There is a wide range of terms used to describe this technique, the more general being Microblading. Other common terms are; Feather eyebrow tattooing and Eyebrow embroidery. Whilst terms may vary, they all broadly refer to the same process where an artist applies colored pigmentation to a client's eyebrows using a fine bladed hand-tool. This creates small hair-like strokes to imitate natural eyebrows. Unlike a standard eyebrow tattoo, the pigments are not implanted into the skin and will naturally fade over time. This method is semi-permanent and can last up to 3 years depending on each individual's skin type.
