Always Elegant has been providing cosmetic tattooing since 2014. While permanent makeup has been around for many decades, we were one of the first few salons in Sydney to do so. The length and breadth of our experience means we are able to deliver fantastic results. We provide a range of permanent makeup treatments including for the brows, lips and the eyes. We do colour and shape corrections, tattoo removal and lightening.
WHY CHOOSE US?
WE CARE ABOUT YOUR SKIN AND SAFETY
We practice strict hygiene and infection control. All equipment touched during treatment is wrapped or single use. The tattoo cartridge needles we use have a membrane to prevent backflow.
Our permanent makeup procedures are done with a tattoo machine, including microblading. We have found over our long experience, machine hair strokes create less trauma to the skin, which means better healing and retention.
We think it’s fantastic that the advent of microblading has made more people aware of permanent makeup and there are many talented microblading artists, but for us for the reasons above, our preference is machine work.
Machine work keeps the skin in good condition which means it is possible to refresh the area that was worked on over and over again.
In regards to eyeliner tattoo, we use iron oxide pigments near the blow out zones or on vascular lids.
WE KNOW HOW PERMANENT MAKEUP PIGMENTS WORK WITH SKIN
We have a thorough understanding of colour theory. We know how cosmetic tattoo pigments work in an individual’s skin. All skins have overtones and undertones and along with age, lifestyle and other factors, will produce a different colour result. What you see in the pigment bottle is often not what it will look like after it’s implanted in the skin. We select and modify pigment colours for the optimum outcome for each individual.
This means we are also able to do colour corrections on brows, lips or eyeliner that has warmed or become too ashy. This can happen if the cosmetic tattoo is very old, not the right tone for the skin it was used on, or if the light fastness of the colours in the pigment used is uneven.
WE PROVIDE FREE, NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATIONS
We understand permanent makeup is a big decision. That’s why we offer free consultations for all our permanent makeup treatments and with no obligation to book an appointment afterwards. During the consultation we will check you are a suitable candidate and will answer any questions you may have.
The cosmetic tattoo artist will draw the design on for you to have a look at, when appropriate. Colour will be discussed according to your skin type, advice provided and colour swatches on the skin when suitable.
WE PROVIDE VALUE AT A REASONABLE PRICE
All new treatment pricing includes the follow up appointment and aftercare kit. In addition, we provide reduced pricing for refresh treatments for returning clients.
Take advantage of our bundle pricing. Purchase 2 or more treatments and receive 10% off the full price. Treatments do not need to be done in the same day.
Build up store credit with our referral programme. Refer a friend for a cosmetic tattoo procedure who has not been to us before and both receive a $50 store credit. Store credits never expire and are accumulative for the referring person.
AfterPay is available in the salon.
COMPLIMENTARY AFTERCARE KITS
We want you to have the best results possible and to keep the area clean. We ensure you leave your appointment with everything you need. Our aftercare kits depending on the treatment include instructions, cleanser, ointment and applicators and a few goodies!
WE USE PREMIUM COSMETIC TATTOO PIGMENTS
We use pigments that meet the highest safety standards. Our preferred pigment line is Li Pigments. Li Pigments, which stands for Lasting Impressions, has been producing cosmetic tattoo pigments since 1992 and meets the highest safety standards including EU certification [EU-Resolution ResAP(2008)1].
Li Pigment colours are iron oxide and carbon based and are synthetically created at the molecular level to ensure there are absolutely no impurities. Colours are tested for an even and long light fastness so they fade true to colour.
Li Pigments are vegan and PETA certified cruelty free.

“I was looked after very professionally with care and patience. It was my first experience having nano brow work done, and after such a pleasant experience I have no concerns or issues returning for a touch up and further maintenance appointments. Merryn was very attentive and informative throughout my whole procedure.”
