About 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 as hand-crafted artistry.
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 art of tattooing by hand has been reinvented with SofTap Permanent Cosmetics.
We have modernized this ancient form of permanent ink with our patented, 100% disposable hand tools to give clients the most natural look in permanent cosmetics.
The face is an area unlike any other on the human body. Here we show our emotions, our age, and our beauty. The skin on your face is delicate and active, it is also a very sensitive place. When someone touches your face, there is a connection, a trust that needs to be present. Certain social barriers between people need to be overcome before you let someone invade that space, which is one of the reasons why we believe that permanent makeup should be applied with the hand method.
SofTap is unique from any other pmu company - including other hand method companies - for our carefully crafted products that were created to provide the maximum amount of comfort to the client, the most even implantation of pigment, a high level of safety and security, a relaxing, low-stress pmu experience, and gorgeous, natural, long-lasting results.
The possibilities are endless with the power of SofTap.
How Does it Work?
Pre-sterilized needles are dipped into pigment and then gently touched to the surface of the skin. Once placed, a light amount of pressure is applied, the tool is pushed forward, and then lifted, to abrade the skin’s surface and begin to deposit pigment. That is a single tap!
The number of taps, the amount of pressure, and the exact placement of each and every tap can be customized.
Eyebrows are soft and feathery, lips are luscious and natural, and eyeliner is alluringly beautiful.
Healed results are perfect for an everyday, “no-makeup” look.
