Tattoo eyebrows are exactly what you need if your natural ones are thin, sparse or they just won’t grow back. They are a great fit for those of you who over-plucked them when you were younger or just lost them due to lack of vitamins, chemotherapy, burns and so on. You’re looking at a 10 minutes procedure that will fade away in approximately one year. There aren’t any permanent tattoo eyebrows. If someone ever tells you that they will do a permanent tattoo on your face in the shape of eyebrows, run! That is not cosmetic tattooing, so it will look fake.
The actual technique for getting your eyebrows tattooed is called microblading, feathering, embroidering or etching. It consists in carefully drawing hairs that are missing with a tattooing machine that looks like a pen. If you are already tattooed, don’t expect to see any of the equipment you are used to. In addition, you will be pampered with numbing cream, which is relatively new to this domain and which includes lidocaine, that god-sent spray that calmed down your pain before the tattoo artist added details in white. Speaking of colors, the cosmetician will study your skin type and skin tone and pick the best match.
Tattoo eyebrows aren’t cheap, but if you find a makeup artist who knows what he or she is doing, then you will get what you pay for. A professional cosmetician will try to find the best eyebrows shape for your face and define them before actually starting the tattooing process. The color of your eyebrows will be darker for up to 3 days, but then it will look as natural as your real hair. As said before, this procedure is only semi-permanent, so it will require annually touch-ups unless you want them to fade away.
