Microblading vs Machine

So what's the difference?

It’s very simple. Both are tattooing techniques, one by hand, and one by machine.

Microblading is one of the oldest forms of tattooing and uses a hand tool method which is quieter and more calming than a machine. This type of brow results in VERY FINE AND NATURAL looking hair simulation.

It uses the body’s pendulum motion, pulling the tool through the skin.  It’s also known as Feather Brows, Embroidery Brows, 3D Brows, and Brow Etching, but don’t be fooled. They are the same thing.

You can achieve hair strokes or shading with this technique depending on the artist’s skill level. Shauna is trained in all modalities and will customize the right look for you.

BEAUTYINK® Microblading will last several years depending on the pigment deposit, then fade slowly and blur over time.

One session will last about 12 months, and a follow up is recommended for a long lasting look. Our clients generally return every 3-6 years for a refresh appointment making this a fabulous return on your beauty investment.

Machine Methods use either a rotary or a digital device with an oscillating motion that runs the needle up and down, perforating the skin with pigment.

Hair strokes would be difficult to differentiate between the machine and the microblading technique at a glance. 

These simulated hairs are not “mirror images” from one brow to another. They flow with the natural hairs growing in that area. This is one of the ways to create a natural look, and it can last up to 3 years depending on your lifestyle and personal metabolism.

Shading/Powder fill with a machine is covering the brow design with a consistent colour to create a uniformed look. The edges are crisp and defined resulting in a more clean look. The fronts can be softened for a ombre’ effect.

These solid fills contain more pigment and will hold the colour in the skin longer but with less ability for modification in the future.

Do you know the difference?

Powder Fill

A powder filled brow is a soft, structured looking brow mimicking the use of eye shadow or a smudged look. The brow shape is created and filled in and will soften as it heals. This is great for those wanting a defined, natural “makeup look”. A refresh is recommended every 3 years.

We recommend 1-2 sessions for the completed look, but you will see noticeable results in one session.

Nano Hair Strokes

BEAUTYINK® Nano Stroke Brow

This brow is created using the same type of equipment as a powder brow or solid fill brow but just using a single needle. Once your shape has been drawn, each hair stroke is individually implanted with pigment to give the appearance of “hairs.”  This is great for those wanting a stronger, more natural look. A refresh is recommended every 2-3 years.

We recommend 2-3 sessions for the completed look, but you will see noticeable results in one session.

Hybrid Brow

Hybrid Eyebrows

A hybrid brow is a combination of hair strokes and powder shading which is fabulous for those who that have sectional hair loss within their brows and need targeted density. This combination can look very natural when combined with the person’s existing hair.

We recommend 2-3 sessions for the completed look, but you will see noticeable results in one session.

Client Testimonials

"After many years of dealing with over plucked and poorly stenciled brows, I finally made the decision to go to Shauna and have had my eyebrows fixed. I must say that of all the aesthetic choices I have made over the years (and there have been numerous/costly ones) this has been the best most rewarding decision I have made.

Shawna crafted brows beyond what my expectations were. Not only does my forehead (my whole face) look more balanced but the eyebrows themselves look full, sexy and natural. She is without a doubt a master of her craft.

Further, she spent long hours with me on top of my eyebrows to deliver a natural looking eyeliner. Although the process was a struggle at times as this area was sensitive for me, she was patient and supported/talked me through every step of the way. I can confidently say she delivered a caring attitude on top of the exceptional tattooing work she provides.

She tailored her approach for my unique needs as she took the time/used different tools in her method so that the process would be as smooth and as painless as possible. It is amazing to not only have extra time in the morning, but to look in the mirror and feel natural and beautiful. I am very grateful for her work and look forward to my future touch ups with her."

"Shauna of BEAUTYINK® is someone I trust full heatedly with my with face. If you want the best in Vancouver, this is the place to go. Not only is Shauna fully trained in microblading, hair stroke, powder fill and pretty much any permanent makeup technique you're looking for, she is educated in colour theory, pathogen prevention and disinfection protocols.

I feel safe and comfortable when I go to visit her, and I know her more than 10 years of experience and extensive training will never let me down. Don't settle for a "cheaper" option, because you get what you pay for ladies! Get it done right the first time so that you love your results and they last for years.

Thank you for my skillfully executed brows and liner Shauna!

"I had such an amazing experience with Shauna at BEAUTYINK® ! I have wanted to get my eyebrows done for several years, but the thought of trusting someone to permanently apply something to a prominent area of my face had me gun shy.

