Microblading is an advanced tattooing process where a small handheld instrument is used to apply a semi-permanent color to the skin using tiny needles. The needles are not sharp and they are attached to a thin skin surface that contains thousands of tiny bladed needles. The color can be applied to any surface of the body including the face, neck, back, chest, arms, and legs.
Microblading can be done by amateur tattoo artists, professional tattoo artists, and medical professionals. Microbladers believe that because the needle is so small, it does not cause injury to the body. They use special safety equipment to avoid any type of injury. They wear gloves and goggles to protect their eyes and skin.
A microblader uses a variety of different colored ink. The ink is injected into the skin through tiny holes that are made by the machine. There is a small red dot in the center of the needle that allows the ink to be absorbed by the skin in a very precise way. The machine usually has a number of settings that allow the operator to control the amount of ink that is injected into the skin during the tattoo procedure.
Before getting microbladed, the tattooed area of the body should be cleansed with a bar of mild soap and water. After that, the microblade should be inserted into the skin in such a way that the needle points downward. The operator should then push the blade all the way up to the end of the skin where it is held.
The microblader injects different colors onto the body. The color may vary depending on the area of the body being tattooed and the type of ink used. Different colors may also be used at different places on the body. Each person may have to go through several microblading sessions before getting the desired color. The machine can be used repeatedly.
The microblader also has a micro tune feature wherein if the tattoo is not perfect the first time, the operator can use the microtune feature to make a second, better tattoo design.
Microbladers do not cause pain or scarring, as is sometimes believed. In fact, some microbladers even have soothing sounds to help relax the skin and allow the tattoo to heal more quickly. The microblader’s needles do not penetrate the skin surface where the pain is felt. Microblading can be done in a hot or cold environment.
The tattoo artist will not need to perform any medical procedures on the tattooed area after the tattoo is completed. They are not sterilizing the area after the tattoo has been completed.
Microblading is not recommended for all tattoo designs. Only certain areas of the body can benefit from microblading. The skin that is tattooed should be properly cleaned before the procedure. The tattoo should also be dried properly before it is tattooed and the healing area should be free of oil and dirt before microblading.
If your tattoo is one of those that can be microbladed, look for a professional who is well trained and experienced with tattoo designs. If you choose a tattoo artist who is not trained in tattoo designs, you may be putting yourself at risk.
Once you have chosen a professional to do the microblading for you, discuss the options with them before choosing a tattoo. You may want to discuss the types of tattoo designs that the microblader will be able to ink onto the area you wish to have tattooed. They will need to determine if you want only one color or multiple colors.
The artist you choose should have experience with tattooing skin that is smooth and light. A microblader works best with a lot of pigment in the tattooing area. The tattoo should be clean and free of infection.
A tattoo should also be tattooed over the healing area with minimal downtime. Some people prefer to have the microblader work in the creases and folds of the skin to cover up the tattoo. Tattoo removal may be necessary for some people depending on their tattoo’s design. Microblading aftercare should also be taken seriously, as this will affect the result of the process, aesthetically speaking.
