Common Questions About Permanent Makeup

Prices for cosmetic tattoo procedures across the nation typically fall within the range of $600 to $1000, encompassing both the initial appointment and potential touchup. It's essential to confirm whether the touchup is included in the price, ensuring an accurate comparison.

Factors influencing price variability include:

  1. Artist's Mastery & Reputation: Highly skilled and renowned artists may charge at the higher end of the spectrum due to their expertise and reputation.
  2. Quality of Pigments & Tools: The materials used by artists can affect pricing, with premium supplies often leading to higher costs.
  3. Studio Reputation: Established and reputable studios may command higher prices due to their track record of delivering quality results and maintaining professional standards.
  4. Given the importance of cosmetic tattooing, particularly on the face, opting for the cheapest available may be counter-intuitive to your desired result.


Consider the following when selecting an artist:

  1. Experience: Look for artists with a substantial portfolio, indicative of their experience and skill level.
  2. Online Reputation: Research the artist's online presence, including reviews and testimonials from previous clients.
  3. Studio Cleanliness: Ensure the studio adheres to proper hygiene and sanitation standards to minimize risks.
  4. Customer Reviews: Review feedback from past clients to gauge satisfaction levels and the quality of service provided.

Cosmetic tattooing, commonly known as permanent makeup (PMU), is an integral part of the permanent makeup industry. This procedure involves embedding pigments into the skin to simulate the appearance of makeup, offering long-lasting results. However, the notion of permanence in cosmetic tattooing is nuanced.


The typical duration for cosmetic tattoos to maintain their optimal appearance ranges from 2 to 3 years, with some lasting up to 5 years for certain individuals. While this timeframe might suggest semi-permanence, the reality is more complex.


Cosmetic tattoos cannot be strictly categorized as semi-permanent because the term implies complete fading after a set period. Although the results gradually diminish over time, they may never fully vanish, thus defying categorization as either permanent or semi-permanent.


Advancements in techniques, pigments, and tools have significantly improved cosmetic tattoo procedures. As a result, these tattoos can often be refreshed, covered up, or even lightened through removal processes, providing individuals with the option to undergo the procedure again.


If you're considering refreshing or covering old cosmetic tattoo work, don't hesitate to reach out to us for assistance!

All our services are designed to minimize discomfort. While some clients barely feel any pain, others may experience slight sensations, which can vary from person to person.


To help alleviate any discomfort, our artists use topical numbing agents throughout the procedure. Most clients report pain levels of around 2-3 on a scale of 1 to 10, although this can differ depending on the specific service.


Rest assured, we prioritize your comfort and relaxation throughout the entire process. Any discomfort typically subsides quickly after the procedure.

  • For instance, clients undergoing lip tattooing may experience minor swelling and sensitivity to spicy food, which usually resolves within a couple hours. (It is totally worth it!)
  • On the other hand, clients with brow tattoos feel no discomfort or swelling after the service.

Yes! These services work great individually or together and because we offer both services at DAELA Portland, you can be rest assured to get the most amazing results possible.
