Pigments

Colorants are substances that you apply to change the color of something else, and there are two main categories of colorants: pigments and dyes. What is the difference? It actually has more to do with the carrier solution that delivers the colorant. Pigments have colorant particles that do not dissolve or go into solution, which is technically called a suspension. Colorant molecules in dyes dissolve and form a solution.

For tattooing, we use pigments, because they do not dissolve in the body and get wiped away. We would not tattoo with Henna, for example, because it is a dye and would not last. Pigments have staying power and good fade resistance.

Pigments are mainly inorganic compounds, metal salts, with the notable exception of carbon, and traditionally come from geological sources. Iron oxide (rust) is dark red, carbon is black, mix the two together, and you get a dark rich black. Ochre, which is iron oxides mixed with clay, gives brown and flesh-tone colors. Copper salts are typically used to make blue tattoo pigments. That’s just a few examples of pigments used in permanent makeup ink.

I went to Dawn in 2017 after years of wanting the perfect eyebrows. 3 of my co-workers recommended Dawn to me and I had my eyebrows microbladed. During my initial consultation, Dawn took her time taking photos and explained how the measurements on my face were a better suit than how I had been previously drawing my eyebrows. I proceeded with getting them done and accepted her professional opinion and was so glad I did!!!! My brows looked fantastic and I got so many compliments that I even had 3 more friends get their brows done with her. She has over 30 years of experience in the permanent makeup industry and that gave me confidence that she was good. She continues to keep up her credentials with the newest trends and has all her certificates are posted in her office in plain view. I’ve had my initial retouch and now after 1 year going back to have them touched up again. The price was completely worth it! Remember ladies, this is your face, invest in it because it’s the first thing people see and you’re worth it!read more

I went to Dawn about 8 years ago for brows, lips & liner. I was too chicken to ever go back for a touch up as was recommended, but my eyeliner is still pretty much perfect. My lips had scar tissue that she was able to camouflage beautifully and the color was perfect. Mind you - my natural lip color was close to flesh tone due to scarring and vascular issues. My brows were flawless. I recently decided to try Microblading and went to someone else because I heard she was great and I didn’t want to drive too far. I ended up with brows that were too sparse and had spots missing. Also - the color was wrong. I asked her to correct her work and she charged me! Can you believe that? I learned my lesson. I’ll be contacting Dawn for a full face again. She’s the actual best. I’ve had good and bad work - let me tell you - this is your face ladies. Don’t cut corners and try to save money. She is worth every cent.read more

I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my eyebrows! Dawn is so thorough, going over everything with her clients that’s she thinks needs done. She listens intently to one’s thoughts, and she creates eyebrows that look so natural. I felt completely confident that everything would turn out because of the pictures she took beforehand and the grid she used to help her know what needed to be done. She’s the best, and I’ve received so many compliments on how my eyebrows look! Plus, she is so friendly!!!! Her assistant, Maria, is great, too! You can tell Dawn and Maria have a wonderful relationship in the way they interact with one another. :)read more

Well when I went in I was a little nervous. I did not want my eyebrows to enter the room before me. Dawn spent a good 30 minutes talking with me and going over what I liked and did not like. She is very knowledgeable about her skills. I love my eyebrows. I went in today for my follow up and had a few more strokes added. My eyebrows looks awesome! They look natural! I love waking up and not having to put on my brows. Dawn is great and Maria her Admin. Assistant is great. Overall very pleased would highly recommend Accent Makeup. Thank you Dawn and Maria!read more
