Microblading is an eyebrow architecture technique. It's all about producing the ideal form for each face a completely customized approach for each customers.
The technique is incredibly exact because of the equipment that is used, which is basically like a pen with the nib being a slanted blade with 10-12 tiny needles at the end - needles that do not pierce the skin but only scrape the surface, much like a paper cut.
