Microblading vs. Machine brows…types of eyebrow tattoos.

I am now offering different types of eyebrow permanent makeup, microblading, digital/machine feather stroke brows & ombre/powder brows/

Microblading  $450

During a Microblading treatment hairstrokes are meticulously hand “drawn” into the epidermal layer of the skin using a hand tool and pigment. The hand tool is dipped into pigment and then delicately grazed into the skin. The treatment is still considered a tattoo because the pigment is implanted into the skin but the use of a hand tool and not a machine means that the results are less accurate, giving  realistic hair-like strokes which can mimic the flow of a natural brow.

The results of a Microblading treatment are a very natural “fluffy” look which is great for filling in gaps, extending the brow or creating brows where hair has been lost through over plucking or conditions such as Alopecia.

Every clients skin retains pigment very differently, the healing process affects the longevity of the treatment, I personally feel microblading is more traumatic to the skin and as a result the skin heals and the strokes fade quicker than digital machine techniques. This however works well for someone who may be nervous about having permanent makeup and is unsure as to whether they will like it. If a client is uncertain I would recommend Microblading over digital as it fades quicker.

Microblading also suits very fair skinned, fair haired clients with baby fine hair, who want very natural looking results.

I can however create more dramatic brows and build colour by adding shading with a 19 pin shader handtool.

After the first treatment and 6-8 week perfecting session, I would recommend a color boost appointment at around 10-18 months.

Digital /Machine Hair Stroke Brows$475 ($250 through 9/25)

Digital Hair Stroke Brows are created using a cosmetic tattooing machine with a tiny needle which injects pigment into the skin.  The pigment is implanted much closer to the surface of the skin than in a traditional tattooing, also the pigment used in cosmetic tattooing is totally different to those used in body tattooing.

I find the digital hair stroke technique to be much traumatic to the skin.   it can, and can take longer than Microblading as you have to work very slowly to ensure the pigment is implanted accurately.

I can still create natural hair strokes with digital technique using tiny 1 point needles or Nano needles, but I can also add depth and strength easily

Results can vary from dramatic looks, mimicking the look of makeup or individual hair strokes for a subtler more natural look.

Digital hair stroke brows tend to retain pigment and last longer in the skin than microblading, after the initial treatment and perfecting session I recommend a color boost at around 18-24months.

Ombre/powder brows $475 ($250 through 9/25)

A small tattoo pen is used for Ombre Brow Tattooing to create natural looking brows. The technique is used when the client would prefer a powder filled brow look, similar to applying brow powder makeup.The pigment is lighter at the start of the brow, and gradually gets darker on the tail, which is why the technique is called Ombre Tattooing.
