It’s not exactly news that microblading is BIG. The “permanent-makeup-with-a-fine-tuned-twist” method uses 3-D hair strokes (yes, it’s technically a tattoo-meets-semi-permanent-makeup) to create the look of fuller brows—but, as many experts warn, it’s not without it’s blunders. “The use of hand tools is the oldest form of tattooing that dates back thousands of years. In recent years, celebrities like Angelina Jolie brought similar style of tattooing (Sak Yant) back to the mainstream,” says Kerry Spindler, celebrity beauty expert at Sain Visage Med Spa & Beauty Bar, which has multiple locations in the Boston area. “Today’s micropigmentation tools have amazing and precise blade configurations that helped practitioners rediscover great techniques like microblading, which are carried out by trained permanent makeup artists.” Spindler also stresses that this is “a skilled art form” and if you see any of these red flags, you may want to stay away.
