Let's take a look

Fitzpatrick Skin Type Suitability
A huge factor to keep in mind when choosing the best color for your client is the Fitzpatrick Scale, but don’t worry - we have made this step easy, too!
The Fitzpatrick skin type system, or The Fitzpatrick Scale, is a widely used classification system that is used to describe how different skin types respond to sun exposure. There are six Fitzpatrick skin types, ranging from Fitz 1 (very fair skin that burns easily and never tans) to Fitz 6 (very dark skin that never burns).
On the FADE Color Chart, you’ll see we have model examples for each Fitzpatrick Skin Type, along with a Fitzpatrick Skin Type Suitability Guide to make pigment selection as easy as possible for you. This guide shows you which pigment is suitable for each skin type.
Let’s look at this in more detail!
Light Warm Blonde is suitable for clients in the F1-F2 Fitzpatrick Skin Type range.
Light Neutral Blonde is suitable for clients in the F1-F2 Fitzpatrick Skin Type range.
Medium Warm Auburn is suitable for clients in the F1-F3 Fitzpatrick Skin Type range.
On the color chart, you will find visual examples of clients who are suitable for each individual pigment color, the color name, a description of the color, and our suggested Fitzpatrick range.
You will also see a drawdown of the pigment color, the temperature icon for that color, and a full list of CI codes for each pigment, which are in order of quantity. The first CI code listed is the most dominant color in that pigment, with the last ingredient being the least dominant color.
A physical FADE Eyebrow Pigment Color Chart is included with every purchase of the FADE Eyebrow Pigment Collection, while a digital version is available with every purchase of FADE Singles.
Pro Tips using Fade Pigments by Tina Davies
Here are a few technical tips to help you achieve your best results with FADE.
Place your finger on the nozzle opening and shake the bottle well before each use, so that the pigments are well mixed by the internal mixing bead. Hold the pigment spout downward, so that the nozzle is facing into your pigment cup, and pump a few times until you achieve your desired amount.
For faster deposit when performing machine shading, consider using needle configurations such as 3, 5, or 7.
Once healed, expect the color to fade out noticeably from the 'immediately after' results. This is different from what you may be used to with organic-based pigments which tend to retain much of their saturation when healed.
FADE may seem a bit thicker in consistency than I ❤️ INK, but it remains an ideal consistency for both manual and machine methods.
For most techniques, hold your needle upright between 60-90 degrees to the skin in order for the needle to enter directly into the upper dermis.
Choose a colour that provides the right amount of contrast against your client's skin tone by referring to our Fitzpatrick Skin Type Suitability guide.
Maintain a firm 3-point stretch while tattooing in order for the pigment to penetrate the skin effectively.
Focus on consistent tattooing movements to ensure a smooth and even pigment deposit into the skin.
Due to the pigment composition, you may need to apply several layers to build up the desired color.
Previous PMU in the skin will impact the healed results.
For optimal results, refresh your client’s brows with a touch-up once they have faded by at least 50%.
