Should I get Microblading or traditional Eyebrow Tattooing? What are the key Differences and Why They Matter?
Microblading is a form of cosmetic tattooing that uses a manual hand tool to create delicate hairstrokes to replicate the look of actual hairs. The size and thickness of the blades can determine how the hair stroke will look, and if microblading is done properly, will create a crisp line that mimics the look of natural hair. Microblading, while similar to traditional eyebrow tattooing still has many differences. Traditional tattooing methods include the insertion of a needle or needles into the skin in a tapping movement. This can be done either by hand or machine, but machine is most common. This movement pushes a lot of pigment into the skin, causing the tattoo to be permanent and also uses a completely different ink.
So, what are the differences, and should they really matter to you? Let us compare here:

Microblading lasts on average, 12–18 months without touchups. Over time, the ink will fade significantly compared to a traditional eyebrow tattoo. Depending on your skin, it may eventually disappear. Traditional tattooed eyebrows tattoos last a lifetime typically.
