Microblading is a tattoo. Anytime pigment or ink is inserted into the skin a tattoo is being performed. I can’t count the number of times clients have told me they absolutely don’t want a tattoo because of negative perception of old styles or even due to religious reasons. There are many methods of tattooing. Microblading is one such method. It is a manual method that is performed without the use of a machine using a sterile needle tip held by a pen like handle. The needles are in a single file line and are most often in a slanted or U shape.
The artist uses the tool to create hair like scratches in the outer layers of your skin while simultaneously implanting pigment.
