ABOUT COSMETIC TATTOOING
The different Brow Tattooing techniques used at Feather Touch Brows and Beauty is ‘FEATHER TOUCH EYEBROWS’, ‘POWDER/ OMBRE BROWS’ & ‘COMBINATION BROWS’. Further information about each brow tattooing methods below.
Feather-Touch Brow Tattoo (also known as microblading), involves a hand-tool with a cluster of fine probes, which is used to implant pigment into the skin to create semi-permanent, life-like hair strokes and natural-looking eyebrows.
The benefits include:
Please take into consideration, cosmetic tattooing does not completely replace makeup for some and maintence is still required eg if you have light hairs you will still need to tint them.
POWDER / OMBRE BROWS
Powder / Ombre Brow Tattoo involves a digital method tattoo machine to shade pigment into the skin. The machine method is used to create the appearance of softly powdered brows either with an Ombre finish or full powdered finish.
This method is great for all skin types, however particularly better for correctional cover up of previous tattooing, sensitive skin and for those with an oily skin type.
Although this technique initially looks bolder in colour and sharply defined, is does heal soft and subtle.
This method of brow tattooing is suitable for:
Cover up of previous tattooing that has faded
Any client who prefers to look of this technique
An alternative to Feather Touch Brows
Suitable for oily skin types
Those who are not afraid of an initial “bolder” look, until a softer healed result settles into the skin
Shading creates more depth for those with larger gaps throughout their natural brow
Those who are after longevity of their brow tattooing
Combination Brow Tattoo is essentially a combination of both techniques mentioned above. This technique utilises a hair stroke method in the centre of the eyebrows to create a “soft” centre and then utilises the machine method on the mid-brow and tails to create the appearance of a softly powdered brow.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FEATHER TOUCH BROWS AND POWDER / OMBRE & COMBINATION BROWS
The main difference between Feather-Touch Brows and Powder / Ombre Brows is the type of equipment used and the healed outcome. Combination brow tattooing utilises a hand tool method AND a digital tattoo machine to create a soft shaded brow with a filled in outcome through the mid-brow and tails, whereas Feather-Touch brows utilises a non-electric hand tool to implant fine hair strokes into the skin, throughout the entire eyebrow.
Combination brow tattooing may create a longer lasting eyebrow compared to Feather-Touch alone.
