Unlike a regular tattoo, microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. Hair like strokes are drawn to mimic natural hairs in your brows. Even though it’s not as deep as the regular tattoo, it’s still a tattoo because pigment is implanted under the skin.
There are several forms of microblading including micro feathering which is microblading with a lighter touch focused on adding just a little to the brows’ existing shape, and ombré or microshading, which mimics the look of brow makeup with a more obviously filled-in look instead of hair-like strokes.
Does it hurt?
Overall it feels like cat scratches. Pain varies from client to client.
How do they tattoo eyeliner?
As for the actual process of applying tattooed eyeliner, we will clean the area with an eye-approved antibacterial and then apply a numbing cream to help reduce discomfort. Then micro-droplets of colored pigments are inserted between your lashes and under the skin with a special machine tool.
*For eyeliner, it is very important for you to ice throughout the first day to prevent the risk of color migration.
