Thank you for choosing Inez Tattoo! We look forward to working with you to create the perfect cosmetic tattoo for your unique facial features. First, here’s a few tips on how to prepare for your appointment before visiting the studio.


  • Please book your first appointment using our online booking page for all new brow and lip services.

  • Touch-up appointments can be scheduled by emailing

  • To respect the time of our artists, a non–refundable deposit is required to schedule and secure your appointment and is deducted from the total price on the day of your appointment. This deposit is to ensure that you are committed to undergoing a cosmetic tattoo. If you cancel or miss your appointment, you will forfeit your deposit. Please email if you need to reschedule or change your appointment time.

For best results, we recommend the following:

  • Do not consume alcohol, caffeine or blood thinners (aspirin, ibuprofen, Niacin, fish/primrose oil) 48 hours before your procedure to avoid excess bleeding.

 Avoid the following facial procedures 3 to 4 weeks before: 

  • Botox and fillers

  • Chemical peels (Glycolic, Pumpkin, Alpha Hydroxy, Salicylic Acid)

  • Laser Facials, both ablative and non-ablative, including Fraxel, Co2, and IPL laser treatments

  • Exfoliation and retinol product.

  • Complete the following cosmetic procedures prior to your brow tattoo
    - Brow waxing/shaping (2 days in advance)
    - Brow tinting (1 week in advance)

Avoid sun/tanning bed exposure for 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your procedure. As your skin exfoliates from a tan or sunburn, it will take the tattoo pigment with it. If you arrive with signs of sun exposure, we will unfortunately have to reschedule your appointment and you will forfeit your deposit.

On your appointment day, we ask that you come prepared to be as relaxed as possible for the duration of your cosmetic tattoo so its a fun and exciting experience for you!

  • Eat a light snack around 1 hour before arriving

  • Wear relaxed clothing if you desire that you can sit and lay down in for an extended period of time and be comfortable!

 Here’s what to expect from your experience upon arrival:

  • Consultation & in-depth design: (30-60 minutes) This is the opportunity to meet with your artist and create a plan for your tattoo. Please bring photos of tattoo examples that are similar to the look you’re hoping for. As artists, we will work with you to design your custom cosmetic tattoo to highlight your natural features. Our designing process is inclusive of working with all discussed factors, and most importantly YOU to create the perfect shape for you that you love. From there, we choose a pigment match based on your skin tone and hair colour. We’ll also discuss care and healing during this time.

  • Numbing: (15-20 min) Prior to the procedure, a topical anesthetic (5% lidocaine ointment) is applied. We also layer an additional numbing agent during the entire tattoo to increase your comfort. A lot of our clients even fall asleep!

  • Tattooing: (Duration depends on service) Your tattoo artist will carefully implant pigment to mimic the appearance of natural hair, lip colour, freckles or areola within the designed shape.
