If you guys grew up in the 90s or maybe 80s in an Asian family, you probably grew up with parents, aunties, and uncles that have their eyebrows tattooed.
We have all seen those brows that are like blueish-green. It just does not look natural, and it looks like you literally just took a sharpie to draw your brows.
Microblading is kind of like the updated version of that. Microblading is basically getting your eyebrows tattooed but in a different way.
When you get a tattoo, it’s done with a tattoo gun and it’s almost impossible to be able to do nice feathery strokes that actually look like eyebrow hair. Tattooing does not look as natural because you can’t do those soft feathery strokes.
In addition, a tattoo goes deep into your skin versus Microblading; it’s only on the surface of your skin. It is semi-permanent and only lasts about one to two years versus if you got your eyebrows tattooed it would last anywhere between eight to ten years or maybe forever.

Caution before you go for Microblading
- If you have oily skin, more likely, you will lose colour easily. After a few months, you’re more likely to get a blurry appearance instead of sharp strokes. Because the oil in your skin is just blurring the lines. It will not only fade really fast but also it’s a waste of money. With oily skin in six months, you’ll probably start having patchiness.
- If you’re Anemic, meaning low on blood and low iron levels. Check with your professional first what type of ink they are using. Because after the Microblading healing process ironed base ink may turn into an ashy blue on your skin.
- Micro-blading is semi-permanent and you will need to visit your Artist every three years. Regular Microblading eyebrows healing process on the skin may damage it in the long run.
- Microblading fades in patches, which means after a year you will again have to refill patches with makeup.
