Eyebrow tattoo. Any recommendations in London area?(41 Posts)
15 years ago i trained as a beauty therapist.
We practiced waxing eyebrows on each other...a lot!
Mine have never recovered, I have used almost everything to make them thicker and to fill them in.
I'm moving to a humid country and don't want my eyebrows to slide onto my cheeks by mid day
Whistle stop trip to London planned in June so I want to get something booked ASAP.
I have contacted Karen Betts as she can get to Nottingham which is near me, she charges £795 for lips - this sounds a lot to me, waiting on prices for brows & eye liner. Does anyone know someone who has actually used her? Her website info sounds fab but I guess anyone can make a great website! (sorry to hijack thread!)
I had my eyebrows done by Karen Betts 4 years ago. They were nicely done although they do look dramatically dark at first - be warned! They do fade well. Only problem was I found her unprofessional - was kept waiting over 2 hours - there were a lot of us waiting in the Pontefract hair salon she uses (treatment room is upstairs). One woman actually walked out. Not offered a drink or anything on one of the hottest days of the year. Her prices are very expensive. When my treatment time came at about 5pm, Karen took me and another woman upstairs together and flitted between us doing our treatments with no hint of an apology and asked me what the customer who walked out had said. So, yes, she is good but I'm afraid customer service skills were non existent.
Very different to the glossy website, moneygrabbingish.
Pineapple, thanks for sharing your experience. Funnily I called her and wasn't impressed with the telephone conversation. I had pretty muh ruled her out after that.
Seeing as this thread has been reanimated I'm going to say, as someone with tattoos and piercings, that this is a really stupid idea.
a) beauticians are not tattoists and are mostly very poor at it
b) it will fade because of the nature of the skin on your face, and it will fade patchy and look like shit
c) the prices charged are a pisstake
d) if something goes wrong, you're stuck with it
I've known and met a few people that have had it done and it looked awful every single time. Very few people will be callous enough to tell you how awful it looks because they will likely know you have spent a lot and you can't do anything about it.
But hey, if you want to look like a scabby clown then go for it. It's not like they invented brow kits/pencils or anything. Even a tint job is better.
Ladies, I am looking to get my eyebrows tattooed. Any recommendations and pics?
I had microbladed brows, they look fab, very natural though they were very dark for the first few days. Really recommend
@GingerbreadBaubles Where did you get them done hun. I've never heard of Microbladed what does that mean?
I didn't get them done in London, I had them done by a tattooist who then trained in eyebrow tattooing.
Found this explanation
What is Microblading (Semi permanent, Eyebrow Embroidery, Brow Resurrection) method?
Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery) is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional hairstroke technique. It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because we’re impacting color closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no “spilling” under the skin.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as people who simply aren't happy with their eyebrows.
The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker, but fade significantly over a two week period. It is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.
The results can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.
Before choosing a technician for your procedure, PLEASE make sure you check out their previous work. Going blindly is never a good idea. Technicians who are proficient always provide before/after photos. Do not take anyone’s word for it. Always see with your own eyes and make an educated decision, based on their previous work. This is, after all, your face and even semi-permanent make up can cause some permanent changes to your skin. In this wonderful, technologically-advanced world, we can access just about any information we need. Use it to your advantage and be safe.
I've had a look at the website for Heidi Worman (and I live in Essex )
Can you give an approx price Linzy - did you have brows or other work?
What's her waiting list ?
My aunt had eyebrow tattooes done, looks really good . Her non-exsisting brows look fine and natural.
Linzy74 advertises for Heidi - that's pretty obvious and it's obviously off putting if Heidi is so bad that she needs to plant someone on mumsnet to talk about her. I'd say avoid.
infinity make up in Northampton
I know its not London but honestly the lady called tammy who does it there is an absolute artist
she draws on individual hair strokes and carefully measures and draws out where the perfect, most flattering eyebrows should be based on your face shape etc. she also advises on the best colour etc. she then draws them on with make up and doesn't start tattooing till you are happy with the look, which actually was straight away in my case
mine look amazing and no one can believe they are fake. I have top eyeliner done by her as well
I have eyebrows cosmetically tattoo.This procedure does not damage or inhibit hair growth in the future. . A few tips before having this done: make sure that both the artist are licensed by the city where they are located ask to see before and after photos can show him some pictures with result like this tattoo-journal.com/25-best-examples-of-eyebrow-tattoo/.
