What is Microblading?

Microblading, known by other names such as eyebrow embroidery, micro-stroking, feather touch and etching is a form of permanent makeup that provides clients with a means of camouflaging or filling in missing or thinning eyebrow hair through the appearance of simulated hair using tiny deposits of cosmetic tattoo color pigment.

The basis behind the technique of implanting color pigment through tiny incisions in the skin could date back thousands of years however, in recent years, Asia has been credited for the microblading trend for brows.

Implementing the use of a small hand tool with needles fused together in a linear grouping, microblading does not involve the use of a machine, but employs hand drawing techniques to create individual, natural looking, crisp hair like strokes in the form of cosmetic tattooing. The needles used in microblading are even smaller in diameter than those used in traditional tattooing.
