Microblading is a tattooing technique in which a small handheld tool made up of several tiny needles is used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin. Microblading differs from standard eyebrow tattooing because each hair stroke is created by hand producing thin, natural looking lines.
It is typically used on eyebrows to attempt to either create, enhance, or reshape the appearance of the eyebrows. Microblading deposits pigment into the upper region of the epidermis, so it fades more rapidly than traditional tattooing techniques, which deposit pigment deeper into the dermis.
