Eyebrow biotattoo with henna: what is natural is not ugly!

Recently, more and more salons offer girls a service called "biotattoo". Let's consider the advantages and disadvantages of this procedure, and also answer the most important questions, which are formulated as follows: what is biotattoo and how does it differ from classic tattoo?

Biotattoo: perfect eyebrows without pain

Biotattoo or tattoo: what's what?

Biotattoo is a technique of applying a semi-permanent (short-lasting) pattern to the skin, which uses natural ingredients. In most cases, biotattoo uses henna of various shades in different concentrations (from light brown to chocolate black). Biotattoo is usually used to correct the shape of the eyebrows, while traditional tattooing is also used to change the shape of the lips, the incision of the eyes (on the upper, less often on the lower eyelid).

So, in most cases, biotattoo is used to give shape and color to the eyebrows, but it is also used to create the perfect eyeliner or to mask some skin imperfections. However, such indications require special qualifications from the master.

Perhaps the key difference between tattooing and biotattooing is that the latter technique is non-invasive, as it involves applying pigment without damaging the skin: it not only causes no pain, but also eliminates the risk of infection. In addition, thanks to natural dyes, eyebrows often look more natural and natural. However, much depends on the combination of their color with hair color and phototype in general.

However, unfortunately, compared to the traditional one, biotattoo does not last that long. "Supernatural" eyebrows or perfect arrows can please an average of 20 to 30 days. After 15-20 days, the pigment will begin to be removed from the skin. Well, although biotattoo does not give such a stable and long-lasting effect as permanent makeup, but, nevertheless, for many it is more attractive due to its naturalness and non-traumaticity. For many, the argument is that biotattoo does not cause any pain. In addition, you suddenly need to draw eyebrows in a new way - and with permanent makeup, this is not so easy. In the case of eyebrow biotattoo, the advantages are obvious: if the result does not suit you, then it can always be corrected in a month.

Types of eyebrow biotattoo

You should know that various types of biotattoo can be used to correct eyebrows. Masters work in several of the most common techniques:

  • Shoting, or the so-called shading.
  • Drawing, it is also a “hair technique”, when the master draws hairs.
  • "Oriental method": using this technique of biotattoo, the master arranges the lines of "hairs" of the eyebrows somewhat chaotically.

Eyebrow biotattoo procedure

The eyebrow biotattoo procedure is carried out, as a rule, in four stages.

  • Choice of eyebrow shape and pigment shade. A biotattoo master must have the skills of an experienced make-up artist who is able to assess the features of appearance, color type, take into account the natural color of hair and skin, and, based on these data, select the most appropriate shape of the eyebrows, as well as the shade of henna.
  • Skin preparation. The place of application of biotattoo, the same eyebrows, must be thoroughly cleaned and degreased so that the pigment is evenly and firmly distributed over the skin without “ripples”.
  • Immediately after the preparation of the skin or in parallel with this stage, a mixture of the optimal shade for semi-permanent coloring is prepared (in many cases it takes time to infuse).
  • Eyebrow drawing. Using special brushes and the above techniques, the master forms the eyebrows. After application, the paint should dry for about 20 minutes, after which it is washed off with water. The staining time, however, depends on the initial color and structure of the eyebrow hairs.
  • Salon biotattoo procedure for eyebrows with henna usually lasts about 30-40 minutes. The eyebrow biotattoo procedure can be performed both in the salon and at home (unless, of course, you are confident in your artistic abilities).

    Who is contraindicated biotatuage

    Biotatuage has practically no contraindications. Pregnant and breastfeeding women can also afford this procedure as it is safe and as natural as possible. An exception may be individual intolerance to henna, as well as some dermatological diseases, since henna can provoke their exacerbation.
