The modern sphere of beauty is the continually changing “rules” of makeup stylistics. Bright and lush lips are gradually disappearing into oblivion – nowadays, eyebrow cosmetic tattoo has become very popular. A thin and barely noticeable thread of fine hairs has long lost its relevance, giving way to beautiful and thick eyebrows – natural and with a natural shade. Unfortunately, not all women can boast of such parameters given by nature.
Most of the fair sex spend much time and effort to find the desired shape and colour. That is why the eyebrow cosmetic tattoo procedure can consider real salvation for them, allowing them to get a high-quality result in a relatively short period.
My clients claim that before visiting my office:
They think about this procedure’s overall possible consequences for a very long time and carefully, focusing their attention on all the pros and cons:
Woman listening to the recommendations of their girlfriends, which have already undergone the tattooing procedure.
Search reviews on the Internet about the masters of Melbourne.
And this is quite natural – after all, the updated eyebrows on the face will last for about two years, and if there are any errors, it will be very problematic to eliminate them. At the same time, well-done makeup is an opportunity to forget about daily tinting for a long time, as well as excellent financial saving. In conclusion, the purpose is to tell in detail all the pros and cons of this procedure.
However, everyone can finally decide for themselves its necessity.
Eyebrow cosmetic tattoo techniques
First of all, my clients must understand what this procedure is. Permanent makeup, in this case, is the introduction of a natural-based colouring pigment into the upper layer of the dermis using a special apparatus. Among the wide variety of tattooing types, it would be worth highlighting microblading and powdery eyebrows and a mixed technique, which involves combining the above methods. We will tell you about each of them separately.
This technique involves drawing individual hairs using a maniple. Simultaneously, small incisions made on the skin through which the dye injected. As a result, we get the illusion of natural hair growth.
This direction involves performing in two techniques: European and Eastern. The first differs by “drawing” in one order, while all the hairs are the same—the Eastern method distinguished by a chaotic pattern that repeats the natural way of eyebrows.
If we talk about the positive features of this method, then Microblading should highlight the following aspects:
Lack of painful sensations;
A high-quality result that allows you to disguise many flaws – the wrong configuration of the eyebrow, gaps in the hair growth zone, asymmetry, and much more;
The ability to get the desired shape of the eyebrows;
However, certain disadvantages of microblading should also be mentioned, for example:
the need to search for an experienced artisе – the work of non-professionals is fraught with scars, floating pigment and colour migration;
the inability to make a tattoo on oily skin – in this case, the hairs will blur, and the eyebrow will be deformed;
a small number of good artist can perform their work with high quality – many can promise, but very few can do well.
This method is very popular with my clients, distinguished by its technique of execution and excellent results. The introduction of the colouring matter, in this case, is carried out by the shading method. The pigment looks soft. The drawing has no sharp transitions and borders. Externally, the effect of eyebrows drawn in with a pencil or shadows created.
The main “pluses” of technology
a stunning affect – the eyebrows look so natural that at first glance, it can be quite challenging to understand that they are coloured;
the procedure itself characterized by painlessness and little trauma;
an excellent opportunity to mask eyebrow blemishes, poor-quality previous makeup, small scars;
perfect for any style;
admissibility for the procedure on any skin type.
The main “cons.”
correction required after a month after the first tattoo;
this procedure classified as expensive.
Since this method includes both previous ones, it also differs in its inherent disadvantages and advantages. Speaking of the positive aspects, we should highlight the opportunity to get, as a result, voluminous and rich in colour, beautiful eyebrows that look very natural. Regarding the negative, it can easily avoid if you trust a professional.
When is an eyebrow tattoo necessary?
General recommendations regarding the need for the procedure are as follows:
a manifestation of allergic reactions concerning decorative cosmetics;
the absence of hairs in the segment of the eyebrows – complete or partial;
poor eyesight, which does not allow you to correctly and accurately do daily makeup;
the need to adjust the eyebrows, saturate them with colour, etc.
if you cannot create original makeup;
desire to save finances and have a lot of free time;
always to look beautiful and in any life situation.
Five factors that speak in favour of tattooing eyebrows
So why is this procedure essential for most of my clients? I offer you a kind of rating of the main reasons.
1. It’s always beautiful.
Probably, you are always worried before going to the bathhouse, sauna, swimming pool, and a trip to the sea seems like a disaster for you? After all, after taking any water procedure, your eyebrows immediately “float”, lose their colour and saturation. But this only happens if you use ordinary cosmetics – and you probably carry them with you in a cosmetic bag or purse, to “make a face” in any convenient situation. With the help of tattooing, you will instantly get rid of such problems, and your eyebrows will always look perfect. After it, the only procedure you need is regularly plucking the hairs that appear outside the drawn border. It does not take much time – no more than 5 minutes and usually held every two weeks.
2. No allergies.
Whatever the manufacturers of decorative cosmetics say, chemical components still included in most drugs’ composition. Therefore, the appearance of an allergic reaction to mascara or other means is quite common. After undergoing permanent eyebrow makeup, you guaranteed to get rid of rashes, redness and flaking on the skin. You will no longer use decorative cosmetics, and your appearance will always be flawless.
