Which one shall I choose?
You may be wondering why there is such a wide range of choice of eyebrow tattoos in my services list. The various brow tattoos differ in the way they are made and the way they look in the end. First, I draw the contours, which needs to be done with high precision and as such, takes a considerable amount of time. I always devote the time needed for this initial phase, as your face will portray what I have created for many years to come. Before the treatment, your eyebrow hair is not shaved. The more original hair you have left in your brows, the more natural your permanent make-up will look.
A relatively simple procedure is used when making the "classical eyebrow" tattoos. First, I draw the contours, then do the powdering. Only one colour is used, evenly. Its advantage is that, due to the powdering technique, more paint is absorbed into the skin, therefore the tattoo will last longer. A follow-up treatment for refreshing the colour is required. This tattoo gives a less natural look to your face than the other tattoo types. Nowadays, the tattoos below are becoming widely popular, so read on and find out more about them.
Soft Powder Eyebrows, how are they made?
As a first step I sterilize, then anaesthetize. The question I always hear before the treatment is: "Is it going to be painful?" Well, today we use the best anaesthetics and the most sophisticated permanent make-up devices, so I can assure you, it is not painful at all. Not to mention that the brow area is a less sensitive area than the lips are, for example.
The Soft Powder procedure is rather complex. Several shades of the same colour are used to achieve a nude, powdered effect. Or as an alternative, one colour is applied with varying colour intensity. The lower contour of the brow is more emphasized, while the upper one is blurred, which gives a natural look to the tattoo. Follow-up treatment may be required in this case too. Believe me, your face will be restructured after having brows of a "new" shape and colour. Note that the colours are noticeably brighter after the treatment, which will then fade with time.
Hair Stroke Eyebrows - made this way:
Important: I do not draw contours for the Hair Stroke brows. I simply etch very thin, tiny strokes in the eyebrows in alignment with the original hair. The tattoo will look more natural, as there is no contour around the brows. Made with this technique, the tattooed eyebrow will never look as dark as a powdered one, for example. The skin under the eyebrows and your original strokes remain well visible between the tattooed strokes. This is in-trend today, giving your face a natural look and defining your brows only as much as we want them to. This tattoo fades more quickly from the skin than the other types. The tiny tattooed strokes can only carry a little paint in order to stay thin, so less paint is absorbed into the skin.
The pictures below feature some of my recent work. Right after the treatment, the colour of the eyebrows appears brighter and the skin is visibly red. I am aware that pictures of young, blooming skin with no blushes are a lot more attractive. However, unlike many of my colleagues, I have decided not to photoshop any of the final results and therefore not to distort reality. I am dedicated to showing you how it works in reality, so that future disappointments can be avoided.
