Permanent Makeup: Hoi An Now Travel Guide to Money Saving

Permanent makeup or cosmetic tattooing, is a fast-growing part of the health and beauty industry.


If you have faint eyebrows, no eyebrows, or partial eyebrows, a cosmetic tattoo can help. A lip tattoo can reduce “lipstick bleed,” and give definition to the lip line. With a colored lip tattoo, lip scars disappear, plus you can kiss lipstick good-bye. After an eyeliner tattoo, you can put away your eye pencils for several years.


All the clinics below do eyebrow (including feathering), lip and eyeliner tattoos.  All (apart from the Saigon Clinic in Ho Chi Minh City) have been tried by Hoi An staff or expats.  The feedback that includes the level of expertise and hygiene has been excellent.

Permanent makeup, Sai Gon Clinic, Hoi An Now


Getting eyebrow tattoos seems to be the rage among some expats in Hoi An. Five expats I know have recently had their brows done; all are happy not only with the tattoo artistry but with the care, skill and cleanliness involved.   There are several salons around town where you can get such work done.  However, we are listing the ones that have been personally recommended by Hoi An expats.

Eyebrow Tattoos

The Magic Spa in Hoi An rivals spas around the world for ambiance, service and cleanliness.  Their personalized service, expertise and artistry ensured that from the moment I entered I was relaxed and confident with their procedures. 


My eyebrows were meticulously drawn on with eyebrow pencil; this taking as long as the tattooing – and so important to ensure the end result is what you are expecting. It also gives the opportunity to see what the end result will look like before tattooing commences. – Judy park, Hoi An local

Permanent Eyeliner

The permanent eyeliner was also completed (at The Magic Spa) in a professional manner, taking account of my expectations.  If you are interested in permanent makeup, The Magic Spa is definitely worth checking out. – Judy Park, Hoi An local

I was really happy with my eyeliner tattoo at Mai Mai Dep.  It took a couple of days to calm down but after that it was just as I wanted.  If you had this done in Australia it would cost four times the price  – Lucy, Hoi An Now staff member
