Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

Microblading is a type of semi-permanent tattoo.  It’s semi-permanent because the pigment is not placed as deeply in the skin as a typical body tattoo. Microblading is administered by creating a series of small strokes in the skin that results in a natural hair-like appearance. Microblading is a 2-part process: The first session is the foundation and the structure of the brows. The second is to perfect the little details after the initial healing process. The second session needs to happen within 6-8 weeks of the 1st session.

 

Microblading is also known as Featherstroke, Eyebrow Embroidery, Hair-stroke Eyebrows, Microstroke Brows, Micropigmentation, 3D-Brows, and probably various other names, but it’s all the same thing. The names vary based on region or how fancy they want to make it sound. True story.

 

CAUTION – not all microbladers are created equal. Some are self-taught, some learned by watching YouTube, some learned online with no practical experience, while others have had extensive and multiple trainings. Not all microbladers are certified and/or licensed. There are a few different methods to microblading – some do NOT numb you, while others DO numb. Just make sure you do your homework before finding the right fit for you. Ask questions and choose wisely!

HOW LONG DOES A MICROBLADED TATTOO LAST?

Because the tattoo is not as deep as a typical body tattoo, a microbladed tattoo will fade over time and last approximately 1-3 years.  The rate at which a tattoo fades depends on multiple factors including a person’s diligence to following the aftercare instructions, the tattoo color applied (lighter colors can fade quicker than darker ones), skin type (oily skin tends to blur and push out pigment faster), hormones, sun exposure and other chemicals used on the face.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WILL MICROBLADING WORK FOR ME?

Good candidates for this procedure are those with hair loss, lack of shape, thin brows caused by the 80’s and 90’s over-plucking craze, chemotherapy or Alopecia, to cover scars, adding more length to short brows, adding fullness to thin brows, correcting asymmetrical brows, active lifestyles, and if you’re just DONE applying makeup every day.

 

This procedure is not recommended for those who are pregnant or nursing, are using any kind of acne medication, have skin disorders or use any type blood thinners (these will cause you to bleed more and to not absorb pigment).

 

 

 

 

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

Microblading is a 2-part process: The 1st session is the foundation and the structure of the brows. The 2nd is to perfect the color, shaper, and details after the initial session has healed.

 

It’s highly recommended for you to come back for the second session so that your brows will look the best they can! If you like your brows after the first session, you will love them after the second session.

 

1st Session – $350

 

2nd Session  – $150 if scheduled within 6-8 weeks after the initial session.

 

All additional Touch ups are $250.

 

We recommend that you come in for a touch up once a year to keep your brows looking their best. If you wait too long, and a full re-do is necessary, it will be at the current full price.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL?

We require a $50 deposit to hold your appointment, and the remaining balance is due at time of service. Deposits are only refundable up to 72 hours before your scheduled appointment. Any changes made after that time will result in the loss of your deposit.

WHAT IF MY EYEBROWS HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY TATTOOED?

Contact us by email or text and let us know when you book your first appointment, so we can evaluate how we can help you.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
  • If you are a heavy smoker, your pigment may fade sooner.
  • The amount of natural hair you have will impact the overall look of your finished brows.  The more hair you have, the more natural the brow will appear.
  • If you have very oily skin, your tattoo may fade faster and may look more blurred or fuzzy and less like natural hair than you’d expect.

 

Important: Please let us know when you book your appointment if you have previously pigmented or tattooed brows to see how we can help you.  We cannot guarantee the results of re-working a previous tattoo but will do our best to determine what can be done.  In some cases, re-work or color corrections will require additional sessions and will be charged accordingly.
