About the Artist
Erin Stuart is an award winning artist with over 15 years experience providing beauty services. Following a successful career in Australia, Erin travelled the world servicing clients throughout the UK and Europe. Since returning to Australia Erin has provided makeup services and trained and practised in cosmetic tattooing.
Whilst Erin is trained in many forms of cosmetic tattooing, she believes that to deliver the best results, it is important to chose your niche and specialise in the form you are most passionate about. This is what Erin has done with Semi Permanent Eyebrow Tattooing. As an exclusive Brow Tattoo technician, Erin has been able to develop a level of skill and artistry that provides her clients with a highly satisfying experience and unparalleled results.
The Brows of a Feather Studio was specifically built to cater for the Feather Touch & Ombre Mist Brow procedures and maintains a Personal Appearance Standards License issued by the Sunshine Coast Council. Brows of a Feather is a registered member of the Cosmetic Tattooing Association of Australia and maintains the highest standards of hygiene.
All materials used are disposed of following each procedure including the hand held micro blading tool / tattoo needle. This ensures all Brows of a Feather clients are only exposed to materials and tools that are contained within sterile packaging that is only breached immediately prior to their procedure.
Feather Touch Brows
‘Feather Touch Brows’ is a semi-permanent hair tattooing technique that will blend, thicken and enhance your natural brow shape to give you a fuller and more defined natural looking brow. The feathered hair strokes are delicately placed throughout the eyebrow area to mimic your natural eyebrow hair. The procedure is done with a hand held tool called a micro blade which gives the illusion of fine hair-like strokes.
Ombré Mist Brows
‘Ombre Mist Brows’ is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing technique that will give the illusion of a lightly powdered in brow. The pigment is deposited into the skin using a pixelated / dotting technique that leaves a soft mist of colour on the skin once healed. Colour density can be built up heavier in areas such as the arch & tail for a more bold or defined result if desired. This is also a great option for clients with oilier skin types.
Erin believes that these procedures best enable her to enhance her client’s natural beauty. It is also one that supports her philosophy that beauty services should define your personal features whilst preserving a look that reinforces your natural beauty. We reshape the eyebrows to frame your eyes and highlight your facial features. Every treatment is uniquely customised to suit the individuals personal preferences.

How long does Semi Permanent Eyebrow Tattooing last?
Everyone’s skin heals and responds to the pigment differently however the tattooing will generally last anywhere from 6 months (in very rare cases) up to 18 months. We do recommend a “brow refresh” for all clients within 12 months of your treatment.
What factors will affect my Eyebrow Tattoo?
- Lifestyle – How often you are in the sun, swim in chlorinated pools and exercise or perspire.
- Medications – Some medications can cause the skin to resist the pigment and hasten the fade out rate of the tattoo.
- Iron deficiencies / Anaemia / Frequent Smoking – this may cause increased bleeding during the procedure and hasten the fade out rate of the tattoo.
- Skin Type – The tattooing will generally fade out at a faster rate on oily skin.
- Glycolic scrubs, vitamin A & C and active skin care products will fade the tattooing faster and should be avoided for 1 week prior to your appointment. It will also assist the longevity of your tattooing to completely avoid using these products on the tattooed area post treatment.
- Alcohol / Caffeine – Both should be avoided the night before and on the day of your procedure.
Can you tell me about the healing process and aftercare?
Your brows will take approximately 7 – 10 days to heal. You may experience slight swelling for the first 3 – 4 days. You may also experience some flakiness throughout the healing process. It is very important not to pick or scratch the area. You can not get your brow tattoo wet for 7 days or sweaty for a minimum of 5 – 7 days after the procedure. It is important to keep the area that has been tattooed completely clean (no makeup, cleansers etc) throughout the healing process. I will provide you with aftercare cream that is to be applied VERY SPARINGLY 3 – 5 times a day until the area has healed completely.
Does it hurt?
A topical anaesthetic is applied prior to your treatment and continually applied to decrease discomfort throughout the procedure as well. It is important to remember that everyone’s pain threshold is different and your comfort is of the upmost importance throughout the whole duration of your treatment.
How will it look immediately after?
Bear in mind the colour will appear approximately 30 – 40% darker than the desired shade for the following 3 -4 days after your procedure.
How many sessions are required for Feather Touch or Ombré Mist Brows?
Feather Touch Brows is usually a two step procedure. Following the initial procedure a “touch up” treatment is required within 4 to 6 weeks. Although it is extremely rare (less than 2%) a client may require a third session (additional touch up). This is usually due to the clients individual skin type as some skin types are more resistant to the implantation of the pigment. The cost of this “additional touch up” is listed in “pricing”
How long should I allow for my appointment?
Feather Touch Brows take approximately 1.5 – 2 hours in total including a very thorough consultation and 20 minutes numbing prior to your treatment.
Can I wear makeup to my appointment?
We ask that you avoid makeup on the area being treated however if you are coming straight from work it is no issue at all – we can remove your makeup for you.
