About a couple of months ago, I decided that I wanted to go through with getting my eyebrows microbladed. I don’t have any tattoos, permanent ink, because of my very large fear of anything permanent on my body. So SEMI-permanent makeup seemed like the better way to go for me! I was very nervous, and I went to various different people that I knew that went to get theirs done, finally choosing the best artist! Beauty Mark in Honolulu, HI!

I have a nickel allergy so I was very aware of the risk I was taking, and I did a lot of research leading up to my appointment. I made it a point to tell my artist right away of my allergies, so that she could let me know in advance whether I should go through with this or not. My artist at Beauty Mark was gracious enough to research the ingredients, as well as the tools that they use, to make sure that nickel was not in any of the pigments or tools.
The day of my appointment, I went to the salon, and was extremely nervous. Jenn could tell that I was, and she put me at ease right away. The process itself lasted only about 45 minutes, and to my surprise, was not overly painful at all. There is a numbing cream that is applied. When I was done, I was given after care instructions, and was on my way. Do not get them wet for 48 hours following your first appointment.
In the coming days, you will peel a little, and remember do NOT take off the flakes that are coming off your skin. Let it fall off naturally. If you get a little itchy, rub Aquaphor with a q-tip and you should be ok. You’ll start to see little patches, do not freak out, this is just the healing patches, and those patches will fill once the color comes up to the service.
After Day 30 you will go in for a touch up appointment that you will most likely schedule when you go in for your initial visit. My touchup appointment lasted for about 30 minutes, and was again, the same procedure as my first visit, but just a little quicker.
I’m literally, OVER the MOON, and pleased with my results and my entire experience. Jennifer Kim at Beauty Mark, you are a genius!!
