Purpose of Eyebrow Tattooing

Eyebrow tattooing is designed to create fuller, more defined brows. It’s a godsend for those with sparse, over-plucked, or naturally thin eyebrows.

The goal is to create a natural look that frames the face and enhances the eyes, without the need for daily brow makeup.

Popularity and Reasons for Choosing Eyebrow Tattoos

Eyebrow tattooing has soared in popularity in recent years. The reasons are manifold. For few it’s about saving time and effort in their daily routine.

For many it’s about achieving a specific brow shape that makeup can’t provide. And for many, it’s about the confidence that comes from knowing your brows are always on point, even when you’ve just woken up or finished a workout.

Types of Eyebrow Tattooing

  1. What it is?
    Microblading is a form of eyebrow makeup that uses a handheld tool with tiny needles to create hair-like strokes of pigment in the skin. The eyebrow artist draws each stroke to mimic natural brow hairs, as a result, you get completely natural-looking eyebrows.
  2. Pros and Cons
    The biggest advantage of microblading is it provides natural results. However, it does require touch-ups every 1 to 2 years as the pigment fades over time. It can also cause redness or swelling immediately after the treatment, but this typically goes away within a couple of hours.

Ombre Brows

  1. What it is?
    Ombre brows (Also called powder brows) involve a cosmetic process that creates a soft, powdered look that subtly fills in your brows. The treatment uses a machine to deposit the pigment, creating a gradient effect with the tails of the brows appearing more filled in than the fronts.
  2. Pros and Cons
    Powder brows offer a more filled-in, makeup look and tend to last longer than microblading. However, they may not look as natural and can take longer to heal.

Henna Brows

  1. What It is?
    Henna brows use natural henna dye to tint temporarily the skin beneath the brow hairs. The process involves applying the henna paste to the brows and letting it sit for around 20 minutes before washing it off.
  2. Pros and Cons
    Henna is a natural and safer option for those with sensitive skin or allergies. It also gives a more filled-in look. However, henna brows are not permanent and typically last up to four weeks.
