Why Inked & Blinked

"I help women feel more confident through permanent makeup, which also saves them time and money." -Christina

Introducing the Face Behind Inked & Blinked!

My name is Christina, and I am the proud owner of Inked & Blinked permanent makeup artistry. I want to take a moment to emphasize that I am not a jack of all trades, but rather a master of one: permanent makeup.

With almost 8 years of experience, I have dedicated myself to mastering the art of enhancing natural beauty through permanent makeup. My specialties include eyeliner, brows, and lips.

It is essential for me to highlight that I also specialize in 3D Areola Nipple tattooing for breast cancer survivors. As a gesture of compassion, I offer this service complimentary to those who have bravely battled breast cancer. It is an honor for me to contribute to their journey.

With thousands of people tattooed, I have witnessed the transformative power of permanent makeup and the joy it brings to individuals. I’ve embarked on countless trainings all over the world. It was during my advanced trainings in England that I found my calling. This style of tattoos resonated with me, I realized this advanced approach was not widely established in America. The results are beautifully airbrushed and pixelated into the skin! "Enhancement" verses "Harsh".


In addition to my professional pursuits, I lead a life filled with adventure. I love to travel and visit two different countries every year, immersing in new cultures and diverse traditions. This constant exploration of the world is an inspiration for my work. I come from a large and supportive family, with 3 brothers and 2 sisters. I'm a 26-year-old with a deep passion for animals. As the proud owner of two cats named Perri and Little Man, I particularly adore standard poodles. When it comes to dining, I frequently indulge meals at Merlion and Whataburger. Additionally, as an insider at Star Cinema Grill, I relish the magic of movies.

Together, we can uncover your natural beauty and embark on a transformative experience at Inked & Blinked.

What is Permanent Makeup?

Written by: Owner of Inked & Blinked

    Would you be surprised to learn that women spend almost 2 full years of their lives applying makeup? Could you think of something else you could do if you could have that time back? Permanent makeup is great for those who want to save an average of 15-45 minutes of their day. Imagine waking up with perfect brows, luscious lips, and elegant eyeliner. Permanent makeup is also perfect for those who struggle with hair loss, loss of color in lips, allergies, and those with sensitive skin who often cannot wear makeup. Permanent makeup is a tattoo. Using tattoos as makeup has always been popular, saving an individual time and allowing for a very natural look. Permanent makeup is “permanent” because pigment is tattooed into the upper reticular part of the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo-like body art, fading can, and often does, occur, requiring minimum maintenance, which is referred to as color re-enhancement or color refreshing.

Since permanent makeup is a tattoo, it is regulated under the Texas tattooing department. The only place you should ever receive permanent makeup is in a licensed tattoo shop or suite.

Believe it or not, most establishments do not have employees who are properly licensed and trained. 
    

Many people are being led to believe that the term "microblading" is not a tattoo process. The same applies to lipblush, lip ombre, blah blah blah., This is not true. Permanent makeup, micropigmentation, microblading/stroking, embroidery are all marketing tactics for the same procedure – tattooing.  Any time color is placed into the skin with a an object you are CREATING A TATTOO!

Permanent makeup will not wash away or smear. However, through time, it may fade and soften in color, just like body art work. There is no exact time frame for when an individual needs to return for a " maintenance visit". With proper care, your procedure can hold its color for up to 5 years. Maintenance can be necessary anywhere from 1.5 to 5 years.

Remember, you get what you pay for, so never shop for price when looking for your permanent makeup artist. This is your face, after all, and a bargain price does not remain a bargain if you have to spend more money to correct a botched job. The real artistry involves the application of color theory to ensure the best results for all skin undertones. There is a large range of colors and styles to choose from, resulting in a natural appearance. 

The permanent makeup procedure begins with the application of a highly effective topical anesthetic to make clients as comfortable as possible. It may be slightly sensitive at times, but most clients experience no pain. In fact, many find the experience rather relaxing. All procedures are done by using a machine.

Each client is sent home with an after care kit containing instructions, healing schedule and after care products.

I look forward to seeing you!
