Eyebrow Tattooing

Eyebrow Tattooing In London

Micro-pigmentation eyebrow tattoos are the most popular of all the permanent makeup procedures available at my London-based clinic. Why? Because the right-shaped eyebrows can be an incredible beauty asset. Perfectly shaped brows can balance the rest of the face, highlighting your best features and downplaying any flaws. If you have sparse brows, you probably spend time applying eyebrow makeup every morning and later in the day. Cosmetic tattooing, also known as semi-permanent makeup, will eliminate the need for a long morning makeup ritual.

Besides the choice of technique when performing semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing, such as hair stroke or powdered, the eyebrow shape and your face shape are essential. For example, having a round brow on a round face will make a face appear even rounder; an angled brow is optimal. An angled brow with a high arch on a long face will make a face appear longer, so a flatter shape is much more desirable.

What To Expect With Brow Permanent Makeup?

Attention also needs to be paid to lighter skin colours, as 80% of clients have a blue undertone, so care needs to be taken to ensure the colour used isn’t too cool. Otherwise, the tattoo can end up with a blueish tinge. Colours are tested on the skin above the brow to ascertain which is the best colour for the skin and the preferred colour choice of the client; again, no tattooing is done until the client is 100% happy with the choice of colour.  All of our pigments are top-quality, stable, and true-to-colour pigments.  We only use the best!!  Using cheap pigments may save money initially but ultimately will cost more with the correction work needed down the line.

Once the client is happy to proceed, a topical numbing cream keeps the client comfortable. The client will be kept informed during the procedure and, near the end, will be shown the eyebrows for any adjustments to be made if needed for a perfect end result.

Once the client is delighted with their new eyebrows, they will be given an aftercare sheet and a top-up appointment for 4 to 6 weeks after the eyebrows have healed. The second appointment is to go over any areas that may have faded slightly during the healing process; this also strengthens the colour and helps it last longer before needing future top-up appointments. With the quality pigments I use and good aftercare, it could be years rather than months before a top-up is needed.

Who Should Have Brow Tattoos?

Brow tattoos are long-lasting and, therefore, a big decision to make. Any type of permanent makeup, including tattooed eyebrows, microblading, permanent eyeliner, or semi-permanent lip liner are procedures much in demand in the beauty industry. PMU is perfect for those who struggle to find time to put on makeup in the morning, or who don’t have skills in makeup application, or who have a disability that makes it hard to administer.

Brow tattoos are also a solution to replace brows lost due to alopecia or a medical procedure that causes hair loss.
