Semi-permanent eyebrow tattoos last between one to three years. The process of applying the tattoo lasts under an hour and costs approximately $1,000, as of 2015.
Semi-permanent tattoos are vastly different from traditional cosmetic tattoos. Semi-permanent makeup is less invasive, does not become discolored and fades with each skin exfoliation. There is no way to predict exactly how long makeup tattoos last. Factors such as the environment, metabolism and skin type all affect the duration of the tattoos. In order to prolong the life of the tattoo, avoid heavy workouts and excessive exposure to the sun until the area fully heals.