I recently decided it was time to take a chance, and I am ecstatic over the results. Shauna provided me with a pain free, comfortable experience, and the quality of her work so exceeded my expectations!

She is truly a talented artist, and today I received a thank you card from her in the mail?!!! This wasn’t just a great customer experience, I am blown away by how great I now feel when I look in the mirror, and the great lengths Shauna went to in making me feel like a valued customer!"

"Thank you so much for making my life easier!

You've perfected my eyebrows even better than what I expected or could ever do. You truly are amazing at what you do. Your experience and professionalism is phenomenal.

Thank you for making me feel so comfortable every time!"

Cassandra Ariken

"I began to do research on professionals who did microblading. BEAUTYINK® came up in my search and I liked what I saw and the feedback received. I was being cautious because the procedure is somewhat permanent and I have seen bad jobs that women have had to live with.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time I became more determined. Then after completing a regiment of chemotherapy, my eyelashes have not fully returned. Thus, I always looked pale and sickly.

So I began to contemplate ‘eyeliner’ instead of microblading (I had already had this procedure done 3 years prior). I was hesitant because the procedure was so close to my eyes AND I live 1500km from Beauty Ink.

I decided to take the plunge and called Shauna. She was able to ease my anxiety about the procedure and so I booked an appointment with her. Shauna then blows my mind and swells my heart when she tells me that because I was a cancer patient - the procedure would be a gift to me!

I arrived into Vancouver after traveling for 18 hours. Upon entering the location I felt at ease. I appreciated Shauna’s straightforwardness because she obviously cared about her clients and quality of her work.

I LOVE my eyeliners! I will recommend Shauna's services and plan to return for more!"

"I have the distinct honor of being one of BEAUTYINK®'s very first clients. And I can honestly say I will NEVER allow anyone but BEAUTYINK® to work on my face.

I have returned through the years to have my brows touched up, and have added the liner to my work done. BEAUTYINK® never fails to impress. Their attention to detail, eye for colour, and meticulous hygiene routines, if you are serious about getting work done, then don't waste your time with anyone else.

Head straight to BEAUTYINK®. Otherwise, you may find yourself doubling up on costs as BEAUTYINK® is doing a lot of corrective work now as the microblading phenomena explodes and the area of cosmetic tattoo remains un monitored.

Thank you BEAUTYINK® for the amazing work you've done on me, and all the future work you will do on me!!!"

Alison Batchelor

                                             Benefits of Eyebrow Tattooing


Eyebrow tattooing, also known as microblading or eyebrow embroidery, is a cosmetic procedure that involves depositing pigments into the skin to create the appearance of fuller, well-defined eyebrows. Here are some potential benefits of eyebrow tattooing:

  1. Enhanced Brow Shape and Definition: Eyebrow tattooing can help create a more defined and symmetrical shape for your eyebrows. The procedure can fill in sparse areas, correct asymmetry, and improve the overall appearance of your brows. It can give your face a more polished and groomed look.

  2. Time-Saving: One of the major advantages of eyebrow tattooing is that it saves time in your daily makeup routine. You won’t need to spend as much time filling in your brows with pencils or powders since the tattooed eyebrows will already have a defined shape and color. This can be especially beneficial for individuals with thin or overplucked eyebrows.

  3. Natural-Looking Results: Skilled professionals can create eyebrow tattoos that closely resemble natural eyebrow hairs, resulting in a more realistic and natural appearance. The tattooed eyebrows can blend seamlessly with your existing brow hairs, making them indistinguishable from the real thing.

  4. Long-Lasting Results: Eyebrow tattoos are semi-permanent and can last for one to three years, depending on individual factors and aftercare. This means you won’t have to worry about daily maintenance or touch-ups as you would with traditional brow makeup.

  5. Confidence Boost: Well-shaped and defined eyebrows can enhance your overall facial features and contribute to a more balanced and attractive appearance. Eyebrow tattooing can help boost your confidence by providing you with eyebrows that frame your face beautifully and make you feel more put together.

  6. Convenience: With eyebrow tattooing, you don’t have to worry about your eyebrows smudging, fading, or rubbing off, even during activities like swimming or exercising. The pigments used in the procedure are designed to be long-lasting and resistant to fading, giving you peace of mind and convenience in your daily life.

It’s important to note that choosing a skilled and experienced professional to perform the procedure is crucial to achieve desirable results. Additionally, individual experiences with eyebrow tattooing can vary, and it’s essential to communicate your desired brow shape and color with the artist beforehand. They can help guide you in selecting the right technique and shade that best suits your facial features and preferences.
