Did Tammy Faye really have her eyes tattooed?

Salon.com ran a story Wednesday in which Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato say Tammy Faye Bakker Messner had her eye makeup "tattooed" onto her face. Ordinarily, I would have dismissed this as journalistic metaphor. But the authors use the word "tattooed" twice, and in the second instance toss it off as if it were fact. If it isn't fact, then it's sloppy over-use of a metaphor.

I've searched all over the internet and can't find any reference to the woman having her makeup tattoed to her face. Is this true or just lazy writing?
