    Microblading For Perfect Brows!!

    Have you heard of microblading? Maybe "microstroking" "eyebrow embroidery" or "3D / 6D brows"? Microblading is a relatively new cosmetic tattoo procedure sweeping the beauty industry, offering women (and men) a solution to the need for makeup, or non-existent hair growth to have the most realistic brow tattoo possible!! Read on for more information on the technique and some helpful hints for choosing an artist!

    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.

    Is a blade used for the procedure?
