Hair Strokes (Microblading or Nano-Brows)
Microblading or Nano-Brows are common terms used to describe two different methods of creating a realistic hair stroke effect. The hair stroke effect can be achieved by both Manual(Microblading) or Machine method (Nano-Brows). Hair strokes can be done alone or combined with shading to give a more realistic look (see my Signature Brows). The manual method of Microblading uses a manual powered tool that has a row of several very fine needles to create a thin hair-like mark across the brow. The manual technique (Microblading) is not ideal for oily/acne prone skin, thin skin, skin prone to Keliod scars or clients with certain skin conditions. The machine method (Nano-Brows) is done with a digital machine designed for permanent makeup on the face and is ideal for all skin types. Both techniques allows for an extremely fine natural looking hair stroke that will fade with time and the techniques is decided by the artist based on the individual client.

A.R.T. stands for Areola Reconstructive Tattooing. It is a form of tattooing in which pigments are implanted into the dermal layer of skin to create a realistic 3-D nipple and/or Areola. A.R.T. can be done to create a completely new nipple/Areola when one or both are missing. It can also be used to fix imperfections,asymmetries, scars or boost coloration on existing Areolas.
