How are faux freckles done?

The artist tattoos freckles on the skin with a light brown warm color and a hand tool to ensure the proper depth.

The process involves:

  1. Cleanse and skin prep

  2. Choose the color, size, and amount of freckles

  3. Draw the design on your face to help you decide on the location, shape, and size

  4. Use a hand-held tool tattoo pen to tattoo the freckles

  5. Let the ink dry for 10-15 minutes

  6. Wait 24 hours before washing

How long do freckle tattoos last?

On average, your freckles last six months before you see them fade entirely away.

However, the length of time will vary depending on lifestyle, skin type, and aftercare.

Also, exposure to the sun and tanning beds can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment. Once completely healed, always apply sunscreen (50 SPF or greater).
