Whether they are looking to thicken, darken, or correct asymmetries, more and more women and men worldwide turn to professional tattoo artists and beauticians to tattoo their eyebrows. If you are interested in eyebrow tattooing in Calgary, this article is perfect.
Here is everything you need to know about permanent eyebrow tattooing.
It would be best to keep in mind that not all people are suitable for tattooing their eyebrows. Because it involves making skin wounds, it can cause allergies, irritations, infections, and, in the worst cases, deformities.
If you have very sensitive skin or are prone to allergies, have healing problems, or have significant burns in this area, it is not recommended that you get a tattoo. These are things that your tattoo artist will determine, hence the importance of going with a professional.
Once it is determined that you qualify to undergo the procedure, the tattoo artist will be in charge of designing personalized eyebrows for you that harmonize with your face and adapt to your tastes and needs.
Factors such as your skin type and color, your hair color, the shape of your face, your features, and your expectations will be taken into account.
Not all tattoo studios offer eyebrow tattooing. Technically it is a process belonging to aesthetics and beauty, which is why it is usually carried out by beauticians or tattoo artists specialized in it.
The first thing to do is design eyebrows according to your face and tastes. The tattoo artist or beautyian will determine the shape, thickness, color, and separation between both eyebrows.
It is essential to use only sterilized material and work in a properly ventilated environment that meets hygiene standards. Again, we remind you that the priority is to go with a certified professional.
A cap or mesh will be placed on you to prevent your hair from falling on your face, the area will be cleaned and sterilized very well, removing all makeup and oil from the skin, and the contour of the previously designed eyebrows will be drawn with a special pencil. Then, the hairs outside the drawn outline will be shaved or plucked, an anesthetic ointment or gel will be applied to numb the area, and dark ink will be injected into the dermis with a hollow needle or blade.
The process ends when both eyebrows have been fully tattooed, usually after half an hour. The result gives a coverage effect that simulates having the eyebrows made up, making them look thicker and thicker. It is ideal for those with a few hairs in their eyebrows who want to give the illusion of thickness and apply intense makeup frequently since it does not have a natural finish.
- Your eyebrows will look fuller, better defined, and more symmetrical.
- You will be able to design eyebrows perfectly according to your face, making your features more harmful and highlighting your look.
- It would be best if you did not spend hours in front of the mirror making up your eyebrows or retouching them throughout the day. They will always be pigmented, whether waking up in the morning, sweating it out at the gym, or getting out of the pool.
- Gray hair will go unnoticed, and your eyebrows will maintain their color and shape over the years.
- The result is permanent, so you will not have to constantly go to the beautician to touch up your eyebrows (you can also use a temporary eyebrow pigmentation method).
- For people with alopecia, permanent eyebrow tattooing is the best option.
- It is permanent, which means that you will not be able to change the style of your eyebrow.
- You will not be able to make them thinner, decrease their thickness, or change their shape or color.
- If you are not satisfied with the result or after a while you want to renew the style of your eyebrows; you will have to erase them with a laser, a process that is very painful and expensive. You can lighten them very slowly without undergoing any invasive procedure using special ointments.
- The result is not as natural as in temporary eyebrow pigmentation methods.
- The shades available for eyebrow tattooing are somewhat limited.
- Ink color can vary greatly over time. Sometimes brown eyebrows take on a greenish or purple hue, and black eyebrows look blue.
- At least during the first month after the tattoo, you should have daily care and disinfection routine that can be somewhat tedious. You cannot allow sweat to concentrate in the area, you cannot go to the beach or the pool, you must wash your face several times a day, apply disinfectant ointments, and it is recommended that you do not wear makeup.
- Some people must shave their natural hair to tattoo over the eyebrow. Some lose hair in the area after tattooing it.
- Keep in mind that you risk suffering an infection or allergic reaction, so you must go to a professional and have a dermatologist at your disposal.
Depending on the care it receives and the skill of the tattooist, the tattoo pigment can be kept intact for more than three years. After that time has elapsed, it will clear up little by little, without ever completely disappearing.
In terms of pain, it can be said that it is a moderately painful process. On a scale of 1 to 10, the permanent eyebrow tattoo receives a 4 or 5. It should be noted that this depends on each person’s pain threshold, the tattooist’s methodology and the type of anesthetic ointments applied.
Remember that tattooing the eyebrows involves making wounds in the skin. So it is normal that there is burning and itching, scabs form, there is the possibility of suffering infections, and they must be given specific care. Over time, the pigment will lighten little by little, so some touch-ups will eventually be necessary.
Normally, in the first week, the color looks very high; In a few days, it will go down and look more natural.
On the other hand, if you don’t like how it turned out, talk to the artist: you can usually make touch-ups after a few days, and a little color is lost to finish embellishing the area and make it look the way you wanted.
Taking care of your new eyebrow tattoo is not very different from taking care of any other tattoo. You may be recommended a cream to moisturize the area and speed up healing. In addition, you should protect them during the shower.
