What is eyebrow tattooing?

The eyebrow tattoo is a permanent makeup technique that creates a soft-shaded brow pencil look, usually referred to as an Ombré brow or Powder Brow. The brows are shaded to the perfect shape, sparse areas are filled in and a gradient effect is created.

Ombré brows and Powder Brows are the same technique, just with different names. Ombré brows are great for any skin type, even oily skin, and are the go-to choice for anyone who is not a suitable candidate for microblading.

Eyebrow tattoos provide a fuller, more defined and dramatic look and generally last for up to 5 years, although colour boost top-ups are required to maintain them properly.

Frequently asked questions

Eyebrow tattooing is a form of permanent makeup that creates a soft, gradient effect, resembling the look of filled-in eyebrows with makeup powder. Unlike microblading, which uses fine strokes to mimic individual hairs, an eyebrow tattoo usually refers to Ombré Powder Brows which involves shading techniques for a more defined and long-lasting result.

Eyebrow tattoos typically last longer than microblading, ranging from 2 to 5 years, depending on factors such as skin type, lifestyle, and aftercare. Touch-up sessions may be required to maintain the desired shape and colour.

Discomfort levels during the procedure vary from person to person, however most clients report only mild discomfort during the process.

Immediately after the procedure, the eyebrows may appear darker and more intense than expected, but this will fade over the following weeks. Some redness and swelling may occur initially but typically subsides within a few days. Following proper aftercare instructions is essential for optimal healing.

While rare, potential risks include allergic reactions, infections, and scarring. It’s crucial to choose a qualified and experienced technician who follows strict hygiene and safety protocols to minimise these risks.

Eyebrow tattooing is suitable for individuals looking to enhance the appearance of their eyebrows with a soft, defined look. They are particularly beneficial for those with sparse or uneven brows or those looking to save time on daily makeup application. They are also a fallback option for those who are not suitable candidates for microblading.

Ombré Brows are the most widely used term to describe this form of permanent makeup. The purpose of this style is to create a “powdered makeup effect” hence why they are often referred to as Powder Brows. They are just two names for the same eyebrow tattoo procedure.

Researching and selecting a skilled and certified technician experienced in eyebrow tattoos is essential for achieving satisfactory results. Reviewing portfolios, reading client testimonials, and scheduling consultations to discuss expectations and ask questions can help you find the right technician for your needs.

Yes, you can still wear traditional makeup over your new brows if desired. However, keep in mind that the powder brow effect provides a long-lasting base, and you may only need minimal touch-ups to enhance or adjust the look as needed.

Following proper aftercare instructions and scheduling periodic touch-up sessions as recommended by your technician are essential for maintaining the longevity and appearance of your permanent makeup.

Touch-up sessions are typically scheduled 4 to 6 weeks after the initial procedure to address any areas where pigment may have faded unevenly and make any necessary adjustments to achieve the desired effect. These sessions help prolong the longevity of your brows.
