Cosmetic Tattooing Microblading FAQ

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a type of cosmetic tattooing. It is a manual method where pigment is inserted into the skin in hair-like strokes so the results are natural looking and beautiful. This technique is not suitable for everyone. A natural look can still be achieve with other techniques though!

Does cosmetic tattooing hurt?

Pain varies per person. A topical anesthetic (numbing gel) is used, but some discomfort should be expected. Most people say it’s not as bad as they though it would be and they expected worse. Some even fall asleep!

How do you choose the color?

Colors are custom blended for each client. Natural brow color and hair color are both taken into consideration. Care is taken to ensure that the color is not too dark or too light.

For lips, colors range from light/natural to bright/vibrant.

How long does cosmetic tattooing last?

This varies per client. There are many factors to consider such as skin type, sun exposure, skin health, etc. Depending on the technique, touch ups are recommended annually for brows and every 3 years for lips. Fading can occur anywhere from 6-36 months. No guarantees can be made.

Why does it cost so much?

Only the highest quality pigments and supplies are used to ensure the best possible result. You are paying for a skilled artist who has invested in their training and supplies to tattoo your face. Please don’t settle for cost over quality.

How do I know which brow technique is right for me?

The technique is recommended by the artist. There are factors that the average person will not know to look for. Factors such as hair density, hair pattern, skin type, activity level, lifestyle, and many more are taken into consideration when recommending the right technique for you.
