Eyebrow tattoos are all the rage these days. Such tattoos look funky, and they add a distinctive look to your face. Whether you opt for eyebrow microblading, eyebrow embroidery, or ombre brows, here are certain things to keep in mind before going permanent.
1. It Isn’t Permanent
It doesn’t matter what type of permanent eyebrow tattoo you choose because not one of these will last you more than a couple of years. Eyebrow microblading, for example, lasts for a year or two while ombre brows and eyebrow embroidery last a maximum of three years.
If you really want to get a permanent eyebrow tattoo but don’t want to live with it forever (in case you don’t like it), go for it anyway! Within a few years, the tattoo will start to fade away.
2. The Results May Vary
Each person has a different skin type, some of which may retain ink more easily than others. Generally speaking, the oilier your skin, the more difficult it is to sustain a permanent eyebrow tattoo. If your skin is too oily, it may reject the pigment used during the tattooing process.
Furthermore, if you have sensitive skin that is easily scarred, it may be best for you to avoid this procedure altogether.
3. One Session Is Not Enough
On average, most people require about two sessions to get the ideal results. After the first session, your skin might push out some of the ink and the hair-like strokes may not be quite as saturated as you would want them to be. These issues, along with any other imperfections that you identify after the first session, will be dealt with in the follow-up session.
4. Your Eyebrows Will Not Be Identical
Some people enter an eyebrow tattoo salon with unrealistic expectations of how their eyebrows ought to look. Biologically, our eyebrows are always slightly different from each other and this will not change with the eyebrow tattooing process- so be prepared.
5. Your Eyebrows Can Be Fixed
In case the tattoo artist messes up your eyebrows, you can simply wait for a few weeks for the ink to start fading and go back to the tattoo expert for the correctional work. So have patience and stop worrying!
6. It Will Hurt
Regardless of the type of tattoo technique you choose, the process can be a bit painful. Eyebrow microblading is perhaps the most painful of the three processes because it involves incisions being made to the skin.
However, most eyebrow artists will apply numbing cream before starting the process so that you are unlikely to feel too much pain.
7. You Need to Be Prepared
Make sure you do your research in advance so that you can identify which of the three methods (eyebrow microblading, eyebrow embroidery, or ombre brows) is best for you. Visit a tattoo clinic when you are 100% sure that an eyebrow tattoo is what you want and that you are willing to live with the repercussions of that tattoo.
If you do decide to go through with the treatment, make sure you choose an excellent artist who knows exactly what you want.
