Yes, you read that correctly!
I haven't had my eyebrows tattooed for about 4 years, and they were *very* faded. My eyebrows themselves are blonde, so I've always had to draw them in. About 6 years ago I had them tattooed for the first time - they looked amazing, but the 'soft-tap' method was quite painful and took quite a long time to heal (which is a problem when they're on your FACE!).
4 years ago I visited Deraly Fleming, who uses an actual tattoo gun instead of the soft-tap method (which is more like a scalpel) - this method is much better, hurts less, and healing time is very quick. To give you an idea, the photo above is about 1 hour after the treatment!
So here's the before and after shots. Before (you can see the faded line from the last treatment, about 4 years ago):
And after - about 1 hour after treatment:
I wore eyeliner when I went in there, mainly so she could see how I normally wear my make-up. In the 'after' photos, there's a bit of swelling, and there are a few ink splatters ... but they look pretty good, don't they?? I'm to go back after about 4-6 weeks for a touch up, as sometimes it can look a bit patchy after they've healed (like a normal tattoo, I guess). I think I might budget to get them touched up every year from now on too.
So if you're sick of drawing on your eyebrows every day, this is definitely a recommended option. Just make sure you check which method they use ;)
