First, we need to explain what tattooing your eyebrows means, in case you did not know already: a procedure performed by tattooing the skin with medical cosmetic pigments that are introduced with a special device in the upper layers of the skin, where they remain for a period of time. The time varies depending on several factors like skin type, skin color, how much you expose yourself to the sun, the color you choose for tattooing eyebrows, etc. Depending on these factors, the tattoo may last up to 3-5 years.
Eyebrow tattooing is recommended if there are areas where your hair doesn’t grow if your eyebrows are too rare or too short, if you have unevenly shaped eyebrows, if you lost your eyebrows due to an accident or if you simply want to save time and look well all day.
For tattooing eyebrows there are used two procedures:
Eyebrow tattoo hair by hair – this procedure provides a natural and clean eyebrows aspect, it’s a more subtle procedure. Hairs are not plucked or totally shaved, instead, you get a pigmentation that mimics the hair presence, then a lighter base will be applied, as shade over the entire brow. This technique fills in the eyebrow gaps.
Eyebrow tattoo in full lineament (full) – this procedure involves tattooing eyebrows without imitating the hairspring, resulting a thick eyebrow aspect.
You can choose any of these two times pf procedures but you should ask an esthetician before making a final decision.
Which are the benefits of this procedure?
Some semi-permanent tattooed eyebrows give the hair a chance to “rest” for 3-5 years; they have a chance to repair themselves. The new eyebrows lineament will guide you to keep the shape, turning them into a real “model”. After tattooing your eyebrows, all you need to do is just pluck what is around the tattoo.
What does eyebrow repigmentation tattoo mean?
