Microblading Over a Previous Procedure

By November 19, 2019Microblading

A common question asked about eyebrow microblading is, can you have microblading done over a previous procedure, such as an old tattoo or even an old microblading session? The answer is yes … probably.

How Long Ago Was the Procedure?

The more recent the previous procedure, the less likely they will be able to be covered up. Fresh ink, especially tattoo ink, will only be more noticeable if you darken it even more with a new microblading procedure.  If you have a faded, old tattoo, or if you notice your old microbladed eyebrows have faded, you have a much better chance of being able to have a new microblading procedure done.

Microblading Eyebrow Shape

Whether or not you are able to get microblading done over a previous procedure depends largely on your eyebrow shape. If your previous procedure is outside the lines of what your new brow would be, your technician may advise you that you will need to remove the old pigment or ink in order to have your eyebrows properly microbladed.

Microblading Eyebrow Tint

Your skin tone, as well as the color of your eyebrows and hair, will help determine whether or not you are able to have microblading done over a previous procedure. If you have dark skin, hair, and eyebrows, it will be much easier to cover over something that just doesn’t work. The lighter your skin tone, hair, and eyebrows, the more difficult it can be to cover over it, especially if you want it to look as natural as possible.

Microblading Over Tattoos

Eyebrow tattoos use a different type of ink than the pigment used during a microblading treatment. Tattoo ink usually fades to a blue or green color. This makes it difficult to cover over a tattoo with microblading, especially if you have light brown or blonde hair. If you have dark hair and dark eyebrows, a natural look may be able to be achieved, if the shape is correct, or able to be covered up by your proper eyebrow shape. Many times, eyebrow tattoos may need to be removed in order to achieve a natural look using microblading. Your technician will be able to tell you for sure. If you do have your eyebrow tattoos removed, you will be able to have your eyebrows microbladed after they are done healing.
