Considering eyebrow tattoo but bamboozled by what choice to make? This simple test by Eye Art Studio will determine exactly what is the best eyebrow tattoo for you that is the safest and most suitable - or if cosmetic tattooing is the right choice for you at all.
I have a confession to make. Before getting into cosmetic tattooing in Melbourne a few years back, when the Eyebrow Tattooing phenomenon was getting as hot as blue eye shadows and permed hair in the 1980's, I found myself calling up every eyebrow tattoo artist in Melbourne to try and score myself an appointment, any available appointment that they would be able to fit me in to.
After all, who cares if it was 3D, 6D, 1100D eyebrow tattoo, eyebrow microblading, or the "block" style tattooed eyebrow method, simply because it would have made no difference to me. I just wanted to have whatever that everyone was having at the time, and that was simply tattooed eyebrows! And the earliest anyone could or would be willing to book me in, I was eternally grateful.
That was then, and this is now. With the industry experience and knowledge that I have today, coupled with a new found respect for skin science, I felt it necessary to compile an easy, simple test for Eyebrow Fanatics to find out quickly which Brow Tattooing method is best suited for your individual situation, so that you can make a safer, much more informed decision than I did, essentially, making the right choice that will give you better results and longevity, or to find out if Cosmetic Tattooing should be recommended for you at all.
Question 1. Are you prone to keloid scarring?
A. Yes I am
YOUR RESULT: Eyebrow Tattooing is not recommended for you, or any form of Cosmetic Tattoo services. Please try other types of Eyebrow products such as Henna or Eyebrow Tinting to help keep your skin and you healthy and safe.
B. No, I am not
Question 2. Are you currently pregnant or breastfeeding?
A. Yes, I am pregnant or breastfeeding
YOUR RESULT: All types of Cosmetic Tattoo is not recommended for you at this stage, your safest option would be to consider it again at a later date.
B. No I am not
Question 3. What is your skin type?
A. Dry - Go to question 4
B. Normal - Go to question 4
YOUR RESULT: We highly recommend Combination Brow Tattoo or Ombre' and Powder Brow Tattoo methods. Eye Art Studio do not recommend Eyebrow Feathering Tattoo for your skin type, as the mid term healed results will not last as long as other skin types. Eyebrow Microblading may be considered for you only with regular touch ups, we recommend once every 3 months.
D. Combination with an oily T-Zone - Go to question 4
Question 4. What is your level of sun exposure?
A. I am often exposed to the sun - Go to question 5
B. I am moderately exposed to the sun - Go to question 5
C. I am mainly an indoor person - Go to question 6
Question 5. Are you a highly active person who participate in sports that promote excessive sweating (high intensity sports, Bikram yoga, or are a regular user of steam rooms or spas etc)?
A. Yes I am
B. No I am not - Go to question 6
Question 6. Do you wear makeup on (select the following options)
A. Hardly ever, I am a mascara and go type girl.
YOUR RESULT: Eyebrow Feathering or 3D Eyebrow Tattooing are your best friends!
B. Every day for work and a little more when I go out.
YOUR RESULT: We recommend Eyebrow Microblading or Combination Brow Tattoo to be suitable for you!
C. Are you kidding me? Who even leaves the house without a full face on?
YOUR RESULTS: Your Brow Queen status would be best kept with the Combination Eyebrow Tattoo method or the Ombre' Powder Eyebrow Tattooing method.
If you have never had your brows tattooed before, I would personally recommend that the right brow tattooing method is select, along with the right Brow Tattoo Artist (be sure to check their Eyebrow Tattoo Before and After work), so that you can enjoy your new tattooed eyebrows for a much longer time, and avoiding instances where Eyebrow Tattoo Correction or Eyebrow Tattoo Removal is needed.
