The first person who got my attention with semi permanent make up was the legend himself - Mr Michael Jackson! I remember watching him on television around 1984 and thinking to myself he sweats so much whilst dancing on stage and his eyeliner never seems to run. I then found out that he had it tattooed on. In my teenage years I often thought it would be great to have my eyeliner tattooed on as then I could wake up each morning without having to apply it. I wouldn't have to worry when I went swimming or away on holiday.
In the early 90's, a current leader in the micropigmentation business tried to start a semi permanent business, but was just slightly too early for the general public to show an interest, she is now an extremely successful business woman. More and more people nowadays are having their eyebrows, eyliner and lips tattooed.
As well as saving precious time each day, semi permanent make up can help people who are partially sighted, wear glasses and struggle to apply eyeliner, or draw on eyebrows. Lip tints can add definition to beautiful lips.
