Not Your Grandmother’s Tattoo

September 2 2017

Mention tattoos to a crowd of people, and the first things that will appear in the imaginary speech bubbles over their heads are roses and anchors with “Mom” or a woman’s name on an engraved banner. But microblading will soon change that. It’s the word making the rounds of beauty articles at something approaching lightning speed, and this is your cheat sheet for this great addition to eyebrow maintenance.

While microblading is technically a form of tattooing, it bears only passing resemblance to traditional tattoo techniques. True, microblading does place pigment beneath the surface layer of your skin but that’s pretty much where the similarity ends. Rather than penetrating deep beneath many of your skin’s layers as with a traditional tattoo, microblading deposits pigment much closer to the surface. This means that the process is actually just a semi-permanent one – you can expect the results to fade completely within one to three years.

The results of a pro microblading service are virtually indistinguishable from natural eyebrows. The lines are uber fine lines that flawlessly mimic natural eyebrow hairs. This is great news for anyone who has overdone it with tweezing and endless shaping, or whose genes didn’t bless them with perfectly arched brows. Plus, microblading will give you back that time you’ve been spending drawing in hairs by hand every. single. day.

Your appointment may be scheduled for an hour or more, but the actual microblading process will probably take only a fraction of that. The rest will be spent taking measurements and drawing in outlines as well as engaging in an ongoing conversation with you about exactly how you want your new eyebrows to look. Your technician will also give you great after care advice to make the most of your service.
