Why is Permanent Makeup so Expensive?

August 19, 2023

A very frequent question that we get is why is permanent makeup so expensive? Well, we’re here to tell you why permanent makeup services cost so much! There are many factors that people need to take into consideration when it comes to the price of these services. You also have to remember that these services are semipermanent. It’s very close to booking tattoo sessions which are also costly!


The location of an artist’s studio can also determine the price of the permanent makeup services they perform. The city they’re located in and the prices of rent, goods, and services there can impact the costs of the artist’s services. Especially in New York City, one of the most expensive cities in the world, the prices of permanent makeup services can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars. 

Skill and Technique Quality 

The skill and technique used by your artist play a huge role in the pricing of your services. Artists with high-quality instruments and resources as well as great expertise provide quality results with better healing results than an artist who does not. Some artists do not have proper training or equipment that may harm you during the process and not achieve good results. So, it’s important to find an artist that will perform a proper permanent makeup service in a safe and clean environment. 

Touch-up Sessions

Touch-up sessions are not included in your initial appointment. The price of those touchup sessions depends on how much pigment faded from your brows. Touch-up sessions tend to take the same amount of work and time that is initial appointments do. It’s important to keep in mind that touch-ups require the same attention and detail.
