  •  Thirdly, age. The older the woman, the slower the pigmented point lightens.

Correction of powdery technique

Can powdery technique overlap traditional tattoo?

Due to the peculiarities of powdery eyebrow dusting, Unfortunately, it is rarely possible to cover the classic tattoo. Sometimes the masters undertake such work, but no one will guarantee one hundred per cent result. In addition, several adjustments will likely need to make to achieve the desired result. Therefore, in this case, it is easier to remove the tattoo using laser correction and then perform the procedure of powdery eyebrows.

The difficulty of overlapping lies in the depth of the water pigment under the skin. When performing classic tattooing, dyes are injected to a depth of 1.5 mm. The technique of powdery eyebrows assumes here the tint to a depth of 1mm. Therefore, the shade of the pigment introduced when making delicate eyebrows may not be visible. If the stain entered deeper than the comma, then there is a high probability that the colour may eventually acquire an unexpected shade: red, blue and even green. But this is not a fact.
