3D brow embroidery may sound futuristic, but it is actually the latest trend in semi-permanent makeup to come out of Singapore and Malaysia. You may have heard of it as “hair strokes” or “microblading” or “cosmetic tattooing”…. All fancy names to describe the same process of using a hand tool or traditional tattoo machine to etch semi-permanent pigment into the skin.
…I know. When you think of eyebrow tattoos, you conjure up images of your old Aunt Agatha and those straight, blueish-gray caterpillars that look like they might crawl off her face any second. Those are NOT what we’re talking about. 3D brows are not a weird color and they do not look like they were drawn on with a crayon. It looks remarkably like real hair.

What is 3D brow embroidery?
3D eyebrow embroidery is semi-permanent pigment that’s pushed into the surface of the skin with a fine blade or needle to mimic the growth of your already existing hair (if there is any, that is) and create bolder, natural-looking brows. When it’s done right you can hardly believe it’s not real hair.
What can 3D brow embroidery do for you?
3D brow embroidery can give you thicker, darker, perfectly shaped eyebrows.
What is the process of 3D brow embroidery?
The hand tool uses tiny little blades made out of a series of tiny needles. Or the same process is used with a rotary permanent makeup tattoo machine. The procedure takes about 2 hours and costs $425 with two touch ups included. Inquire within for current specials
Why choose 3D brow embroidery over traditional permanent makeup?
Unlike permanent makeup, 3D brow embroidery creates hair strokes, which gives the client a more natural looking appearance of hair. Before and after photos show dramatic results, even when the clients began with sparse eyebrow hair or none at all.
Will you need a touch up appointment?
Strokes are shallow so the pigment doesn’t go deep into the skin and the color exfoliates away after a year or two. For this reason you’ll need to make a touch up appointment a few years down the road. Many women prefer this because it means they are not stuck with their brows forever. When the time comes for your touch up appointment you’ll probably want to change up the style or color of your brows anyways.
