I originally became interested in the idea of permanent makeup when my friend Jiawen told me that she wanted to get her eyebrows done (btw, Sherri does eyebrows for $300). The reason why I was drawn to Sherri (besides her almost perfect 5 star reviews), was that she highlights on natural beauty. I contacted Sherri through email to set an appointment for my consultation and eyeliner tattooing session.
The place was really easy to find and is located on the second floor of the building (above Mr.
Besides permanent makeup for eyeliner and eyebrows, Sherri also does lips, lash extensions, and skin care!
I think it’s sort of funny because there are so many of these magazine cut outs and drawings on an easel next to you and the mirror, but none of it is ever used. Overall my consultation didn’t feel like a real consultation as it only lasted less than 2-3 minutes (I think because she basically does the same super natural bare minimum eyeliner style on everyone for the first session, no matter what requests you give her).
You go out to the front desk, pay, and make a second appointment for about two weeks later. I didn’t have too much swelling the rest of the day after my eyeliner tattooing, but the next morning I woke up with pretty swollen eyes.
I wasn’t able to go to my second session until about 3 weeks later (after I got back from Hawaii). She was however nice enough to get a brush and some black eyeliner and draw in on one of my eyes how thick she would make it.
What’s great is that I don’t really need to apply eyeliner anymore for a casual everyday look! Again, here is the complete before (naked eyes) and after (fully healed after 2nd session).
I wear eyeliner everyday anyways so it seems so much better on the eye to tattoo than put products on it.


I went to Sherri in Los Angeles, and paid $250 for the upper eyelid eyeliner (lower eyeliner is an extra $250).
But I really liked how white the place looked, with the white curtains and light shinning in from the South side. During your first session, she keeps the eyeliner very simple and natural, only drawing along your lash line.
I think this is good because it IS semi-permanent and you don’t want to commit yourself to something too drastic so early on before seeing how you like it first. I sort of assumed that she could understand more than she could speak (since that’s usually the case). Yes it did, sort of. I think without the numbing cream, it would definitely hurt a whole lot more. The problem with this however is that black permanent eyeliner eventually turns a greenish color, and no one wants that! Eyebrow tattoos tend to last about a year, while eyeliner tattoos last on average 2-3 years before needing a touch up.
I liked my eyeliner tattoo, but it wasn’t visible enough and I wanted it thicker and longer. We were also told that after our eyes have been fully healed, we would have a week to call her if there were any touch ups that we noticed that we needed, and another appointment could be made free of charge! All I have to do is extend my eyeliner tattoo by drawing in a wing or thickening the end a little bit. I think maybe I was just scarred from getting my first tattoo that I don’t think I could ever do it again. There is a private parking lot where you (might) have to pay $1 after validation (if the guy is there). When you are getting permanent makeup, make sure that you are going to a professional who specializes in permanent makeup.


What’s great about this is that you don’t have to commit yourself forever, and the color will always look great! I still had some swelling two days after as well, but not as much and barely noticeable by others. My mom had her eyeliner tattooed when she was younger and I thought it was the craziest thing ever but now it seems to make so much sense. It looks beautiful and all you need to do is extend the liner a bit which is really neat but the photos with irritation and tears kinda make me aww haha though I’m glad it turns out all good in the end I feel like experiencing it myself while reading your post.
I really wanted to do semi-permanent tatooing for my eyebrows, but I’m not sure if I could handle the pain. I just saw your comment, went over to the bathroom, took off all my eye makeup and checked in the mirror very closely.
My advice for whether or not to do it is… Do you tend to like natural eyeliner makeup?
I’m wondering if the eyliner is still there or has some rubbed off a few years later? To me, I would compare the procedure to taking an exacto knife and carving back and forth, back and forth between your eyelids. For me it was worth it even though I like to add on more eyeliner, because it gave me confidence to be in front of others with no eye makeup on.
The worse part is that while you are trying to keep your eyes closed the whole time, it’s hard to!
