The history of the Hand Method
There is just something special about art created by hand. It is robust and real, painstakingly made to evoke feeling. Museums everywhere celebrate the beauty and genius of works created with our own human hands, and you can see why.
Van Gogh, Monet, da Vinci, Renoir, and so many others capture our hearts year after year with their breathtaking artistry. Few things last so long and remain so beautiful, but when done by hand, permanent cosmetics most certainly can.
The history of permanent cosmetics began thousands of years ago. Sharpened sticks and stones were used to implant natural pigments into the skin. You can still see signs of these markings on preserved human remains today.
Mummies dating back to the time of Cleopatra still show visible signs of hand tattooed permanent makeup. Even Ötzi the Iceman has 57 tattoos still visible on his body, and he is over 5000 years old.
Today the hand method has been reinvented with SofTap® Brand Permanent Cosmetics.We have modernized this ancient form of tattooing with our patented, 100% disposable hand tools to give clients the most natural look in permanent cosmetics.
