Microblading VS Eyebrow Tattooing

Microblading VS Eyebrow Tattooing

What’s the difference between microblading vs eyebrow tattooing? It’s easy to mistake the two as the same procedure. However, they’re actually completely different.

Both microblading and eyebrow tattooing are beauty enhancement techniques. Although—spoiler alert—many consider microblading the better option.

That’s why Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) only offers microblading. Here’s a rundown of why:


  • Microblading: Fine lines are hand-drawn by skilled artists. Lines do not bleed over time.
  • Eyebrow Tattooing: Lines are not as fine as those done via microblading. They may also bleed over time. Lines eventually get thicker over the years, as well.


  • Microblading: Effects last two to five years. Experts designed the procedure for once a year retouching. This means you always have the option of changing up your style with something trendier than last year’s look.
  • Eyebrow Tattooing: Eyebrow tattoo remains permanent, even if you are running the risk of discoloration.


  • Microblading: OPM pigments are all organic, made only from natural ingredients. This gives the assurance that there will be no changes in the color and no side effects. The pigment may lighten its saturation but will never change its hue.
  • Eyebrow Tattooing: The kinds of ink used are the traditional ones, which turn blue or brown over time. Pigment discoloration lead to a mismatch with skin tone, leaving your eyebrows looking unnatural.


  • Microblading: The needle doesn’t enters past the papillary dermis, so the procedure won’t hurt a lot. The anesthetic used prior to the treatment numbs the clients from pain, as well, so the procedure is virtually painless.
  • Eyebrow Tattooing: The needle is inserted into the deepest layer of the skin, which cause pain and bleeding.


  • Microblading: Eyebrows look natural after treatment, since they are carefully hand-drawn and produced using organic pigment. Individual hair strokes blend with the client’s real hair.
  • Eyebrow Tattooing: A machine-tattooed eyebrow appears to be a flat solid line drawn above your eyes, making it not look like an eyebrow at all.
