Eyebrow tattoos, or microblading, are certainly rising pretty quickly in priority at the moment, but there are a few things that are important to know before you book your appointment. Eyebrow tattoos are semi-permanent that creates the effect of fuller eyebrows, which are good for people who have thinning eyebrows or just don’t have a lot of hair there.
If you choose to get eyebrow tattoos you won’t need to use gels or other eyebrow pencils, and for anyone who has to do this everyday, you will know how annoying it can be. However, getting an eyebrow tattoo in Sydney can be a big investment, so before you book your appointment, make sure you do some proper research.
Have a read on below at some of the things to know before getting your eyebrows tattooed:
While it does depend on your individual situation, it is more than likely that you will need more than one session. On your first session your beautician will determine whether or not you will require multiple sessions and let you know what the process is moving forward.
Most of the time you will have the initial eyebrow tattoo session and then you’ll have to head on back in a couple of weeks later for a touch up. This could be due to the type of your skin, the “hair” stroke saturation, or other similar things.
It is Painful
If you have ever got a tattoo before, then you know the kind of pain you are in for. You will have to think about your pain tolerance as you obviously cannot move or flinch when you are getting the eyebrow tattoo.
The good news that a lot of beauticians do have a numbing cream that will make the experience a little bit more enjoyable for you. The face is one of the most sensitive places on your body, so if you can’t handle getting a tattoo or your eyebrows waxed, then eyebrow tattoos may not be the best option for you.
It is Not Permanent
You see the word “tattoo” and your mind jumps to permanent, but in fact, eyebrow tattoos are not actually permanent. As was touched on in the introductions, eyebrow tattoos are semi-permanent. This means you will have to keep coming back to the beautician every now and again if you want to maintain the same look.
But the good news is, the eyebrow tattoo should usually last for around 1 to 3 years, depending on your individual situation like your skin and lifestyle, so you don’t have to go back THAT often. Also, if you find you are not a fan of the new eyebrows, they will usually fade out after six months and go back to some sort of normal between that 1 to 3 year period.
It Takes Some Time
If you are looking for a quick get-in, get-out kind of thing, then you are in for a little bit of a shock. Eyebrow tattooing is not a quick process; it actually will take a few hours before it is finished. This is because you need to talk to the beautician and explain what type of eyebrow you are looking for, and then they actually have to draw it.
Also, because this is indeed semi-permanent, it is certainly something that you do not really want to rush. You want the beautician to take their time and get the outcome you were hoping for when you made your appointment. You also can’t forget about the aftercare as well, to make sure there aren’t any issues.
