Freckle tattoo

Freckle Tattoos or "freckling" as is commonly named now seem to be the new trend in 2017.
Freckling is basically the application of faux freckles on the same area where they appear naturally.
Natural freckles are spots in people with fair or light skin these spots are a concentration of Melanin the main component that gives our skin their hue and color.

Freckles are formed by triggering the melanin of the skin with sunlight. Freckles are not a skin disorder but people prone to it should avoid sun exposure to prevent the oxidation of the melanin forming more freckles... unless you are looking to achieve this trendy look.

Freckles now can be applied with semipermanent make up and also can be applied with conventional "rub-on-tattoos" sold in Amazon.

If you are thinking about doing this procedure as a technician or as a customer consider the following:

  • The pigment used will fade about 30% in the following weeks.
  • You may want to use two to three different colors, since freckles can be two-tonal.
  • freckles are not sound, in fact they are very asymmetrical and randomly located on the nose bridge, and upper cheekbones. 
  • Don't go to deep on the skin to prevent migration.
  • The most important, make sure you have a strong and detailed waiver signed by your customer about the whole process or outcome.
  • "If you are unsure about doing it , best to not do it at all" that goes for you as a technician and as a customer (if you are considering to have this done)
