Actually, there are really only 2 methods for applying permanent makeup: (1) the machine method, or (2) the hand method -- also called the manual method or the non-machine method. I like to call it the hand method, because its very name implies the delicate detail achieved with its use.
1. HAND METHOD
Prime Example of the Hand Method:
SofTap ® Permanent Cosmetics
A professional's choice of either the machine or non-machine method is a personal preference. Cheryl prefers the SofTap® hand method because it is sterile, 100% disposable, provides soft and natural-looking permanent makeup and is most comfortable, according to her clients who have experienced both the machine and SofTap® methods.
This is one example of the many
SofTap® Comfort Tool configurations.

With the manual method
there is no electrical machine.
The manual tool consists of a handle and needle assemblies. Color is implanted by using various pointillism, lining, shading or filling techniques.
