Which is Better? Microblading or Eyebrow Tattooing
Microblading or eyebrow tattooing? That’s the question we’ll be answering in this blog post! Let’s get started with some background information on both methods.
Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure where an artist places small strokes/dots of pigment under your skin to create hair above your brows. This technique uses a handheld tool that deposits pigment into the epidermis layer of skin using fine needles to mimic natural-looking hairs and curves in a person’s eyebrow shape. Unlike tattooing, its inks are placed in the deeper layers of the skin which does not allow the ink to fade and maintain a natural look.
MICROBLADING EYEBROWS LAST 1 TO 3 YEARS
An eyebrow piercing or tattoo will last a lifetime, but microblading does not put ink as deeply underneath the epidermis. This means that as your skin’s natural cycles occur, the ink sinks to the surface or migrates around beneath the skin to appear lighter over time. The ink will fade considerably than an eyebrow piercing in comparison.
PIGMENTS DON’T TURN COLORS WITH MICROBLADING
Microblading, unlike traditional tattooing, employs a distinct sort of pigment. Permanent makeup doesn’t change color with microblading when applied to the proper skin tones. Even as the color fades, it holds to its original hue as to where tattooing uses Inks that then turn blue or green and sometimes red over the years.
MICROBLADED BROWS ARE HAND-DRAWN; WE DON’T USE STENCILS
This is excellent news! Because it’s hand-drawn, microblading has less of an effect on the skin than machine tattooing. The ink will not fade over time as a result of this. You may rest confident in the knowledge that the tiny lines designed to replicate your natural hair will not bleed out with a skilled microblading artist.
Microblading has many advantages over conventional eyebrow tattooing, but finding a competent Permanent Makeup Artist is crucial. Microblading is an art, just like tattooing, and therefore requires a special technique behind the microblade.
