What is brow microblading?
Updated: Oct 17, 2021
Manual microblading is a process that involves tiny, fine-point needles (instead of a tattoo gun) that make up a small disposable blade and handle (picture a very small tool that looks like a rat-tail comb) to scratch and deposit pigment simultaneously under your skin. The result? Realistic-looking brow hairs that don't wash off.
Sooo, is microblading a tattoo?
Yes, but also, no. Unlike tattoos that last forever, microblading is a form of semi-permanent tattooing (keep reading if you wanna know how long it lasts). For microblading, Piret uses a hand tool that lets her create thinner, more precise, hairlike strokes that aren’t as deeply ingrained into the skin (compared to, say, hairlike strokes created by a tattoo gun). The pigment also differs from that of a tattoo because it’s only semi-permanent, which means your body eventually ends up metabolizing it so it fades away, and the dye particles are less concentrated in microblading ink than in the ink of a traditional tattoo.

The cool thing about microblading is that you can have thick, ultra-faint brows, or even lost your brows due to alopecia, and a good microblader can still create the appearance of naturally full brows on anyone using any shade range. On her clients, Piret creates a custom color using several shades that match your hair color, so your brows will look multidimensional and real. Microblading in Malta.
