WHEN NOT TO TATTOO BROWS
(See before & after pictures below.)
I have seen so many women who are convinced that their brows won't grow back and much to their amazement, their brows do grow back, if they just give them a chance.,
Please stop tweezing and waxing if you don't need it. Go to a professional for shaping. Fads come and go. A natural well shaped brow never goes out of style. As we age, our brows can make a big difference in our appearance. You can wear less makeup if your brows define your eyes, and your expression. They create balance for the whole face.
If your brow hair is light and thin, there are ways to compensate for that without tattooing. There is no end to the options we have today to enhance your existing brow hair. If you have "wild ones", there are remedies such as clear gels and lamination. You can also use Pears Glycerin Soap to brush up and make the brow look bigger and hold the brow hair in place. It has been used in the movie industry for years.
If you are thinking if you should do permanent makeup I can advise you. Or would like to know what you can do with what you have, I can show you alternatives. Call me for a complimentary phone consultation. Send me up close pictures of your brows. A front view and a slight right and left angle. Make them clear. I can tell a great deal from pictures.

Set # 1
Client has plucked brows. She thought they would not grow back properly, and had them tattooed by another technician. The tattooing has faded.
After approximately two months her brows have grown in completely. We shaped them periodically during that time to get her through the growing-in stages. As you can see she has her own full brow and never needed tattooing in the first place! She can add shading for a more dramatic look. Could this be you??
Set # 2
Once again, client has become a little tweezer happy and didn't think her brows would grow in. I asked her to let them grow in, which took a couple of months.
2-3 months later, as you can see, her brows are filling in. They are not perfect yet, but there is a great deal of progress. She may need brow shaping from time to time.
Brows tweezed and waxed too much.
Brows almost completely grown in. Permanent makeup was not necessary.
The brow hair was colored to reveal the hair. I showed her how to color the brow hair and she was happy not to tattoo.
Brows have been over tweezed and cut too short.
Brows grown in
Brows trimmed underneath. She now has her own full brow.
I showed her how to fill the brow in with color if she wants more drama.
Brows were tattooed in the wrong place and are misshaped. She never needed tattooing. Brows are growing in and she camouflages the existing tattoo.
I trimmed brow growth. She can now begin to draw in the new brow and still camouflage the old tattoo.
I drew in the brow to show her the potential if the brow grows in.
More growth. I shaped the brow. At this point she could wear them just this way and still camouflage the old tattoo.
I showed her how to draw in the brow for a more dramatic appearance. She has the option of trying to remove the old tattoo, but it is fading and she prefers to cover it.
She has learned to shape her own brows. If you can't do that, then see me or a professional to help you maintain your new brows. It took patience on her part and the desire to have her permanent freedom back.
So can you.
Brows have faded. Look closely and you will see dark hair starting to grow. Also see picture below.
Brows have almost grown in. I shaped them for her during the growing in period. Her own brow hair almost completely covers the old tattoo. She never needed tattooing in the first place.
After Shaping the Brow
No Tattooing Necessary.
Brows Overtweezed and Sit Very High on Her Forehead
After 2.5 Months of Growth, I Shaped the Brow During the Growing in Stages
She Has Opted Not to Do Any Tattooing.
Brows completely over-tweezed. "N" had her brows tattooed and now wanted her own brows back again.
"N" contacted me through the Internet from my website to see how she could go about re-growing her brows and how to shape them. I marked the hairs to take, sent back the pictures to her, and we did this a few times all via the Internet.
Because she had the patience, "N" was able to follow my instructions. The pictures below show one of the growing in stages and then the final result.
Final result. "N" did it and is so rewarded. Fortunately, the brow hair came in over the old tattoo. She is now able to maintain her own brows. There is nothing better than your own brow. Congratulations "N" You did it!!
As you can see she had been tattooed where you see the red. You can also see some potential brow growth.
She came in just wanting to remove the tattoo. Because I could see that hairs would come in over alot of the tattoo I suggested that we wait to do removal until the brow grew in.
I got her through the growing in stages and now she has a beautiful full brow. We are not going to attempt removal at this point because in person the red is very faded and can easily be covered up with a little makeup. She is extremely happy with the result as is her husband.
I just wanted to email you and say how much I appreciate your section called when to not tattoo eyebrows. Most techs don't advertise to let your brows just grow. They will push you to get the tattoo done. My father naturally gave me thick brows and I overtweezed so i went to get them tattooed and the tech destroyed them. It took two years to remove and regrow my eyebrows. I recently overtweezed so I'm letting them go for a full six months using a special serum that I love. It accelerates the growth process. Seeing your section on when not to tattoo inspired me not to get it done again and just wait till they grow so I can shape them and fill them with powder. Thank you again for your inspiration.
