How to do a tattoo of eyebrows
Permanent makeup is a strictly regulated procedure.
The choice of the shape of the eyebrows and the method of tattoo
The final version of the eyebrow shape is always chosen by the client. Before this, the master listens to his wishes and considers:
- eye section;
- the depth of their landing;
- face shape;
- nose shape, etc.
Before the procedure, the eyebrow contour is drawn by the master using a cosmetic pencil directly on the face, so that the client can assess the future result.
To make eyebrows look natural not only in shape, but also in color, they can match the hair color or be a half tone darker than it. The final pigment is selected by the master. Often shades of colors are mixed together in different proportions.
At the same stage, the master and the client determine the technique of permanent makeup. To date, they are used by several:
- hair, when the master draws each hair separately, the eyebrow looks as natural as possible;
- soft feathering, which is a solid line, but with soft borders;
- mixed when using both techniques at the same time.

Hair technique can be:
- European, with the drawing of hairs one to one, strictly in one direction;
- eastern, suggesting a repetition of natural hairline growth. On closer examination, they are intertwined, being directed in different directions.

Before the procedure, it is important to clean the skin from makeup and natural skin secretions. For this, masters use cotton swabs and antiseptics. The shape of the future eyebrows is applied with a special medical marker.
After that, the skin is re-treated with an antiseptic and apply anesthetic ointment or gel based on lidocaine. Usually, such measures are sufficient so that customers do not feel severe pain. Slight discomfort and tolerable pain are allowed. If the threshold of sensitivity is high, anesthetic injections may be required.
During the procedure, the master must open disposable needles in front of the client. This measure avoids the transmission of dangerous infections through the blood.
Anesthetic application before permanent eyebrow makeup
The procedure itself, depending on the complexity may take 1-2 hours. During it, blottings are removed with a cotton swab, the master works with a special machine, mixing and preparing pigments in advance requires shade.
For the first three hours after the master has introduced the pigment under the skin, every 30 minutes you need to apply a cotton swab to treat the chlorhexidine eyebrow.
Within the next two days, skin treatment with the same preparation should be carried out every 2 hours.
For the skin during the recovery period, you need to make sure that it is not tightened and not overdry. For the fastest healing on the third day after the procedure and over the next 5 days, eyebrows should be lubricated with Bepanten. Excess ointment should be removed immediately gently with a dry cloth.

Permanent makeup requires correction. During the procedure and during the healing period, the pigment may not go as planned. It depends on the characteristics of the body and skin. The boundaries of the eyebrows may blur, which is typical for skin prone to fat. Also on the lines may be spaces, they should be filled again.

The duration of the preservation of the tattoo and the manifestation of pigment
Regardless of the method used, the pigment behaves approximately the same. During the first week, the eyebrows will be as dark as possible.
During the second week, when the crusts begin to descend, the eyebrows will brighten by several tones.
In the third week, they will again become a little darker, and by the end of the third week you will be able to see the final shade.
The duration of fixation of the pigment depends on the colors with which the master works. High-quality modern pigments are kept in the thick of the skin until completely absorbed for about 2-3 years. During this period, the studied area gradually brightens.
Poor-quality or incorrectly selected pigments will soon be able to get a blue or reddish tint, different from the natural color of the eyebrows, after the procedure.
Permanent makeup is a serious procedure, the result of which will be visible on your face for several years. It should be entrusted only to experienced craftsmen with artistic and aesthetic taste, who have working skills and who are sure to follow the rules of antiseptics.
