6 reasons why you should never tattoo your eyebrows
By PhiBrows Certified Microblading Artist Amanda White
As a permanent makeup solution, microblading is far better than eyebrow tattoo. The results do not last as long, but microblading results in much less skin damage. Additionally, the microblading pigment does not bleed or spread, which can leave you with brows that are unnatural and ghastly looking.
Here are six reasons why you shouldn’t even consider getting eyebrow tattoo. Microblading is the way to go.
1. Microblading is a delicate, precision proceedure.
Eyebrow tattooing is brute force. It uses a tattoo gun that is not only painful, but causes permanent damage and scarring to your brows. On the other hand, microblading artists draw each eyebrow hair by hand, just below your skin surface. The results are beautiful, lifelike and natural brows.
Because of the delicate lifelike “hairs” produced by microblading, it often takes incredibly close inspection to tell that microbladed eyebrows are not real hairs.
2. Microblading pigment stays put.
Your microbladed wyebrows will fade over time, but the delicate hand-drawn hairlines look so much more natural than tattooed brows. Microblading uses a lot less pigment than traditional tattoo ink. Eyebrow tattooing may last longer than microblading, but your tattooed brows will degrade as the ink spreads over time. This results in a look that is frankly ridiculous.
3. Microblading pigments hold color.
Unlike eyebrow tattoo, eyebrow microblading uses pigment, not ink. The pigment maintains color and doesn’t change as a result of exposure to UV rays. Tattoo ink will turn green or brown or blue over time. The pigment used in microblading will get lighter and fade after about 18 months, but the actual color hue remains unchanged.
4. Microblading doesn’t hurt. Mostly.
The vast majority of microblading clients feel minimal or no pain. I frequently have clients fall asleep during the procedure! First, I apply an anesthetic to the eyebrow area. After a few minutes, the brows are numb. While you should fear the tattoo gun, you don’t need to worry about pain from microblading.
5. Eyebrow microblading is natural looking, eyebrow tattoo is not.
Remember, each hair stroke is painstakingly hand drawn by your microblading artist. Even in a close-up, these individual hair strokes are almost indistinguishable from real eyebrow hair. Eyebrow tattoos look like permanent makeup or eyebrow pencil while microblading looks like real eyebrows.
6. Microblading is artistry.
