By Oct 03, 2019

Eyebrows define the face. They play a very imperative role in defining the aesthetics of the face. The symmetry, shape and fullness of the brows all work together to accentuate the eyes’ appearance and frame the face. But sadly not everyone has the fuller and well shaped brows that can mesmerize the beholders. Don’t dishearten, if you have patchy or thin brows. There is a non invasive session available to you in the form of microblading.

Microblading is a semi permanent session that can instantly improve the eyebrow area. It is a popular eyebrow enhancement technique that aims on improving the shape, thickness and definition of the brows. The procedure is done using a specialized hand-held tool that deposits dye into the second dermal layer of the skin, creating very fine strokes that mimic the natural eyebrow hair.

People often relate microblading to tattoo technique. While both the procedures sound similar, there are some pretty differences between both the techniques. For your better and clear understanding, here are the 4 key differences between both the session choices……


People who undergo the procedure of microblading tend to enjoy more natural looking result than the ones who opt for eyebrow tattooing. The differences in outcome are natural as unlike eyebrow tattooing, microblading technique creates individual hair-like strokes.


In microblading specialized pigments are used that mimic natural hair but as we all know tattooing is done with ink. Ink differs from pigment in the way it looks and fades over time. When the ink of eyebrow tattoo fades, it leaves behind a blue-green colored tint, particularly around the edges of the tattoo. This green color tint can be a big cause of embarrassment for the people as they are left with some oddly colored eyebrows that never look cool. But pigments used in microblading fade into a lighter version of the color. So the people retain a natural appearance.


Eyebrow tattoo is a permanent session choice while microblading is semi permanent. It means, there is no retake with eyebrow tattoos. Once it is done, it is done. You can’t rectify it or give a try to any other look. But it is not the case with microblading. Since it is a semi permanent technique, the results lasts about 6 months to a year. So, you can try the other look after this particular period of time or rectify your mistake if not happy with the previous choice.  The semi-permanent nature of microblading allows the users to change the look of their brow as trend changes.

  • PAIN –

Getting a tattoo can be relatively painful but getting microbladed is completely free from pain. Yes, a little discomfort is obvious. Most patients describe the feeling of microblading pretty similar to tweezing. To sum up even if both the session options sound similar, there are some key differences between both of them and based on those differences, it can be easily understood that microblading is a cut above eyebrow tattoo.