3. You will have a lot of time.
Have you ever calculated how many minutes it takes you to dye your eyebrows? In this case, we are talking about giving them the perfect shape – with the right symmetry and colour that suits your image. As practice shows, this takes at least 20 minutes a day. Such “calculations” are especially relevant in the morning – when you are late for work or before important meetings. Haste can lead to a poor-quality result. As a result, your mood irrevocably deteriorates, and the whole day or a severe meeting may go in the wrong direction.
There is only one, the only correct solution in such situations – to make an eyebrow tattoo. After that, you can sleep longer in the morning or devote more free time to your family.
4. Financial benefit.
And now it’s time to make calculations on the cost of cosmetics. At first, glance, buying a pencil is not that expensive financially. But at the same time, one should not forget about the additional purchase of brushes, sponges, gel eyeliner, shadows, unique makeup removers, which should be updated at least once every six months. As a result, a reasonably large amount comes out, which can save if you make eyebrow tattooing. In Odessa, this service costs 1000 – 5000 UAH. – if you turn to real professionals. But the same effect of ideal eyebrows will last for two years, and you do not need to buy decorative cosmetics and other accompanying means.
5. You are perfection itself
By agreeing to the procedure, you choose for yourself the shape of the eyebrows currently considered the most fashionable. After the tattoo period has expired, you can change the configuration, thereby confirming your title of the most stylish and charming woman.
Six negative factors that prevent eyebrow tattooing
However, one should not think that this procedure is available to everyone. It also has certain drawbacks that it would be dishonest not to mention to my clients.
1. Dishonest non-professionals.
Nowadays, many salons, beauty studios and individual masters offer this type of cosmetic service. Unfortunately, not all of them are right specialists, and most do not have special diplomas and certificates that give them the right to work in this direction. A real master should have a lot of experience, know all the techniques correctly and navigate the nuances of colour. Therefore, when deciding to make eyebrows, pay attention to the reviews in forums and social networks, take an interest in photographs of already done works, and carefully weigh your particular case’s pros and cons. Permanent makeup artist – Olha Pokatilova, who operates in Melbourne, has the necessary level of experience and can provide this service at the highest level.
2. Poor quality of pigments.
It so happens that the colour obtained as a result of tattooing changes its shade after a while, and the eyebrows can turn red, grey or red. In this case, the reason is the pigment of unsatisfactory quality – this is the choice due to the cheapness that novice artist often makes, who are not yet ready to invest severe funds in their activities. Besides, a little experience of the master is another good reason for changing the eyebrows’ colour. Moreover, the less experience the stylist has, the worse the result of the tattoo will be.
3. Desire to change appearance immediately.
The central aspect that must take into account is those eyebrows made for at least 1.5 years, and during this time, it will be impossible to change their colour and shape. Therefore, to not revise later or not decide to remove the tattoo, you still need to think carefully in advance of all possible consequences.
4. The presence of contraindications.
Each of the permanent makeup techniques involves the drug’s intradermal injection, resulting in damage to the dermis. In this regard, it should say about some contraindications, fraught with dire consequences:
diabetes mellitus with insulin dependence;
if there is insufficient blood coagulation;
acquired immunodeficiency syndrome;
inflammation in the body, accompanied by ARVI and fever;
diseases from the section of psychiatry.
Also, eyebrow tattooing not recommended for expectant mothers and women who are breastfeeding. You will find all the detailed information on this in my blog. To completely protect yourself in terms of health, before visiting a beautician, it is advisable to consult in advance with the attending physician and the tattoo artist.
5. The likelihood of infection.
If you decide to contact a beginner or a non-specialist, you run the risk of getting a skin infection. Most often, negative consequences arise due to the reusable use of consumables, which provide for single use. Also, the risk of disease increases due to work without gloves, with non-sterile instruments. Therefore, think carefully about whether it is worth visiting a master who few have heard of and who does not have a portfolio of his work and reviews from clients.
6. Restrictions on the image.
The wrong colour can visually age the face. Besides, for a couple of years, you will not be able to change the hair colour if you wish since this procedure entails a change in the eyebrows’ tone to achieve a harmony of the image.
Scheme of the procedure
Eyebrow tattooing is performed approximately according to the same scheme, while the choice of method does not play any role. The essence of the process is as follows:
1. Consulting – the master conducts a meeting with the client, shows the portfolio, tells everything about the procedure, answers the questions of interest.
2. Model development – in the makeup segment, the master draws future eyebrows’ configuration using a special pencil, adjusting the size and colour. The customer assesses all this, and if there is a need for any corrections, everything immediately finalized.
3. Anesthesia – the master conducts the first anesthesia by injecting unique gel-based lidocaine around the treated area.
4. The beginning of the tattoo – the master, opens the package with a disposable needle, fixes it in the machine and starts working;
5. Repeated anesthesia – performed to relieve the client of painful sensations completely.
6. Final consultation – necessary to explain in detail to the client about eyebrow care principles. The foreman can designate a day for correction if the visitor wants it. He also recommends specialized remedies to promote faster wound healing.
The procedure itself can last in the range of 1.5 – 2.5 hours. Even before the visit of the master, you can independently decide in advance on the technique of execution and the shape of the eyebrows – this will significantly save time. And the specialist will only make his suggestions about the eyebrows’ colour and appearance based on your arrival.
