Eyebrow Tattoo

Different people get their eyebrows tattoed on or filled in for various reasons. Regardless of the reason why people get an eyebrow tattoo one thing is for certain; People do get eyebrow tattoos and they are more popular than one would think.

Eyebrow Tattoo History

The tattooing that we know today originated in the Polynesian Islands. The word Ta tau means ” appropriate, balanced, and fitting”. This explains what we try to achieve when we get semi-permanent eyebrow tattoos.

The history of permanent cosmetics began thousands of years ago. Sharpened sticks and stones were used to in plant natural pigments into the skin. Mummies that date back to the era of Cleopatra still show signs of permanent hand tattoo makeup. Cleopatra had intricate permanent makeup. Many Egyptian tattoos were of symbols that had special meaning to the individual who had the tattoo.

A Few Reasons Why A Person Would Get An Eyebrow Tattoo

It is a time saver

If you are like me, and time is very valuable to you. I can certainly understand why you would get a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo it saves a lot of time. This way you would’nt have to worry about filling your eyebrows in or drawing some on. You would’nt have to worry about wiping off one of your eyebrows, and only having one left. You also would’nt have to worry about people staring at you due to you wiping off the eyebrow mentioned in the former sentence.

    Hi and thanks for this really great article

    Ive wanted to get eyebrow tattoos but am really worried that they will look too heavy. 

    A few months ago I got my eyebrows tinted as a sort of trial and I was really disappointed with the result;  I went straight to the shopping centre bathroom and scrubbed them off. 

    What would you recommend for someone who wants just a slightly enhanced look? 

    • YeKeiseaya Fugerson says:

      You would have to shop around in a sense, read the reviews, and sometimes you just have to take a risk. Maybe where you went the first time they were not as good at their craft as you would like.  I recommend going to another place that does it, or using a eyebrow tint kit that you put on yourself that why you can control how dark or how light your eyebrows are.

    Thanks for this great review about the eyebrows tattoo, sometimes ago my friends and I went to do permanent eyebrows, which later ended up unsuccessful for one amongst us, I wanna ask does this the eyebrows making depends on the nature of the eye or the skin?thanks for the review 

    • YeKeiseaya Fugerson says:

      From what I read in my research it varies from person to person. For one person it could be the nature of the eye and for others it could be the skin.

    Ladies where I live in have some really nice eyebrows tattoo and that alone enhances their look and their eyes give a more different and nic look kind of which I do not really understand how until I had mine. I was taken to the place where I was to have my eyebrow tattoed and after the whole process, i was looking just like they were looking and after a couple of days i was feeling some itching around try area worked on, what could be the cause?

    • YeKeiseaya Fugerson says:

      That could be caused by healing. After all, it is an actual tattoo. Tattoos itch like crazy when they heal. I recommend that you put some type of moisturizer on them.

    This is really great to see here. It is true that time is no man’s friend and it keeps ticking away and to save some, hacks need to be put in pkace. This is really great to see here and I fancy it a lot. I saw a colleague at work who had something Luke this semipermanent eyebrow and it was well done and almost perfect. So, all I seek to know is if there are skin relations to making it or it is strictly for everyone.

    Thanks a lot for this amazing information, it really bores me to wait for my wife for about 1 hour after I’m dressed for an occasion we’re to attend together, what takes her time? Make up.  I like the idea of tattooing the eyebrows, it is a time saver and even stress saver, I’ll introduce it to my wife.

  6. MrBiizy says:

    Hello YeKeiseaya, thank you for sharing this post on eyebrow tattoo. I have seen my lady friend do eyebrow make up using the eyebrow pencil on several occasions. I didn’t have an idea about eyebrow tattoo and I am sure she doesn’t know anything about it.

    I have seen some persons with the hair loss problem before now, but I never knew what he cause was. so I learnt alot from this post. Plus I have gotten one extra gist for my lady.

    All the best!

    Hi, thank you for this informative review. I have been thinking about getting this done for a while because I have thin eyebrows which don’t grow any thicker. 

    I was looking into it and I was advised to brush my eyebrows everyday with a proper eyebrow brush and this stimulates the follicles and thickens them over time. I have to say this is working. So I will continue with this and then look at the semi-permanent option. 

    I had no idea there is a permanent option, this scares me a little as I worry that they will be done too thick and too dark – some ladies have them so thick and it really wouldn’t look right on me. 

    Reading your article has made me want to research who’s around locally to see what their reviews are like. 
    Thanks again!

    My girlfriend always feel awkward with her super-thin eyebrow and this might be the solution she’s looking for. There are times that in pictures, she looked like she doesn’t have an eyebrow at all, so this might help her. I’d like to show this to her so she could consider having a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo. But I’d like to make sure, how safe is this procedure? What is the substance to be used and is it safe with no side-effects?

    • YeKeiseaya Fugerson says:

      I recommend that she visits a few businesses who have licensed Estheticians that provide the service. They use a certain type of pigment, not like the ink you find in the regular tattoos. I have not read about anyone having had any adverse effects from getting  their eyebrows tattooed on except the itching they feel when they are healing. That can be cured with some ointment. I believe they will provide her with such ointment, if she does decide to get the procedure done.

    Hello, wow eyebrow tattoo is an attractive and helpful article. I think that every woman that will read your article will learn the best thing about eyebrow tattoo. I agree the eyebrow tattoo is a great choice for mums like me. I have a little girl, and she doesn’t let me time for my self in most of the days, so I find eyebrow tattoo the best thing to do because It saves me time, and I don’t have time to do make up every day. 

  11. Cathy says:

    I’ve been dabbling on the idea of getting an eyebrow tattoo because they are starting to turn white – much to my dismay – and not as voluminous as it used to be. But after reading your article, I am a bit apprehensive. These procedures are more costly than I thought. I may hold back the idea for a while until I get enough budget. 

    • YeKeiseaya Fugerson says:

      I say take your time. And there are easier ways you can use an eyebrow tint kit or use an eyebrow pencil to darken them.

  12. Kell says:

    You have really talked at length about eyebrow tattoo, and this is what some women consider when talking about saving time and money. Well, I’m not a lady but I think that most girls will find this useful.

    What I’ve benefited from this is the discussion on Alopecia Areata (Baldness & Hair Loss). Knowing the early signs and symptoms of which you’ve listed will help us to get a remedy in a timely manner.

    Great article.
