Microblading Eyebrows

 Microblading eyebrows lifts your eyes and gets you noticed.  Whether you have sparse eyebrows, thin eyebrows, or no eyebrows you can wake up with beautiful brows with permanent makeup.  Natural looking, nobody will know your beauty secret.  It is a simple and quick eyebrow tattoo solution.


Permanent Eyeliner

Permanent eyeliner tattoo is for those who want more definition around the eyes. Permanent eyeliner tattoo doesn’t smudge and thus, eliminates the need to check in the mirror for dark circles under the eyes.

Lip Blushing and Tinting

Look your best with SofTap Permanent Makeup Lip Liner, Blushing and Tinting. Lipsticks can dry our lips, smudge and wear off. Even worse, we eat it.  Say good bye to reapplying lipstick throughout the day. And say Hello to beautiful, natural looking colored lips.

Microblading Corrections

If you’re not happy with your current design or color, there may be a solution for you.  Color and design can be altered in most microblading cases.  Come in for a free consultation.

Color Boost

Microblading pigment fade over time.  “Color Boost” procedures are for clients who have had previous permanent makeup completed by Pretty Please Studio, and need a refresher application of  pigment to perk up their color. 


Microblading for Men

Men benefit from Permanent Makeup microblading.  As we age, we start to loose definition around the eyes.  Some men benefit from Lash Line Enhancer or Guy- Liner.  It’s subtle, but gives you the extra definition that you once had. 

 Live an Active Life

Microblading Benefits

Active Lifestyle

Whether you’re swimming, sweating, or simply on the go…permanent makeup microblading will not smudge or wash off.  Consistently beautiful color and shape is the result, giving you the freedom to live an active life while looking your best.

Natural Looking and Subtle

We recommend the use of subtle colors and classic brow design to achieve a “Day Wear” look.  For occasional bolder “Evening Wear” look, simply apply topical makeup over your permanent makeup microblading.

Allergies and Sensitivity

Ideal for women who are allergic or sensitive to topical makeup such as eyeliner pencil or mascara.  Helps you avoid daily use of products that may cause inflammation, runny eyes, red eyes and irritation.


You guessed it, you will look years younger. Perk up your eyes and lips.  Whether you have no eyebrows or eyebrow hair loss, we will create classic makeup artistry to draw attention to your beautiful eyes and lips. Adding subtle color and definition to your eyes are essential to making you look younger and defined.


Say Goodbye to drawing on your eyebrows and eyeliner every morning.  And ditch the lipstick. You’ll wake up looking refreshed and beautiful everyday.

We use topical anesthetics specifically designed for Permanent Makeup before and during the procedure to ensure comfort for our clients.  Some clients describe the treatment as “feeling pressure, but feels numb”.

SofTap is a manual hand held tool that holds like a pen.  Sterile, single-use needles gently tap pigment into the dermal layer of the skin.  It is not an electrical device, therefore, does not produce noise or vibration.
