Reasons for an Eyebrow Tattoo Correction:
Shape Correction: To correct the shape of an old tattoo, we re-measure the eyebrows. We do this by marking the end, arch point, and beginning of each brow to align with the natural features of the face. In some cases, the old tattoo is outside the measurements of the "perfect brow" for you and correcting the shape is not possible without tattoo removal.
Colour Correction: To colour correct, we use the powdered technique to target the existing pigment with a colour correcting pigment. To explain this further, pigments used in cosmetic tattooing are primarily made up of Iron Oxide (Inorganic) and Carbon-based ingredients (Organic). Organic pigments retain more and fade cool over time, whereas inorganic pigments retain less and fade warm over time, therefore we use the theory of the colour wheel to target any undesirable undertones. The most common undertones we see are grey, blue and orange. To counteract the unwanted undertones, we use the opposite colour on the colour wheel. This is usually a two-step process, one session of colour correcting and the second to assess what is needed next, whether that is another round of colour correcting or to finish the brow (if the undertone is completely neutralised) by matching a colour suited to your complexion and your natural brow hairs. In some cases, the colour is too saturated or deep and tattoo removal is required.
