Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup originating in Japan, also referred to as eyebrow embroidery, eyebrow feathering, or soft tap. Unlike permanent makeup for the brows, this process does not use a traditional tattoo machine, so it doesn’t give a harsh look, and discoloration over time is rare. Because a handheld tool is used to make these micro-incisions instead of a machine, microblading doesn’t penetrate the skin as deeply as a traditional tattoo, so it will fade completely within 2 years for most (hence semi-permanent) and has a much shorter healing time. Using this handheld tool also means we can achieve a more realistic look with a very low risk of scarring.
