Microblading vs Eyebrow Tattoo
With either option, those who used to apply pencil or powder can now go swimming, hiking, or exercising without the embarrassment of losing their eyebrows!
Microblading vs Eyebrow Tattoo done by Permanent Cosmetics by Shelly
What is is the difference between microblading and eyebrow tattooing?
Both microbladed eyebrows and eyebrow tattooing use the same technique (hair strokes). The only difference is the tool used. Microblading is done with a hand tool and eyebrow tattooing is done with a digital tool/machine.
Will the results be the same?
Results will be similar. Microbladed eyebrows are done with a hand tool with micro-needles resembling a fine blade (microblading), resulting in a crisp, very fine stroke which heals to a more natural feathered eyebrow hairlike stroke.
Eyebrow tattoos are done with a digital machine. Anyone who desires a fuller brow will love this procedure. As the hair strokes heal they tend to soften up and eventually resemble a soft powder filled look over time.
Does microblading and tattooing hair strokes last the same amount of time?
They are quite comparable as far as retention. Most clients require a color boost yearly, others come every 6 months for a color boost (depending on how perfect and precise a client wants their brows to look). Others can go up to 2 years without a color boost. Many variables play into how well a client will retain the ink!
Is the price the same?
The price is very similar for either process initially. Colors boosts are the same and that pricing varies depending on how long you wait between color boosts. See all pricing here.
Do both procedures require a touch up?
Yes. They both require one, sometimes two touch ups to look their best.
