At Blink Lashes we’re all about enhancing the beauty of your eyes. Your eyebrows are just as important as your lashes so we’re excited to introduce Cosmetic Tattoo – Eyebrow Microblading! If you’ve tried every pencil, powder, pigment, gel, and stencil at the makeup counter and your brows are still sparse, this is the answer. Microblading is a more permanent fix for thin brows that will take your brow game to the next level!
What is Microblading?
Microblading is considered a “cosmetic tattoo”. Unlike a regular tattoo, Microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. Our highly skilled trained professionals will draw hair-like strokes with a tool to mimic natural hairs in your brows. We can customise the design to create the desired shape, color and density that you’d like.
Here are some benefits of Eyebrow Microblading:
- Saves time in front of the mirror putting on make-up everyday
- It can save you money in the long run because they eliminate the use of makeup products such as brow pencils, powders, tints, and dyes
- Makes the eyebrows fuller for people with naturally thin, sparse or light colored brows
Microblading is a semi-permanent treatment that can last 12-18 months. The pigment will naturally fade over time, just like any other tattoo. How long it lasts differs for each individual because it depends on many factors like skin type, sun exposure and skincare. To maintain sharp, crisp looking brows we suggest to re-touch them every 6-18 months.
Keep an ‘eye’ out because in the future we will offer other services to enhance your eyes like powder fill, ombre, combination effects as well as eyeliner!

What are the benefits of Cosmetic Tattoos?
Some of the benefits of Cosmetic Tattoos include:
- Saving money and time by not having to get your eyebrows continually shaped or tinted
- Making your eyebrows look full even though you may have lost hair from aging or medical treatments
- Saving time applying makeup every day
- Eyebrows look good even during physical activity such as swimming or sports
What does the Cosmetic Tattooing process involve?
The cosmetic tattoo procedure involves using a small hand pen-style machine to deposit pigment into the skin. It repeatedly inserts small amounts of your chosen colour pigment in the required area. The pigment remains in the skin indefinitely although the colour may fade over time due to ageing of the tattoo, health or environmental factors. Eventually, retouching may be required. At Blink Lashes, we specialise in eyebrow tattoos (hair stroke and partial/gap-filling).
How long does the treatment take?
The entire process for Eyebrow tattoos usually takes about 1-2 hours. The longest part of the procedure is the initial consultation and the brow drawing process. The actual tattooing can be done within 45-60 minutes. We’ll always spend a lot of time to combine what your preferences with what suits your eye and face shape. We want you to be happy and comfortable with everything before any tattooing begins.
What is the difference between powder-fill/solid brow and hair-strokes or feathering for eyebrow tattoo?
Hair stroke involves cosmetic tattooing on tiny lines/strokes in a design that gives the appearance of hair. Hair-strokes alone, with no background, require more re-touching than other methods. Powder-fill gives a more defined, solid appearance, and usually lasts longer than hair strokes.
A good balance that will both last long and look natural is a combination of these. A lighter powder-fill will be done at the first appointment, then hair-strokes over the top, to give texture and a realistic, hair-like appearance. During your initial consultation, we can discuss these options and see which one you prefer best.
Does the cosmetic tattoo hurt?
It generally doesn’t hurt. It depends on the individual though. Some people don’t feel anything at all, some feel a little bit of discomfort for the first 5-10 mins.
You’ll need to purchase and apply some EMLA cream over the eyebrow area 1 hour prior to your treatment (we stock it in the salon to make it easier for you). This cream acts as an anesthetic and will help minimize any pain/discomfort during the procedure.
Is the cosmetic tattoo a safe procedure?
Absolutely! Our salon is clean, hygienic and compliant with all Department of Health Regulations for Skin Penetration. The cosmetic tattoo machine is safe and designed to use with disposable parts. Anything that comes into contact with you will be brand new, sealed prior to your treatment are be disposable. Allergic reactions to the pigments are very rare. The pigments brands used are trusted, long-established USA made brands that have been on the market for decades. The pigments contain iron oxide that is already present in the human body, so highly unlikely to cause a reaction.
We recommend to do a Patch Test prior to the treatment if you are concerned and highly sensitive and prone to allergies.
Can the cosmetic tattoo be removed if I change my mind?
Most cosmetic tattoos can be removed with specific laser treatments, but it can be quite difficult and many treatments are usually needed. As a result, we suggest thinking of eyebrow tattoos as permanent. If you’re not sure whether it’s something you’d want in a few years, we suggest taking some more time to think about it until you are certain you want it. If you definitely want to do it but you’re unsure of what style or look you’d like, we recommend going with something less dramatic and lighter. For example, a thin top liner, or lighter brown hair stroke brows. Keep in mind, it’s a lot easier to retouch a treatment and make it thicker or darker but impossible to do the opposite. You can always go darker or more dramatic at your adjustment appointment!
Can I have Cosmetic Tattoo done if I’m pregnant/breastfeeding?
We don’t recommend it because the treatment involves anaesthetic and you’ll to be laying flat for an extended period which could be uncomfortable for you. We may be able to go ahead with it if you present written medical clearance though.
What colours/pigments are available for me to choose from?
We have a big range of different pigments for you to choose. We often customise the colour by mixing multiple pigments together to create the shade you’re looking for and suits your skin/hair tone. During the initial consultation, we’ll go through the different colour options together.
