Is Microblading a Tattoo?
Is Microblading Permanent?
YES! Microblading is a tattoo, and tattoos, by their nature and definition are permanent. Some practitioners advertise microblading as a "semi-permanent" procedure, and while this procedure tends to change and fade over time, that does not make it semi-permanent. All tattoos fade with sun exposure, and the eyebrows, being in a position where sun exposure is a daily occurrence will endure some fading with time. There isn't a reliable or steadfast rule to gauge if / when / or how the procedure will fade or change over time, but a general guideline is that people who receive microblading should expect to need a touch up every 12-24 months.
