely normal and the reason we schedule a follow-up appointment. Colour retention varies depending on the individual skin type, products used at home, exposure to elements and compliance regarding at home aftercare.

Due to a number of reasons, some individuals may require more than one perfecting appointment. Any further appointments following your perfecting appointment will incur an additional fee.

After achieving your desired look, we recommend an annual refresh appointment to ensure longevity of your tattoo.

We use high quality medical grade topical anaesthetics to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. Everyone has a different pain threshold; therefore, some people may experience a little more discomfort than others. We do everything within our power to ensure you are kept as comfortable as possible.

No waxing/plucking is allowed on the day of your procedure. As a part of your Cosmetic Tattoo journey, we look after all of your waxing needs.

Nothing! We move your eyebrow hair throughout the procedure when implanting the pigment into the skin.

For clients that have little to no natural hair, our advanced artists are highly skilled to perform procedures with or without hair present in the eyebrow area.

Two treatments are usually needed, 4 weeks apart. With most procedures, the colour fades 30-50% initially. For the second treatment, our Cosmetic Tattooist gauges the colour retention and how you are feeling with the colour before making any adjustments.

The microblading technique is the process of placing tiny hair-like strokes of colour into the skin using a hand tool. Powder brow technique is the process of implanting pigment into the skin with a machine, similar to a normal tattoo machine with a needle.

Cosmetic Tattooing generally lasts 1-2 years however each skin type will hold the pigment differently.

Ensure you use SPF daily and avoid your tattoo area where possible with facial peels, Vit A and sun exposure.

The pigment used is based on Iron Oxide, a safe non-reactive substance and are also vegan and cruelty free. We use pigment from a reputable manufacturer in the USA that are all tested and proven for over ten years. Cosmetic Tattoo pigment colours have been created for using on the face and are pre-mixed and sterilised, they have been formulated to allow for a ‘fade factor’, this makes them different from tattoo inks used elsewhere on the body.

This is different for every client. When we pick a pigment colour for you, we take into consideration your skin type, skin undertones, products you use on the skin and your everyday environmental factors. Pigments are either a ‘warm’ or ‘cool’ base and if left to completely fade off tattoos will turn ‘warm’ (orange, red, pink) tones or ‘cool’ (grey, blue, cool brown) tones.

If you are not local that is completely fine, we can arrange a video meeting to do a consultation. We can then proceed to book your appointments well in advance so that you can plan your trips to the clinic for your appointments.

Our advanced artists are highly skilled in Cosmetic Tattooing, we pride ourselves in ‘mapping out’ the treatment area to create an individualised shape. ‘Mapping out’ means we use your facial structure and measurement tools to assist in finding a shape that is perfectly suited to YOU. By using our mapping technique and drawing on your personalised shape we can provide you with a visual guide. This guide allows us to show you different shapes and thicknesses prior to your tattooing.

For various reasons, we do not allow eyelash extensions on for your eyeliner procedures.

We maintain our legal requirements for Queensland and hold a ‘Skin Penetration Licence’. All of our Cosmetic Tattooists are trained in advanced techniques and are fully Accredited. Our clinic upholds very high standards in infection control and use the latest technology, machines and pigments. We display all of our licensing and certification in Clinic, so you are able to view this at all times.

We recommend you DO NOT exercise until your tattoo has naturally exfoliated or peeled, usually 7-10 days. As perspiration comes from inside the skin, it can also push the pigment out of the skin, this can result in the pigment not being retained and the occurrence of premature fading. 

We recommended to avoid make-up on or near the tattoo until the natural exfoliation or peeling has finished, usually 10 days.

Cancer survivors will need to wait 6 months post remission before having Cosmetic Tattooing performed, you will need to obtain medical clearance from your oncology specialist.
