Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery or micro-stroking, is a form of natural-looking, semi-permanent tattoo artistry that is perfect for reconstructing, defining, extending, or filling-in over plucked or sparse eyebrows. A trained technician uses a handheld microblading tool to implant semi-permanent micropigments under the skin. Using the tool, the technician will draw individual, hair-like strokes in the brow region to mimic the look of natural brow hairs. The microblading technique allows the technician to control the shape, color, and density of the completed brows.
How does microblading differ from permanent makeup (aka cosmetic tattooing)?
Microblading is a form of permanent makeup since pigment is implanted under the dermis (the inner layer of the skin). However, the pigment used in microblading is not implanted as deep as for a regular tattoo or cosmetic tattoo. Furthermore, the needles used in microblading are finer in diameter than traditional cosmetic tattoo needles
