Can an Old Eyebrow Tattoo Be Covered with Microblading?

We often have clients who already have permanent makeup Chicago on their eyebrows or other body parts. They ask whether we may apply microblading over the existing tattoo. The reality is that if you already have an old eyebrow tattoo, we can't always fix it. But there is still hope! Here is all the information you need.


AN OLD EYEBROW TATTOO CAN ONLY BE COVERED UP IF THE OLD WORK WAS VERY LIGHT AND THE INK WAS NOT DEPOSED TOO DEEP.

The hair strokes won't be seen if your eyebrow tattoo is dark. Consider this: if you drew an eyebrow on paper, filled it in with a pen, and then added hair strokes to it using the same pen, the hair strokes would not be visible.

The same is true with eyebrow tattoos and microblading Chicago. Our artist won't be able to give you lovely, natural eyebrows if the ink is applied too deeply or if the pigment intensity is too high. Most of the time, an old tattoo cannot be covered by microblading eyebrows Chicago because it is too thick, deep, or black.


A SHADING OR COMBINATION TECHNIQUE WILL BE USED TO COVER UP THE EYEBROW TATTOO.

Please be aware that as part of our job involves concealing prior work, we cannot conduct pure microblading over a previous PMU. As a result, we use a shading approach or combination. When the artist shades, they fill in the brow to give it a powdered appearance.

Combination brows are produced by combining microblading with shading to get a look that has some hair strokes but is filled in, giving the overall appearance of being fuller. The shading enables the artist to combine our work with theirs while we're undertaking a cover-up. Our artist will provide a suggestion for what would work best in your circumstance after you have submitted your three images.


The best option may be tattoo removal if we are unable to do a tattoo cover-up. We have the capacity to do removals in-house. If you want to have the removal done somewhere else, do your research on "saline removal" and "laser removal" (pico laser removal is one of the most cutting-edge types of laser removal now available on the market), then choose the method that works best for you. Based on the shape of your brows, your practitioner will be able to propose anything.


CONCLUSION

If you already have permanent eyebrows Chicago or an eyebrow tattoo, we hope that this will help you better understand your alternatives. Of course, feel free to contact us by phone or online mail if you have any queries. Remember, it's crucial to give us photos of yourself without any brow makeup on if you've had prior PMU, especially in natural daylight.
