Cosmetic tattooing, also referred to as semi-permanent makeup or micro-pigmentation or more commonly known as "microblading", is the manual process of implanting pigments into the upper layers of the skin using "brushstrokes" that mimic the appearance of real hair. Because of the placement in your skin and by using pigments instead of ink, these fine lines fade over time (about a year) back to your natural brow shape! I apprenticed while I was back in Honolulu and was given the opportunity to try it out for myself.

This is Aviva, her brows were naturally very sparse and had their own unique shape. She wanted them to be fuller and she showed me pictures of her brows when she pencils them in (every morning!). She has told me that this process has cut her morning routine in half! Thank you Aviva!

I was so excited to do her brows that I completely forgot to take a before photo!
