If you’re tired of filling in your brows every morning or you want to enhance your natural shape, you might be interested in eyebrow tattooing. Eyebrow tattooing is a cosmetic procedure that involves applying pigment or ink to your brow area using a handheld machine or a specialized tool. It can create realistic hair strokes, powder effects, or combination brows that suit your preferences and face shape.
But before you book your appointment, there are some things you need to know about eyebrow tattooing. In this blog post, we’ll answer some of the most common questions and concerns about this popular beauty trend.
What are the different types of eyebrow tattooing?
Semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing uses pigment and inserts it superficially into the skin, creating fine hair strokes or powder effects that mimic natural brows. It can last for one to two years, depending on your skin type and aftercare routine and then a touch up session is recommended to keep your brows looking on point.
Ombre/Powder brow - This technique uses a needle to create pixels or a powder effect on the brow. It can create soft or bold brows that look like they have been filled in with makeup.
Microblading - This technique uses a specialized tool with fine needles to create realistic hair strokes on the brow area. It can create natural-looking brows that blend in with your own hair.
Combination Brows - This technique combines microblading and ombre/powder brow to create a natural hair stroke look with the enhancement of the powder effect for more definition.
At Rare Lash Factory, we offer all these techniques and more. Our experienced artists will help you choose the best option for your desired look and lifestyle.
The cost of eyebrow tattooing varies depending on several factors, such as:

How do I prepare for my eyebrow tattoo session?
Before getting your eyebrows tattooed, there are some steps you need to take to ensure a smooth and successful procedure:
Do your research - Find a reputable artist who specializes in eyebrow tattooing and has positive reviews from previous clients. Look at their portfolio or social media pages to see their style and design.
Book a consultation - Schedule an appointment with your chosen artist before committing to the procedure. During the consultation, you can discuss your expectations, preferences, medical history, allergies, and any questions or concerns you may have.
Avoid certain medications - Some medications can thin your blood or interfere with healing, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, anticoagulants, and antibiotics. Consult with your doctor before stopping any medication.
Avoid alcohol and caffeine - These substances can also thin your blood and cause dehydration, which can affect the quality of the pigment and the healing process. Avoid drinking alcohol or caffeine at least 24 hours before and after your session.
Keep your brow area clean - Wash your face gently with mild soap and water before your session. Avoid using any makeup, moisturizer, sunscreen, or exfoliant on your brow area. Also avoid waxing, threading, plucking, or tinting your brows at least two weeks before your session.
What happens during my eyebrow tattoo session?
Your eyebrow tattoo session will take about two hours from start to finish. Here’s what you can expect:
Numbing - Your artist will apply a topical anesthetic cream on your brow area to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. You may feel some pressure, pinching, or scratching sensations, but they should be tolerable and subside quickly. The numbing cream will take about 20 to 30 minutes to take effect and will last for the duration of the session.
Mapping - Your artist will measure and draw your brow shape according to your face symmetry, bone structure, and preferences. You can review and approve the shape before proceeding to the next step.
Tattooing - Your artist will use a handheld machine or a specialized tool to apply the pigment or ink to your brow area, following the mapped shape. They will also blend the color with your natural hair and skin tone for a seamless look.
Cleaning - Your artist will wipe off any excess pigment or blood from your brow area and apply a soothing ointment to protect and moisturize your skin.
How do I take care of my eyebrow tattoos after the session?
After getting your eyebrows tattooed, you need to follow some aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and optimal results. Depending on the type of technique used, you may need to follow either a dry heal or a wet heal method.
Dry heal is an older method that involves keeping your brows dry and letting them heal on their own with no assistance. With dry heal, you may experience more scabbing and color loss, but there is less risk of infection or irritation.
Wet heal is a newer method that involves wiping your brows with sterile water or saline solution every few hours for the first few days after the session. You may also need to apply a healing gel or cream to keep your skin hydrated and prevent scabbing. With wet heal, you may experience less scabbing and color loss, but there is more risk of infection or irritation if you don’t follow proper hygiene.
Your artist will advise you on which method is best for you based on your skin type and technique used.
How often do I need touch-ups for my eyebrow tattoos?
The frequency of touch-ups for your eyebrow tattoos depends on several factors, such as:
The type of technique used
The quality of pigment or ink used
Your skin type and condition
Your aftercare routine
Your sun exposure and lifestyle
In general, semi-permanent eyebrow tattoos require one touch-ups per few year to maintain their shape and color.
