Infection risk: The infection risk with Permanent Makeup (e.g. Eyebrow Tattoo, namely microblading, nano brow, KRASOTA, Eyeliner Tattoo, Lip Tattoo, BB Glow) Camouflage Tattoo, is that microorganisms are introduced under the skin
during the procedure, causing either a localized skin infection or a more serious bloodstream infection.
The potential sources of these microorganisms are:
- Contaminated and/or improperly reprocessed equipment.
- Contaminated environment.
- Client’s own bacteria on the skin.
- Unclean hands touching the treatment area.
While infection risk specific to the above services is limited in the literature, due to penetration of the
Needles or blades into the skin the risk is expected to be similar to that of tattooing/micropigmentation.

Infection risk:
The risk of infection with microneedling depends on the length of the needles being used (needles range in length from 0.25 mm to 3 mm) and the thickness of the skin at the treatment site. Although rare, infections can occur. The potential sources of infections are:
- Contaminated and/or improperly reprocessed equipment (e.g., if a contaminated cosmetic product is applied in conjunction with the needling).
- Contaminated environment.
- Client’s own bacteria on the skin.
- Unclean hands touching the treatment area.

Lifespan

All personal care services require ongoing maintenance, upkeep, and in many cases removal. This is true in dentistry for crowns, caps, and veneers; it's true for plastic surgery like breast augmentation; it's also true for lip injectables; and it is certainly true for cosmetic tattoo. At some point in the lifespan of your permanent makeup treatment it is necessary to "push the reset button" and have it all removed, and start over again.

The word "Permanent" in Permanent Makeup is a caution, not a guarantee. Many permanent makeup clinics use similar terms such as semi-permanent makeup. The reality is that permanent makeup pigments have varying lifecycles. For some people it can last longer, even permanently, where for others it disappears, and for some disappears prematurely.
