There are definitely pros and cons attached to the practice of eyebrow tattooing and whilst one of the obvious benefits is the prospect of your eyes being ready to go as soon as you get up, you should also consider the known drawbacks and health risks before going ahead.
Some people have some cosmetic issues to contend with and that is why they turn to people like eyelid surgery specialist, Dr Ruth Hill Yeilding, whilst others who are concerned by sparse or non-existent brows are sometimes persuaded to consider eyebrow tattoos to provide a permanent solution.
Permanent makeup solutions such as eyebrow tattoos have a certain understandable appeal to some women who are swayed by the prospect of a timesaving answer that will give them the look of eyebrows that they want without the time and fuss of using pencils and brushes to create the look they want.
There is no question that when you have your eyebrows permanently tattooed, you will be shortening your makeup routine but it should also be pointed out that any form of permanent makeup is not without its drawbacks, so you should take the time to consider the pros and cons before going ahead.
Give your brows a chance
The feedback from a number of makeup artists for example, is that a number of their clients are often convinced that their brows won’t grow back, after a prolonged period of tweezing and waxing in order to get the shape and look that they want.
The general advice in this respect from the makeup professionals is that you should definitely give your brows a chance to grow back, no matter how convinced you are that this is not going to happen.
What has happened with some women, is that they have had plucked eyebrows that they were convinced were not going to grow back properly and therefore went to have them tattooed, only to find that a few months later that their brows have grown in again naturally.
If you give your brows a chance to grow back completely, you may actually find that you don’t need tattooing at all, just a bit of patience and maybe a bit of professional makeup intervention in the meantime.
Not always a good outcome
Another aspect that you should give consideration to is the fact that not all eyebrow tattooing has a guaranteed good outcome.
You can find examples of women who have had their brows tattooed in the wrong place and are also misshaped. In that situation, you may find that you end up trying to camouflage the tattoo and having to shape your eyebrows in a way that you don’t want to in order to cover up.
Patience is a virtue, and when you consider that there is always the chance that tattooing might not provide the solution and outcome that you are looking for, you might just find that you are rewarded for waiting by being able to grow your own brow hair how you want it, especially with a bit of professional makeup guidance along the way.
If you ask the majority of women who have already had a tattoo done, they will almost certainly testify that there is a degree of pain involved in the process, so you will need to be prepared for this if you do plan to go ahead with eyebrow tattooing.
The skin above your eyes is a delicate part of the face and therefore having permanent eyebrows tattooed there is going to be a painful process, although we all tend to have a different pain threshold, so it could be that you will cope with the process better than some others do.
Whatever your pain threshold, the pain involved in eyebrow tattooing is relatively short-lived, as it is a process that is fairly quick to complete.
One of the reasons why women choose to have permanent eyebrows tattooed is that it can offer them what they believe to be a better face definition.
If you manage to achieve a well-placed and perfectly shaped eyebrow with the procedure, this could help your face to look thinner and more polished, plus it could even assist in making your eyes look a little wider.
Some women actually choose to have their natural eyebrows removed altogether in order to achieve a permanent solution that is easier to maintain and care for, but whatever your view or objectives, do take time to think about it before going ahead, so you are more comfortable with the outcome.
