So People Are Actually Tattooing Freckles On Their Face Now.
"I think cosmetic tattooing or permanent makeup is really on the rise, and obviously with any trend, you will have people who will want to take advantage of that," she says.
"Because this is your face, it's important that you do your research and find artists who aren't afraid to show their portfolio and healed work. Even if this is 'semipermanent,' there are risks, such as technicians who will go too deep or not use the proper inks," Rainbow explains.

Mo Southern, a tattoo artist from California keeps getting requests from clients wanting this look.
She says women want the fresh-faced, cute, and innocent look. Plus it's the same idea of women with straight hair wanting curly hair and vice versa.
Still, it's not just about applying ink on the face says Southern.
"You have to match the right shade of freckle to the skin," she told the Today show. "Every single person needs a different shade and tone to make it look natural."
She also explains that there is an art about applying the freckles on the face.
"They have to be a wide array of shapes, sizes, and darkness," Southern says.
A "freckled" session is about an hour long and the freckles will last about three years.
Rainbow who is credited with starting this trend says this is perfect for women who "get some in the summertime with sun exposure, but want them yearlong."
