Yes. The freckle tattoo trend is ACTUALLY happening. And we LOVE it. – Model Standards

With the recent demand for Semi Permanent Makeup, we can’t say that we’re surprised that we’re actually posting this about the freckle tattoo.

There is a craze just emerging – and we love it.

Girls across the globe are investing in Semi Permanent Freckle Tattoos – which, quite simply, give you a nice freckly face for 12-24 months.

That’s right, freckle lovers. You can now get a treatment, which is commonly known as ‘Freckling’ where you will be able to fall asleep & wake up every day with the freckles that you know and love.

In a very similar way to eyebrow tattooing treatments, freckles are tattoo’d on to the face of the client with pigment – which sits under the skin for 12-24 months. When done correctly, by a professional (we strongly advise you not to try to tattoo freckles on your own face), you will leave the clinic with tiny specks all over your face.


We’re not exactly sure what has triggered the trend…

…but we’re not complaining. Girls all over the world are beginning to love something which have been considered a ‘flaw’ for years & years.

As you can see in the image below, the area around the tattooed freckle can appear red & slightly swollen immediately after the treatment. However, as you can see on the ‘after’ image, the colour fades, the sharpness of the tattoo reduces – and the client is left with a softer, natural set of freckles.

Wondering whether this treatment is right for you? Make sure you consider these factors:

1. Long term picture.

These freckle tattoos will usually last for 12-24 months, but there may still be small, faded markings in random areas of your face for up to 3 years. This isn’t a problem if you’re planning on keeping the freckles, as you can go back to your technician for a Colour Booster (also known as a Touch-Up), where you will be re-tattooed and the process will begin again. But if you’re planning on ditching the specks, make sure that you understand that some could be there for quite a while.

2. Price. 

Semi Permanent Makeup treatments can vary in price, from around £200 (approx. $250) – to £600 (approx $750). In the three clinics that we saw the ‘Freckling’ treatment being offered, the price was £200 to £300. Make sure you don’t get ripped off.

3. Safety.

As always, safety should be your greatest concern. Do not let anybody do this treatment for you that isn’t a professional Semi Permanent Makeup technician, who has vast experience in SPMU treatments.
