Tattooing eyebrows is not considered to be a good idea as it can cause damage as it uses a tattoo gun that is not only painful, but causes permanent damage and scarring to your brows.

Microblading is much better though.

Microblading is sometimes better than tattoo although tattoo of the eyebrows is permanent while microblading is not.

Microblading creates a more natural end result compared to eyebrow tattooing, which results in brows that appear “drawn on” and flat.

This is because the microblading technique creates individual hair-like strokes that are identical to hair growth pattern of the surrounding eyebrow hair.

There is a difference between Microblading and Tattoo of the eyebrows.

The difference between Microblading and tattoos is that eyebrow tattooing is a permanent procedure, microblading is not.

Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure that can last anywhere between one to three years.

Unlike tattooing, microblading allows you to change the shape and style of your brows as often as you like.

To get Microblading done you have to be at least 18 years of age or older.

Microblading cannot be done on people under 18 years of age or on minors.

People with very oily skin are ineligible for microblading.

Powder brows are recommended for this skin type.

Those with less oily or combination skin, may consider a combination of microblading and powder effect, known as combo brows.

How does microblading look after 5 years?

Your brow shape is fine and pigments didn't migrate out of the initial outline, but the color of microblading after 5 years has turned either reddish/orangey or gray/bluish.

If your brows are not too saturated, this can be fixed with a microblading color correction.

Microblading can last anywhere from 18 to 30 months. In general, it requires touch-ups once or twice a year.

Once pigment from the procedure begins to noticeably fade, you'll need to go back to your practitioner for a touch-up application.

If you are happy with your microblading results, then you'll probably want to make sure your brows look as full as possible for as long as possible.

Microblading is expensive: most sessions cost between $400.00 to $1,400.00, depending on whether it's your first application or a touch-up.

Microblading is a cosmetic procedure that inserts pigment under your skin using a needle to give you well-defined, natural looking eyebrows.

Generally, results can last from 18 to 30 months depending on your skin type, lifestyle, and how often you get touch-ups.

Although the procedure can take upward of 2 hours, most people report only feeling minor pressure or discomfort and less pain than a typical tattoo due to the use of a numbing cream.

Of course, this will depend on your own personal tolerance to pain.

Some level of pain or discomfort should be expected.

The CONS of Microblading

Apart from being an expensive method, makeup removal is quite painful and can lead to scarification.

Also, in many cases, allergic skin reactions are a possibility; it is the microblading side effects.

The numbing cream and the ink used might not be favorable to all skin types.

The face is an area of the body, so tattoos on the face lighten faster. That is, you'll have to update your eyebrow tattoo more often to make them look good. By the way, you should know in advance that you shouldn't just do painted eyebrows. Instead, find a tattoo artist who will make you a natural tattoo with a hair design. I have a little experience with tattooing. There are only four tattoos on my body. Two of them are under the chest, in the style of Persian Tattoo's. And two more on his hands. But I think eyebrow tattooing is a bad idea.
