Microblading seems to be the buzz word these days. I’m surprised though, at how many people ask me ‘What is Microblading?’. Microblading, otherwise known as Micro-Stroking, Feather Touch or Eyebrow Embroidery is a form of tattooing manually as opposed to using a machine like a traditional tattoo. The pigment is implanted into the upper layers of the skin which makes this process semi-permanent. If taken care of properly after the procedure, it could last anywhere from 1-3 years (results vary). Microblading has been around for over 12 years and has only recently been the hot topic in the U.K. for the last 3 years or so.
There are a lot of theories of where exactly Microblading started. From my understanding and research, Microblading started somewhere in China and it was called Eyebrow Embroidery. To this day the biggest client markets for Microblading are Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and China.
