I have had the procedure done before but now wanted a darker, more dramatic look. Previously, I had my permanent eyeliner done by an eye doctor and then had a touch-up done by a cosmetologist who injected painkiller around my eyes before the tattooing. They used four shots above each eye and four below...and I can tell you that not only were these injections very painful, but they left my eyes black and blue for two weeks, and I have a good tolerance to pain. I couldn't go to work for two days, and had to wear tons of heavy makeup to cover the bruises. You tattooed both of my eyes, top and bottom, on a Wednesday night. I applied chilled ice-tea bags to my eyes all evening and the next morning before work. I used my usual eye makeup for work the next day and a few people said I looked like I "had a hard night". Thursday night I was on a plane to Arizona for my high school reunion. I rested my eyes a lot on Friday and used the cold ice-tea bags on my eyes again. On Saturday night I attended my class reunion with perfect eyes! Everyone said I looked as young as the day I graduated, and this was my 20th reunion. You should have seen all the guys who stood around talking to me.
