Tattooing the wet line...yes or no?

October 8, 2016

 

 

A common question by permanent makeup professionals is if they should tattoo the "wetline" and how to do it successfully. Ophthalmologists say "NO!" Others say proceed with caution.  Here's why: Professionals should appreciate the function of the Meibomian glands along the "wetline", mucosal surface of the inner eyelid.  The Meibomian glands secrete an oily film that coats the tear film to keep the eye moist.  Overworking this area can result in scarring and damage to the Meibomian gland orifices (openings) and result in chronic dry eye. [Thanks to centerforsight.com and wikipedia for valuable illustrations and helpful information.]

 

The meibomian glands (or tarsal glands) are a special kind of sebaceous gland at the rim of the eyelids inside the tarsal plate, responsible for the supply of meibum, an oily substance that prevents evaporation of the eye's tear film.
