Tattoo’s often have tremendous meaning. Aside from the 3 am drunken *regretted* tattoo decision, most people put a great deal of thought and contemplation into such a permanent decision that literally changes their body’s appearance.
Tattoos actually tell a story or have personal significance. From a minimalist moon to a colorful landscape, flowers, or honoring loved ones, tattoos a very personal statement. Matching tattoos, symbols, bees, pet paw prints and quotes are among the most popular tattoos currently.
But the full sleeve of colorful impressionism is certainly hot as well.
Estheticians and cosmetologists see tattoos on clients all the time. What a great conversation starter! People love to talk about their tattoos and the meaning behind them, which creates a closer connection to your client, leading to stronger loyalty. This makes it the perfect opportunity to introduce a new service, tattoo waxing!
As an esthetician, we look at the health of the skin. Tattoos may be art, but the art is still applied to the largest organ of the body, the skin. Taking care of the skin is important with tattoos adding another layer to that, maintaining the life of the tattoo is now skin care.
The skin has a cellular turnover of 30-50 days, 30 days for younger people and the rate becomes slower as we age. Meaning, every month or so we have a new set of skin cells. A completely new set of skin. But dead skin cells need to be sloughed off to expose the fresh glowing skin. Some people moisturize when their skin seems dull and lifeless, but the moisturizer will have a tough job if the dead cells aren’t first exfoliated. When thinking of tattoos, over time the tattoo will look dull and lifeless, with an ashy appearance. To keep the artwork vibrant and long lasting will require two things, exfoliation and hydration.
Cirépil by Perron Rigot are the first to create a patented Tattoo Wax that has been produced with tattoos in mind.
Through research, development and testing, the perfect combination of gentle exfoliation and hydration has been established.
Formulated with coconut oil that is not only hydrating but also leads to a more comfortable waxing treatment and makes the wax super easy to apply. The formula is unique due to its ability to be gentle and yet exfoliating, which is not true of other wax formulas.
