Can Microblading cover an old tattoo?

Microblading can be used to cover and correct the shape or color of an old tattoo, assuming the color of the previous tattoo has faded sufficiently, and the skin has not been tattooed too many times.

Since microblading is such a shallow procedure, it doesn’t deposit as much pigment as tattooing, and it can’t compete with the pigment of a dark tattoo. If the tattoo has faded and is relatively light, then microblading can usually be effective at enhancing the appearance of the brows, but adding natural hair-like strokes that microblading is famous for.

Since tattooing is such a deep procedure, it tends to create scar tissue, and sometimes people who have had their brow area tattooed multiple times will have a thicker skin texture above their brows, which doesn’t hold microblade pigment as well. With these clients, it often takes extra sessions to cover the old tattoo effectively. Generally, this is only an issue when a client has had the brows tattooed several times.

In the case of darker tattoos, it is possible to use a combination of darker and lighter microblade strokes to cover the tattoo, and create the illusion of layered hair strokes. With lighter tattoos, the microblade artist can usually cover it up with a standard microblade application and pigment color.

Microblading can be used to enhance an existing eyebrow, fill in an eyebrow that has less density due to hair loss, or that is not visible because of blonde or gray hairs. Microblading can create eyebrows from scratch, for a client who has total hair loss from Alopecia, thyroid conditions, or age related eyebrow thinning. The Brows by Bodine studio is located in the North Dallas area.
