There are three types of eyebrow tattoos:
Powder Fill Technique
The powder fill technique of cosmetic tattooing typically lasts longer than the Feather technique (Micro-blading). Due to the fact that the needle used in powder fill brows goes deeper into the skin compared to the Feathering technique. If you are looking for a longer-term eyebrow tattoo at Mimsy Beauty, the powder fill technique may be the best eyebrow option for you!
Powder fill brows may also be a better option for more slightly older men or women, as the hair stroke method tends to fade faster. The powder fill method goes deeper into the skin using small dots of pigment, gradually built up to look like natural eyebrows. This method has a very defined shape, but does not have to look blocky or heavy when done correctly.
Feather Technique (Micro-Blading)
A very natural, lifelike looking brow can be created using the Feathering Technique method, which essentially is using the tattoo needle to create lots of little hair like impressions by implanting pigment in a line under the skin.
The advantages are that it does look very natural, similar to real hair. It is perfect for people that already have good hair coverage, and for those who want to fill out gaps in their eyebrows where hair is missing, because the strokes can be made to mimic the natural hair present in colour, thickness and angle. In younger skin, it can even work very well for creating a complete brow where little to no hair exists.
Combination Technique is combined of Feathering and Power fill Technique. Feathering Technique looks more natural but generally it doesn’t last as long as the Powder Fill Technique due to the pigment doesn’t go as deep as the Powder Fill Technique. Therefore, Combination Technique is the perfect method for someone wants to have natural looking eyebrows but still lasts longer.
Also we suggest that have an initial powder fill treatment in a slightly lighter pigment that you would like for the final result, followed about 4-6 weeks later by a slightly darker hair stroke application over the top.

Looking After Your New Eyebrows After our Procedure
The pigment will appear very sharp and dark during first look after the procedure. Don’t worry, it is only the pigment that is sitting on top of the skin as it has not settled in completely. The colour of the pigment will soften gradually. Don’t be alarmed if you see some pigment on the cotton swab as this is excess pigment or bodily fluid that is naturally exiting your skin.
During the healing process of your skin, you might discover dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression that the colour pigment is fading. However, it is just superficial colour and dry skin naturally shedding from your eyebrows
Eyebrow After care and Retouches
The eyebrow and surrounding area should be kept dry for 5-7 days. This includes no swimming, saunas, steam, sweat or any facial products on or around the area.
Please do not use any oils or moisturisers across the forehead or eyelids. When showering please take extra care to ensure they are kept as dry as possible as this will help the pigment settle into the skin for longer lasting results.
Remove eye makeup in a downward direction on cotton pads. Do not scrub or wash the eyebrows.
