There are two methods of eyebrow tattooing. Eyebrow Tattooing with a machine and Microblading.
Microblading is still firmly in the tattooing family, meaning pigment is implanted into the skin, but a precision hand tool is used instead of a machine. The beauty of microblading is that the hair-like strokes you can achieve are so fine that it’s the most hyper-realistic treatment yet, it’s no wonder that it’s often referred to as ‘eyebrow embroidery’.
-Eyebrows done via Microblading look lush and natural. Because each hair is individually created, the technician can achieve a full natural look that is virtually undetectable, even up close.
-If there are no hairs present, not to worry, a skilled technician can create beautiful brows that suit your face shape and mimic that of a natural brow.
-Microblading is semi-permanent. Your eyebrow beauty will last between 6 months-3 years until it subtly fades away. This means you can change your eyebrow shape as brow fashion changes and you are not stuck with a particular look. To prevent pigment wearing off, a retouch of the eyebrows is suggested once a year, to keep the colour looking fresh.
-Microblading is performed with a manual pen, the blades of which are 3 times thinner than those used with a traditional eyebrow tattoo, and the channels created by the microblading technique are closer to the surface than when using a machine. This allows the technician to draw crisp, thin and natural looking hairs.
So now you know the difference between Eyebrow Tattooing with a machine versus the manual method and should be better equipped to pick between one of them.Read More
