12 Mar Feather Touch Brow Tattoo
These days good brows are a life essential.
Just as clothing styles go in and out of fashion, so do brow shapes, and decade to decade the desirable brow is vastly different to the previous. Good brows are a sign of youth and have the ability to give a lifted and refreshed look to the face.
My problem is that I like to be on trend, and back in the 00’s the popular brow shape was thin, so I plucked and I waxed, and had the perfectly fashionable thin arched brow.
BUT just my luck, ten years on and everyone wants Cara Delevingne worthy power brows. Full and bushy yet natural looking.
As a consequence of my previous plucking, I was left with patchy, thin, pathetic looking brows.
I invested in good brow make-up products to make my brows look fuller each day, and it worked very well. Having good brows becomes addictive, you need them to look good everyday. When I woke up I the morning without my brows done I’d feel naked, and if I didn’t do my brows my make-up wouldn’t look complete.
But applying make-up products to your brows every single day becomes tiring. And as a result over the past few years we’ve seen the magnificent rise in popularity of the feather touch brow tattooing.
A feather touch brow treatment pretty much seemed to answer my prayers. It uses natural hair like tattoo strokes to mimic the look of real hairs which makes the brows look full and even.
I was excited….This could make my brows perfect EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
No more brow make-up…. Well, for the next 3 years at least.
How convenient when you’re on holiday, or at the beach, or on a make-up free weekend and still have perfect brows!!
Feather touch brow tattooing is semi-permanent and lasts for 3 years, which means you aren’t stuck with the same brow shape forever (just in case that thin brow comes back in 2027!).
The treatment sounded incredibly appealing to me.
In the quest for perfect full brows I’m certainly not alone. In fact, feather brow tattooing is one of the most popular beauty treatments of 2017, it’s a booming industry and has seen some rapid growth over the past few years.
In the brow tattoo industry reputation is everything. People realize that it’s imperative to find a brow specialist with a great reputation when trusting them with a tattoo that will be on your face for 3 years. Consequently most of the popular Sydney brow queens are running flourishing and rapidly expanding businesses and most are booked out for the next 6 months at least.
This type of tattooing has been around for several years, but because of the recent surge in popularity people are willing to pay big bucks, and travel long distances to get an appointment with one of the best. What used to cost a mere $500 now costs you anywhere from $900 to $2000 for 2 hours of time with one of the best brow specialists in Sydney.
But apparently good brows are worth it because Australian women are raving about the treatment and the results. And it’s not one particular demographic either, women from 18-80 years old are having their brows feather touch tattooed.
I went to Tanya Do who is an extremely popular brow technician based in Western Sydney (and yes she is booked out for the next 6 months straight). After stalking her instagram I figured the drive out west was worth it to get an appointment with Tanya, her worked looked great.
The appointment went smoothly and after 40 minutes with the numbing cream Tanya began the microblading. Before she started Tanya Do drew my brow shape on with a removable brow pencil so that I could see the shape she intended on creating.
Feather touch is generally done by microblading with either a hand held device or machine. Meticulous tiny tattoo strokes are made within the brow, then dye is appled to the area, and thankfully because of the numbing cream I didn’t feel any pain at all.
Afterwards the brows look very dark for a few days. I’ll be honest, I started freaking out, they were almost black. But as the days passed my brows healed and after a week the colour was perfect.
I’ve just been back for my 8 week touch up, (this is included in the original price) and it gives you a chance to perfect the shape and make sure the brows are perfect.
I honestly couldn’t be happier! It’s made such a difference to my daily routine, it saves me time and my brows look great even when I’m not wearing make-up.
