What is microblading?
Microblading is a form of cosmetic tattooing. It uses a thin blade made up of tiny needles to create small, very precise cuts in the skin of your eyebrows. Then pigments are applied to the cuts to mimic the look of individual hairs. The result is very realistic and natural. The look lasts about 2 years with touch-ups.
Why doesn't microblading last as long as other kinds of eyebrow tattoos?
The Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals says microblading doesn't last as long because "a much smaller amount of pigment is inserted (tattooed) into the skin as compared to fully or solidly filled eyebrow tattoos." The skill of the brow artist will also affect how long your eyebrows last. Shallow strokes fade quickly, while deep microblading strokes can turn blurry with a blue tint.
Why do microblading with a tattoo artist?
Because the first thing people see is your face! Don't leave your brows up to someone who isn't an artist. The state of Texas reconizes this by having microblading fall under tattoo licensing (not cosmetology, hair, makeup or any other).
