Tattooing freckles is becoming a popular trend in the tattoo and cosmetic world. Unlike regular tattoos which are meant to stand out and be very noticeably a “tattoo” cosmetic tattooing uses subtle pigments that look natural, especially when they fade.

While it is a tattoo, these kinds of cosmetic tattoos tend to fade quite quickly, and are often only semi-permanent, and will need touch ups to make it last.Generally speaking these tattoos will last around 2 years before they will need a touch up, or you can let them fade away entirely.

  1. hi there I am interested in getting some freckle tattoos done, I live in creston, bc and will be coming to Calgary on the 28th of this month, September to get my car looked at. I would love to book an appointment with Sydney Dyer if possible around the same time if possible. Please get back to me and let me know if you have any time available.

    thank you


    1. Hello Mila, I don’t actually make any bookings with artists, I just write about them so that people can find artists and designs that they like, hopefully helping them find someone that will work for them. So I would suggest looking up Sydney’s contact information and emailing or calling her directly. Though some artists are booked months in advance, I’m not sure if you’ll get in this close; but it doesn’t hurt to try! Best of luck to you.
