Cosmetic Tattooing has evolved greatly over the past few years. Eyebrow fanatics can now rejoice with an expansive range of eyebrow tattooing techniques which deliver super natural, clean, fluffy eyebrows which are undetectable to the human eye! One of the most popular techniques at the present time being eyebrow feathering tattoo - also known as eyebrow microblading.


Eyebrow feathering, or eyebrow microblading in Melbourne, is traditionally a hand based eyebrow tattooing technique using a hand held pen and a very fine needle which contains multiple micro-blades. Eyebrow feathering technique can also be created through machine application.

During an eyebrow feathering tattoo session, the Eyebrow Tattoo Artist will create super fine, realistic tattooed hairstrokes to blend in with your natural eyebrow hair using a premium quality pigment chosen to match your natural eyebrow hair color.

Eyebrow feathering is perfect to fill in the gaps or balding spots within the eyebrows, or to completely give the eyebrows a new size, shape, and arch.

"Eyebrow Feathering delivers extremely natural looking tattooed hairstrokes and beautiful shape and arch, to enhance and highlight an individual's facial features, whilst giving the eyes instant lift and a youthful spark."

Eyebrow Feathering Tattoo technique is not recommended for oily skin types, or those who regularly use skincare products containing retinol, AHA and vitamin A, C and E agents.


Feathered eyebrows can last up to 2 and a half years, and are best maintained with a refresher touchup every 6-18 months, depending on the client's skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure and beauty regimes. Clients who tend to be outdoors more often, or who are active and sweat more tend to notice faster fading, and may require a refresher session sooner than others.


Eyebrow feathering, when done correctly, will take up approximately 2 hours. It is a walk in walk out procedure with no downtime.

There are 5 steps during an Eyebrow Feathering Tattoo session

1. Before an eyebrow feathering session, our Artist will first discuss your health and eyebrow goals, to ensure that eyebrow tattooing is suitable for you;

2. Eyebrow mapping session takes place. Eye Art Studio spend a lot of time in this process so that we can help you achieve the best eyebrows for your face, including shape, size, color, style vs lifestyle and other individual aspects;

3. Application of topical anaesthetic;

4. The eyebrow feathering process takes place;

5. Perfecting your new feathered eyebrow tattoo.

After this, a touchup session will be booked in to further perfect your new tattooed eyebrows at the 4-6 weeks mark. The eyebrow tattoo touchup session is as important as the initial feathering procedure, and it is where magic truly happens, so do not miss it.


Eyebrow feathering tattoo does not hurt as much as you may think. Our clients have rated the pain level to be only between 1-2 out of 10, with 10 being the most painful. Some would say that it is less pain than eyebrow threading, whilst others have often snoozed off during their eyebrow feathering session in our Melbourne salon. Before the eyebrow featheringprocess takes place, a topical anaesthetic will be applied to maximise your comfort.


Feathered eyebrows done well should look very natural, and the tattooed hairstrokes would not visible to the human eye.
