Our Pick Of The Best Cosmetic Tattoo Artists In Brisbane

Wake up feeling flawless!

By Gracie Clough & Melissa Myrteza | 11th December 2019

If you are looking for a way to feel polished and ready to take on the day from the moment you wake up, cosmetic tattooing might be up your alley. Thanks to amazing beauty advancements, long gone are the days of harsh, block-looking cosmetic tattoos. Instead, the new techniques, performed in a painless way, will leave you with naturally enhanced features! From eyebrows, eyeliner and lips to scar concealment, there’s now a variety of different cosmetic tattooing options available.

Unlike traditional tattoos that use ink, cosmetic tattoos use a pigment. This means that while your results can last up to several years, they will softly fade over time – so at your touch-up appointments, you can play up with different shapes, colours and styles as beauty trends evolve.

Ready to simplify your beauty routine and increase your confidence sans makeup? When it comes to having cosmetic tattooing performed, it’s vital to enlist the help of highly trained professionals. So, to help you narrow down the search, we’ve scouted Brisbane’s qualified and talented cosmetic tattooists that we personally trust. Thank us later!


This beauty studio is owning the cosmetic tattooing industry one bespoke brow at a time. Located in Brisbane’s leafy Western suburb of Fig Tree Pocket, Bespoke Brows is your go-to vegan-friendly brow specialist. Dedicated owner and artist Jem is boss of semi-permanent feather touch eyebrows, powder and ombré brows, as well as combination brows for the best of both worlds. Jem’s accreditations from nationally and internationally renowned academies are testimony to her skill in the microblading technique, and her talent at creating the most natural-looking powder and ombré brows has put them in high demand! Jem uses the Golden Ratio for each client’s brow design to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing result that is perfectly proportioned for them. Did we mention she’s also a master of henna brows? Her popular Signature Henna Brow Sculpt is the perfect introduction to a cosmetic eyebrow tattoo. Book your next appointment at Bespoke Brows for that little extra semi-permanent touch!

Is it time to arch up and join the brow game (semi) permanently? Then, no doubt you’ve heard of Simply Laser. As experts in their field, Leona and the Brisbane City team will intricately create a bespoke brow shape to suit your natural features. Leona has trained all over the world, winning awards for her mircoblading technique as well as testing global pigments to find the absolute best quality.  Their most common tattoo procedure is microblading, a much more natural take on the bold-brow. Considered a ‘paramedical tattoo’, the treatment involves pushing semi-permanent pigment into the skin, which can last up to 2 years. Taking no longer than two hours, it’s a great solution to take back some time in your morning routine and achieve a natural aesthetic from the moment you wake up. To ensure the colour of the brow lasts, a singular touch-up is recommended within four weeks of the procedure. To create your bespoke brows, consult the Simply Laser team on Edward Street.
