Is it a tattoo?
YES! Don't believe anyone who says that its not!
Anytime you put pigment under the skin, no matter the method you use, it's still a tattoo! Microblading, Shading, Embroidery, etc are just different styles of eyebrow tattooing.
How long does it last?
Each person is different, but usually it lasts between 1 to 2 years with a touchup.
Touchups are highly recommened anytime after 8 weeks and before 6 months.
A color refresh session is recommended after 18-24 months after the initial procedure. But this doesn't mean that in 2 years everything will be gone, some parts might retain while other parts might fade completely.
How long does the procedure take?
The initial session takes 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours, and the touchup appointment takes about 1 hour.
Will it hurt?
This depends on the person's pain tolerance. Some clients feel a slight discomfort, while others feel no discomfort at all.
A topical numbing cream is put prior to the procedure and is topped up regularly once the procedure has started to keep the client comfortable.
What will they look like right after?
The brow area might look a bit swollen, red, and sometimes blanched (white). This is all very normal.
They will be considerably darker for the first week before they begin to fade out to a softer color in about 10-14 days.
No adjustments can be made after you have left the studio, the tattoo must be completely healed (8 weeks after initial session) before any work can be added, this is to avoid scar formation.
Some clients find the brows to be very dark during the days following the first session, this is all part of the healing process. The final results will be different from when you first leave the studio.
I want a specific style/shape? Can I draw my own eyebrows then you just tattoo over that shape?
Everyone has different ideas on the "perfect" brow shape for them. I tend to do more classic or timeless brows (not too thin, not to thick, with a soft arch, etc.). I don't do a lot of "trendy" brows (instagram brows, korean brows, black eyebrows, etc.) because that's not my cup of tea.
I personally view what I do as an art and I make brows that I feel like flatter your face, follows your natural hair, ages well, and stands the test of time.
Go through my instagram photos and see what kind of brows I do, if you don't see the shape/style you want send us a photo of how you want yours done and I'll see if I can do it.
At the end of the day I will only do brows shapes that look natural and suite your facial features.
