Microblading is a technique in which a small handheld tool is used to add pigment to the skin with the goal of darkening, thickening, restructuring, or even creating eyebrows.
Microblading differs from standard eyebrow tattooing because each hairstroke is created by hand, which produces a thin, natural looking line that blends in with existing hair. Whereas, eyebrow tattoos done with a machine use a thicker needle often producing thicker, less natural lines that tend to expand over time. It is also nearly pain free!
Microblading is used on eyebrows to attempt to either create, enhance or reshape the appearance of the eyebrows. Microblading deposits pigment into the first layer of the dermis, so it fades more rapidly than traditional tattooing techniques, which allows the client to change or update their look as desired. The pigment lasts from 8 months to 2+ year’s depending on aftercare, upkeep, skin type, personal beauty routine, and whether or not you get touch up procedures.
Microblading is also sometimes called embroidery, feather touch and hair-like strokes.
