Cosmetic tattooing has been around for thousands of years, with evidence of the practice being done as early as 600 B.C. Microblading, however (although some form of it is said to have originated in Japan as early as 20 years ago) really only became popular and "on the radar"" of the American public 5 or 6 years ago. This "new" technique originally seemed like the greatest thing since sliced bread, but we are just now realizing how microblading ages over time, and it's not great.
Things other artists may not tell you (or may not know)
*Microblading is the most damaging method of tattooing, so it's not the best choice for anyone. Because of the way the pigment sits in an unsecured channel just under the skin, it will always migrate over time. Some just sooner than later.
*The stroke effect will blur, and will get all blended together if they are touched-up/refreshed too often. I really believe they need to be faded almost to nothing and then redone all over again to keep that desired stroke look.
*Microbladed eyebrows cannot be "color corrected" without going to a powder brow
If a client wants microblading only I tend to do it (providing their skin is dry and they've had no previous tattooing on their brows) but I always inform them of the drawbacks and try to urge them towards powder brows. I let them know that microblading is a gateway, so it can be done a few times, but eventually they will need to be converted to powder brows.
